I love Gary Taubes … he’s awesome. 

I’m prepping for my Saturday radio program and ran across his op ed in the NYTimes (here’s the link), which reviews how “the cholesterol hypothesis” happened.

lower heart attack risk) even work? 

This article makes the point that the early research confused a “false positive” correlation with a true causal link. 

Yes, statins decreased heart attack risk, but not because it lowered cholesterol. Check this out and see what you think.
