HDL Cholesterol: Too Much of a Good Thing?


An ample supply of HDL cholesterol in blood serum has long been linked to protection against coronary heart disease and stroke, so what could be bad?

A series of studies, large and small, in this country (USA) and abroad shows that the relationship of HDL levels to heart disease and overall mortality forms a U-shaped curve: too little and too much of this blood lipid are, on average, associated with an elevated risk of heart disease, cancer and premature death.

Although cardiologists can still only guess at why very high HDL levels may incur a health risk, the findings reinforce the importance of focusing less on the “good” cholesterol and even more on the “bad” — the level of LDL, or low-density lipoprotein, cholesterol that is still too high in as many as one-third of adults in this country.

These findings, among others, are prompting doctors to rethink their approach to patients who may have an elevated risk of developing a heart attack, stroke or other life-threatening cardio... Show more...

“Tons of sugar and limited nutrients” – why juice is not healthy


Obesity affects 40 percent of adults and 19 percent of children in the United States and accounts for more than $168 billion in health care spending each year. Sugary beverages are thought to be one of the major drivers of the obesity epidemic. These drinks (think soda and sports drinks) are the largest single source of added sugars for Americans and contribute, on average, 145 added calories a day to our diets. For these reasons, reducing sugary beverage consumption has been a significant focus of public health intervention. Most efforts have focused on sodas.

More and more health organizations have realized that sugar and soda are major culprits in the development of obesity and type 2 diabetes. But for some reason fruit juice has escaped blame (maybe the marketing around fruit being so healthy?), in spite of its great sugar content and lack of nutrients.

It’s time to stop viewing fruit juice as healthy. As the author of this NYT article writes: “We doubt you... Show more...
