Fox News, 02:02

Dr. David Samadi, Fox 5 A-Team member and leading prostate cancer expert, discusses The American Heart Association’s review of cholesterol screening guidelines for children. A firm believer in taking advantage of medical screenings, Dr. Samadi recommends that children be screened for high cholesterol before they reach puberty. Establishing a baseline allows doctors and parents to monitor cholesterol levels in children and modify diet and exercise, if needed. High cholesterol and heart disease are progressive issues and Dr. Samadi believes that identifying these tendencies early can help reduce issues later in life.

Dr. Samadi is Vice Chairman of the Department of Urology and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center.
