    Also, that number 3 is dubious at best.

    They almost have it right... at least they say cholesterol is vitally important.

    word. i recently went to my doc he was freaked at my chol levels, i told him i was using coconut oil he shook his head and said sat fats cause clogging of the arteries, of course he suggested corn oil and nut oil, i "tried" to tell him about PUFA and the chemical breakdowns during cooking process, it was like talking to a chimp, unfortunately i just nodded my head and said ok to everything. its like they dont care about the other numbers of HDL and trig. oh well CW at its best i suppose

    Some day, I may just cuss out a doc that tries to tell me stuff like that.
    It may go like this:
    "You need statins."
    "Fsck you." jfreaksho exits stage left.

    There might be a bit in there about how I am looking and feeling better than I ever have in my life, or how statins don't have any positive effects unless you've already had a heart attack, but I'm not entirely sure that's necessary.

    They need to hire an editor:

    Cholesterol is a type of lipid produced by the liver and many other cells within the body and is used to build cell membranes and make steroid hormones, so it's vital to our health. We need it to survive - but what's important is steering away from excess dietary carbohydrate being converted to palmitic acid and excess dietary PUFAs. The excess carbohydrates make the LDL particle small and dense and PUFAs in the phospholipid membrane of LDL particles makes them prone to oxidative damage. Both factors are atherogenic.

    I never knew that saturated fat could be turned into cholesterol, yet alone being turned into 'excess cholesterol'. Could someone tell me the chemical formula of 'excess cholesterol'?
