  • Information has been made available on about 175000 deaths (45% due to vascular disease and 20% due to cancer) among more than 1.4 million individuals followed for an average of 14 years in over 60 prospective studies of blood pressure and blood cholesterol (with data on high-density lipoprotein cholesterol available for a substantial subset of individuals). This represents approximately 95% of the data from all relevant studies.
