Richard Nikoley decided 2 years ago to transform his body by eating a paleo diet.
He has a blog called FreetheAnimal.com
Richard puts a lot of informative stuff about diet on his blog so from time to time I will add some of his posts to this site.
Here is an interesting study about cholesterol that Richard posted:
~ In the American Journal of Epidemiology, which cholesterol level is related to the lowest mortality in a population with low mean cholesterol level; a 6.4-Year Follow-up Study of 482,472 Korean Men? You guessed it.
A low cholesterol level (<165 mg/100 ml) was associated with increased risk of total mortality, even after eliminating deaths that occurred in the first 5 years of follow-up. The risk of death from coronary heart disease increased significantly in men with the highest cholesterol level (£252 mg/100 ml). There were various relations between cholesterol level and cancer mortality by site. Mortality from liver and colon cancer was significantly associated with a very low cholesterol level (<135 mg/100 ml) without any evidence of a preclinical cholesterol-lowering effect. With lengthening follow-up, the significant relation between a very low cholesterol level (<135 mg/100 ml) and mortality from stomach and esophageal cancer disappeared. The cholesterol level related with the lowest mortality ranged from 211 to 251 mg/100 ml, which was higher than the mean cholesterol level of study subjects.
