Pauling was the first to reference a study that seemed to show this "effect" in laboratory animals, and if memory serves, the work was done at Loma Linda.
Pauling was just being thorough.
However, after I personally begin adding lysine to my regimen - which closely matches Pauling's recommendations in HOW TO LIVE LONGER AND FEEL BETTER (1986) my cholesterol DROPPED 20 points, from 180 mg/dl to the current 160 mg/dl, and that does have been concerned, for my cholesterol seems a bit too low.
