Today's Globe: children's health insurance, blood pressure in youths, Leslie Lukash

Thousands of Massachusetts children from low-income families could be denied health insurance under new rules imposed by the Bush administration late last week. The rules could cut federal matching funds for a state-run program that is a key component of the state's health insurance initiative.

More than 1 million US youngsters have undiagnosed high blood pressure, leaving them at risk of eventually developing organ damage, a study suggests.

Dr. Leslie Lukash, a medical examiner who helped identify the remains of Nazi war criminal Josef Mengele and studied the deaths of people who disappeared during Argentina's Dirty War, has died at age 86, his son said yesterday.
