Exellent Cholesterol Post

Richard from "Free The Animal" posted another great one on cholesterol.  This is a highly recommended read.  You have been told what your cholesterol numbers are, but can you believe them?  If low you might think you are safe.  If high you may think you are in trouble.  The truth is that you just don't know.  The way out is to get it measured and not rely on a calculation.  I plan on getting mine measured, not tested, then next time I get it done.  According to Richard "Our preferred method is NMR (LipoScience) LDL particle number, probably the most accurate of all. Second best: apoprotein B, direct measured LDL, and non-HDL."
