A new study finds a third of children, ages 9 to 11, have cholesterol levels considered borderline or high.

In the study of 12,700 9- to 11-year-olds in Houston, researchers found:

•37% had borderline or elevated levels of total cholesterol.

•32% had borderline or low levels of “good” HDL cholesterol.

•36% had borderline or elevated levels of non-HDL cholesterol.

•46% had borderline or elevated levels of triglyceride
