Abstract

Of519 coronary-prone middle-aged men participating in the Chicago Coronary Prevention Evaluation Program, 416 reported their self- perceived state as one of no tension or tension at various periodic visits over years in the Program. Group mean serum cholesterol was significantly higher by about 4 mg/dl with tension vs. no tension (slight, moderate, or marked). This relationship was independent of weight change, intercurrent infection, use of medication, and month of year.
