    Love your articles and was wondering if you might be able to help with a questions regarding niacin. I have psoriasis and read conflicting information about Niacin and it’s affects on my condition. Do you have any insight you can share?

    Cholesterol has very little impact on heart disease (HDL is slightly anticoagulant). Niacin is a vasodialator. This is likely the only mechanism by which niacin helps heart health. I postulate that ANY drug taken in a dose that interferes with cholesterol synthesis or metabolism is an overdose. The Minnesota Coronary study found that every 30mg/dl decrease in cholesterol caused a 22% increase in death. Hence it should have been obvious that anything that interferes with cholesterol is dangerous. Of course, the study was buried for decades and we have been harming people by messing with their cholesterol ever since.
