Blood fat key role in heart disease7th May 2010
Researchers from Cambridge University have suggested that a type of blood fat different from cholesterol may play a key role in heart disease.
The team looked at the role of triglycerides, which is produced in the liver and derived from foods such as meat and dairy products, and the analysis of 350,000 people from 101 previous studies found those with higher levels of the blood fat were more likely to have heart disease. However, they stress more research is needed to confirm the link.
