We have a great new health book at the office to help inform patients how to lower their cholesterol safely and expose the dietary cholesterol association to heart disease myth. It is called, “The Great Cholesterol Myth: Why Lowering Your Cholesterol Won’t Prevent Heart Disease and the Statin-Free Plan That Will”, by Jonny Bowden, PhD, CNS, and Stephen T. Sinatra, MD, FACC, Fair Winds Press; 2012.
For decades, the public ear has been relentlessly bombarded with the message that cholesterol is practically the only cause of heart disease. This book launches a counterattack against what they call “a weird admixture of misinformation, scientifically-questionable studies, corporate greed, and deceptive marketing” that has “conspired to create one of the most indestructible and damaging myths in medical history”.
They describe the cholesterol story as a massive medical con and teach alternative ways to lower cholesterol, prevent heart disease and live a healthy and long life. They say “putting all our attention on cholesterol, we’ve virtually ignored the real causes of heart disease: inflammation, oxidation, sugar, and stress”.
Come by the office to review the book, in our reception room’s library or buy the book your self for a blueprint to a healthier and longer life.
To your Optimal Health and Vitality with a Beautiful Smile.
Rev. Dr. Stephen A. Lawrence
