Your opinion on cholesterol's perceived evil, and the clinical the jump to statins for those with high cholesterol would be appreciated.

I recently had my blood work done and my cholesterol was 230, but my HDL was good. My doctor luckily didn't jump to statins but recommended fish oil. Im 42 and do not have any family history of heart issues.

To tie in, your thoughts on keto/paleo, which is my go to when i want to drop a few pounds.. It obviously comes with it's cholesterol. Does dropping the high sugar/processed grain benefit outweigh cholesterol increase for someone with higher cholesterol? Can sugar affect the circulatory?

Thanks for dropping in!
