I think scientists still stick to their guns because way more pizza chompin
cig smokin' french fry eatin fatties die of massive coronaries than Jim
Fixx's ;)  That notwithstanding, nobody is guaranteeing anybody anything
with the 'how to live' suggestions.  It's all about minimizing the chances
that the next barrel is the one with the bullet in it.
This pizza chompin former cig smokin but current french fry eatin fattie is
thinking of picking up running or biking or something.  And continuing to
drink my coffee!

Another point here to keep in mind.  If there is consensus among the "scientists" then the theory, by 
definition, is bogus.  There is no consensus in true science.  That would lead one to the conclusion 
that there are researchers who are following the scientific method and perusing a different 
hypothesis.  It is possible that as been pointed out previously that elevated cholesterol is the result of 
arterial inflammation.  A chronic inflamed condition could result in the breaking off of these plaque 
particles.  The question becomes one of how many different hypotheses have been studied?  And what 
were the results.
Do the oils in boiled coffee result in inflammation of the arterial walls?  Is this what triggers the 
increase in cholesterol?
I monitor my cholesterol levels periodically and have since the early 1970s and it has stayed in the 
same range all of these years.  Weight and diet do indeed impact it but not excessively.
The results of these clinical studdies produce results for the average man, an individual who does not 
exist.
If you suffer from what today is considered high lipid panel numbers then you should be careful as to 
what dietary changes you make as there could be unpleasant consequences.

Heriditary conditions dictate cholesterol more than diet or weight,
but those 2 are just as important in the grand scheme.  That said,
whether you choose to be buried in a large casket or small is your
decision..
