It is worth pointing out, not surprising to most of us heretics, that they found no correlation whatsoever of coronary arterial disease with the lipids:
Lipids accumulate in arterial walls in atherosclerosis. In the present study, we could find no evidence of an association between lipid fractions and CADB. Most patients were treated with lipid-lowering drugs, and this may be one of the reasons behind these negative findings, particularly in what concerns LDL cholesterol. In the present study, HDL cholesterol levels were also not correlated to CADB, although previous studies have been shown HDL to be negatively associated with the importance of coronary artery disease, whereas no such relation was noted involving LDL cholesterol –.
What shouldn't be surprising either, is that high glucose and high insulin (presumed) were significantly correlated, quote:
In the context of the present investigation, one may speculate that higher plasma glucose, probably in the presence of elevated plasma insulin, could be associated to a growth-stimulating effect on atherosclerotic lesions, perhaps involving magnesium as a cofactor for insulin-stimulated growth.

What also caught my attention is the reference #23:
After a brief look, it seems to tie with Dr. Kwasniewski's postulated Pentose Phosphate Pathway (Pentose Shunt). If that's the case it would be the first confirmation. It requires some more digging, might come back to it.
