Ethnic differences in serum lipids are not explained by
genetics, central adiposity, lifestyle, or diet, possibly
because dietary carbohydrate has not been considered.

It is known that when calories from carbohydrates
replace energy from fat in a person's diet, both LDL and
HDL cholesterol levels fall while triacylglycerol levels
rise.

Dr. Anwar T. Merchant and co-workers from the
Population Health Research Institute in Hamilton,
Ontario conducted a population-based cross-sectional
study of 619 Canadians of Aboriginal, South Asian,
Chinese, and European origin with no previously
diagnosed medical conditions. They measured
energy-adjusted carbohydrate intake by a validated
food-frequency questionnaire.

They found South Asians consumed the most
carbohydrate, followed by European, Aboriginal, and
Chinese persons.

They also found people consuming the most
carbohydrate having an average level of 1.08 mmol/L,
compared to 1.21 mmol/L for those who ate the fewest
carbohydrates. EachEach additional 100 gram per day
of carbohydrates was tied to a 0.15 mmol/L drop in HDL
cholesterol. Triacylglycerol levels also rose in tandem
with carbohydrate intake.

Fewer intakes of sugar-containing soft drinks, juices,
and snacks were associated with higher HDL. Reducing
the frequency of intake of sugar-containing soft drinks,
juices, and snacks may be beneficial for boosting higher
HDL levels.
