As discussed by Cordain, Wolf and here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15172426 modern HG's and our Paleo ancestors are said to have had LDL levels around 50 - 70 mg/dl.
Since I'm trying to live and eat more like my ancestors did to achieve optimal health and avoid disease, why am I not supposed to be concerned by my new LDL level of 240 mg/dl since switching to eating Paleo? Sure my CRP is 0.2, my TRG and HDL are really good, but my LDL increased from 159 to 240 in a matter of months. Is that normal?
My understanding is that such high LDL makes me susceptible to heart disease due to the oxidation of LDL. No?
I've read a lot on the subject - but it seems there are just as many studies that link high LDL to heart disease as there are studies that don't.
