This study examined the relationship between cholesterol levels and death rates in 67,413 men and 82,237 women aged 20-95 years over a 15 year period.
The study found:
(a) In men, a low cholesterol level is significantly predictive of a higher risk of death at all ages.
(b) In women, a low cholesterol level is even more markedly significantly predictive of a higher risk of death over the age of 50.
This study reveals that low cholesterol is associated with increased death rates in both men and women.
