I've heard other plant based Dr's talk about young Korean soldiers showing signs of early CVD but you would think most Asians countries diet consists of mostly fruits and vegetables so why would they be showing early signs of CVD? They don't give an answer in this article but they do mention it. Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn the Whole foods based Dr. on preventing and reversing CVD talks about young soldiers showing CVD at 18 years old as well.
I just thought it was odd considering you would think Koreans lived on mostly plants, why would they have early signs of CVD?

The way I read that article the Americans had the more developed arteriosclerotic plaques and the Asians had fatty streaks. I'll post for those that don't want to read the entire article although I recommend the read.

It was during the Korean War that doctors thought they had discovered the “real” cause of heart disease. Autopsies on young soldiers killed in action showed well-developed atheromas (arteriosclerotic plaques) in their coronary and carotid arteries. Additionally, fatty streaks of the intima of their arteries, arterioles, and heart muscle existed. While similar fatty streaks were observed in dead Korean and Chinese soldiers, the well-developed atheromas found in American soldiers were conspicuously absent. Analysis of
the plaques found showed it was a saturated fat (palmitic acid). The atheromas also contained quite a lot of a familiar waxy substance—better known as cholesterol."
