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.)
An easy to understand book that I did not want to stop listening to. Keep a note book and pen near by because you will want to write down some of things you hear. You might want to buy the hard copy to give to your doctor to read.
I am thankful that someone took time to put all this info in one place. it was great listening to, but I will be buying the book for reference material.
I love Audible. I think Mario Martinez's Audiobook "Mind-Body Code" is my overall favorite so far.
For anyone interested in good health this book nails it. If you are in a rush the last two chapters have the useful information that you can immediately integrate into your life.
One of the best books I've listened to about the cholesterol myth. Every doctor practicing medicine should read this book, and stop being enslaved by your idol Big Pharma. It's an eye opening experience. There's a lot of great information within the pages of this book. I highly recommend it.
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.
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.
I found this book to be extremely informative and enlightening. Many of the beliefs about Cholesterol and health which have been prevalent in our society for the past decades are debunked using actual data (imagine that). As I listened to the book, I found that many of the authors' findings were in line with my own observations about the health & habits of people that I know. The information & guidance provided in this book was compelling to me. I definitely plan to purchase the Kindle version so that I can begin to follow the recommended medical action plan.
I found that the narration was slow and robotic-like. It was very strange. I was forced to play the audio book at 1.5x or even 2x speed to get through it.
