Default Why you want to Replace, not Lower, Cholesterol

A great new summary article about cholesterol by Zoe Harcombe.
Check out the graphs that repeatedly show low cholesterol leads to greater mortality, which are in a link to one of her previous articles.
Interesting comments about plant sterols and conception.

Summary

It has become so well known that ‘lowering cholesterol is a good thing’ that we are forgetting to challenge the entire and immense industry that has followed from this (drugs and spreads). Lowering cholesterol is a bad thing and replacing cholesterol with plant sterols is a very bad thing. These bad things are made even worse if the human being tampered with is of child bearing age/has parent-like aspirations. It’s also very bad for any human who wants to live longer. But, what the heck, so long as the cholesterol lowering industry is worth billions – who cares?!

Long article, many links and graphs, better to read on her blog.
