[QUOTE=StJoes]I know I'm not supposed to believe everything I read and hear and see, etc etc etc, but this article on the correlation between high cholesterol and longevity compelled me to share this with you.

There's an article "The benefits of high cholesterol." It's written by an Uffe Ravnskov, MD, PHD.

Any thoughts or comments would be helpful, especially considering I am neither a qualified GP nor even an authority on the subject of cholesterol.

Thank you.[/QUOTE]

I found this tidbit on his book:

....even Dr. Uffe Ravnskov in "The Cholesterol Myths"
207) acknowledges the cardiological benefits of statins. The difference
between Dr. Ravnskov and the rest of main stream doctors is the cause
these benefits. Main stream medicine attributes these benefits to the
cholesterol lowering properties of the statins, Dr. Ravnskov believes
benefits are "in spite of" the lowering of the cholesterol (bad side
effect of the statins).

>>>Of course I firmly disagree with the notion that high cholesterol is beneficial..let alone benign :rolleyes:
