Does not protect “heavy” cholesterol

1994/04/01 Elhuyar Zientzia Iturria: Elhuyar aldizkaria

In cholesterol there are two types of fat: light lipoproteins or LDL (Low Density Lipoproteins) (which generate arteriosclerosis) and heavy lipoproteins (called HDL).

Recently, heavy lipoproteins were considered to protect from arteriosclerosis based on epidemiological studies. Those who had a low presence of heavy, light lipoproteins in the blood, thought they had less risk.

However, recent research has shown that when HDL lipoprotein in blood is low, atheroma or arteriosclerosis does not progress.
