Well, poor animals. Since there is no causal link between any version of cholesterol and CVD and/or premature death they suffered flatulence for nothing.
Too many times the cholesterol myth has been debunked to repeat it here, if so inclined search this site on with the keyword ‘cholesterol’ to get a less biased view.
Obviously it’s a real moneymaker for the pharmaceutical companies to promote statins. Imagine selling an expensive molecule which you have to take the rest of your natural life even at relative young age but can’t be proven either way to do anything but cause serious life threating side effects
In order to be able to continue to sell statins or other cholesterol influencing drugs you need to keep the story going where you have ‘good’ and ‘bad’ cholesterol.
You know what your brain and nervous system is mostly made of? Yep. Very ‘bad’ cholesterol.
Furthermore your smart body limits cholesterol intake from diet to about 300 mg a day. So you can eat 1 pound of pure cholesterol and the only result will be you’ll be visiting the toilet a lot.
a few insights
High cholesterol ‘does not cause heart disease
Same story but different angle
Egg or cholesterol intakes are not associated with the risk of CAD
well, whatever. The only thing for sure is that your lifespan/wellbeing is mostly determined at conception. You can be lucky and get genes that make you capable to live to beyond 100 years are bad luck and die at 5 years old from cancer.
It’s for you to decide if you want to live life constrained in the hope you can beat the odds, or just life live till you inevitable die. Hopefully of a massive coronary in your sleep
The mindless anti-sugar nanny state strikes again.
Short and sweet: This study is all based on self-reported (i.e., unreliable) diet and sleep data. I doubt the authors’ claim that the diet data have been “validated” and they admit that the sleep data are of unknown quality
The phenomenon of lousy data used to produce weak statistical associations is just GIGO junk science.

The whole idea of a ‘climate protection plan’, as well as sounding like some sort of insurance racket, is loaded with suspect assumptions about supposed effects of human activities on the inherent natural variation of Earth’s ocean-atmosphere system. DW.COM reports on what’s seen by some as Germany’s Moroccan climate embarrassment, as some of its own […]

First, in the actual study, the researchers only conclude the following (note highlighted text):
So their actual conclusion is a lot smaller than their headline. But even that is an obvious false claim.
If the little bit of PM2.5 inhaled from outdoor/indoor air damaged the blood vessels of health young men, what would massive amounts of PM2.5 do to sick, old men?
Believe it or not, there are many oxygen users who smoke. Despite that each cigarette delivers PM2.5 at a rate anywhere from 10,000 to 40,000 times greater than breathing typical air, and that sick people are supposedly more vulnerable to the alleged effects of PM2.5 (according to EPA), smoking is not known to cause them any short-term harm.
The “results” of the new study just don’t jibe with the real world. That they don’t is not surprising considering that the lead researcher is C. Arden Pope, one of EPA’s main cheerleaders for the bogus notion that PM2.5 kills.
