HIGH-DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL AND CANCER INCIDENCE: DATA FROM THE FRAMINGHAM HEART STUDY
This study investigated the association of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels with the incidence of cancer. The study included 201 cases of cancer and 402 matched controls. Their HDL cholesterol levels were measured at four time points throughout an average of 18.7 years prior to diagnosis of cancer.
The study found that HDL cholesterol levels were lower in cancer subjects than matched controls at each point of assessment throughout the 18.7 years prior to diagnosis.
The best way to raise your HDL cholesterol levels is to consume a diet rich in saturated fat, see here.
