    Default Study: Those With Higher LDL Cholesterol Levels Live Longest

    Question: If a tree falls in the forest, and there’s nobody around to hear, does it make a sound?
    This is a philosophical question that has been around for some time. I shall change it slightly to the following: “If a journal publishes a study, and it doesn’t make a noise, can it make a difference?”

    A couple of weeks ago the Lancet published a ridiculous study with the snappy title:
    ‘Application of non-HDL cholesterol for population-based cardiovascular risk stratification: results from the Multinational Cardiovascular Risk Consortium

    Very interesting study. So, if people with high LDL cholesterol live longer after a heart attack, then it seems high LDL can't be all bad. Lol. There's so much misunderstanding about LDL cholesterol. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the different types. Apparently, LDL - pattern A are large particles and LDL - pattern B consists of "small particles. The smaller more dense particles of pattern B allegedly places one at greater risk for cardiovascular problems. But, I'd bet the farm that researchers don't fully understand the significance between the "fluffy, large" particles of LDL(a) versus the "small, more dense" particles of LDL(b). Just hold on; there's another study on the way that will reverse everything we know about the importance of particle size.
