Preventive Medicine

In brief: ↓↓ Carb+Mod Protein

Cholesterol: specific fat molecule made by every animal cell on planet, part of cell membranes, enables cell flexibility ; animals to move (plants don't).
Cholesterol never correct for arterial disease; promoted because correlates with LDL particle concentration (but only when extremely hi) + ?$ to measure. But correlation falls apart ; reverses at ?ed concentrations+poor individual reliability.

Low fat diet, long promoted by Ancel Keys & most mainstream medicine, was never supported by good science. We are water based creatures, starting from a single cell & growing to trillions, as adults. All cells use fat molecules to both control & organize water (membranes) & as a way to store & transport energy. Sugar/carb intake ↑es liver conversion to triglyceride fats, obesity & LDL particles.
