I've had 3 previous Dr that obviously believed in Lipid hypothesis "wholeheartedly".
Anyone have a Dr. in the SF Bay area that hasn't bought the lipid hypothesis? All three failed to discover that most of my problems were pre-pre-diabetes (fasting glucose ~100, DIY GTT borderline), and instead put me on the statins for a few years.
And mention of SEAS, NHANCE, JUPITER, GISSI cholesterol studies just got me a reply that Framingham PROVED once and for all that high cholesterol causes heart disease and that I shouldn't be reading Time magazine for my health info (I don't, and I'm a scientist that went to a little tech school in Cambridge).
I don't want to argue with someone who doesn't see the difference between correlation and causality. Someone that isn't into homeopathy, healing crystals, and megadoses of vitamin (C,D,E,etc) either.
