Now the hazards of reducing HDL grew to become the problem. “In the search35 for an optimum remedy for averting or correcting atherosclerosis,” because the Framingham investigators famous in 1979, “the perfect lipid reaction would seem to be the person who increases HD lipoprotein because it lowers LD lipoprotein. healing maneuvers that impact just one of those lipoprotein particle platforms in a positive method, whereas adversely affecting the opposite, can be much less promising. …” Diets that reduced ldl cholesterol by means of changing saturated fats with polyunsaturated fat may have finished one of these balancing act, yet there has been valid drawback that polyunsaturated fat have been carcinogenic, and so the AHA had easily steered fats relief more often than not.
