The difference in serum cholesterol values between brazilians and japanese brazilians and their life styles



The difference in serum cholesterol values between brazilians and japanese brazilians and their life styles



Tokai Journal of Experimental & Clinical Medicine 4(2): 129-134



The total serum cholesterol levels of Brazilians and Japanese-Brazilians indicated that the mean value for Brazilians was significantly higher. A few factors which might cause this difference were studied. For Japanese-Brazilians, the total cholesterol level does not depend on how long they were living in Brazil. Japanese food does not increase the total cholesterol level when compared to Brazilian food, and coffee is not a very important factor in increasing the total cholesterol level. The intake of sugar and fat seems to have greater effects. [This study is relevant to arteriosclerosis epidemiology].
