During the public information programme, « Frankfurter Gesundheitstage » 1990 (Frankfurt Days for Health), organised by the Frankfurt Public Health Office, informations on healthy lifestile and prevention of diseases were available, as well as a screening programme for cardiovascular diseases. 1,875 persons took part in that screening programme.
Their total cholesterol, blood pressure and body weight were measured; they were asked about their age and body weight, activities in sports, smoking behaviour, medicamentation, and their personal and family history for cardiovascular diseases.
After accounting for sex and age, the results were compared with the representative epidemiological data of the DHP-Surveys, as well as other representative data of Germany.
Body mass index was lower than expected; the heavily obese underrepresented.
