aMyocardial infarction, angina pectoris, and cerebral stroke/brain haemorrhage combined.

bPrevalence rates from logistic regression estimates.

cP-value for difference between unexposed and exposed groups. Age-specific and total crude rates tested by Fisher’s exact chi-square tests. Total age-adjusted rates tested by likelihood ratio tests.

dExpected number of cases.
