No, he's actually exercised extraordinary judgement up until now. He's worked hard since he was 14, he graduated college with a degree in electronic engineering, and he has a great job working in his degree field. Then this. I'm at a loss to explain it. I'm trying to convince him to join the forum, although I did warn him about one of the moderators.


Was that warning in the first person or the third person?

The Honolulu Heart Program study, with 8,000 participants, published in 2001:
“Long-term persistence of low cholesterol concentration actually increases the risk of death. Thus, the earlier the patients start to have lower cholesterol concentrations, the greater the risk of death.”

And finally, the huge Japanese Lipid Intervention Trial with over 47,000 participants:
“The highest death rate observed was among those with lowest cholesterol (under 160mg/dl); lowest death rate observed was with those whose cholesterol was between 200-259mg/dl”

In other words, those with the lowest cholesterol had the highest death rate, and those with cholesterol levels that would today be called “dangerous” had the lowest death rate.
So you say my breakfast of lard deep-fried in butter is what will save me from an early death?

Hmmmmm. Or, Yummmmmm.
But really, I though the risk of death was pretty much absolute, and the rate of death is 100 %.

Who would've thunk a little added cholesterol could change all that

The mortality rate of those who exercise regularly and eat only healthy foods is exactly the same as that of bacon cheeseburger eating couch potatoes.

Ohh it was perfectly healthy! I had choline that comes from eggs, protein, and no unhealthy carbs. It was quite nice. Also, coffee is great for you. Plenty of vitamin C. That's caffeine for those not in the know.
