it’s only for the last few years that health is being given the importance it deserves – we’re being bombarded by advice from healthcare professionals, fitness trainers, dieticians and various others about how we need to take care of our health through the right diet and regular exercise. And part of this advice includes keeping our cholesterol levels down, the bad cholesterol or LDL that is. We’re also told that we must increase our good cholesterol or HDL levels if we’re to stay in the prime of health. And that’s what we’ve tried to do so far. However, new research proves that neither of the above two statements hold true any longer – low LDL levels and/or high HDL levels are not really as healthy as they were thought to be.
