Cholesterol and Heart Disease – NOT!

Spacefill model of the Cholesterol moleculeBy the way, following on from that story, if you’d like to read some “contrary views,” on cholesterol and heart disease, read:

-Bryan Hubbard in What Doctors Don’t Tell You magazine
-The Great Cholesterol Con by Dr Malcolm Kendrick
-The Cholesterol Myths: Exposing the Fallacy That Saturated Fat and Cholesterol Cause Heart Disease by Uffe Ravnskov
-The Heart Revolution: The Extraordinary Discovery That Finally Laid the Cholesterol Myth To Rest by Dr. Kilmer and S. McCully

And so on.

Check Amazon for these books and find quotes like:

“Dr Ravnskov does an admirable job of demolishing the oft-cited theory that cholesterol and saturated fat cause heart disease (the so-called ‘diet-heart’ idea).”

“In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Kilmer S. McCully explains what is really behind the epidemic of heart disease. For many years, clogged arteries have been inaccurately viewed as the cause, rather than a symptom, of heart disease. Now, McCully shows you how to cut your risk of heart disease by controlling the real culprit, homocysteine.”

“The notion that cholesterol causes heart disease is one of the most deeply ingrained beliefs in health promotion today. In this revealing book, Paul Dugliss, M.D. and Sandra Fernandez, M.S.P.H. explain why the emphasis on cholesterol is misplaced.”

I think that heart disease is most likely due, mainly, to a combination of any of these factors: high homocysteine in the blood, high inflammation (which can be checked identified by blood levels of c-reactive protein CRP) and stress.
