Journal: Journal of Evaluation Clinical Practice

 Publication Date: 02/2012

Summary: Our study provides an updated epidemiological indication of possible errors in the CVD risk algorithms of many clinical guidelines. If our findings are generalizable, clinical and public health recommendations regarding the ‘dangers’ of cholesterol should be revised. This is especially true for women, for whom moderately elevated cholesterol (by current standards) may prove to be not only harmless but even beneficial.

Journal: The Journal of Nutrition

Publication Date: 10/2011

 Summary: The study investigated the effects on fatty liver development of feeding rats a control diet, a high-fat diet or a high-fat diet supplemented with creatine. Liver fat increased in the rats fed a high-fat diet over 3 weeks. This effect was prevented by supplementing the high-fat diet with creatine. 

Better memory functioning associated with higher total and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels in very elderly subjects without the apolipoprotein e4 allele

Journal: American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry

Publication Date: 09/2008

Summary: In oldest old nondemented noncarriers of the APOE4 allele, high cholesterol is associated with better memory function. Further examination of the role of APOE genotype on the association between cholesterol and cognitive performance, especially in the oldest old is warranted.

The polyp prevention trial continued follow-up study: no effect of a low-fat, high-fiber, high-fruit, and -vegetable diet on adenoma recurrence eight years after randomization

Journal: Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention

 Publication Date: 09/2007

 Summary: This study failed to show any effect of a low-fat, high-fiber, high-fruit and -vegetable eating pattern on adenoma recurrence even with 8 years of follow-up.

The association between lipid levels and the risks of incident myocardial infarction, stroke, and total mortality: The Cardiovascular Health Study.

Journal: Journal of the American Geriatric Society

 Publication Date: 10/2004

Summary: In this population-based study of older adults, most lipid measures were weakly associated with cardiovascular events. The association between low HDL-C and increased MI risk was nonetheless strong and consistent.
