New Delhi: Reacting to a study report that `good cholesterol` - known to check harmful cholesterol from blood - does not lower risk of heart diseases, international health experts Thursday said here that it is "too early" to draw conclusions on its negative effects."It is a good study that was badly interpreted. The positive spinoff from the study is that it provided the prod for moving away from over-focusing on the contribution of cholesterol," said Philip Barter, director of heart research institute in Sydney, reacting to British medical journal Lancet`s study on good cholesterol.Known to be vital in the functioning of cardio-vascular system, high density lipoproteins (HDL or good cholesterol) works by sweeping the bad form of the fatty substance called low density lipoproteins (LDL or bad cholesterol) out of the blood-carrying arteries to reduce clogs.
