There are two main types of cholesterol: high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL). (Lipoproteins are made of fat and protein, and serve as vehicles for your cholesterol to travel through the blood.) Cardiologists are often asked about low-density lipoprotein (LDL) versus high-density lipoprotein (HDL). The difference is important to understand. What does HDL cholesterol do?

It is considered the “good” cholesterol...

Depression is a chronic condition with an estimated lifetime prevalence of 14.6% and 11.1% in high- and lower-and-middle-income countries, respectively. (Bromet et al., 2011; Kessler and Bromet, 2013). Moreover, it is estimated that depression is one of the leading sources of disability worldwide (2015; Ferrari et al., 2013), being associated with reduced quality of life and medical morbidity (Ferrari et al., 2013; Kessler and Bromet, 2013; Rackley and Bostwick, 2012). Increasing evidence also shows that depression might confer a higher risk for several non-communicable diseases (e.g., diabetes (Rotella and Mannucci, 2013a...
