LDL - "the bad cholesterol"
These are low density lipoproteins. Lead to high blood cholesterol levels by its transport from the liver to the tissues - thus accelerating the development of atherosclerosis. Elevated levels of LDL cholesterol increases the risk of heart disease because this form of cholesterol deposited on artery walls. To reduce the level of this fraction should limit their intake of saturated fats and trans isomers (products of animal origin such as meat, butter, milk fat and margarine hardened, cakes, French fries, chips), increase consumption of foods containing soluble fiber, to maintain normal weight. The only source of "the bad cholesterol" in the diet are animal products and vegetable products (even those with high fat content) do not contain it. Too much "bad cholesterol" in the diet may increase the level of this component in serum, although some people have higher "burn" cholesterol from foods of animal origin. For the remaining one of the conservation measures is to reduce daily cholesterol intake to 300 mg.
