Cardiovascular risk factors in a Melanesian population apparently free from stroke and ischaemic heart disease: the Kitava study.

J. Intern. Med. 1994 Sep;236(3):331-40.
PubMed Citation Journal Link

The lower serum cholesterol may provide some additional benefit. Differences in dietary habits may explain the findings.
