This study can be accessed at: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC487855/pdf/brheartj00329-0083.pdf
The study concerns 1,150,000 railway workers between the ages of 18-55 years serving on the railways in different parts of India.
In the north the consumption of fats, (most of which are animal fats), is 19 times more than in the south, heart disease is 7 times less in the north than in the south. Moreover, while the milk fats eaten in the north have a preponderance of saturated fatty acids, the seed oils used in the south are mainly composed of unsaturated fatty acids.
