Abstract

Fasting serum cholesterol was determined in 1960 and 1967 on 2530 subjects representing the biracial community of Evans County, under C.D.C. laboratory control and employing the Abell-Kendall method (1). For each age-race-sex cohort, mean serum cholesterol increased over the seven years of follow-up, as a function of age and body mass (exemplified for males in Figure 1).
