David Diamond

A professor of psychology, molecular pharmacology, and pharmacology at the University of South Florida, David Diamond has contributed a great deal to the understanding of LDL cholesterol and heart disease. One argument he makes is that high cholesterol, even high LDL cholesterol, can actually be healthy. He also has an objective analysis presentation of the risks and benefits of statin from a perspective of clinical and epidemiological research. Diamond, along with medical doctors Malcolm Kendrick and Uffe Ravnskov, have co-authored landmark papers on LDL and cardiovascular mortality.
