The cholesterol and calorie hypotheses are both dead — it is time to focus on the real culprit: insulin resistance


This is sadly an incredibly naive perspective. As the person who developed the Inflammation and Heart Disease Theory, I am always amazed at how little people understand the Theory when they are discussing Inflammation and Heart Disease. It also shows a lack of understanding of the anatomic-physiologic relationship, which I laid out in the mid-1990s along with the Inflammation Theory. There is no cholesterol myth except for those who like to hear themselves say it. Repeating it like a mantra doesn't make it real. Please read the actual Inflammation and Heart Disease Theory along with the follow up studies which look at the importance of quantifying tissue change to answer the important questions.
