Israelis link good cholesterol to lower stroke risk

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Elevated levels of HDL have previously been linked to lower rates of death from heart attacks but now a 21-year study has connected it with protection against ischaemic strokes. Men with the lowest levels of HDL, the so-called good cholesterol that transports fats in the blood, were 32% more likely to suffer a fatal stroke than those with the highest levels in the 8,586-patient registry.
