  1. Measures of adiposity and coronary heart disease mortality in the Chicago Western electric company study.

    Article - En anglais

    Associations of body mass index (BMI), two measures of percent body fat derived from skin-folds, body weight adjusted for height, triceps and subscapular skinfolds, and their sum, with 22-year coronary heart disease (CHD) mortality were compared in 1707 white men ages 40-55 years at baseline (1958) and free of CHD and cancer in 1961 in the Western Electric Study.

    Because associations of adiposity measures with CHD mortality differed by length of follow-up, analyses were conducted separately for the first 14 years of follow-up and years 15 through 22.

    In Cox regression analyses, none of the adiposity measures was significantly related to CHD mortality for the first 14 years of follow-up.

    For years 15-22, all adiposity measures, except triceps skinfold, were significantly related with adjustment for age, as well as eight other covariates.

    These results indicate that a positive relation of adiposity to CHD risk may not become apparent until several years after the assessement of adiposity.
