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.

    " Introduces a paradigm shift for which we may be ready... Or perhaps it serves to underscore my thought that we have NO IDEA how or what to eat. A worthwhile read, though observe caution: there are several glaring contradictions. "

    " Very good book full of interesting facts about cholesterol, what it does and doesn't do and why we need it as well as the truth about how to prevent heart disease. The recipe for health was no different than what I've read before in Dean Ornish's books or in Dr. Mark Hyman's book, The Blood Sugar Solution and I've personally experienced that this method works for weight loss and better heath. "

    " If you have heart disease or not, are on a statin or not this us a must read and a game changer! Although it is not a quick read it is packed with great info! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jesse Barnes | 2/2/2014

    " Great overview of the current state of cardiovascular science. This book goes through some of the history of the cholesterol myth, covers studies that contradict it, and past and current work that points at inflammation and oxidation as the real root causes of heart disease. Highly recommended for anyone with "high cholesterol" or any concerns about heart disease. "
