For­get Choles­terol

“Don’t worry, take a statin.”

That’s the heart health advice of­fered by smil­ing faces on TV, as well as much of the med­i­cal es­tab­lish­ment. Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cally push­ing LDL choles­terol lev­els to near-zero is the com­monly ac­cepted cure-all for heart dis­ease. How­ever, nearly half of all car­diac events hap­pen to peo­ple with low choles­terol. Maybe there is an­other mech­a­nism in play— cur­rent re­search says there is.
