It turns out that the level of cholesterol in the blood is dependent on weather conditions, said the staff of the Centre for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease Tsikkaron.
The study was conducted with the participation of 2.8 million people, in the course of the experiment, it was found that in the winter season cholesterol indicators are at the highest point. Experts have found that several explanations.
The fact that the person is less winter locomotor activity and eating, in contrast, more. In the food consumed more fat and not very useful food.
Secondly, reducing the influence of the winter sunlight leads to lower levels of vitamin D in the body. According to experts, this vitamin affects the growth of "bad cholesterol."
High cholesterol leads to the risk of cardiovascular disease. At the same time we should not forget that the level of cholesterol depends on the use of products with its high content.
