The Child and Coronary Heart Disease
Environmental, Nutritional and Medical Issues
This book addresses the causes of coronary arterial disease. There is good evidence that lesions may appear in the coronary arteries of infants and children, even to the point at times of calcium deposits in 'normal' subjects at birth. The hazards of an environment replete with calcium, phosphorus and steroids are emphasized. Current trends in increased consumption of Vitamin D, calcium and phosphorus in the light of environmental surfeit are questioned.
