The Best Marker for "Cholesterol" Risk

I belong to the International Network of Cholesterol Skeptics (THINCS). This group has been around since 2003 and is an on-line gathering place for clinicians, researchers and science writers who question the theory on cholesterol—that it contributes to heart disease, and that statins can help prevent heart attacks and strokes.


A wonderful bit of contradiction comes from the lofty towers of Harvard Medical School.

Harvard publishes a magazine called "Proto." Here is what Harvard says about their publication...

"Proto, a prefix of progress, connotes first, novel, experimental. Alone, it conjures an entire world of the new: discoveries, directions, ideas. In taking proto as its name, this magazine stakes its ground on medicine’s leading edge—exploring breakthroughs, dissecting controversies and opening a forum for informed debate."

Their May 20, 2021 article attacked the THINCS group for contributing "minority opinions" and Proto is boldly speaking out to keep this fringe group "from doing irreparable harm." (The link to this Proto article:

However, in 2011, Proto wrote quite the opposite as statin drugs were coming off of patent protection.

Which is it Mass General / Harvard - YOU CANNOT HAVE IT BOTH WAYS.

Thankfully the digital footprint is hard to erase, although Harvard has been guilty of this before. This is why I write content like this so when they try to eliminate it, I have the truth.

Here is an example of Harvard taking down valuable health information because of special interests:


What is the best marker?

It is the atherogenic index of plasma - AIP.

If you have not done lab tests with us then there is a 99.99% chance you have not heard about this marker.

The AIP is fundamental and understandable. It does not involve esoteric concepts that mean nothing to us like foam cells, little particle sizes, and intercalation into endothelium. Instead AIP is basically this.....

AIP is sugars divided by fats.
