 Brain cholesterol question

I would appreciate receiving the following data:

What is the normal weight-% cholestrol (sterol in general) content of
the {*filter*} human (or other mammal) brain?

This information is remarkably hard to come by.  
Please cc: me by e-mail.

Thank you!

What sort of strange units do you use in the US? gm per lb? and mg per lb?
Why not just use the SI (Metric) units and make life easier? You would have
g per kg (parts per thousand) and mg per kg (parts per million). Perhaps
SI is taking over by stealth, first small, insignificant units like g and mg
then later all scientific measurements and finally consumer level.

Probably because people weigh themselves in pounds in the US.  The use of
milligrams is standard as well, for the measurement of {*filter*}.  So you have mgs
or grams per lb.

You might disagree with its logic, but that's how it's done within the borders
of one specific country. Nex

My serum cholesterol is 105 (or 2.7 in SI units), which is in the
bottom one percent.  Care to arrange for simultaneous IQ tests, with
a sizable bet as to who scores higher?

I believe Keith is correct here. Although I think it uneccessary and of
no additional benefit to have ones cholesterol below about 130, I also
do not believe that any major harm such as effecting brain function will
occur until levels get below 80. In my view Keith's 105 is on the
slightly low side of very healthy.

In any case, Keith, your challenge is not scientifically meaningful
because of the vast differential in genetically related IQ scores. The
real question would be, is your IQ substantially lower that when your
cholesterol was higher for a long period of time sometime in the past,
with the natural fall of IQ with age taken into account?

Really?  Is this generally known?  In the studies which established this
knowledge, what criterion for mental/emotional disorders was used?

        You just lost your bet.  Regardless of how dumb I might be (and there
are some mighty low estimates, mostly from the wife), I would never be
so irredeemably stupid as to take my previous post either as an insult
or a challenge.  But I'll give you a hint:  _this_ post is indeed
an....  in____ (four additional letters).
        Or perhaps you confused your test results. Maybe it's your IQ that is
105, which is OK.  If you study REAL REAL hard, you might get through
community college in about 6 years.
        But if you are at all concerned, radio-label all the cholesterol in
your brain (caution:  radio labels are very expensive, but then I
suspect you won't be needing much), and do a time series on your serum
cholesterol.  I suspect the geiger counter will bust its needle.
Implication?  Don't apply to a 4-year school.

No, this is not generally known.  Taking such an inference from an AM
radio newsbite is quite amusing actually.

Vegetarians ARE known for having a significantly lower incidence of many
diseases, such as certain forms of cancer and peripheral vascular disease.
The only significant complications of vegetarianism is undernutrition of
protein which can be easily avoided with a carefully planned diet, and
vitamin B12 deficiency, which is also a nonissue since vitamin tablets are
abundant and inexpensive.

Vegetarians also don't {*filter*}on chicken bones or get E. Coli from tainted
beef or Salmonella from chicken.

In fact, if I didn't love meat so much I'd be a vegetarian myself.  Too
bad I just love a big fat prime rib from time to time. :)

        The newsbyte part is true.  The disorder part is yours truly's unbiased
assessment.  Despite the fact that most vegetarians seem to be pills,
eschewing <g> meat is a noble effort and critically important step in
our social evolution, IMO.  I would hope that one day meat eating will
be viewed in the same light as child labor, torture, etc.  Too bad I too
am {*filter*}ed to it.
        Although the veggie burgers commercially available seem like dog food,
I have been served millet-burgers which were incredible.  Never had them
since.
        One thing I cannot fathom is people who hunt for sport.  Boggles my
mind.  My only solace is the statistics on hunting accidents--may they
increase every year.  There is no more of a poetic justice.  I would
just hope that people in hunting accidents would also be denied medical
treatment.

A few weeks ago my cat was diagnosed with having E. Coli in his intestines.
 The vet prescribed an antibiotic but I was reluctant.  I remember from
high school that E. Coli is naturally present in the intestines of many
animals so I looked further into it before using the antibiotics.  In fact,
every book I saw mantioned that E. Coli was naturally present in the
intestines of every mammal - one of those books was the section on
Nutrition of Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1990.  Question: is E. Coli
naturally present in intestines of mammals or not?  Liz
