A study in mice conducted by researchers at the University of Edinburgh found a direct association between immune function and cholesterol levels.
“We discovered that a key immune hormone stimulated infection can lower cholesterol and thus depriving viral infections support they need to grow,” said Peter Ghazal, whose study was published in the journal Public Library of Science (Plops) Biology.
“Currently there are drugs to lower cholesterol levels, but the next step would be to see whether these drugs might also work to help strengthen our immune systems,” he added.
Doctors commonly prescribe stations such as Lipitor, Pfizer, Crestar, AstraZeneca and a generic called simvastatin to reduce LDL “bad” cholesterol, a risk factor for heart disease. These drugs are considered the most successful in preventing heart attacks and strokes.
Ghazal said there are still many years of research to which these results can be translated into treatments for humans, but in the future could be developed stating drugs such anti-infective purposes.
Today the fight viral infections with drugs that target the mechanism that allows the virus to multiply. Antibiotics are used to fight bacterial infections, but these manage to mutate and develop new strains that are resistant to drugs, causing a constant need for new and more powerful drugs.
Ghazal said his research team hopes to use his studies to figure out new ways to fight infections that may mimic such immune signals sent to reduce the production of cholesterol.
These treatments help to overcome the problem of drug resistance, he said, and would seek to strengthen the way the body responds to infection, rather than focusing on attacking the bacteria.
Have you heard that it is necessary to increase the fiber content in foods? This is one response to that. Not only is better in terms of fiber content, but also in terms of protein content as well.

Instead of sticking to just three meals a day, “doing pastoral.” This means you can perfectly eat 5 or 6 small meals instead of three king sized meals. It’s a great way to have less food. There are many things you have to avoid from your diet, but may have an unyielding desire not to comply with its non-final consumption. Do not avoid them completely.
You can make a small difference with your favorite foods and enjoy them from time to time. But be careful to only feel a tingling in your mouth and do not jump headlong over them. Instead they completely dominate it, share this food with others. Watch your fat intake. Each gram of fat contains 9 calories so by reading the total calories in a food and know how much fat can estimate the percentage of it in no way should be greater than 30% of the food. Remember that too much salt is one of the causes of obesity. Try to cut trough even really salt. Try to reduce your salt intake by half than it was last year.
Change from table butter cholesterol free butter. If you have a choice, why not go for it, that is, the way it is healthier for you and tastes the same way.

Baking requires less oil or fat.
