    I grew up in a family that ate low fat. My father died of sudden cardiac arrest at age 41. My brother has had 3 heart attacks. All my siblings have high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Don't think the low fat is working for them.

    We do have the gene that is called "widow maker" in my family. Lots of sudden heart attacks.

    So far, at age 59, my cholesterol level and blood pressure are in normal range. But I work hard at it. I'm hoping eating the healthy fats and lower carbs will keep me in the normal range. I don't want to take the statins.

    Good article. I'm saving it.

    It's ingrained in me to stay away from fat. Fat makes you fat is what I've heard forever - but I know we need healthy fats, and I know I especially need to work on adding healthy fats to my daily intake!

    Thanks for the great information.

    This is very Important information about Statin drugs.

    I told my Dr. that I refused to pick up the statin drug she ordered for me and instead started the THM Plan before I read this article by Dr. Dwight Lundell, MD World Renowned Heart Surgeon

    The THM lifestyle is a Higher Fat, Low Carbs way of eating as we that are doing THM know.

    Straight up, I have no idea what end is up about cholesterol. I lowered mine from 350 to 175 with Atkins, but maybe it was less low carb and more like my 75 pounds lost? Truly don't know. So thanks, and I hope we keep researching this. .
