People who have even slightly elevated cholesterol when they are middle-aged have a higher risk of dementia later on, researchers reported on Tuesday. The study of nearly 10,000 people found that those with high cholesterol in their 40s — a reading of 240 or higher — had a 66 percent higher risk of Alzheimer’s disease 40 years later. People whose cholesterol was lower — 200 to 239 — had a 52 percent higher risk in old age than people with lower cholesterol levels, the team at the University of Kuopio in Finland and Kaiser Permanente’s Division of Research reported. – From Reuters
