we need cholesterol. our bodies make it and we would die without it. fatty foods do not translate to elevated blood lipids.
Ancel Keys Was Wrong about Heart Disease and Cholesterol | Health Impact News
after 2 years of no grains, but not really primal, i had a cholesterol test last year, as part of an overall work-up. i eat plenty of fatty foods, red meat and dairy. with a non-fasted test, my overall number was 210, but my trigs were 60 and my ratio well below any kind of warning bell numbers.
that being said, i don't believe the hype that high cholesterol is a problem and more evidence is showing that higher numbers are safer for women as we age.
unless i had a genetic disorder that caused issues, i would NEVER take drugs for my cholesterol.
i'd be a vegetarian if bacon grew on trees.
