And this can vary quite a bit depending on individual (and genetic)
chemistry. I'm by no means skinny, and don't particularly try to limit
cholesterol intake, but my cholesterol is typically in the 70 to 95
(quite low - low enough to generally prompt comment from doctors) range.
This appears to be genetic, as my father and at least one of my
brothers are the same way.
