Just a brief giggle. You recall that a reduced fat diet, packed with plant antioxidants raises Lp(a). Without the plant toxins it works even better to raise Lp(a). This paradox is explained by the immense power of the low fat diet to physically tear Lp(a) out of atheromatous plaque and place it in to the circulation in antigenically recognisable form. It's healing. Snigger.
This is powerful medicine. I don't know how many covalent bonds the lysines and glutamines in apo(a) have made to the lysines and glutamines in fibronectin. Let's say quite a few. But the low fat diet appears to be able to tear several hundred of these covalent bonds apart and then it reassembles the apo(a) molecule in to its original shape in the plasma. Gasp in awe. Well that's incredible.
So incredible that anyone who believes it does not realise what incredible means.
Incredible means unbelievable. Better not to believe unbelievable things. These are the believers who published (just a little name and shame here):
Silaste ML, Rantala M, Alfthan G, Aro A, Witztum JL, Kesäniemi YA, Hörkkö S.
and the believers who editorialised:

Even the Fairies at the bottom of my garden tell me not to believe stuff this stupid!
