Abstract
The acyl pattern of adipose tissue triglycerides and of plasma free fatty acids were determined after 7 yr of diet intervention on elevated plasma cholesterol in 42 men taking part in the smoking-lipid trial of the Oslo Study. Twenty-two of the men were advised to change dietary habits (mainly reduce saturated fat) whereas the remaining 20 were controls. The adipose tissue from men in the intervention group contained relatively more linoleic and linolenic acids and relatively less saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids compared to men in the control group. There were strong correlations between the relative content of several fatty acids in adipose tissue triglycerides and plasma free fatty acid. Furthermore, there was a close correlation between the intake of polyunsaturated fatty acids found in a dietary survey done 2 to 3 yr before this study and the relative content of polyunsaturated fatty acids in adipose tissue.

Abstract
The association between serum cholesterol and blood pressure (BP) has been studied in 16 525 men. The study reveals that these Oslo men in their forties present with a serum cholesterol value which is on average 0.71 mmol/l (27.4 mg/100 ml) higher at diastolic BP greater than 110 mmHg than at BP less than 70 mmHg. According to earlier studies in Oslo, this cholesterol difference alone imparts a 10-year myocardial infarction morbidity difference of 25--30%. These findings might be of practical importance for epidemiological studies and for preventive measures against the two factors. The influence of other variables on the association between blood pressure and cholesterol has been studied in a multivariate analysis. Of these variables, only body mass index and serum triglycerides significantly influence the relationship between blood pressure and cholesterol, whereas age, cigarette smoking, non-fasting blood sugar, season, socioeconomic status, and physical activity at work and leisure do not influence the correlation.

Abstract
Cardiovascular risk factor levels among 40-year olds in Oslo were studied from the early 1970s until the late 1980s. Comparison has been made with similar data for the same period from two other regions in the country. The serum cholesterol level in men decreased from 6.3 mmol/l in 1972-73 to 5.9 mmol/l in 1985-88 and the proportion of men who smoked on a daily basis decreased from 51.8% to 40.8%. The proportion of female smokers increased from 37.4% in 1981-84 to 39.5% in 1985-88. There was a decrease in systolic blood pressure among men from 1972-73 to 1985-88. From 1981-84 to 1985-88 there was a minor increase for both sexes in the proportion of physically inactive for both sexes or those with a body mass index > 30. Prior to 1980 cardiovascular risk factors were most favourable in Sogn og Fjordane, and least favourable in Finnmark, with men from Oslo positioned somewhere in between these counties. With the exception of women's smoking habits and, for both sexes, the degree of physical activity, people living in Oslo in 1985-88 had a more favourable risk factor status than those in Sogn og Fjordane in 1985 and in Finnmark in 1987. Despite a degree of uncertainty because of methodological issues, the results indicate a reduction in risk factors of cardiovascular disease among men in Oslo during the 15 years covered by the study.

Abstract
Coronary heart-disease (C.H.D.) had been reviewed as a "manager's disease". However, deaths from C.H.D. are now said to be more common in groups from the lower social classes than in those of higher socioeconomic status. We have examined wheather these differences in C.H.D. mortality can be explained by differences in the conventional risk factors for C.H.D.
