High Cholesterol Message Board

High Cholesterol Board Index

[QUOTE=ACE28;4193395]The pioneers of the CT-SCAN, which measures Artery calcification, beleive that for Optimal heart health, the theory is "The Rule of 60". 60/60/60 for Cholesterol levels.

That is: 60 - HDL, 60 - LDL, 60 - Triglycerides[/QUOTE]

Note that these levels give a total of 135 mg/dl (60 + 60 + 60/5) and a total / HDL ratio of 2.25.

People in rural China reportedly have total cholesterol average around that range. Given their high level of physical exercise (manual labor doing farming and other work) and low levels of body fat, it would not be surprising if their HDL / LDL / VLDL breakdown were similar to the above listed ideal (although there does not seem to be publicly available information on this). Their heart disease rates are very low.

[QUOTE=ACE28;4193395]The miracle supplements (according to researchers) are Vitamin D and Niacin. Also diet and exercise.[/QUOTE]

Hmmm, miracle supplements come and go, but diet and exercise are always available (and if you exercise outside like farmers in rural China, vitamin D is less likely to be an issue).
