Publisher's Summary

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 level

Bestselling health authors Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., and Stephen Sinatra, M.D. give listeners a four-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.

What the Critics Say

"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.)

    "Packed full of great evidence."

    I was skeptical about this book, but it was recommended by two PhD mentors, so I gave it a shot. I was extremely impressed. It's worth the listen/read. The narrator in the audiobook was pretty annoying and the tone of the book was condescending at times, but overall, I highly recommend it.

    "The REAL story about cholesterol!"
    What did you love best about The Great Cholesterol Myth?

    The Great Cholesterol Myth demystifies the idea that eating saturated fats from meats and other natural foods are bad for you. The doctor gets right to the point and explains, in detail, what really causes plague in arteries and provides real-life solutions for preventing and even reversing arteriosclerosis. It's thought provoking and compelling. I've listened to it (3) times already! If you care about your health and want to live heart-disease free, listen to this book!

    "Lots of valuable information"

    Very useful book downside is the information could be condensed to 1/3 of the book retaining key facts.I dont drink alcohol and promoting red wine is senseless- its a cellular poison and its resveratol content is hugely insignificant anyway.
    Overall the audiobook is so good I will buy the physical book for references.

    "Packed with great information about heart disease"

    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!

    "Life saving and informative."

    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 love Audible. I think Mario Martinez's Audiobook "Mind-Body Code" is my overall favorite so far.
