Product description

Heart 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

"The authors have done their homework, and rather than rotely 'following the leader.' They have dug into the extensive research and correlated it with their wide clinical experience to reveal the truth. This book can save many lives, including your own!" - Hyla Cass, M.D., author of 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health "Thanks to the extensive scientific evidence provided by Bowden and Sinatra, the truth about cholesterol will hopefully end the utter madness that has plagued our society for far too long. Don't even think about taking another statin drug, cutting your fat and cholesterol intake, or other 'heart-healthy' measures until you read The Great Cholesterol Myth." --Jimmy Moore, author of Livin' La Vida Low Carb and A Patient's Guide to Understanding Your Cholesterol Test Results "This powerful new book will help the cholesterol test get the rest it deserves." -- Alan Christianson, N.M.D., co-author, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Thyroid Disease "If you want to know the truth about cholesterol, and what you absolutely must do to improve your heart health, this is the book for you. Jonny Bowden and Dr. Stephen Sinatra reveal the facts in a compelling and insightful way. This invaluable book belongs on the bookshelf of anyone who cares about the truth in medicine and healing." --Daniel Amen, M.D., CEO, Amen Clinics, Inc., Author of Use Your Brain to Change Your Age "Got high cholesterol or heart disease? Get this book!" --Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D., author of Beat Sugar Addiction Now! and From Fatigued to Fantastic! "Finally! This timely book, written by the eminently qualified dream team of Dr. Jonny Bowden and Dr. Stephen Sinatra, exposes and unravels the great American cholesterol scam. Statin drugs sell in the U.S. for over $30 billion per year, but do they really prevent heart disease? No! This 'must read' book will tell you how to really prevent heart disease and live a longer, healthier, leaner, fuller life." --Dean Raffelock, D.C., Dipl. Ac., D.A.A.I.M., D.I.B.A.K., D.A.C.B.N., C.C.N., author of A Natural Guide to Pregnancy and Postpartum Health "The book you're holding is dangerous, and may even upset you. That's because everything you know about cholesterol is probably wrong. Doctors Jonny Bowden and Stephen Sinatra provide both the science to vindicate this unfairly demonized molecule and a plan of action so you can attain optimal health." - JJ Virgin, best-selling author of The Virgin Diet
