Moreover, the role of adiposity on cardiovascular disease (CVD) and non-CVD mortality remains to be clarified among certain population subgroups (e.g., those with diabetes). Reliable assessment of these associations is particularly important in China, where mean levels of adiposity and rates of CVD, especially stroke, differ importantly from those in Western populations.
