LDL – “The Bad”

(10 March, 2011)

LDL – low density lipoprotein – is also a container that leads cholesterol. This time from the liver to various cells in the body.

But, as I’ve mentioned, cells need cholesterol. So why is the LDL considered “bad”? Apparently there are several “types” of LDL: small more dense ones, large more inflated ones, and of course all kinds of sizes in between. The inflated usually don’t cause problems. It’s the small, dense ones that can cause problems. Mostly because they are the ones entering damaged artery walls where they begin to harden and eventually clog the arteries. (However the large inflated LDL apparently doesn’t do any damage at all.)

What makes the LDL to shrink? Carbohydrate rich foods …
