Good job on getting it down. The best things you can do for your cholesterol is much the same as for your diabetes. Low fat, complex carb diet. Exercise. Ignore "men in black". He/she & their group ignore the reams of scientific data that shows the benefits of statin therapy. It's easy to make a claim about "many have died" from statins and not provide direct proof from primary sources.
