My Take On...



The controversy continues about lipids as the primary culprit in blood vessel damage (atherosclerosis or atherosclerotic vascular disease). The overuse of statin drugs (over 150 million scripts per year!) has unmasked their risks and costs. Good HDL continues to be the best predictor of cardiovascular health.


What to do:  Diet and exercise are still the best approach to cholesterol.
