Featured Issues: Iranian Journal of Pediatrics Vol. 22

Today we will be featuring issues from vol.22 of the Iranian Journal of Pediatrics. Here are some of the highlights from each issue:

Martial Arts have been known as a means to learn self-defense, expand inner spirituality and adjust behaviour. In vol.22 no.1, 
Ziaee et al. compare two different types of Japanese martial arts, Karate and Judo, and their influences on adolescent behaviour in "Anger in Adolescent Boy Athletes: a Comparison among Judo, Karate, Swimming and Non Athletes". The anger rate of each participant was assessed using the "Adolescent Anger Rating Scale" questionnaire. Results found that karateka (the adolescents practicing Karate) and swimmers had a significantly lower anger rate than judoka (the adolescents practicing Judo) and non-athletes. Based on these results, anger control may not be influenced by Judo but may be influenced in a positive way by Karate.

In issue 3, "Relationship between Blood Pressure and Passive Smoking in Elementary School Children" has Seyedzadeh et al. exploring the correlation between exposure to cigarette smoke and blood pressure in elementary school students. Parents of 80 elementary school children exposed to cigarette smoke and 80 elementary students not exposed to cigarette smoke were asked questions on their smoking status and health. The children then underwent physical examinations. The results showed that elementary school children exposed to cigarette smoke had higher rates of systolic and diastolic blood pressure than elementary school children not exposed to cigarette smoke.
