Dr. Malcolm Kendrick: The Cholesterol Leads To Heart Disease Theory Is Bunk

Filed under: Health — @ June 18, 2009

Dr. Malcolm Kendrick says the cholesterol/heart hypothesis is bunk!

Eating saturated fat and cholesterol is unhealthy for you because they clog your arteries, raise your cholesterol levels, and lead to heart attacks, cardiovascular disease and death. Or so we’ve been told. This cholesterol/heart health theory that has been floating around out there ever since Ancel Keys proposed the theory decades ago that started the whole low-fat diet movement in earnest. Tom Naughton brilliantly illustrated this in his 2008 documentary film FAT HEAD.

In Episode 263 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we are privileged to hear from UK-based physician and bestselling author Dr. Malcolm Kendrick who wrote a groundbreaking book entitled The Great Cholesterol Con: The Truth About What Really Causes Heart Disease and How to Avoid It. He has committed himself to exposing the scam that is the cholesterol/heart hypothesis because he knows better based on the evidence.

Hear Dr. Kendrick talk about how he got involved in this issue, why he decided to become such a vocal opponent of the conventional theory behind cholesterol and heart health, the problem with taking statin drugs and why women should NEVER take them, the history behind how fat and cholesterol got vilified, the negative role carbohydrates play in obesity and diabetes, his personal reaction to Gary Taubes’ Good Calories, Bad Calories, what it’s gonna take to alter the incorrect thinking about cholesterol and heart health, and so much more! This is one man who knows and understands what is REALLY happening as it relates to heart health–and it’s NOT the cholesterol or saturated fat either.
