Awesome details about Cholesterol
Good background and info
Total Cholestrol: HDL + LDL + VLDL
Less than 20 percent of total cholesterol comes from diet; the balance is being manufactured by the body. Thus, trying to reduce our consumption of traditional cholesterol-laden foods, including butter, cream, cheese, eggs, and meat, may be an exercise in futility.
In trials in which polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats were eaten in place of carbohydrates, these good fats decreased levels of harmful LDL and increased protective HDL ( Harward link on top).
LDL direct vs LDL
The LDL direct test, unlike what is reported in the chemistry profile, is not a calculation but rather a direct test for the best accurate evaluation and monitoring of this risk factor.
Ideal less than 100mg/dL,
Normal Range is less than 130 mg/dL
130-159 moderate/high risk, over 160 high risk.
1. Less fatty food, esp saturated and trans fats. 2. More fruits and veggies. apples, oranges, pears, strawberries, and melons. 3. Less sugar and carbs. Worse: Soda, french fries, doughnut, chips 4.

Very good list of good and bad foods
nice pie chart
Plaque is a biofilm, usually a pale yellow, that develops naturally on the teeth. At first, the biofilm is soft enough to come off by using finger nail. However, it starts to harden within 48 hours, and in about 10 days the plaque becomes dental calculus (tartar) rock-hard and difficult to remove. Dental plaque can give rise to dental caries (tooth decay).
Tartar or calculus is a hard, yellowish deposit on teeth. When plaque accumulates at excessive levels, it hardens and turns into tartar buildup. The most common sign of tartar is a yellow or brown color to teeth or gums.
To remove plaque before it turns into tartar, brush your teeth for two to four minutes twice a day, and floss.

About impact of ultra pasteurized:
No wonder here there is no malai in milk. :) That is the reason that some milk carton have longer expiry date than others. BTW, most of Europe milk is ultra pasteurized, so should be safe
