Probably the biggest health myth propagated by the pharmaceutical industry. The body needs both kinds of cholesterol. There is no such thing as "bad" or "good" cholesterol. The study that was done to test cholesterol as a heart disease contributor was flawed. They tested RABBITS (A VEGETARIAN) and a FOX (A CARNIVORE). Humans are omnivores. Just read your information in books and on the internet. Statins lower your risk for heart disease, but increases other major factors for deaths of other causes.
Pharmaceutical Industry Mark: Cholesterol is a bad thing, blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.
Doctors in training: Yes, I agree with that. Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah.
