He says that results of a big trial, done before the cholesterol = clots hypothesis became popular, and never published, have now been made public. They are against the conventional wisdom. The tide seems to be turning. Clot prevention is not about reducing cholesterol. It is about protecting the endothelium (lining of blood vessels) and reducing the risk of blood clots forming, and reducing the size and tenacity of any clots that do form.
Surprise surprise. It is Nitrous Oxide which protects. Which leads to sunshine and Vitamin D.
There are other interesting points, all relevant to those with AF wishing to reduce blood clot risk.
