This is exactly what I'm talking about Brute. We don't have to talk in extremes. It doesn't have to be high cholesterol or super low levels of cholesterol. You give yourself as an example of a healthy 37, well I certainly believe you, but you're an anomaly then. Because there are going to be very few, honest to goodness, healthy people with a BMI that high. Comparing yourself to super unhealthy people waaaay over on the other spectrum just seems like a mad discussion to have! It's a politicians way of talking, we can't have a sensible debate like that!

Surely the debate, and ultimately the agreement, lies in sensible discussion of the middle ground?
