Older people with higher cholesterol live longer, says Japan study

| Updated: September 27, 2021 12:52

What if a study tells you that high cholesterol is actually a good thing and is in fact associated with longer life? It is more than possible.

People die from causes ranging from heart diseases to cancer, or infection, or unnatural deaths. However, should it be a matter of concern? Should the cause of death matter once you’re already dead?

The answer would be a Yes and No. Once you die, you die no matter what. While on the other hand, dying in your sleep in old age is preferable to a long, lingering illness. Doctors have focused on how total cholesterol proves to be a risk marker for heart diseases and how it might affect other causes of death.

People with higher cholesterol live longer

A population study in Japan shows that people of all ages with higher cholesterol live longer.

While an inverse trend is found between all-cause mortality and total cholesterol levels, the mortality rate is highest in the lowest cholesterol group without exception.

For people residing outside Japan, the authors believe that the presence of people with familial hypercholesterolemia that causes a very high cholesterol level and which raises the risk of death in the highest cholesterol categories accounts for higher death rates in those categories.
