A recent systematic review published in BMJ found an inverse association between LDL-C and all-cause mortality in 92% of 68,094 elderly persons. In other words, in the vast majority of those over 60 years old, high LDL-C(so-called bad cholesterol) was associated with lower death rate from all causes compared with those with low LDL-C level. Yes, you read it right, it sounds crazy because it is the opposite of what cardiologists are telling patients all over the world. If you doubt whether the authors are crazy, you can check the 1st 2 authors (Uffe Ravnskov and David Diamond) on internet (say Wikipedia or just google it). I personally think they are independent researchers not influenced by conflicts of interest. Those experts who wrote the guielines for lowering cardiovascular risk (by lowering LDL-C with drugs) have enormous amounts of competing interests(please see the book "Big Fat Surprise").
