A few studies found a correlation though. Heart Attack Defense Review One of them is based on data collected during the famous Framingham study in Massachusetts. The correlation factor is a statistical measure scientists use when they try to measure how well or bad two factors are correlated. This factor ranges from 0 to 1, with 1 being 100% correlation and 0 no correlation at all. From a statistical point of view, a bare minimum of 0.5 is necessary to prove a possible correlation. The above study found a correlation coefficient of 0.36 between the level of cholesterol and atherosclerosis. Statistically speaking, this is totally unacceptable or at least would be so if this study was dealing with any other subject. It is very strange indeed that a study like that even managed to create a certain degree of controversy. Except for the statistics, there have been many more negative remarks following this specific study and the Framingham study as well, reducing their reliability and impact. The scientists conducting them were so passionate (and biased) to prove a positive correlation between cholesterol and atherosclerosis that literally used every possible mean to achieve it.
