Default Bad cholesterol: Itís not what you think

Link to article

Quote:
A diet high in saturated fat mainly boosts the numbers of large-LDL particles, while a low-fat diet high in carbohydrates propagates the smaller forms. The big, fluffy particles are largely benign, while the small, dense versions keep lipid-science researchers awake at night.

Next up, cholesterol lowering drugs for kids....put right into their morning cereals.

I really liked London when I visited, but man, those Brits sure do some wacky stuff sometimes.

As far as CVD risk is concerned they are. That's not to say that having a PUFA intake in excess of your EFA requirements is a good thing but it is less likely to result in you having a heart attack in your 40's than would be the case with a diet containing a similarly excessive amount of SAFA.

If you use anything to "treat" cholesterol, use testosterone.
