The Bowling Green Study (BGS) is a 16 year ongoing study of the primary and secondary prevention of atherosclerotic disease (ASD). This paper provides a descriptive analysis of the study, discusses the evolution of the cholesterol retention fraction (a new lipid predictor), and presents a series of tables showing the physical and metabolic characteristics of those patients who developed clinical atherosclerotic disease during the first 16 years of the study.
