    For decades we have been chasing cholesterol numbers, but now medical science is making headway in identifying new risk factors that show promise in the hunt for the silent killer.

    The tide is turning.

    Just a thought, wouldn't these posts be better suited for the heart disease community? I don't now how they are related to cholesterol, certainly to heart disease. You should share with them.

    Thank you iride, but I think the underlying reason people are concerned about cholesterol is they are care about cardiovascular health. That's why they came here.

    My postings address that audience with cutting edge science.

    Actually, I think people go to the heart disease community to discuss cardiovascular health. I know I come here to discuss cholesterol, not air pollution but my only thought was you should share it with that community as well.
