Men whose total cholesterol levels were 200-239 mg/dL were 18% LESS likely to die during the next 5-13 years compared with men whose cholesterol levels were 160-199 mg/dL according to a 2008 meta-analysis of 5 studies in Japan which included a total of more than 173,000 people.
In other words, having HIGHER cholesterol levels was associated with a LOWER risk of death.
Or to say this in reverse, having HIGHER cholesterol levels was associated with a LOWER risk of death.
Why would I want to lower my cholesterol levels?
