Michael Douglas head and neck cancer he claims was caused by HPV.  I didn't believe it since he is a long time smoker.  I was not aware of the latest data suggesting these cancers (Jamie Diamond) are from HPV.  This article suggests it is the # 16 strain.  The HPV vaccine recommended to all females now males age 9 to 26 should be protective:

I cannot imagine why anyone would not want the vaccine for their children.

If a person is overweight they should do their best to lose excess weight.  If they are not and their cholesterol is high than a statin drug for those at higher risk.   I rarely advise low cholesterol fat diets otherwise.   Some still will do that.   Exercise is always good.   But I have thought this was long overrated and mostly agree with this "new" recommendation:

New guidelines expected to downplay importance of lowering cholesterol

Posted 8:05 AM, February 17, 2015, by PIX11 Report   

(PIX11/CNN) – In a step that would reverse decades of thinking, a dietary guidelines panel suggests that consumers don’t need to worry about how much cholesterol is in their food.

“Cholesterol is not considered a nutrient of concern for overconsumption,” the 40-page report notes.

What nutrients are of concern, according to the panel? Vitamin D, calcium, potassium, fiber and iron – all of which are severely lacking from Americans’ diets. And sodium and saturated fat, which make up too much of Americans’ diets.

The draft was issued in December. The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee must send its final recommendation to the Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Agriculture before they get the final approval.

The American Heart Association classifies cholesterol in two ways: “good” and “bad.” It says too much of one type of cholesterol or not enough of another can put you at risk for coronary heart disease, heart attack or stroke.

The agency recommends all adults age 20 or older have their cholesterol checked every four to six years.

In Yiddish we call this disease meshugganosis.  I had two people over the years who were convinced beyond comprehension that fibers were coming out of their skin.  They would come into the office and insist that what appeared to be a fiber possibly from a carpet or upholstery of some sort on their hand or finger actually was growing out of their skin.  They would go from doctor to doctor insisting this.
 
I would give them the benefit of the doubt and send to infectious disease or skin specialists etc.  Nothing was ever confirmed.

 I don't know if Joni Mitchell (who I never listened to growing up) did too much LSD or what:

Perhaps readers will recall a private held company called Theranos that I posted is a big threat to present entrenched lab companies like Quest and LabCorp.   Well this is LabCorps response:
