This review is from: The Great Cholesterol Myth: Why Lowering Your Cholesterol Won't Prevent Heart Disease-and the Statin-Free Plan That Will (Paperback)
Let me start by saying that as a certified nutrition coach and personal trainer, I've studied this subject extensively. Name any of the main books out on the subject and I've read them. In my opinion "Good Calories, Bad Calories" (GCBC) is the go-to source if you want an idea of the history of how we came to view certain foods bad and the history of cholesterol testing. In fact, it should be required reading for anyone in the health field (doctors included).

So, when I bought this book, after reading and listening to Dr. Bowden for years, and taking into account the subject, I just figured it would be another one to add to my library to support those that "get it". Maybe pick a few good tidbits up.

I'm 3/4 way through the book (supplement section) and I just had to write a review now. This book is right up there with "GCBC" and in some ways, far beyond. In the sense that GCBC can be a heavy dense read and maybe even boring for a lot of people. "The Great Cholesterol Myth" is written in a way that will make things click for the average reader, yet still give plenty of insight and a ton of references for those looking to expand their knowledge on the subject.

Love the book and thanks for trying to share what I feel is the right message that if it sinks in, can really change the health of our nation. After-all, fearing real foods (beef, eggs, butter, coconut oil, etc) is really what got us into this mess.
