Older children who have a high body mass index could develop serious heart disease risks by their 16th birthday.
A study finds such children between the ages of 9 and 12 are more likely to have high blood pressure, cholesterol and blood insulin levels as teenagers.
All of those conditions are risk factors for heart disease.
