Fat and Cholesterol Don't Cause Heart Attacks

This book is dedicated to Uffe Ravnskov, MD, Ph.D. for exposing the myth that fat and cholesterol cause coronary heart disease and that statins are safe and cardio-protective for everyone.

As will be seen, no studies support the notion that restricting fat reduces coronary morbidity or mortality. More importantly, government recommendations mandating low fat diets are likely the cause of the escalating epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes.

Several chapters detail the significant adverse health effects of statins that have been ignored or suppressed in reports of drug company sponsored trials. 

In addition, any benefits of statins are clearly unrelated to lowering LDL or cholesterol, but are due to their anti-inflammatory and especially anticoagulant activities. This clotting or "atherothrombotic" hypothesis appears to explain all of the factors known to cause or protect against coronary heart disease.

Other chapters by THINCS (The International Network of Cholesterol Skeptics) members discuss the role of infections and sulfur deficiency and the numerous ways data are doctored to hype the benefits and minimize the dangers of statins.

All of these contributions expose the fallacies of the lipid hypothesis (the idea that there is a link between blood cholesterol levels and the occurrence of heart disease) which was called "the greatest scientific deception of this century, perhaps of any century" by the distinguished nutritionist George Mann, former Co-Director of the Framingham Study.
