I hears dr. Esselstyn mention efflux capacity in a talk. Here is something I found:

http://www.nejm.org/doi/pdf/10.1056/NEJMoa1001689

Evidently it is not so much the hdl level but its ability to use microphages (I think??)

Apparently statins do not improve this ability but another drug was mentioned. (Is it a diabetes drug?)

Has anyone more information on this? Do you think eating a plant based diet improves this ability in HDL?
If this system works right it seems to improve intima media thickness.
