2. Decreases/increases as the synthesis of taurine from any and all precursors (including methionine and cysteine) increases/decreases (wild card: arsenic in the diet – see Nielsen).

3. Decreases/increases as the synthesis of cholesterol increases/decreases from any and all precursors (including dietary or supplemental squalene).

4. Decreases/increases as bile acid salts intake increases/decreases.
