Alcohol intake and serum lipids in a Japanese population.
Previous epidemiological and clinical studies have shown that alcohol, which increases high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels, has an anti-atherogenic effect.
But data on the effects of alcohol on low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol are scarce.
In this paper a cross-sectional study on the associations of alcohol in graded doses with serum lipids in a Japanese population is presented.
The daily alcohol intake of 832 Japanese men aged 35-59 was determined and the subjects were divided into five categories according to their daily alcohol consumption.
