SUNDAY, March 25 (HealthDay News) — There may be a link between low levels of “bad” low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and increased cancer risk, according to new research.
~
In the study, researchers looked at 201 cancer patients and 402 cancer-free patients. They found that cancer patients who never took cholesterol-lowering drugs had low LDL cholesterol levels for an average of about 19 years prior to their cancer diagnosis.
The finding suggests there may be some underlying mechanism that affects both LDL cholesterol levels and cancer risk, the study authors said.
~
Still, other experts cautioned that the finding is preliminary, and lowering your LDL levels is well known to cut the odds for the number one killer, heart disease.
