The Blood Type Diet Archives Volume 4
Does that mean we have to supplement?

In Response To: Re: Is cholesterol level of 117 too low? (Diane H.)
From what I have read levels below 160 could have bad results on your health and could attribute to colon cancer. The optimum is 180.
My last total cholesterol test was 144. If the optimum is 180, perhaps I need to feast on squid, shrimp, lobster, and other high cholesterol goodies?
That just doesn't sound right. Since my body has found its way to this level -- and this is from a blood test, not from a test of whether cells and tissues have a sufficient amount of cholesterol -- I am inclined to live with it.
(Also, I supplement my diet regularly with Thai coconut milk curries, so I don't think there's too much danger of my cholesterol levels falling through the floor. :-)
