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:

"Anyone skeptical of the notion that there is more to heart disease than 'cut your fat, take a statin drug' would be well served by [listening to] this book." (William Davis, M.D.)
This is such important information. It is written in many places on blogs and podcasts and it is still treated as rare and unusual information.
The research is here, the information to save your own life is here, please read this.
The narrator is good also, considering the subject matter, he kept it interesting.
Thank you for writing this book.
Tell us about yourself! An Audible member since 2006 and a voracious reader always.
I will listen to it again because of all the helpful information offered.
I don't usually read this type of book, but due to high cholesterol problem, I decided to delve into this one. It was written with down-to-earth explanations which my doctor had neither the time or desire to go over with me. It also gave me other alternatives to statin drugs, which I immediately put to use and seem to be working like a charm.
I enjoyed Wilson's performance very much as he has a clear and smooth voice. He was an excellent choice for this material.
I did....so interesting and easy to understand. I could not put it down.
Very grateful that this book was in the Audible Library.
Data driven analysis is good but it contradicts current medical profession arguments about cholesterol hazards.
Lots of controversial ideas
I enjoy reading about both sides of an issue and this is definitely not the mainstream view
assuming their the same... it's a great piece of work - read or listened to.
realizing the actual role and importance of cholesterol and, therefore, the absurdity of the misconception.
exposing the real criminal (sugar)
the overall experience was moving
extremely informative, well written... just get it.
Yes, everyone. There is a lot of misinformation in conventional knowledge on saturated fat and cholesterol and the authors of this book thoroughly clear away all the misconceptions and skewed statistics on the subject.
I love the procedural history.
Fat Chance - all of these books support the premise that we are chasing the wrong tail in our fight for health.
Too long for that. But it did make for a great car ride!
The Great Cholesterol Myth is a wonderful look into our systems needs on a level we can all understand. It shares the way food can be our medicine and the every day choices we make add to and build our health or lead to the damage of our systems. Learn what to eat and why.
Enlightening, healthy, researched.
Every American should read this book.
If you take statins ( medication to lower cholesterol) it is a must read.
Physicians read it- makes sense!
I am electric!!!
This book was recommend to me by my uncle. When I found it here, i downloaded it due to lack of time I had to actually sit and read. Unless you are a real health nut this book is hard to get into. It is very interesting, but I would not say "enjoyable".
Of course people can say there are three sides to every story. Mine, yours and the truth is somewhere in the middle. So, what makes this story the truth? Well, I choose to believe this version. I felt it was well presented, made sense and had information which could back of the facts which were presented. (Some which I found)
There is a part where he explains how to break down your blood work to tell if you are a high risk for heart disease which is more accurate then the basic blood testing conducted now. Do this math on your own and determine if you need a Cholesterol medication instead of your doctor telling you. In addition there are further tests available many of which is covered by insurances.
Great info for anyone needing or wanting to learn about Cholesterol.
