Based on studies of school children which have shown that half of those tested have abnormal coronary arteries by the age of 15 this book points out the dangers to children from a high blood cholesterol level, which can result in heart disease due to atherosclerosis. It provides a programme specially designed for children which shows how to modify your family's eating habits without tears and how to give your children the legacy of a life free of heart disease.

Kowalski, author of the popular 8-Week Cholesterol Cure (Harper & Row, 1987), now focuses his cholesterol-reduction plan on children. This diet calls for a 20-25 percent dietary reduction in fat, resulting in a ten percent reduction in blood cholesterol levels. As in his earlier book, Kowalski also recommends adding up to 50 grams of oat bran to further reduce cholesterol levels. (Niacin supplements that played a role in the earlier adult diet are not mentioned here.) While the advice is not poor, there doesn't seem to be enough to justify purchase. Readers would be better served by one book that covers cholesterol reduction for all age groups, such as Eater's Choice by Ron and Nancy Goor ( LJ 4/15/87). Susan E. Holmer, Peninsula Lib. System, San Mateo, Cal.
