There is plenty of evidence in the real world that low hdl is not a risk
in populations with low ldl and total cholesterol who are eating plant
based diets. Okinawans, Tarahumara Indians are just two examples
where the population has hdl levels in the 20's and have little or no
heart disease, not to mention exemplary longevity. Tarahumara's
have been studied extensively over the years as have other
populations that fit this profile. For some reason these facts are
ignored or forgotten over and over. See
http://www.ajcn.org/cgi/reprint/35/4/741.pdf as one example.
