Everywhere we look we are told that high cholesterol levels cause heart disease. Millions of people who consider themselves’ to be healthy are being told that they have 'high' cholesterol and they need to take a cholesterol-lowering drug everyday for the rest of their lives. Millions more people are avoiding foods that contain saturated fat and cholesterol.
However, the reality is that most people do not need to lower their cholesterol. In fact:
- More people die of heart disease with low cholesterol than high cholesterol
- Most people who have a heart attack have an average cholesterol level
$29 Billion Reasons to Lie about Cholesterol provides unequivocal evidence to show that the idea cholesterol causes heart disease is false. We have been made to worry about cholesterol for the sole purpose of sustaining a cholesterol-lowering industry that generates at least $29 billion each year.
The book also explains how a low fat / high carbohydrate diet (the diet that is recommended by dieticians) is likely to cause not only heart disease, but also obesity and diabetes.
Millions more people will end up with these conditions unless we re-examine the scientific evidence. The answers are staring us in the face but there is an unwillingness to accept them. This unwillingness stems from a desire to make profit by converting healthy people into patients.
$29 Billion Reasons to Lie about Cholesterol provides the facts; enabling readers to make informed choices about the prevention of heart disease and diabetes.
