If you have high cholesterol or are on a cholesterol lowering drug, please read the book, The Great Cholesterol Myth, by Johnny Bowden, PhD and Stephen Sinatra, MD.
There is a lot of new information about the relationship between cholesterol, saturated fat, and heart disease that everyone should know. MUCH OF THIS NEW INFORMATION REFUTES WHAT WE’VE BEEN TOLD FOR YEARS ABOUT CHOLESTEROL AND FAT. This book explains the issue in layman’s terms. Please do yourself a favor and read this book, especially if you are already on a statin drug.
Again, I encourage you to do this, not because I endorse everything that is said in the book, but because I believe there is some invaluable information in it that you need to know. Once you have armed yourself with this information, please talk with your doctor so the two of you can decide what is right for you.
