A great deal of evidence is now available to show that the incidence of myocardial infarction varies from place to place and from time to time. Yudkin (1963) has recently reviewed figures of 'mortality due to arteriosclerotic heart disease, including corronary disease' for 26 countries (Wld Hlth Org., 1961), which show that important differences in prevalence of this disease exist not only between different countries but even within a single country. Moreover, the incidence among migrant…

Aspects of the epidemiology of diverticular disease and ischemic heart disease
TLDR
It is proposed that fiber deficiency may help to cause not only diverticulosis but also ischemic heart disease, which is very closely associated geographically.
Aspects of the epidemiology of diverticular disease and ischemic heart disease
TLDR
It is proposed that fiber deficiency may help to cause not only diverticulosis but also ischemic heart disease, which is very closely associated geographically.
Studies in blood coagulation, diet, and ischaemic heart disease in two population groups in India.
TLDR
It is found that among railway employees in the trade of sweeper the disease is 15 times more common in men from South India as compared with those from North India, and it considered it profitable to look for any significant differences in the haematological factors of the circulating blood between these two population groups.
Epidemiological study of cholelithiasis among railroad workers in India with special reference to causation.
TLDR
This paper attempts to study the incidence of cholelithiasis in a population of known constitution among the Indian railroad workers.
Epidemiology of ischaemic heart disease in India with special reference to causation.
TLDR
The study reported in this paper was undertaken to determine the geographical distribution of the disease in railway populations in various parts of India, and to define the role of the causal influences.

A Behavioral Approach to Prevention of Coronary Heart Disease
Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the most common of all causes of death. In men aged 45–64 years, up to 37% of deaths are attributed to CHD (207). In the U.S.A., the epidemic of CHD has been on the
A cross-sectional investigation of regional patterns of diet and cardio-metabolic risk in India
TLDR
Cardio-metabolic risk factors were highly prevalent in this population and potential means of prevention were found; however, dietary patterns characterized by animal products, fried snacks, or sweets appeared to be positively associated with abdominal adiposity.
Correlation of regional cardiovascular disease mortality in India with lifestyle and nutritional factors.
TLDR
There are large disparities in cardiovascular disease mortality in different Indian states and this can be epidemiologically explained by difference in dietary consumption of fats, milk, sugar and green-leafy vegetables and prevalence of obesity.
Effect of diet on faecal and urine urobilinogen excretion and its possible relationship to the pathogenesis of peptic ulceration.
TLDR
Differences in the faecal urobilinogen concentration between the South Indians versus the North Indians could be reproduced in feeding experiments under controlled conditions were determined.

TLDR
The problem of atherosclerosis, America's number one killer, has become within recent years also the most exciting medical study and Ancel Keys' concept of a "world look" at this problem has caught the imagination medically, much as Willkie's "One World" did politically.
Peptic ulcer in India and its aetiology
TLDR
It is shown that ulcer is more common in wet and humid areas than in the dry and arid regions and parasympathetic overaction also appears to contribute to ulcer formation.
Diet and coronary thrombosis hypothesis and fact.
TLDR
It is evident that some of the epidemiological data do not fit these simple hypotheses, and the chance of Buffering from coronary disease was found to be twice as high as expected.
The absorption of soluble, volatile fatty acids.
Experimental investigations show clearly that the absorption and metabolism of the short chain, water-soluble fatty acids differ in some way from those of the long chain fatty acids insoluble in

THE NUTRITIVE VALUE OF INDIAN FOODS AND THE PLANNING OF SATISFACTORY DIETS.
TLDR
Though almost identical to jowar in fat and mineral content, the above-mentioned major deficiencies in wheat have culminated in pupae with lower weights, which seems from the lowest pupal weights observed, that due to lack of these essential amino acids, the available energy cannot be chanelised for larval growth.
On the extent of hydrolysis of triglyceride ester bonds in the lumen of human small intestine during digestion.
TLDR
It is clear that fatty acids fed to human subjects in the form of triglycerides are absorbed from the small intestine to a greater extent as free fatty acids than as glycerides.
