Health Correlator: Sudden cholesterol increase? It may be psychological:
Studies have shown that linoleic acid (LA) causes endothelial cell activation and dysfunction which leads to atherosclerosis. LA appears to be the most pro-inflammatory fatty acid.
It has been found that membrane cholesterol can modify and inhibit linoleic acid-mediated endothelial cell dysfunction thereby protecting the vascular endothelium from oxidative stress and polyunsaturated fatty acid-mediated inflammatory responses.
I recently rigged my computer to use it while standing. It is good to know that standing while using the computer may increase my cholesterol and thereby lower the risk of LA induced atherosclerosis.
