I happened upon this article and found this quote very funny!
Talking about variations people have in their cholesterol test results…
Seasonal variation has been shown to affect cholesterol values. In one study, the cholesterol levels of subjects who were not receiving treatment were an average of 7.4 mg/dL higher in December than in June. The reasons for this are still unknown.
OMG! Did they really just say that they don’t know why a person’s cholesterol would be higher in December than in June?!?
And those are the people we are depending on to help us with our health.
Come on scientists! Apply yourselves! I bet you can come up with a reason why people’s cholesterol is higher during the holiday season in December.
Oops, don’t want to give it away for them!
Anyway, here is the article.
