Dietary Fat, Serum Cholesterol Levels and Incidence of Atherosclerosis in Delhi
Very little information is available about the incidence of coronary heart disease in India, or of factors considered responsible for it. In a previous paper, the incidence of atherosclerosis as judged by electrocardiogram, the fat intake, and serum cholesterol levels in 2 low-income groups (industrial and rural) in Delhi were investigated. These data in high-income groups in Delhi have now been studied and the results compared. There were considerable differences in the findings in the 2 groups.
