Lowering high cholesterol concentration decreases the probability of atherosclerotic-related pathology onset. MUFA and PUFA decrease total plasma and LDL cholesterol but PUFA may increase the susceptibility of LDL to undergo oxidative modifications thus becoming more atherogenetic. Olive oil, the predominant fat source in Mediterranean diet, may combine the advantages of both lowering cholesterol level and decreasing LDL susceptibility to oxidation. We studied the effects of feeding MUFA vs… CONTINUE READING
