  1. Fulltext. Adiposity and stroke among older adults of low socioeconomic status : the Chicago stroke study.

    Article - En anglais



    The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that overvall and truncal adiposity increase the risk of stroke independent of their association with cardiovascular disease risk factors and other preexisting illness.


    Analyses were conducted of longitudinal data from a poor, biracial cohort of noninstitutionalized adults 65 to 74 years of age who participated in the Chicago Stroke Study from 1965 to 1970.


    Ponderal index (cm/kg1/3) and chests skinfold were significantly associated with systolic and diastolic blood pressure, serum cholesterol and triglycerides, plasma glucose, and smoking.
