  1. Height, infant-feeding practices and cardiovascular functioning among 3 or 4 year old children in three ethnic groups.

    Article - En anglais

    Barker recently hypothesized that factors affecting prenatal and infant growth are related to adult blood pressure and CVD mortality.

    Predictions from Barker's hypothesis in regard to infant feeding were tested among a sample of 3 or 4 year old children.

    The relationship of infant-feeding characteristics (duration of breast-feeding, times of introduction of high fat, high carbohydrate, high potassium foods and table salt) to indicators of cardiovascular functioning (resting blood pressures and heart rates, and heart rate response to graded activity) while controlling for anthropometric (height, sum of seven skinfolds, BMI).
