Seriously. Think about it. Does it makes sense to measure cholesterol after you’ve fasted? OK, sure, gotta establish a baseline, see how high it always is. But think. Some people with high cholesterol never have heart attacks, while some with low cholesterol do. Uh, could it be because some low-baseline people chomp on Dorito and, kablooey, LDLs through the roof, while some high-baseline folks, well, that’s about as high as it ever gets. Seriously. If you want to clog a pipe (or a coronary artery), wouldn’t you jam as much stuff in at once?
