3. I'm not convinced modern medicine really understand cholesterol and fats in diets

 

And I think statins are more dangerous than today's average doctor understands.

The scientific evidence that either high number is good or bad for you is minimal. And recent studies indicate very little correlation between high cholesterol and death rates. Yes, hyper-cholesterol, in the 300 range, can be damaging. But high normal range does NOT correlate to higher death rates.

Doctors are not very well educated in nutrition. My sister the doctor says she had one 8 hour class in Med School on nutrition.
