Need another reason to ensure lifelong cardiovascular health and reduced “bad” or low-density blood cholesterol levels? A new study by Kyushu University has found that high cholesterol levels at mid-life are a strong predictor of the brain plaques and reduced cognitive functioning associated with Alzheimer’s disease later in life. Although the findings are preliminary and additional data is expected over the course of this ongoing longitudinal study, they are significant already and suggest perhaps a 35 percent increase in Alzheimer’s risk via unnaturally elevated blood cholesterol levels.
