About this audiobook

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 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.

    Absolutely mandatory reading for any MD, dietician or nutritionist to be effective in the heart healthy myopic view on cholesterol and healthy fats.

    Dangerous, industry funded misinformation. People love to hear good news about their bad habits. It’s why these types of parasitic leaches cash in on your health every day.

    Fad diets and patronizing books such as these do two things. Put money in pockets and cadavers in the ground.

    There is some good information in here but I think they have a point to prove and will often go out of there way to twist some of the science to prove it.

    I got tired of fact checking.

    This would have gotten four stars but the authors kind of derailed on a couple chapters. They had my attention when they were discussing science-based medicine but lost me when they verged into a pseudo scientific rant. Otherwise, there was a lot of helpful information in my journey of nutritional minimalism.

    I borrowed this book from a co-worker. Most of the information I already know, but it was interesting to me to find that the real cause of heart disease is stress, oxidation, inflammation and sugar. Its plain and simple to understand language in addition to why the material is based on fact and the way the body uses fats and sugars is very motivational in getting me to make some changes in my diet to be a healthier person. I highly recommend it to EVERYONE who wants to live a long and enjoyable life.
