I recommend this book for the student and the layperson to better understand this small aspect of nutrition. Cholesterol is a poorly understood and often bullied nutrient and it's nice to see someone lay out a good defense.
Truly a remarkable book, well written, researched, and told with a dry wit that made me chuckle even as I vowed to make sure I never go on a statin.
into believing your well being depends on your cholesterol levels. It is unconscienable to think that
many docs have just bought into this because it is the prevailing dogma. These days it is critical to be informed, do your own investigation and question any number of medical recommendations. Sadly many very good doctors have been unduly influenced by the drug reps and outcome dictated, biased drug trials.
Dr. Kendrick presents the facts, comments (often with humor), and you decide. Doctoring Data, his newer book is really excellent.
All arguments are supported by analysis of a huge amount of reputable large scale long term medical studies, the data of which is available online for all to crosscheck! Dr Kendrick has a down to earth, pithy style of prose, made for enjoyable reading of what could be a very dry subject. I urge anyone taking statins or anyone being pressured by their Dr to take them, to read this book as a priority! It may save your life!
