Study: LDL ‘Bad’ Cholesterol May Be Good

Filed under: Study — @ March 1, 2006

We are constantly being bombarded with statin drug advertisements on television that implore us to lower our LDL “bad” cholesterol.

But researchers from the University of Padua, Italy recently released a 12-year study of senior citizens revealing that lower levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in people actually leads to a greater risk of heart disease and death while increased levels reduced their risk of a fatal heart failure.

The lead researcher in the study said the findings will lead to “uncertainty.”

bq. I think they are crystal clear. Everything we have been told about how “bad” LDL cholesterol is hazardous to our health has been yet another scaremongering tactic from our government and those entrusted with providing us with information about our health. Just as the low-fat diet has been found to be a big fat lie in recent studies, so too is this idea about higher levels of LDL cholesterol being bad for our health.
