  • Large molecules of cholesterol in the blood may be a harbinger of longevity, according to a team of researchers who today report they''ve found at least one secret explaining why some people live to be 100.
  • "When we look at their lipoprotein size, we see that it is very large," said Dr. Nir Barzilai, director of the institute for aging research at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx.
  • The Einstein team studied both forms of cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein - HDL - dubbed the good form; and low-density lipoprotein, LDL, the bad.
  • Studying 213 long-lived people of Ashkenazi Jewish heritage and their children, Barzilai said those with large molecules were less likely to develop strokes, heart attacks, diabetes and other scourges of modern living.
