    "All cells have the ability to make, absorb or excrete cholesterol."  Your own statement emphasizes just how vital our "normal" cholesterol is? Only now are we learning just how potentially damaging our reductase inhibitors really are. Interfering with the synthesis of cholesterol, ubiquinone and dolichols via mevalonate inhibition is like playing God. All three are vitally necessary for humans (and most other eukaryotes) to function. Statins are potentially very damaging unless intended for anti-inflammation, in which case we are dosing roughly thirty times too much.
