Regardless of whether you're someone who has been prescribed statins to lower your cholesterol or not, everyone should read this book. Drs. Sinatra and Bowden deconstruct the myths that have grown up around the "dangers" of high cholesterol and the near ubiquitous prescribing of statin drugs.

It seems that sooner or later pretty much everyone is going to have their doctor tell them they need to take statins. You would be well advised to prepare yourself in advance for an important conversation with your doctor about this.

This book explains the real causes of heart disease and the lifestyle changes you can and should make without taking drugs to live a long and healthy life. And for those already dealing with a variety of diseases, the things you can and should do starting immediately to better manage your situation.

I highly recommend this book as a tool to further educate yourself about he sorry state of nutrition in the western world and how you can take control of your life and your health. Let's face it, nobody cares as much about your own health as you do!

I found the information in this book to be important but not thourough enough.
Good for someone being introduced to the theory that cholesterol is not a significant factor in the cause of heart disease.
For those who already agree with the theory and understand the concepts behind it there is almost nothing new here.

This book makes a lot of sense. I could not put it down.
Makes you wonder about statins and all the side effects.

Don't over-eat, a half hour moderate daily exercise on average and limit your sugar intake. Most else flows from that.

It really lays out the truth behind the cholesterol lowering drugs, the massive amount of money the drug companies are making, while at the same time destroying our health. It also goes into depth about the fact that it's not high cholesterol that is the problem, but the size of our Low Density and High Density Lipoproteins that determine our health risk, as well as the ratio of trigs to HDL. It also points out the health dangers of having low cholesterol.
The book also goes into the whole saturated fat myth, and discusses the problems with edible oils such as corn, canola, soy, shortening and margarine.
I was looking for a book for a female friend who is taking statins, which are giving her horrible side effects, in an effort to convince her to come off the dangerous things. I wanted to read it before giving it to her, to make sure it was a good book. It really does cover all the bases.

The book came in good time, amazing facts on many levels, I have high cholesterol and have refused 3 different prescriptions and glad I did. My HDL went up after I started taking coconut oil because it was too low. Thanks for the research! D.W.
