One of the main triggers of Alzheimer’s disease? In case you missed my previous video, here it is: Oxidized Cholesterol as a Cause of Alzheimer’s Disease (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/Oxidized-Cholesterol-as-a-Cause-of-Alzheimers-Disease).
This reminds me of my video Reducing Cancer Risk in Meat-Eaters(https://nutritionfacts.org/video/reducing-cancer-risk-in-meateaters/), about lowering exposure to cooked meat carcinogens called heterocyclic amines.
Other than cholesterol oxidation, are microwaves a good idea? See my two videos: Are Microwaves Safe? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/Are-Microwaves-Safe) and The Effects of Radiation Leaking from Microwave Ovens (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/The-Effects-of-Radiation-Leaking-from-Microwave-Ovens).
Is unoxidized cholesterol a problem too? See, for example, Cholesterol Crystals May Tear Through Our Artery Lining (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/cholesterol-crystals-may-tear-though-our-artery-lining/).

Is it just the small dense cholesterol particles? I got a video on that too! Does Cholesterol Size Matter? (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/Does-Cholesterol-Size-Matter).
