The author criticizes a study that argues that a causal relationship between lowering cholesterol & mortality due to suicide, violence & accident doesn’t exist. Causal relationship is yet to be proven but a possible statistical relationship exists. Methodology of study showing a relationship between variables is questioned. Biological causal mechanism deserves further investigation. The authors of the original study answer criticism by stating that methodology was similar to that suggested.
