Relationship of dietary intake to subsequent coronary heart disease incidence: The Puerto Rico Heart Health Program.
TLDR
Multivariate analysis demonstrated an independent inverse relation of carbohydrate intake from legumes to CHD incidence, and the apparent protective effect of complex carbohydrate merits further investigation. Expand
Hematocrit and risk of coronary heart disease: the Puerto Rico Heart Health Program
TLDR
Hmatocrit was determined in 2555 rural and 6151 urban men participating in the Puerto Rico Heart Health Program, a prospective epidemiologic study of coronary artery disease (CAD), and was associated with cigarette smoking, higher relative weight, higher blood pressure, and higher serum cholesterol. Expand
Diet and Its Relation to Coronary Heart Disease and Death in Three Populations
TLDR
Results suggest additional areas for research, but none of them would lead to an alteration of currently recommended preventive diets that emphasize lowering fat intake, because in isocaloric diets the logical way to balance a decreased fat intake is to increase the consumption of foods containing starch. Expand
An apparent inverse relationship between serum cholesterol and cancer mortality in Puerto Rico.
TLDR
The association between serum cholesterol and cancer mortality in the rural area and in the young urban area suggests that further investigation is needed to determine whether the relationship is causal, a secondary association to some other unidentified set of primary factors, or merely a physiological reaction to early and undiagnosed stages of the cancer process. Expand
Reversal of hyperkalemic cardiotoxicity with hypertonic saline.
TLDR
A rapid intravenous administration of hypertonic saline might be a lifesaving procedure in selected cases of hyperkalemic cardiotoxicity, and the possible mechanisms involved were discussed. Expand
Coronary heart disease risk factors in men with light and dark skin in Puerto Rico.
TLDR
The association of skin color with coronary heart disease risk factors was studied in 4,000 urban Puerto Rican men and skin color showed a small but statistically significant association with SBP. Expand
Hematocrit and risk of coronary heart disease: the Puerto Rico Health Program.
TLDR
Results provide further insight concerning the issue of the potential impact of elevated Hct as an independent risk factor contributing to the incidence of CHD mortality and morbidity. Expand
Physical activity and prostate cancer mortality in Puerto Rican men.
TLDR
Physical activity did not predict prostate cancer mortality in this group of Puerto Rican men and analyses by age group, overweight status, or vigorous physical activity also did not show a significant association between physical activity and prostate cancer deaths. Expand
Milk consumption, calcium intake, and decreased hypertension in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico Heart Health Program study.
TLDR
There was an inverse relationship between milk consumption and definite hypertension in urban Puerto Rican men and older rural men, and an estimate of total calcium intake from food, principally from milk, was used. Expand
