    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.

    Z. Karpinski says: "Easy to understand, helpful in practice"
    "Great summary of the cholesterol wars"

    What did you love best about The Great Cholesterol Myth?

    I love the procedural history.


    What other book might you compare The Great Cholesterol Myth to and why?

    Fat Chance - all of these books support the premise that we are chasing the wrong tail in our fight for health.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Too long for that. But it did make for a great car ride!
