According to a recent study by a group of Chinese researchers, a diet high in fat reduces the risk of dementia.
A study published in the journal Frontiers Medical found that people with low cholesterol in the body develop dementia more often than people with high cholesterol associated with a diet rich in saturated fats.
Well-known cardiologist Dr. Oshim Malhotra emphasized that high cholesterol in the elderly is a preventive factor for heart disease and dementia. “You need to stop focusing on lowering cholesterol, encouraging a diet without processed foods. It's time to stop the fear of cholesterol and make it our friend. ”
Sir Richard Thompson, former president of the Royal College of Physicians, said: "These results are interesting and should be monitored and further investigated to determine the link between cholesterol and mental health."
A previous study at Cambridge University earlier this year found different results suggesting that cholesterol acts as a catalyst in the formation of toxic amyloid beta groups, which plays a key role in the development of Alzheimer's disease, reports Daily Express.
