there have been numerous studies showing all sorts of correlations to all sorts of things. do you have studies showing causation?

Since I only got this large particle number after starting to drink coconut milk and cream like water, it's a reasonable experiment to play around with the amounts I eat and see how that affects the result.
which means what? how long was the study? what were the subjects consuming for "cholesterol"? canola oil or salmon? again, a short study proves nothing.
Your statement that genes have nothing to do with heart disease is just wrong. If you feed large amounts of cholesterol or saturated fat to a large population, about 75% of those won't get significantly worse blood test results for LDL or particle counts. But 25% of the population are what they call "high responders" and they do get significantly worse results.
you're correct. that's' genetic. there is still no proof it causes cvd. it often runs hand-in-hand with high blood pressure which DOES cause heart attacks.
Some of these people have "familial hypercholesterolimia".
have you been diagnosed with "familial hypercholesterolemia"? if not, genetics don't matter. the medical community blames all sorts of stuff on genetics so people feel hopeless. type 2 diabetes and obesity can both be controlled with proper diet and exercise. for free. no damn meds.
At very least, I appear to be in the responder group. For people in the responder group, I think it is very very irresponsible to tell them that genetics don't matter.
please stop stressing.
as far as the fat, i never said any such thing.
I think you are going way beyond Paleo - and approaching some kind of religion - when you start to say things like "genes don't matter and eat as much fat as you feel like eating
." I don't think you have to believe anything like that to be Paleo.
not to bicker, but i follow primal.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
