Episode 255: We can measure lipoproteins but is there really any point?

In episode 255, Mike and James discuss the evidence around the measurement of lipoproteins and find out that while they are interesting from a research perspective, they are of little if any value in clinical practice. At the end of the podcast Mike gets not only irked but flummoxed and just this is worth the price of admission.
