None of the articles say anything much about the diet and more for a promotion of a new synthetic drug to be produced. There are many studies in science journals that are showing in fact that cholesterol is not the precursor to any heart disease and neither is fat for that matter. Inflammation from sugars and grains have a major impact on the heart, basically the exact opposite that has been pushed since the 80's "low fat high carb" intake.
As an example here are some interesting statistics.
*75% of people who have heart attacks have normal cholesterol
*Older patients with lower cholesterol have higher risks of death than those with higher cholesterol. (vi)
*Countries with higher average cholesterol than Americans such as the Swiss or Spanish have less heart disease.
It would be stupid to say genes do not play a role, but a lot of the information I read shows that diet can be the cause to trigger a genetic reaction.
I think as science advances it will be interesting to see where it all goes in regards to our food intake.
