        For Japanese people to be diagnosed as metabolic syndrome you must have at least three of the following five signs. For men, waist over 90 cm, for women over 80 cm; blood pressure greater than /85 mmHg, neutral fat of mg/dL or more; HDL (good cholesterol) of under 40 mg/dL for men, 50 mg/dL for women; and blood sugar over mg/dL.   No study has shown a positive relationship between hypercholesterolemia and all-cause mortality in the Japanese population. Therefore, a cohort study of years' duration was conducted on participants aged 30 years or older, selected randomly from throughout by:   / Dietary Sources of Sodium in China, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States, Women and Men Aged 40 to 59 Years: The INTERMAP Study.

Introduction. The causal relationship between high levels of serum total cholesterol (TC) and coronary heart disease is well established.
