Research at the University of California, Davis, Alzheimer’s Disease Center has established an association between high levels of bad cholesterol (LDL), low levels of good cholesterol (HDL) and Alzheimer's disease. Per the article:

 

High levels of “good” HDL cholesterol and low levels of the “bad” LDL kind are not just helpful for your heart, they’re better for your brain as well, a new study finds. In fact, the wrong levels of the two types of cholesterol are associated with more of the protein deposits in the brain associated with the onset of Alzheimer’s disease...It’s published Monday in the journal JAMA Neurology.

Since I have a huge family incidence of Alzheimer's, but excellent HDL and LDL levels, this is very good news for me...
