There is a strong inverse association between educational attainment and coronary heart disease (CHD) mortality in men in the USSR Lipid Research Clinics (LRC) Study.
Less educated men were characterized by higher mean blood pressure, high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), cigarettes smoked and by lower mean low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and body mass index (BMI).
With respect to nutritional variables, less educated men were characterized by higher mean energy per kg body weight and alcohol intake and by lower mean intake of fat, saturated, mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids, cholesterol, sucrose, and other sugars.
The Keys score closely predicted the differences in plasma cholesterol among the educational groups in the randomly selected sample.
