"We believe the effects of our research could be far-reaching and of great interest to the pharmaceutical, academic and clinical communities," Dr. Huang said.

For example, drugs that enhance or promote the protective activity of TGF-beta in cardiovascular cells should be effective in treating or preventing atherosclerosis, alone or in combination with other cholesterol-lowering agents.

Nuff said.....I am sure they got the results the people who funded them were looking for....aka big Pharma....more drugs...more money....more sick people

Boy, with all the wonderful things that statins do and MDs prescribing them to everyone (including for "preventative" purposes!), one would think that the heart disease death rate would have come down a bit. It hasn't. At all.

Funny how people with cholesterol levels that are too low (or just on the low end of normal) get heart disease as well.

While I don't think that modern allopathic cardiology is quite as bad as gastroenterology, it's up there in terms of bilking people out of both their health and money. *Proper* magnesium and/or potassium supplementation (and in the diet, of course) would put a lot of cardiologists out of business...

Along with heart disease not going down, Anthony Colpo pointed out that people with low cholesterol levels have just as much atherosclerosis as those with high cholesterol. Something doesn't compute.
