Put down that piece of bacon! Wait, wrong book. Go ahead and pick up the bacon. Have a piece of toast with real butter on it too. Cholesterol might not be the culprit of heart disease after all, just the convenient whipping boy.
Have you ever heard the words, "A new study has found that..." and then there's some new food you have to stop eating? Yup. All the time, right? It seems the medical community is intent on taking away every single, gosh-darn food we enjoy, every drink we love to drink. Pleasure be gone!
But Dr. Ernest Curtis says not so fast. He takes a look at what some of these landmark studies really say. Some of it might surprise you.
First, Dr. Curtis orients the reader to heart disease and the underlying nemesis - the deadly plaque formation in coronary arteries. Straight off he made me sit up and take notice. Being in the medical field, it has been drummed into my head that somehow that stealthy little molecule (cholesterol) seeps into coronary artery walls and wreaks havoc. Not so, the good doctor claims. Plaque formation and its subsequent destabilization is a process that, while not completely understood, has little to do with cholesterol. Cholesterol seems to be just an innocent bystander. Who'd a thought?

I am 65 years old and have a total cholesterol level of approximately 300 since they started the "numbers" game , and have no other health issues.

In Dr. Curtis' gently informative manner he describes the etiology of plaque formation as being within the walls of arteries and not as deposits in the lumen of arteries - the apparent reason for diets to reduce the amount of cholesterol consumed and thus reduce the amount available to further deposit on the linings of arteries. He backs up his statements by revisiting old articles and discussing new data about cholesterol that somehow has been buried in the climbing use of the various forms of anti-cholesterol drugs - the statins.Read more ›
