July 05, 2012We hear a lot about good cholesterol and bad cholesterol ... but just what is 'good cholesterol' good for? How about the fight against Alzheimer's disease! A recent study found high levels of HDL, the good cholesterol, appears to help preserve mental function in older people, while high levels of LDL -- the bad cholesterol have the opposite effect. Scientists learned that some damage from Alzheimer's comes from deposits of sticky protein in vital areas of the brain. They found people with high levels of LDL have more sticky proteins which leads to an increased risk of developing Alzheimer's. To keep your cholesterol in check you should avoid saturated and trans fat foods. Make sure you fill your plate with lean meats, fruits and vegetables.
