The authors examined the relative importance of dietary sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium intakes as correlates of blood pressure in a cross-sectional analysis of 987 black and 1,043 white 9- and 10-year-old girls from Richmond, California, Cincinnati, Ohio, and Washington, DC, who were enrolled in the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Growth and Health Study between January 1987 and May 1988.
Dietary intake was measured using a 3-day food record.
Dietary cation intake was not associated with blood pressure in black girls.
An inverse association between magnesium intake and diastolic (fifth Korotkoff phase) blood pressure was found in white girls (p<0.01).
