Episode 201: Please stop measuring all those cholesterol levels – Part II

In episode 201, James and Mike continue on with deconstructing the concept of cholesterol measuring and lowering. We talk about various scenarios as to when one could measure cholesterol but quickly come to the realization that if one looks at the best science and uses a logical thought process, the whole concept of cholesterol measurement for individual patients is unfortunately built upon a house of cards.
