In basic term of what I understanding; Cholesterol which is produced in the liver and the intestines (not form food) is just a way your body transfer fats and lipids (steroid hormones) through the body. It also is used as inflammatory response to protect cells from damage. Usually people with high LDL cholesterol indicates that there are some underlining health issue your body is trying to protect its cells from. Examples could be adrenal issue or thyroid issue which can lead to waste buildup in the blood stream. This cause the body to produce higher than normal levels of cholesterol to help protect the structure of the cells.

LDL an HDL are products of your liver. This study is only taking about blood content produced by the liver. Eggs, from the previous, post only contain dietary Cholesterol which the liver turns into either LDL or HDL. With a negligible proportion turned to LDL.

The study, from the brief, looks to be a genetic study of black vs white production of LDL and it's chance of CHD.

That's kind of a weak defense. Scroll to table 2 here. Only the people eating no cholesterol have healthy LDL levels (50-70)

Ah, now I see. You're a vegetable. With you're vegetable propaganda.

Conclusion: Vegetarian diet was associated to lower levels of TG, TC and LDL as compared to the diet of omnivores.

Yes. That is true but Vegetarian diets and every other diet level out when you take the deficiencies of all diet into account. Also, vegetarian diets are functionally impossible without supplements.

Humans are obligate omnivores. Vegetarians are the pandas of humanity. Cute but worthless.
