LCHF and healthy eating

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atherosclerosis

The important point it makes is that the cause of atherosclerosis, despite many decades of research, is unknown.  But there are many risk factors for atherosclerosis, including high blood cholesterol , hypertension, diabetes, cigarette smoking, etc


That’s not what it says. You just misrepresented your own source. Again.

From the Wikipedia article, 2nd paragraph:

The exact cause is not known.  Risk factors include abnormal cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, obesity, family history, and an unhealthy diet.

Right. But that’s not what you said.

High cholesterol is no longer a risk factor. Maybe it was back in the day when you say you practiced medicine, but now it’s more refined. Low HDL coupled with high TG and high LDL is the “abnormal” cholesterol profile that is a major risk factor for CVD.

and Donald Trump is President of the United States.

I'm not a doctor, I'm just someone who has done a ton of research into diet and nutrition.

High blood cholesterol is still a risk factor:

You’re mischaracterising what I wrote.  I wrote ‘high blood cholesterol,’ not ‘acquired high blood cholesterol.’

You’re grasping at straws here.

I directly quoted you and you say that’s a mischaracterization.

You have a Trumpian-like refusal to admit when you’re wrong.

You’re a troll.  If I’d written ‘high acquired blood cholesterol,’ you’d have an argument.  But I didn’t.
