High cholesterol levels is a symptom, not the underlying disease.

But by all means, keep pretending you know what you're doing and keep poisoning us all with statins.

Oznog: Twilight Farkle: Hmm, have they merely found a catchy word for "everything that is neither LDL-C nor HDL-C," which technically isn't the same as very-low-density-lipoprotein (VLDL). There's a fair bit of research that suggests non-HDL-C and ApoB have predictive value for CV risk, and it appears this study is adding to that body of research and helping to inform the debate as to which numbers have the greatest predictive value.

Disclaimer: I'm hardly a lipidologist, I picked those other studies pretty much at random, so I may be underestimating this study's significance, and I'm already one beer into the night, so here's the paper, have at it, pre-med and cardio nerds: Remnant Cholesterol as a Causal Risk Factor for Ischemic Heart Disease

Finally someone to ask... is eating eggs bad for you, or good??

Well, when the different kinds of cholesterol fight it out in the abandoned spaghetti western graveyard that is my heart, I'll let you know how it goes.


I have the feeling that it will involve an orchestra and two more movies.

I am going to let everyone in on a secret. Eat well and exercise everyday.

I should write a book.

I have cholesterol. Dietary. Familial. Any other kind you care to name. Eggs were good, then they were bad, now they are good again (maybe) or bad. Gonna live or die. Meh - have one hell of a run at it, still know how to laugh, fark, care.

There is also 'fugly' cholesterol, which is literally comprised of fudge and chicken skins.
