With all these folks dying. I had to do my PHA recently, and of course they took my labs. My cholesterol was 230 or so. The doc freaked.
I was relating this to my mom, who spent decades as a Registered Nurse Practitioner. Think of a nurse with a doctorate.
She told me simply that our grandparents, and her grandparents, died with sky-high cholesterol. In their 90's.
Maybe we should focus less on how much red meat people are eating, and more on what chemicals they're ingesting, either with their food or recreationally.
