    DescriptionHeart disease is the #1 killer. However, traditional heart disease protocols--with their emphasis on lowering cholesterol--have it wrong. This book reveals the real culprits of heart disease, including inflammation, fibrinogen, triglycerides, homocystine, belly fat, and high glycemic levels. 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 levels Bestselling health authors Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., and Stephen Sinatra, M. D. give readers a 4-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.

    Review quote
    "Full of useful facts, backed up by the research literature, this book is entertaining and accessible to just about anybody who cares about their health. A must-read for those who are worried about their cholesterol levels and on the fence with statin therapy." - Stephanie Seneff, B.S., M.S., E.E., Ph.D., Senior Research Scientist, Massachusetts Institute of Technology"Increasingly, doctors are questioning assertions that cholesterol is responsible for arterial disease, and that effective management requires lowering of cholesterol levels, especially with statins. At the same time, the noxious properties of the latter are being appreciated. It is therefore timely that Bowden and Sinatra provide this very readable explanation of why they think the way they do. Many readers will be persuaded." - Hywel Davies, M.D., F.R.C.P., F.A.C.P., F.A.C.C., former Chief of Cardiology at the Denver VA Hospital"Jonny Bowden, along with Dr. Stephen Sinatra, demonstrates with compelling logic backed by scientific studies, that doctors are doing more harm than good by prescribing statins as if they were after-dinner mints, with the false hope that a lower cholesterol level will prevent heart disease when underlying inflammation and oxidative stress are the real root causes of heart disease." - Todd LePine M.D., The UltraWellness Center "Dr. Bowden and Dr. Sinatra do an outstanding job providing a deep dive into all the causes of heart disease, while clarifying the role cholesterol plays. I would encourage this book to be required reading for all health science students, nutritionists, and physicians who treat patients!" - Colette Heimowitz, M.Sc., Vice President of Nutrition and Education, Atkins Nutritionals, Inc."If you're concerned about your cholesterol level and are thinking of taking a statin drug, this book is a must read! It will change the way you think about heart disease--and it may save your life!" - Prudence Hall, M.D., Founder and Medical Director, The Hall Center
