High Cholesterol may Lead to Osteoarthritis
While the title of this article may be a little simplistic, the researchers who published in the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, did find that increasing the intake of cholesterol (in rats) created dysfunctional mitochondria and oxidative stress. This, in turn, caused increases in the markers for osteoarthritis and a breakdown of the cartilage. The good news is that with appropriate antioxidants they were also able to reduce the progression of osteoarthritis.
