Specifically, the new recommendations are:

For high-risk patients (those with a 10-year risk* of a cardiac event of 20%): The LDL cholesterol should be lowered to below 100 mg/dL, and consideration should be given to lowering it to below 70 mg/dL.

For moderately high-risk patients (those with a 10-year risk* of a cardiac event between 10 and 20%): LDL cholesterol should be lowered to below 130 mg/dL, and consideration should be given to lowering it to below 100 mg/dL.

For intermediate-risk patients (those with a 10-year risk* of a cardiac event less than 10%): LDL cholesterol should be lowered to below 130 mg/dL.

For low-risk patients (those with a 10-year risk* of a cardiac event less than 1%): LDL cholesterol should be below 160 mg/dL.

If low cholesterol levels lower heart disease, I wonder what it does to cancer and infectious disease rates, and what the effect on total mortality is. I also wonder what influence pharmaceutical companies had on that decision.

The benefits of high cholesterol by Uffe Ravnskov - very important reading. If you think that cholesterol is bad, you should think how much we heard that meat is bad for us (even red meat?!).
I think that this is what I read a couple of year ago. High cholesterol is not healthy only when we are young, as we get older it should raise and those seniors that have high cholesterol live longer.
There are some people that have four times greater cholesterol levels (something is mutated) and they are more resistant to viruses, but they have much trouble with fungi in their bloodstream.
