This caught my attention: "I should mention that the changes that typically occur in blood cholesterol levels with changing saturated fat intake tend to occur in both the ‘good’ and ‘bad’ cholesterol fractions. That is, when saturated fat is reduced, both good and bad cholesterol typically goes down and vice versa."

I am someone who has been on cholesterol medication for years. I've been told it's genetic. The statins they've put me on have been able to lower the LDL's, but nothing has been able to raise my HDL. Crestor helped a bit, but the side effects were too painful.

Based on what you wrote above would it make sense to try to increase my saturated fat intake in hopes of raising my HDL, while continuing to take the statin to keep LDL down?

I don't know enough about exactly what statins do to answer that with anything but ignorance. David Cohen might have some better insight.

Is it okay to cook with extra virgin olive oil when sauteeing vegetables and meat? Or does this amount of heat damage its composition?
