I'm sure that all Americans reading this will doubt the article's truthfulness... but it's understandable given that in a recent survey of American'ts, 47% of respondents believed that man was created by a god within the last 10000yrs...

Stupid...

Cholesterol on the other hand is GOOD

it has a purpose but like anything too much is an issue. I mean free radicals are good if quenched after they kill microorganisms and induce apoptosis.

Everything has a purpose, cholesterol is the jump-off for steriodogenesis.

That's the issue.

Well intake of cholesterol isn't really an issue what is the issue is centripedal versus central transport. What one wants is cholesterol being transported back on HDL to the liver to be destroyed. Foster this and you avoid the negative consequences. Total cholesterol isn't an issue, it's HDL over total cholesterol. Once LDL rises, VLDL etc you generally have deposition in the arteries.

So i think the best solution is simply increase HDL and mitigate most of the negative aspects while still reaping the rewards.

what are your thoughts?

any age, especially if there is a family history. There is a condition called familial hypercholestemia of which the recessive version is somewhat common. I would start at age 25 getting checked, full blood panels .

seems they classify it quite differently here, Normally issues with HMG-coa reductase is considered a familial cholesterol issue which is responsive to statins. My woman has it.
