The concept that there is such a thing as "bad cholesterol" is an oversimplification of a faulty premise. It will take standard medical practice a long time to catch up, and may never be allowed to catch up because as the OPs video shows, cholesterol isn't the problem, the problem is Insulin resistance leading to damaged (oxidized) LDL, and the only way to undamage it is to stop eating sugar and ultra-processed food and seed oils. The most meaningful statistic on a blood workup is the ratio of triglycerides to total cholesterol, this gives some meaningful insight into your state of metabolic health, your LDL numbers only matter in that context.

In addition to the above video, Dr.Eckberg explains it in specific terms...
