According to a study titled 'India Fit Report 2019', diabetes has increased by 40 per cent from 2017 to 2018, among people below 45 years, and cholesterol has witnessed an overall increase of 40 per cent in the same period.
The vast majority of foods that are high in cholesterol, like steak or butter, are also high in saturated fats. Notable exceptions to this rule are egg yolks and shellfish, such as shrimp, lobster and crab.
In adolescents, both quantity and quality of sleep had significant effects on aspects of cardiovascular health such as blood pressure, cholesterol levels and fat deposition. Longer sleep duration were associated with reduced cardiometabolic risk.
