  1. Will lowering population levels of serum cholesterol affect total mortality ? Expectations from the Honolulu heart program.

    Article - En anglais

    Major campaigns now underway to reduce the serum cholesterol levels of entire national populations have not given serious consideration to the high rates of non-cardiovascular disease and death associated with low cholesterol levels (<190 mg/dl).

    To explore this problem, the relationships between serum cholesterol levels, measured in 1965-1968 in 7478 Japanese American men in Hawaii, and subsequent total and cause-specific mortality through 1985, were analyzed by multivariate Cox regression to control for potential confounders.
