Cholesterol, bah. Its insulin.

I mentioned in an earlier post that I thought the emphasis on cholesterol was a scam… and now I have some supporting content.  I was laying in bed Saturday morning listening to the People’s Pharmacy broadcast on Public Radio.  The guest was Gary Taubes and he was discussing how insulin levels were the real culprits… not cholesterol.  That would certainly explain why two people can eat and exercise the same, but have radically different cholesterol measurements.  I’m generalizing here, but that’s the gist of the program.

It was interesting stuff and definitely worth a listen.
