of US adults have been dropping since the late 1980s – and not just because of the increased popularity of lipid-lowering drugsaccording to a US study Researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said cholesterolwhich is closely tied to heart disease riskmay be looking better because of improvements in dietincluding the substitution of vegetable oils for less-healthy trans fats They foundin a report published in the Journal of the American Medical Associationthat average total cholesterol dropped from 206 milligrams per deciliter in 1988-1994 to 196 in 2007-2010with a similar decrease in bad LDL cholesterol It’s important and significantthe reduction that we see herebut it’s not unbelievablesaid Goodarz Danaeifrom the Harvard School of Public Healthwho was not involved in the study Researchers consulted nationally representative health surveys that took blood samples from adults and interviewed them on their medication use Each survey included between 9000

weren’t on the medicationthe researchers said The most recent research suggests about one-quarter of adults age 45 and older in the US are on a statin Danaei said the findings support past research also showing average cholesterol is decreasing in the United Stateswith a corresponding drop in heart disease But the question is whether cholesterol levels will continue to fallgiving rising obesity rates Carroll told Reuters Health that based on their studyresearchers can only speculate about the drop One theory is that Americans are eating fewer trans fats as manufacturers cut it out of baked goodsfried food and butter-like spreads (The decrease) was probably due to the reductions in smoking (and) the reductions in trans fat in our dietparticularly in processed foodthat have occurred over the same time periodsaid Donna Arnettpresident of the American Heart Associationwho wasn’t involved in the study Carroll said that besides avoiding trans fats and taking any prescribed
