Heart disease is the #1 killer. However, traditional heart disease protocols--with their emphasis on lowering cholesterol--have it all wrong. Emerging science is showing that cholesterol levels are a poor predictor of heart disease and that standard prescriptions for lowering it, such as ineffective low-fat/high-carb diets and serious, side-effect-causing statin drugs, obscure the real causes of heart disease. Even doctors at leading institutions have been misled for years based on creative reporting of research results from pharmaceutical companies intent on supporting the $31-billion-a-year cholesterol-lowering drug industry.

The Great Cholesterol Myth reveals the real culprits of heart disease, including:

- Inflammation

- Fibrinogen

- Triglycerides

- Homocysteine

- Belly fat

- Triglyceride to HCL ratios

- High glycemic levels

Bestselling health authors Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., and Stephen Sinatra, M.D. give readers a 4-part strategy based on the latest studies and clinical findings for effectively preventing, managing, and reversing heart disease, focusing on diet, exercise, supplements, and stress and anger management.

Get proven, evidence-based strategies from the experts with The Great Cholesterol Myth .

This book along with those from Ben Goldacre will make you wonder about the soundness of the physicians' prescriptions.

It certainly appears that institutions were setup to serve the employees and lobbying companies rather than the public.

Another book in the growing number of research articles and medical books denying that cholesterol is a good marker for predicting heart attacks. Well worth reading before you make up your mind on the topic
