Study title and authors:
Relationship between serum non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and incidence of cardiovascular disease.
This paper can be accessed at: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21176640
The objective of the study was to evaluate the relationship between non high density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-C), very low density lipoprotein cholesterol (VLDL-C) and heart disease and stroke in 29,937 Chinese aged 35-64 years.
The study found that non-HDL-C is associated with increased risk of suffering heart disease and stroke and that VLDL-C plays a critical role in the development.
Non- HDL-C is comprised of low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and VLDL-C. High levels of both LDL-C and VLDL-C are caused by high carbohydrate diets. See here and here.
