Fat and Cholesterol are GOOD for You! by Uffe Ravnskov



Do you know
…what REALLY causes heart disease?
…that heart patients haven’t eaten more saturated fat than other people and stroke patients have eaten less?
…that diabetics may be cured if they replace carbohydrates with saturated fat?
…that people with low cholesterol become just as atherosclerotic as people with high?
…that high cholesterol is not a risk factor for women or diabetics?
…that high cholesterol is not a risk factor for old people although by far most heart attacks occur after age 65?
…that old people with high cholesterol live longer than old people with low?
…that the lipoproteins protect us against infectious diseases and probably also against cancer? The author is a scientist himself and has published more than 80 papers and letters in the scientific press critical to the cholesterol campaign, for which he has won two international awards. In his new book, which includes updated and simplified sections from his previous one (The Cholesterol Myths), Ravnskov also presents his own idea about the cause of heart disease, an idea that explains all the findings that do not fit with the present view.
Did you know…that cholesterol is not a deadly poison, but a substance vital to the cells of all mammals? …that your body produces three to four times more cholesterol than you eat?
…that the internal production increases when you eat only small amounts of cholesterol and decreases when you eat large amounts?
…that heart patients haven’t eaten more saturated fat than other people?
…that stroke patients have eaten less?
…that people with low cholesterol become just as atherosclerotic as people with high?
…that high cholesterol is not a risk factor for women?
…that high cholesterol is not a risk factor for old people although by far most heart attacks occur after age 65?
…that many of the cholesterol-lowering drugs are dangerous to your health and may shorten your life?
…that the cholesterol campaign creates immense prosperity for researchers, doctors, medical journals, drug producers and the food industry?
