Good Cholesterol Maybe Not So Good

A recent study making use of far-reaching and intensive data on genetics casts doubt on the belief that “good” cholesterol, or HDL, has any impact on heart health.

Findings published in The Lancet recently revealed that raising the HDL or good cholesterol in the blood may not be effective at reducing the risk of heart disease.

The study, which used genetic data gathered over many years, looked at risk factors for people who either had a genetic predisposition to having higher HDL levels or lower ones.

What they found was that in those people who were genetically “blessed,” their risk of developing heart disease was no higher than their low-HDL counterparts.
