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.

"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 narrator was a bit plodding, but that doesn't matter in the slightest for this fine book. It's absolutely brimming with great insights into how the cardiovascular system works and what things actually do and do not cause heart disease. Those insights are also translated into real world things every person can do to reduce his/her risk of developing heart disease. I can't recommend this book highly enough. Buy it!
I recommend this book to everyone, especially people on Statin drugs for high Cholesterol or considering a LCHF diet.
Very interesting read
Very useful book. A complete guide on how to regain health back. Also full of information as to why lowering cholesterol is a bad thing. If you implement the advice in this book you will live longer and feel great.
