Jun 06, 2020 13:21 IST

Results of a new study has found that the level of bad cholesterol in the blood of Indians has not changed in the last four decades. Published in the journal Nature, the global report revealed that bad cholesterol levels are rising among Asians but they have been on a sharp decline in Western nations. However, the overall level still remains high in high-income Western nations like North America and North-Western Europe in comparison to Asian countries. For the research, data from 102.6 million individuals was examined by hundreds of researchers across the world over a period of 39 years. Indian men ranked 128th in 2018, the same as their rank in 1980, Indian women did show a marginal change moving from 139 to 140 on a global scale.
