The harm of low-fat high-carbohydrate diets in cholesterol uptake in the brain.

JustMEinT has a good article on cholesterol, while mostly not referring to it in relation to heart disease, it non-the-less deals with the importance of cholesterol in our bodies and especially the brain. Following is an exerpt.



Much research is also being uncovered now on the advantages of high HDL cholesterol levels, besides the study we mentioned above in direct relation to Alzheimer’s. A study appearing in the American Journal of Cardiology earlier this month (February 2011) showed that the higher men’s HDL cholesterol levels, the longer they lived and the more likely it was that they would reach the age of 85.4 A diet with adequate amounts of saturated fat is essential to keeping HDL high cholesterol levels. Those with deficiencies and suffering from neurological disorders need to consider a diet that is high in saturated fat, in stark contrast to the mainstream dietary advice for low-fat diets that might be causing many of these late-in-life diseases.
