Major risk factors for coronary heart disease were assessed in two populations of Tanzania, one on a fish diet (FD) living along the coast of Lake Nyasa, and the other, mainly on a vegetarian diet (VD), living in a farming area. Lower blood pressure values were found in the FD subjects (n=618) vs. VD (n=618) (systolic blood pressure, SBP, 120±15 vs. 135±20,P<0.01; diastolic blood pressure, DBP, 70±9 vs. 78±11,P<0.01, respectively). In an FD subgroup (n=61), total cholesterol (TC) (122 vs. 136… CONTINUE READING
