    I’ve read a few paleo authors that have focused the blame on “small dense” LDL and not to worry about “large fluffy” LDL. Thoughts?

      Yeah, I think that’s true. Apparently many of the inflammatory factors mentioned (including polyunsaturated free fatty acids and increased estrogen/decreased progesterone and testosterone etc) decrease the size of LDL particles, and damage them, and this correlates with increased heart disease.
