The baseline plasma OxLDL-EO6 correlated with the plasma Lp(a) concentration (r=0.94, P<0.001) (Figure I, available online at http://atvb.ahajournals.org). There were also strong correlations between the plasma OxLDL-EO6 and Lp(a) on the low-fat, low-vegetable diet (r=0.97, P<0.001) and on the low-fat, high-vegetable diet (r=0.96, P<0.001). The relative changes of plasma OxLDL-EO6 and plasma Lp(a) correlated as well (r=0.65, P<0.001; the change from the baseline to the low-fat, low-vegetable diet) (r=0.38; P<0.05; the change from the baseline to the low-fat, high-vegetable diet). The changes of plasma OxLDL-EO6 and plasma Lp(a) did not correlate with the changes of plasma antioxidants.
because we expressed the oxidized phospholipids detected per apoB-100 particle, this measurement is independent of LDL values. However, because the absolute LDL levels were only minimally affected in response to the low-fat diets (Figure 2), the absolute number of apoB-100 particles did not change; thus, there was a net increase in the total content of oxidized phospholipid associated with apoB
I wonder how long it will take before the newspapers/websites start pointing fingers at the authorities who misled an unfortunate 30% or so of the population into believing that saturated fat was harmless for all but a very few. (And no, the demonization of well-meaning people is not helpful. But many people spreading today's new truth will be blamed.)
People who don't want to believe it will find plenty of comfort, as I did, from paleo web sites swearing up and down that saturated fat is wonderful and LDL doesn't really matter because xyz.
