Well, it seems these years of warnings that the medical and pharmaceutical industries used to boogieman us over high levels of cholesterol - and busily marketed expensive drugs to counteract them - were something of a waste. Now it can be told that such levels are markers of underlying imbalances which treating high cholesterol hasn't addressed at all, newer studies find.
Dr. Lipman's article How Bad Is Cholesterol? reveals a broader picture and makes a lot of sense to me so I hope you'll check it out either before or after you bite into that cream-filled doughnut because you might find yourself feeling a little less guilty, if a smidge weightier!
Delicious Banana Bread might be the wiser choice, yes?
