An ecological perspective of cholesterol

Christopher H Cantor
Med J Aust 2002; 176 (11): 564.

To the Editor: The Lipid management guidelines — 2001 supplement1 is no doubt full of cardiovascular wisdom. Unfortunately, the authors appear oblivious to the fact that people are more than just cardiovascular systems. I found no mention of the risks of violent deaths associated with low cholesterol levels, which in some studies have been found to offset the decreased cardiovascular mortality benefits.2
