Sämre kognitiv funktion som barn--okad hjärt-kärlrisk som vuxen. Riskökning kan grundläggas redan i fosterlivet.

Abstract
The neurocognitive development of children is shaped by growth patterns during fetal and early postnatal life, as well as conditions during childhood and adolescence. Adverse factors might harm this development, for example lack of nutrients or under-stimulation of cognitive function. In several contemporary observational studies based on follow-up of cohorts from childhood into adulthood, positive associations have been demonstrated between cognitive function on the one hand and cardiovascular health and longevity of life on the other. Conversely,, poor cognitive function is associated with poorer cardiovascular health, even after adjustment for socio-economic factors. Possible explanations could include that subjects with better... (More)
The neurocognitive development of children is shaped by growth patterns during fetal and early postnatal life, as well as conditions during childhood and adolescence. Adverse factors might harm this development, for example lack of nutrients or under-stimulation of cognitive function. In several contemporary observational studies based on follow-up of cohorts from childhood into adulthood, positive associations have been demonstrated between cognitive function on the one hand and cardiovascular health and longevity of life on the other. Conversely,, poor cognitive function is associated with poorer cardiovascular health, even after adjustment for socio-economic factors. Possible explanations could include that subjects with better cognitive function are better at coping with everyday life stressors, as well as being more informed and compliant regarding healthier lifestyle choices. Even if genetic factors are important in shaping the boundaries of cognitive capacity, it is of great importance to improve environmental conditions in order to safeguard normal neurocognitive development for all children. This might also prove to be of importance for cardiovascular protection, but more research is needed before firm conclusions can be drawn. (Less)
