Past research has shown that heart attacks and heart-related deaths rise during the winter months and researchers at Johns Hopkins Ciccarone Center for the Prevention of Heart Disease recently found that increased cholesterol levels may be to blame.
A team of volunteers ate half a kilo of strawberries a day for a month to see whether it altered their blood parameters in any way. At the end of this unusual treatment, their levels of bad cholesterol and triglycerides reduced significantly.
Johns Hopkins researchers have developed a more accurate way to calculate low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, the so-called "bad" form of blood fat that can lead to hardening of the arteries and increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.
The formula currently used to calculate an individual’s “bad” cholesterol levels is often inaccurate, sometimes underestimating low-density lipoprotein (LDL) levels in those most at risk, researchers from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine have discovered.
People with borderline high cholesterol could be at greater risk of having a heart attack during the winter months, according to a new study which reveals that both HDL and LDL levels fluctuate from season to season.
