    Interesting slideshow. I am baffled why they failed to mention thyroid hormone, which is a major regulator of blood lipids.

    For some reason every time there is a presentation on cholesterol, diet and exercise always gets mentioned, but a slow metabolism from lack of thyroid hormone almost never gets a mention. And its the most controlling factor. But it always gets swept under the rug.
