An autosomal recessively inherited disorder caused by mutation of ATP-BINDING CASSETTE TRANSPORTERS involved in cellular cholesterol removal (reverse-cholesterol transport). It is characterized by near absence of ALPHA-LIPOPROTEINS (high-density lipoproteins) in blood. The massive tissue deposition of cholesterol esters results in HEPATOMEGALY; SPLENOMEGALY; RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA; large orange tonsils; and often sensory POLYNEUROPATHY. The disorder was first found among inhabitants of Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay, MD.
A group of polycyclic compounds closely related biochemically to TERPENES. They include cholesterol, numerous hormones, precursors of certain vitamins, bile acids, alcohols (STEROLS), and certain natural drugs and poisons. Steroids have a common nucleus, a fused, reduced 17-carbon atom ring system, cyclopentanoperhydrophenanthrene. Most steroids also have two methyl groups and an aliphatic side-chain attached to the nucleus. (From Hawley's Condensed Chemical Dictionary, 11th ed)

Procedures for finding the mathematical function which best describes the relationship between a dependent variable and one or more independent variables. In linear regression (see LINEAR MODELS) the relationship is constrained to be a straight line and LEAST-SQUARES ANALYSIS is used to determine the best fit. In logistic regression (see LOGISTIC MODELS) the dependent variable is qualitative rather than continuously variable and LIKELIHOOD FUNCTIONS are used to find the best relationship. In multiple regression, the dependent variable is considered to depend on more than a single independent variable.

Dietary intake and practices in the Hong Kong Chinese population. (1/1882)

OBJECTIVES: To examine dietary intake and practices of the adult Hong Kong Chinese population to provide a basis for future public health recommendations with regard to prevention of certain chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and osteoporosis. PARTICIPANTS: Age and sex stratified random sample of the Hong Kong Chinese population aged 25 to 74 years (500 men, 510 women). METHOD: A food frequency method over a one week period was used for nutrient quantification, and a separate questionnaire was used for assessment of dietary habits. Information was obtained by interview. RESULTS: Men had higher intakes of energy and higher nutrient density of vitamin D, monounsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol, but lower nutrient density of protein, many vitamins, calcium, iron, copper, and polyunsaturated fatty acids. There was an age related decrease in energy intake and other nutrients except for vitamin C, sodium, potassium, and percentage of total calorie from carbohydrate, which all increased with age. Approximately 50% of the population had a cholesterol intake of < or = 300 mg; 60% had a fat intake < or = 30% of total energy; and 85% had a percentage of energy from saturated fats < or = 10%; criteria considered desirable for cardiovascular health. Seventy eight per cent of the population had sodium intake values in the range shown to be associated with the age related rise in blood pressure with age. Mean calcium intake was lower than the FAO/WHO recommendations. The awareness of the value of wholemeal bread and polyunsaturated fat spreads was lower in this population compared with that in Australia. There was a marked difference in types of cooking oil compared with Singaporeans, the latter using more coconut/palm/mixed vegetable oils. CONCLUSION: Although the current intake pattern for cardiovascular health for fat, saturated fatty acid, and cholesterol fall within the recommended range for over 50% of the population, follow up surveys to monitor the pattern would be needed. Decreasing salt consumption, increasing calcium intake, and increasing the awareness of the health value of fibre may all be beneficial in the context of chronic disease prevention.  (+info)

Comparative hypocholesterolemic effects of five animal oils in cholesterol-fed rats. (2/1882)

The hypocholesterolemic efficacy of various animal oils was compared in rats given a cholesterol-enriched diet. After acclimatization for one week, male F344 DuCrj rats (8 weeks of age) that had been fed with a conventional diet were assigned to diets containing 5% of oil from emu (Dromaius), Japanese Sika deer (Cervus nippon yesoensis, Heude), sardine, beef tallow, or lard with 0.5% cholesterol for 6 weeks. After this feeding period, the concentrations of serum total cholesterol and of very-low-density lipoprotein + intermediate-density lipoprotein + low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol in the sardine oil group were significantly lower than those in the other groups. The serum high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol concentration in the Japanese Sika deer oil group was significantly higher than that in the other groups. The atherosclerotic index and liver cholesterol concentration in the sardine oil and Japanese Sika deer oil groups were significantly lower than those in the other groups. The fecal cholesterol excretion by the Japanese Sika deer oil group was significantly higher than that of the other groups, except for the sardine oil group, and the fecal bile acid excretion by the sardine oil group was significantly higher than that of the other groups, except for the lard group. These results suggest that Japanese Sika deer oil reduced the atherosclerotic index and liver cholesterol concentration in the presence of excess cholesterol in the diet as well as sardine oil did by increasing the excretion of cholesterol from the intestines of rats.  (+info)

Comparison of synthetic saponin cholesterol absorption inhibitors in rabbits: evidence for a non-stoichiometric, intestinal mechanism of action. (3/1882)

The hypocholesterolemic activities of pamaqueside and tiqueside, two structurally similar saponins, were evaluated in cholesterol-fed rabbits. The pharmacological profiles of the saponins were virtually identical: both dose-dependently decreased the intestinal absorption of labeled cholesterol 25-75%, increased fecal neutral sterol excretion up to 2.5-fold, and decreased hepatic cholesterol content 10-55%. High doses of pamaqueside (>5 mg/kg) or tiqueside (>125 mg/kg) completely prevented hypercholesterolemia. Decreases in plasma and hepatic cholesterol levels were strongly correlated with increased neutral sterol excretion. Ratios of neutral sterol excreted to pamaqueside administered were greater than 1:1 at all doses, in opposition to the formation of a stoichiometric complex previously suggested for tiqueside and other saponins. Ratios in tiqueside-treated rabbits were less than unity, a reflection of its lower potency. Pamaqueside-treated rabbits exhibited a more rapid decline in plasma cholesterol concentrations than control animals fed a cholesterol-free diet, indicating that the compound also inhibited the absorption of biliary cholesterol. Intravenous administration of pamaqueside had no effect on plasma cholesterol levels despite plasma levels twice those observed in rabbits given pamaqueside orally. These data indicate that pamaqueside and tiqueside induce hypocholesterolemia by blocking lumenal cholesterol absorption via a mechanism that apparently differs from the stoichiometric complexation of cholesterol hypothesized for other saponins.  (+info)

Macroscopic distribution of coronary atherosclerotic lesions in cholesterol-fed rabbits. (4/1882)

In the present study we macroscopically examined a change in the distribution of coronary atherosclerosis in cholesterol-fed rabbits. Rabbits were fed a cholesterol-enriched diet for 15 weeks, then replaced by a normal diet, and were sacrificed at 15, 24, 32 and 42 weeks after the start of the experiment. The coronary atherosclerosis in the cholesterol-fed rabbits was distributed more densely in the proximal portion than in the middle and distal portions, and the lesions were severe at 24 and 32 weeks after the start of the experiment. comparison of lesions in the three portions at these time points showed that the percentages of lesion areas in the proximal portion, the middle portion and the distal portion were approximately 51%, 21 to 25% and 0.2 to 3.7%, respectively. Macroscopic observation of the coronary atherosclerotic lesions showed that the lesions formed over the vessel lumen in the proximal portion within the range of approximately 5 mm from the orifice of the left coronary artery. In the middle portion, the lesions formed predominantly around the orifices of branches as small patchy lesions from 1 to 3 mm in diameter. These findings support previous histopathological reports that suggested that the incidence of stenosis in the proximal portion was high, and the incidence of lesion occurrence in the middle and the distal portions varied. The method, macroscopical investigation of the coronary artery, is useful for analyzing coronary atherosclerosis in the rabbit.  (+info)

Age-related changes in blood coagulation and fibrinolysis in mice fed on a high-cholesterol diet. (5/1882)

To investigate the pathogenesis of hyperlipidemia-induced atherosclerosis, we examined age-dependent changes in platelet activity, blood coagulation and fibrinolysis in susceptibility to a high cholesterol diet (HCD) feeding in male ICR mice. Pretreatment of platelet-rich-plasma from HCD feeding mice for 3 days with epinephrine (300 microM) resulted in a marked enhancement of adenosine 5'-diphosphate (ADP: 0.1 microM) or collagen (0.7 microgram/ml)-stimulated aggregation compared with the same in control mice. Yohimbine as alpha 2-adrenergic blocker antagonized these aggregations in a dose-dependent manner. A significant increase in plasma total cholesterol and VLDL (very low-density lipoprotein)-LDL (low-density lipoprotein)-cholesterol and the liver/body weight ratio was observed in mice fed on HCD for 3 months (3-month HCD mice). In the early phase of this experiment, a significant increase in fibrinogen was observed. In the middle phase, increases in the activity of antithrombin III (ATIII) and alpha 2-plasmin inhibitor (alpha 2-Pl) followed. Plasminogen content gradually decreased in both normal diet and HCD mice throughout the experiment. The activity of plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI) decreased in 3-month HCD mice. Morphological observation of the aortic arch from 3-month HCD mice revealed apparent atheromatous plaques not seen in control mice. These results suggest that 3-month HCD mice can be a convenient hyperlipidemia-induced atherosclerotic model and the changes in platelet activity, coagulation and fibrinolysis in the early phase may be a cause of pathologic changes in this model.  (+info)

Development of atherosclerotic lesions in cholesterol-loaded rabbits. (6/1882)

To examine both of the target vessels and the optimal time of their endothelial denudation to study vascular restenosis after balloon injury in cholesterol-loaded rabbits, we made 36 atherosclerotic rabbits by feeding a hypercholesterol diet, and histologically examined the onset time and the development of atherosclerosis. Atheromatous changes were observed first after the 5th week in the thoracic aorta from the start of the diet, and then extended to the abdominal aorta, coronary artery with time. The atherosclerotic lesions in the thoracic aorta and the proximal portion of the coronary artery showed high-grade concentric intimal thickening with luminal stenosis. The abdominal aortic lesion mildly progressed. In the renal, carotid and femoral arteries, in contrast, slight atheroscleromatous changes developed during the diet period. These results suggest that the thoracic and abdominal aortas and the coronary artery would be suitable as target vessels to study vascular restenosis after balloon injury, and the endothelial denudation of these vessels should be performed between the 8th and 15th week in this diet protocol for an accurate analysis.  (+info)

Macronutrient intake and change in mammographic density at menopause: results from a randomized trial. (7/1882)

To examine the effects of dietary fat intake on breast cancer risk, we are conducting a randomized trial of dietary intervention in women with extensive areas of radiologically dense breast tissue on mammography, a risk factor for breast cancer. Early results show that after 2 years on a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet there is a significant reduction in area of density, particularly in women going through menopause. In women who went through menopause during the 2-year follow-up, the mean decreases in area of density and percentage of density in the intervention group were 11.0 cm2 and 11.0%, respectively, whereas the control group decreased 4.5 cm2 and 5.2%. The purpose of this analysis was to determine whether changes in intake of specific macronutrients could account for the observed reduction in breast density in these women. Differences between 2-year and baseline values of macronutrients (averaged over 3 nonconsecutive days of food intake) were calculated. We examined the effect of dietary variables, adjusted for changes in total calorie intake and weight and for family history of breast cancer, on changes in area of density and percentage of density using linear regression. Reduction in total or saturated fat intake or cholesterol intake was significantly associated with decreased dense area (p < or = .004). The most significant dietary variable associated with reduction in percentage of density was reduction in dietary cholesterol intake (P = 0.001), although reducing saturated fat intake was of borderline significance (P = 0.05). The effect of the membership in the intervention and control groups on change in area of density or percentage of density was reduced by models that included changes in intake of any fat, or cholesterol, or carbohydrates. The observation of an effect of diet at menopause on breast density, a marker of increased risk of breast cancer, may be an indication that exposures at this time have an enhanced effect on subsequent risk.  (+info)

Cholic acid aids absorption, biliary secretion, and phase transitions of cholesterol in murine cholelithogenesis. (8/1882)

Cholic acid is a critical component of the lithogenic diet in mice. To determine its pathogenetic roles, we fed chow or 1% cholesterol with or without 0.5% cholic acid to C57L/J male mice, which because of lith genes have 100% gallstone prevalence rates. After 1 yr on the diets, we measured bile flow, biliary lipid secretion rates, hepatic cholesterol and bile salt synthesis, and intestinal cholesterol absorption. After hepatic conjugation with taurine, cholate replaced most tauro-beta-muricholate in bile. Dietary cholic acid plus cholesterol increased bile flow and biliary lipid secretion rates and reduced cholesterol 7alpha-hydroxylase activity significantly mostly via deoxycholic acid, cholate's bacterial 7alpha-dehydroxylation product but did not downregulate cholesterol biosynthesis. Intestinal cholesterol absorption doubled, and biliary cholesterol crystallized as phase boundaries shifted. Feeding mice 1% cholesterol alone produced no lithogenic or homeostatic effects. We conclude that in mice cholic acid promotes biliary cholesterol hypersecretion and cholelithogenesis by enhancing intestinal absorption, hepatic bioavailability, and phase separation of cholesterol in bile.  (+info)

Low Cholesterol Diet and Nutrition for Heart Disease: diet tips to lower cholesterol naturally. Topics include low cholesterol diet solutions
The idea that dietary cholesterol increases risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) by turning into blood cholesterol is compelling in much the same way that fish oil improves arthritis by lubricating our joints! Dietary cholesterol, chiefly in the form of eggs, has long been outlawed as a causative agent in CHD through its association with serum cholesterol. However, the scientific evidence to support a role for dietary cholesterol in CHD is relatively insubstantial in comparison with the incontrovertible link between its circulating blood relative in low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and CHD. Interpretation of the relationship between dietary cholesterol and CHD has been repeatedly confounded by an often inseparable relationship between dietary cholesterol and saturated fat. It has also been exaggerated by the feeding of unphysiologically high intakes of eggs. Nonetheless, numerous studies have shown that dietary cholesterol can increase serum LDL-cholesterol, but the size of this effect ...
To elucidate the link between the intake of animal fat and asthma, a murine model was developed to examine the effect of dietary cholesterol on pulmonary allergic inflammation. Male C57BL6 mice were fed either a control diet or a diet supplemented with 2% cholesterol. Following sensitization and inhalation exposure to ovalbumin, the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid of mice in the cholesterol group contained higher numbers of eosinophils and elevated levels of IL-5, PGE2, and MCP-1. In addition, dietary cholesterol also resulted in elevated production of IL-4 and IFN-γ by lymphocytes isolated from the lungs. These inflammatory indicators were all significantly correlated with serum cholesterol levels. In contrast to the effect of dietary cholesterol, adding pravastatin to the drinking water significantly reduced eosinophil infiltration and the levels of IL-5, PGE2 and MCP-1 in lavage fluid. Although dietary cholesterol did not alter baseline IL-12 in the lungs, in mice challenged with ovalbumin the ...
The main objective of the present work was to characterize the response of human cholesterol synthesis that occurs within the normal range of cholesterol intake. Our results demonstrate modestly reduced cholesterogenesis with increasing dietary cholesterol levels as assessed by two techniques. Metabolic responses to increased dietary cholesterol potentially include reduced endogenous synthesis, decreased absorption, and increased biliary excretion of cholesterol.7 35 Feedback inhibition of cholesterol synthesis has been well described in animals,20 21 whereas the results of investigations in humans have been somewhat equivocal, with downregulation reported in some6 7 35 36 37 38 39 but not all22 23 24 40 41 42 studies. Nestel and Poyser7 fed 2 normolipidemic and 7 hyperlipidemic subjects diets with either 250 or 750 mg/d cholesterol for ,4 weeks. Cholesterol synthesis, as measured by sterol balance, was suppressed at the higher level of dietary cholesterol in 5 of 9 study participants, including ...
In rats fed on a diet containing 1% cholesterol for 24 h, the decrease in hepatic non-saponifiable lipid synthesis, cholesterogenesis and 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA (HMG-CoA) reductase activity was accompanied by an increase in the proportion of newly synthesized polar sterols in vivo. In these animals there was also a strong inverse correlation between the proportion of polar sterols in the non-saponifiable lipid and hepatic HMG-CoA reductase activity. A similar correlation was not observed in animals fed on a normal diet. Cholesterogenesis in the intestine was not as sensitive to inhibition by dietary cholesterol as was that in the liver, and there was no increase in the polar-sterol content of the newly synthesized non-saponifiable-lipid fraction. ...
Other researchers have since confirmed Ancel Keys square root relationship, adding that dietary cholesterol has greatest effects on serum cholesterol if it is added to a low cholesterol, or cholesterol-free diet. At moderate cholesterol intakes, serum cholesterol changed very little with added cholesterol. A 1997 meta-analysis compiled 9 predictive equations since 1990, calculating that for a 2500 kcal diet, a 1.37-2.68 mg/dl decrease in serum cholesterol could be expected for every 100 mg/day decrease in dietary cholesterol. The prediction based on their meta-analysis was a 2.2 mg/dl decrease in serum cholesterol for every 100 mg/day decrease in dietary cholesterol ...

On average, egg consumption makes up a quarter of the dietary cholesterol intake in the United States, with one large egg containing approximately 185 mg of cholesterol.. However, different studies have come up with varying results in regards to the association between egg intake and CVD risk, depending on the subtype of CVD studied.. For example, several studies in populations from the U.S., Sweden, Iran, and Finland did not find an association between egg intake and the risk of coronary heart disease.. Another study even found that eating seven or more eggs per week was associated with a lower risk of stroke compared with eating less than one egg per week.. For heart failure, however, a study in the U.S. and another one in Sweden found a 20-30% higher risk in those who ate more than one egg per day, but the results only applied to men.. Overall, conclude the researchers, For both dietary cholesterol and egg consumption, the published literature does not generally support statistically ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Role of apolipoprotein E and B gene variation in determining response of lipid, lipoprotein, and apolipoprotein levels to increased dietary cholesterol. AU - Boerwinkle, E.. AU - Brown, S. A.. AU - Rohrbach, K.. AU - Gotto, A. M.. AU - Patsch, W.. PY - 1991. Y1 - 1991. N2 - A large segment of the population is modifying its dietary cholesterol intake to achieve a healthier life-style. However, all individuals do not respond equally. We have investigated the effects that that two physiologically important polymorphisms in the apolipoprotein (apo) E and B genes have on the responses of plasma lipid, lipoprotein, and apolipoprotein levels to a high-cholesterol diet. Over a 6-wk period, individuals were prescribed two diets, one consisting of 300 mg dietary cholesterol/d for 3 wk and one consisting of 1,700 mg dietary cholesterol/d for 3 wk. Total cholesterol, low-density-lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), and apo B levels were significantly increased on the high-cholesterol diet. ...
In the current study, we generated Tg rabbits expressing human EL in the liver and characterized the effects of overexpression of EL on plasma lipoproteins and cholesterol diet-induced atherosclerosis. Consistent with the previous studies,7,15 hepatic expression of EL in Tg rabbits on a chow diet led to a remarkable reduction of plasma TC, phospholipids, HDL-C, and HDL-phospholipids, suggesting that EL indeed plays an important role in maintaining the HDL homeostasis. It should be noted that in Tg rabbits, ≈60% of the EL proteins were present in pre-heparin plasma associated with lipoproteins, with rest of them bound to the luminal surface of endothelial surface heparan sulfate proteoglycans because they are releasable to the circulation by heparin injection. The presence of free EL immunoreactive proteins in the circulation has also been reported in WHHL rabbits3 and humans,27 and measurement of the pre-heparin plasma EL activity showed that high EL activity is associated with high risk of ...
Cholesterol, as commonly measured, doesnt say a lot about your risk of heart disease (HD). People with high cholesterol, low cholesterol, and everything in between die of heart disease. The high cholesterol leads to heart disease model does not explain those observations. A recent refinement to the model involves LDL/HDL size. Large light and fluffy LDL/HDL seems to REDUCE risk of CHD. While small, dense LDL/HDL INCREASES risk of HD. So what affects LDL/HDL size? Saturated fat seems to lead to LDL/HDL of increased size. Carbs, on the other hand, seem to lead to LDL/HDL of reduced size. Unexpected. Read Taubes book for more. So find out the size of your LDL/HDL before worrying. And read Gary Taubes book Good Calories, Bad Calories. Taubes does a superb job at exposing how research does not support common beliefs about heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Heres a collection of links related to the book and Taubes. ...
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in the United States. For years, dietary cholesterol was implicated in increasing blood cholesterol levels leading to the elevated risk of CVD. To date, extensive research did not show evidence to support a role of dietary cholesterol in the development of CVD. As a result, the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans removed the recommendations of restricting dietary cholesterol to 300 mg/day. This review summarizes the current literature regarding dietary cholesterol intake .... Continue Reading → ...
Breast cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer-related death among women. Increased risk of breast cancer has been associated with high dietary cholesterol intake. However, the underlying mechanisms are not known. The nuclear receptor, estrogen-related receptor alpha (ERRα), plays an important role in breast cancer cell metabolism, and its overexpression has been linked to poor survival. Here we identified cholesterol as an endogenous ligand of ERRα by purification from human pregnancy serum using a GST-ERRα affinity column and liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). We show that cholesterol interacts with ERRα and induces its transcriptional activity in estrogen receptor positive (ER+) and triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) cells. In addition, we show that cholesterol enhances ERRα-PGC-1α interaction, induces ERRα expression itself, augments several metabolic target genes of ERRα, and increases cell proliferation and migration in both ER+ and TNBC cells. ...

Some myths busted. Dr Enimil said there were a number of risk factors for cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), such as smoking and sedentary lifestyles, as well as dietary factors such as saturated fat and trans-fatty acids.. However, the risk factors did not include dietary cholesterol intake, he said.. Dr Enimil, who is also a lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi, pointed out that eggs contained more mono-unsaturated fat than saturated fat and that the consumption of eggs did not raise cholesterol levels in 70 per cent of the general population, including those with existing cardiovascular disease.. Raises in cholesterol are usually high-density lipoproteins (HDL) or good cholesterol. The phospholipids in eggs appear to be protective as they reduce fat absorption, decrease fatty liver, increase good cholesterol levels, and reduce body inflammation, the lecturer noted.. He said the risk of cardiovascular disease was greater in people with diabetes ...

Dietary cholesterol has been demonised so much over the years, that we are now wary of our cholesterol levels rising and this damaging our arteries, or causing heart disease.
Hypercholesterolemia was induced in rabbits by feeding Purina Chow supplemented with cholesterol (5 g/kg body weight/day). The serum cholesterol levels of these rabbits increased progressively and after 3 to 5 months were 4 to 9-fold greater than those of the control animals. Decrease in total hemolytic complement was not apparent during the feeding regimen. Morphologic examination of aortae of these hypercholesterolemic rabbits showed typical atherosclerotic intimal plaques. Immunofluorescent microscopy with fluorescein (F)-labeled anti-rabbit C3 showed deposition of C3 in the intimal and inner medial layers as early as 3 months on high cholesterol diet. C3 deposits were also observed in the renal glomeruli and in the walls of coronary arteries. However, fluorescent studies failed to demonstrate the presence of IgG, IgM, and C4 at these sites. Tissues from control animals fed normal diets were negative for immunoglobulins, C3, and C4. These results suggest that the complement system may be ...
You can read them all in detail at the above link, but here are a few reproduced to get you started.. 1. In 1937, Columbia University biochemists David Rittenberg & Rudolph Schoenheimer demonstrated that dietary cholesterol had little or no influence on blood cholesterol. This scientific fact has never been refuted. Why, then, do the proposed 2010 Dietary Guidelines limit dietary cholesterol to less than 300 mg per day - or 200 mg if you are diabetic?. 2. Dietary cholesterol is poorly absorbed, 50 percent at best (Mary Enig, PhD; Michael I. Gurr, PhD, lipid biochemists). According to these lipid biochemists, the more cholesterol you eat, the less cholesterol you absorb. Since our bodies must synthesize between 1200 and 1800 mg of cholesterol daily, why is there any dietary limit?. 3. Cholesterol in food has no affect on cholesterol in blood and weve known that all along. These are the words of Professor Ancel Keys, American Heart Association board member and father of the low fat diet, who, ...
Nutrition: U. may drop advice to limit dietary cholesterol by end of year. advisory panel reviewing national dietary guidelines (for Canada and the U.
This population-based study of women undergoing two successive mammography screenings does not support an association between statin use and change in breast density. However, it remains plausible that statin use alters breast density. Studies have found high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (19, 20), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (19), and dietary cholesterol intake (21) to be associated with breast density, independent of age and BMI.. It is possible that any change in breast density associated with statin use becomes masked when combined with characteristics of statin users, such as high BMI, old age, or concomitant use of hormone therapy. Age and breast density are highly correlated, with breast density decreasing as women age (22). Overweight women tend to have less dense breasts (23). In our study, current statin use at the time of screening and any statin use during the study period was associated with having less dense breasts compared with nonusers even after adjusting for age, ...
Starting a high cholesterol diet may seem incredibly easy. After all, it is just adding in a bowl of oatmeal and a handful of nuts a day, right? Wrong.
The natural variation among inbred strains of mice was used to elucidate the genetic factors underlying the responsiveness to high-fat and high-cholesterol diets. The nine strains examined are the progenitors of recombinant inbred strain sets: C57BL/6J, C57L/J, SWR/J, SJL/J, SM/J, A/J, AKR/J, C3H/HeJ, and DBA/2J. Plasma lipids, liver lipids, the prevalence of cholesterol gallstones, and the size of aortic fatty streak lesions were examined after 18 wk of consumption of the diet containing 15% fat and 1% cholesterol. The variation in aortic lesions found among inbred strains provided the basis for several additional studies that demonstrated the existence of eight genes affecting atherosclerosis. These genes, named Ath1 to Ath8, are briefly described. The genetic analysis of variation in gallstone formation demonstrated that more than one gene affects this phenotype.

I want Christina to see another doctor who will give her a wake up call, because quite frankly, l think she needs it. I could post medical paper after medical paper which will raise alarm bells about Christina s results, but it would take all day to do. I also wonder how the low HDL has affected Christina s fatty acid profile. It would be interesting to know her EPA/DHA scores also. Once again, much of the medical literature released to doctors and the public on lipids and cholesterol is highly flawed and does not tell the true story behind what is going on. The peer reviewed medical literature now clearly states on numerous occasions that the drug companies and food industry has suppressed info so only dubious literature supporting the low fat low cholesterol diet is in the public domain. There seems to have been lots of lobbying by low fat food industry and drug companies selling cholesterol/lipid lowering drugs as the dominant players pushing their dubious agendas. Itsalso no coincidence ...
A new study from the University of Eastern Finland shows that a relatively high intake of dietary cholesterol, or eating one egg every day, are not associated with an elevated risk of incident coronary heart disease. Furthermore, no association was found among those with the APOE4 phenotype, which affects cholesterol metabolism and is common among the Finnish population.. View original post here ...
Endothelial dysfunction is associated with early development of cardiovascular disease, making longitudinal measurements desirable. We devised a protocol using laser Doppler imaging (LDI) and iontophoresis of acetylcholine (ACh) and sodium nitroprusside (SNP) to assess the skin microcirculation longitudinally in mice every 4 weeks for 24 weeks in two groups of C57BL/6 mice, chow versus high-cholesterol diet(known to induce endothelial dysfunction). LDI measurements were compared with vascular function (isometric tension) measured using wire myography in the tail artery in response to ACh and SNP. Microvascular responses to ACh were significantly reduced in cholesterol-fed versus chow-fed mice from week 4 onwards (P|0.005, ANOVA). Pre-treatment with N(G)-nitro-L-arginine methyl-ester-hydrochloride (L-NAME) showed a significant reduction in ACh response compared with vehicle-treated animals (P|0.05) at baseline and at 12 weeks. In cholesterol-fed mice, ACh responses were 226 ± 21 and 180 ± 21 AU (P=0.03

Participants are admitted to the clinical research center for up to a week per visit. Additional visits at least yearly encouraged. During the week we measure such things as cholesterol absorption, sterol and bile acid synthesis, mevalonate and mevalonate shunt products, isoprenoids, fatty acids, leukotrienes, plasma cholesterol and other sterol levels. Also, the effects of altering dietary cholesterol on plasma 24-S OH-cholesterol, a measure of brain cholesterol turnover, will be evaluated. Studies of body composition/ metabolism/ growth, development, behavior, sleep, feeding, hearing and vision will be carried out to document the phenotype and determine if dietary intervention may be helpful.. The objective of the study is to characterize the metabolic and phenotypic consequences of MKD and study the effects of altering dietary cholesterol in MKD. We hypothesize that some of the phenotypic effects of MKD are due to altered cholesterol metabolism, but that the phenotype is predominantly due to ...

The Oxford English Dictionary defines the word myth as; a popular idea concerning natural or historical phenomena ... that has no foundation in fact. The popular idea in this context is that eating dietary cholesterol, typically from eggs, increases the risk of developing coronary heart disease (CHD), because it increases blood cholesterol. This contentious idea prevails, despite a lack of scientific foundation to support its existence, and almost global re-vamping of dietary recommendations to lift restrictions on the intake of cholesterol-rich foods. In an attempt to dispel the mythical status of dietary cholesterol and CHD, the following chapter will examine the role of dietary cholesterol in relation to what has been well established in terms of the relationships between blood cholesterol, diet and CHD. © 2011 Woodhead Publishing Limited All rights reserved.. ...
The idea that dietary cholesterol significantly increases the total blood cholesterol level was first promoted by American health authorities in the 1960s and was debated for many years.[9][10] The American Heart Association removed dietary restriction of cholesterol in 2013 and the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee removed the restriction in 2015.[9] Dietary cholesterol refers to the cholesterol found in food. It is found only in animal products. It is not necessary to get cholesterol from food as the human body makes more cholesterol than it needs.[11] The mainstream medical consensus is that cholesterol in food only has a small effect on the bad (LDL) cholesterol in your blood.[12][13][14][15][16][17] Saturated and trans fats in food cause a much greater increase in LDL cholesterol and is a risk factor for heart disease.[13][18] The United States Department of Agriculture, Dietary Guidelines For Americans 2015-2020, recommends limiting the intake of saturated fats to less than 10 percent ...

Genetic and dietary factors influence serum cholesterol concentration, but detailed mechanisms of their interactions are not well known. An increase in dietary cholesterol intake raises serum cholesterol concentrations in some but not all subjects. Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infected patients develop dyslipidemia, resulting in a highly atherogenic lipid profile with increased levels of total ...
Introduction. Eggs are a valuable source of protein and contain many substances with biological functions beyond nutrition (Ceylan et al., 2011). However, the major drawback of eggs as a food source for human consumption is its cholesterol content. The correlations between dietary cholesterol content, blood low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and atherosclerosis have been recognised for some years (McNamara, 2000; Simopoulos, 2000). Nevertheless, controlled metabolic studies conducted with humans revealed that the effect of dietary cholesterol on blood LDL cholesterol is relatively insignificant compared to that of saturated and trans-fatty acids (Hu et al., 1999). Alternatively, unsaturated fatty acids (UFAs) are known to reduce high blood LDL cholesterol levels that are caused by the above mentioned factors (McNamara, 2000). This beneficial function of UFAs should be of critical importance in the choice of food sources for people affected by conditions such as high blood LDL levels and ...

Background Hypercholesterolemia-induced endothelial dysfunction (ED) is a major trigger for atherosclerosis. The c-Jun-N-terminal kinases (JNKs) belong to the mitogen-activated protein kinase family. Genetic deletion of JNK2 has been shown to decrease atheroma formation. The present study was designed to investigate whether hypercholesterolemic JNK2 knockout (JNK2−/−) mice are protected from oxidative stress-induced ED.. Methods and Results Male JNK2−/− and corresponding wild-type (WT) mice (8 weeks old) were fed either a high cholesterol diet (HCD, 1.25% total cholesterol) or normal chow (controls) for 14 weeks. WT mice fed a HCD showed a 2-fold increase in JNK phosphorylation as assessed by Western blotting (n=4 - 6, p,0.05 vs. controls). In parallel, endothelium-dependent relaxations to acetylcholine (Ach, 10−9-10−6 mol/L) were impaired in WT mice exposed to a HCD as compared to WT controls (n=4 - 6 in each groups, p,0.05). In contrast, JNK2−/− mice did not exhibit ...
Elevated Cholesterol May Deteriorate Bones Aside from high cholesterol increasing the risk of heart disease, new research suggests that it may also be bad for the bones. The study included 1303 postmenopausal women with higher levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-the bad cholesterol-and showed that they were more likely to show signs of bone thinning, compared with women with normal cholesterol. Although the findings do not prove that high cholesterol is the reason for bone thinning, the results give a possible explanation for studies suggesting that statins protect bones, researchers reported in Obstetrics and Gynecology (November 2003). In the new study, women aged 45 to 65 who had gone through menopause had their bone density measured and cholesterol levels tested. The participants were separated into 3 groups based on LDL levels: normal (129 mg/dL), moderately high (130-150 mg/dL), and high (160 mg/dL and above). Women with high LDL levels were 74% more likely to have osteopenia, a ...

The Liver produces about most of the daily cholesterol needed but not all. The rest comes from diet. Even though your body makes ¾ of its own cholesterol, it needs the ingredients to do it, right? Vegetables (as well as fruits, nuts and whole grains) do not contain cholesterol. For a food item to have dietary cholesterol, it would need to come from an animal or contain a product from an animal. Only the cell membranes of animal tissue contain cholesterol. Cell membranes of plants are composed of fiber, not cholesterol. When you see no cholesterol on a package of fruit, vegetables, grains, or even vegetable oil, dont believe that the manufacturer has done you a favor by removing the cholesterol.

That belief is questionable - most people who have heart attacks have never had high blood cholesterol. Renowned heart surgeon Dr. Michael DeBakey puts the number of coronary artery disease victims with high blood cholesterol at between 30 and 40%. He has been quoted as saying, If you say cholesterol is the cause, how do you explain the other 60% to 70% with heart disease who dont have high cholesterol? Indeed, its beginning to appear that inflammation is the root cause ...
We evaluated the propagation of myocardial injury in a model of coronary artery occlusion and reperfusion in control and hypercholesterolemic rabbits. This was done by examining the differences in the infarct size and in the extent of leukocyte accumulation resulting from coronary artery occlusion (30 min) followed by reperfusion (2 or 48 hr) in rabbits fed 1% cholesterol for 4 days vs. controls not fed cholesterol. There was no significant difference in the infarct size in the 2-hr (45.7 +/- 6.7%, n = 8) vs. 48-hr (48.8 +/- 5.8%, n = 9) models of reperfusion in control rabbits. However, infarct size in the cholesterol-fed rabbits at 2 hr (64.0 +/- 4.1%, n = 6) or 48 hr (72.3 +/- 3.0%, n = 8) of reperfusion significantly exceeded that in the corresponding controls (P , .05). The infarct in cholesterol-fed rabbits at 2 hr of reperfusion was smaller than that at 48 hr of reperfusion, but not significantly. Treatment with S-nitroso-N-acetylpenicillamine, a nitric oxide donor, effectively reduced ...
With all the news and warnings about the dangers of high cholesterol, many people view cholesterol as a “bad†substance that should be eliminated completely from our lives. In truth, cholesterol serves some important functions in the body. In order to understand how cholesterol affects the body, one must first understand what cholesterol is.. Cholesterol is a waxy substance that is attached to the fats in our bloodstream and is present in all of the cells of the body. Cholesterol comes from food that we eat, as well as being manufactured directly by the liver. Cholesterol is an important regulator in the bloodstream, as it helps to regulate the formation of many cells as well as hormones. However, to have too high or too low of a cholesterol count in the blood can be a very dangerous factor, often leading to a heart attack or a stroke. Although cholesterol is prevalent in the blood stream, it cannot dissipate in the blood. The cholesterol maneuvers throughout the body attached to ...
This statement seems so incredible that it takes a long time to clear one´s brainwashed mind to fully understand its importance. Yet the fact that people with high cholesterol live the longest emerges clearly from many scientific papers.1 But let us take a look at heart mortality,the risk of dying from a heart attack if cholesterol is high.. Consider for instance the finding by Dr.Harlan Krumholz of the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at Yale University, who reported that old people with low cholesterol died twice as often from a heart attack as did old people with high cholesterol.2 Supporters of the cholesterol campaign consistently ignore his observation, or consider it as a rare exception, the result of chance among a huge number of studies finding the opposite.. But it is not an exception; there are now a large number of findings that contradict the lipid hypothesis. To be more specific, almost all studies of old people have shown that high cholesterol is not a risk fact for coronary ...

We are all aware that having too much cholesterol isnt good, so we tailor our diets when things begin to go awry with our health. But how much do you actually know about cholesterol and what it does to our bodies?. Cholesterol is an essential building block for the normal metabolism of the body. Cholesterol is a lipid (fat). The liver produces 90% of the bodys cholesterol (usually during sleep). This is primarily a genetic factor; only 10% comes from food. The problem is lipids cannot circulate alone in the blood stream because fat and water do not mix.. They require a transport system.. Water-soluble proteins called lipoproteins transport cholesterol in the blood, and the amount of lipoprotein determines how much cholesterol can be moved. There are three main types of lipoproteins that transport cholesterol:. HDL-high-density lipoprotein. Referred to as good cholesterol, because it removes cholesterol from arterial plaque and transports it back to the liver to be ...
They wanted to know: How many people reported having their cholesterol level screened? How many were using statins -- medications that lower cholesterol?. Cholesterol screening is important, since levels of high cholesterol can increase the risk of having a heart attack. In the U.S., approximately 14 million adults have severe dyslipidemia -- high levels of the unhealthy LDL cholesterol. Of that 14 million, 1 million have familial hyperlipidemia (FH), a genetic condition that causes very high levels of LDL cholesterol.Researchers compared adults with severe dyslipidemia and those with FH to the general population.. Overall, screening for high cholesterol happened more than 80 percent of the time in adults with either FH or severe dyslipidemia -- and high-dose statins were prescribed 30 percent of the time for FH and 37 percent of the time for severe dyslipidemia.But there seemed to be less than ideal follow-through: over the entire time of the study, only 52 percent of adults with FH and 38 ...
A blood lipid test checks levels of cholesterol and other fatty substances. Heres some more information about those numbers.. A lipid is an organic compound composed of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. Lipids include fat, cholesterol and other fat-like substances that do not dissolve in water. Blood lipids are fat cells that are transported to tissues and organs in the body by way of the bloodstream. Your body needs lipids to function, but a buildup of lipids in the bloodstream can clog your arteries, raising the risk for heart attack and stroke.. Blood lipids usually assessed in screenings are: HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and total cholesterol. Blood cholesterol is a waxy substance that is found in cells and circulates in the bloodstream. You also take in dietary cholesterol, found in animal-based foods such as meat and dairy foods.. ...
