According to Dr. Esselstyn, a moderate level of cholesterol (total serum cholesterol between 150 & 200 mg/dl) still kills.

He writes, “For example, 35% of the cases of ischemic heart disease found among the Framingham Heart Study cohort occurred among those with total serum cholesterol levels between 150 and 200 mg/dL. In contrast, few of those with levels below 150 mg/dL developed the disease, and none died of it.” (1)
