Wow; what an eye-opener! This book should be required reading for EVERY American. Chapter by chapter, Ravnskov systematically proves that the government, major medical organizations (like the American Heart Association), and the media have been lying to the public for years regarding the "danger" of cholesterol. There is no proof that saturated fat raises blood cholesterol levels. There is no proof that dietary cholesterol raises blood cholesterol levels. There is no proof that high blood cholesterol contributes to heart disease. Don't believe me? Read the book! Data don't lie, but scientists do. In study after study, the results were warped, portions conveniently omitted, and/or summaries just plain invented to convince readers of what the scientists WANTED to see. (A quick comparison of the graphs on pages 73 and 79 will clearly illustrate this data manipulation.) If you really care about your health, you owe it to yourself to read this book.
