One of the paradoxes discovered in studies looking at cholesterol levels and health is that while one might reduce ones cholesterol to reduce a chance of a heart attack this seemed to raise the chances of dying from a violent death. The reason for this latter relationship is still unclear. Two meta analyses[1][2] conducted in the 1990's confirmed that men with low cholesterol levels had significantly higher rates of death from violence and suicide
