Dietary Counselling Introduced at an Early Age Leads to Better Cardiovascular Health in Adulthood


The Special Turku Coronary Risk Factor Intervention Project investigated the long-term effects of dietary counselling on cardiovascular health. The individuals, who had participated in the trial between ages 7 months and 20 years, were invited to a follow-up study at the age of 26. The results show that the intervention group who received dietary counselling had lower serum cholesterol level and better insulin sensitivity than those in the control group.
