Dr. Leon and his wife Alkmini Chaitow have presented a wonderful book about cholesterol. This book will permit both the clinician and the patient who suffers from abnormal cholesterol blood tests to take charge of this issue and defend themselves from the causes of heart disease.

Elevated cholesterol levels have been indicted as a major cause of coronary heart disease, the most common cause of heart attack. Cholesterol's role in this condition, and the proper management of it, is one that engenders considerable controversy in health care. This is reasonable when one considers that people react differently to the same diet, i.e., every person has "biochemical individuality."

The Chaitows have brought tremendous insight and clarity to a complicated, and controversial, subject. Cardiovascular disease is probably not a disease of cholesterol, but inflammation. Cholesterol is actually protective, made by your own body, and when your cholesterol levels become too low, you literally cannot produce many of the other hormones that your body needs for health. Cholesterol even contributes to long life and increases our resistance to infections and cancer. You need cholesterol for the functioning of your brain and nerves, for the production of adrenal and sex hormones, and for the synthesis of vitamin D. If it were so harmful, why would your liver make 85 percent of the total amount of cholesterol in your body?

The maximum normal level of cholesterol in 1984 was 330. Apparently back then it was recognized that cholesterol levels naturally rise with age. Three years later, in 1987, the first statin drug came out, but it didn't sell well.
