The Great Cholesterol Myth: Why Lowering Your Cholesterol Won’t Prevent Heart Disease
 

Heart disease is the #1 killer. However, traditional heart disease protocols have gotten it all wrong. Science is showing that cholesterol and saturated fat are not a direct path to heart disease – and that the standard prescription of low-fat diets and statin drugs are contributing to a health crisis of monumental proportions.

The Great Cholesterol Myth reveals the shoddy science, manipulated research, and corporate greed that has perpetuated the myth and displays the true culprits of heart disease – including sugar (not fat), inflammation, stress, and high-carb diets full of processed foods.
 
Cholesterol and saturated fat are not major causes of heart disease but inflammation, oxidation, sugar, and stress are - especially sugar (due to glycation), processed carbs, oh, and sugar.
 
Low-fat diets and statin drugs are contributing to a mammoth health crisis.
 
Research shows that sub-optimal vitamin D contributes to heart disease, cancer and poor immunological function.
 
Other good stuff for the heart includes CoQ10, magnesium, niacin, vitamin C, curcumin, resveratrol.
 
The low-fat diet is the result of political lobbying (by the sugar industry), not science.

A Statin Nation: Damaging Millions in a Brave New Post-health World
 
If you have been told that you must take statins or risk a devastating heart attack or stroke, you need to read this book. Dr Kendrick, a well-known statin sceptic and author of the bestselling The Great Cholesterol Con, has returned to the diet-heart-cholesterol battlefield to warn that people are being conned.
 
In relaxed and humorous style, he lifts the rock to allow the reader to peer underneath. He points out that statins, even in high-risk individuals, increase life expectancy by a mere four days after five years of treatment. Yet adverse effects have been swept under the carpet by researchers who are closely tied to the industry.
 
The way to avoid heart disease, and strokes, is simple - but, as this riveting book shows, it has nothing to do with lowering cholesterol levels.

The Clot Thickens

DR. Malcolm Kendrick
“Malcolm Kendrick's masterly survey of the enduring mystery of heart disease reads like a detective story. With great verve he marshals the evidence for the two main contending theories, exonerates the presumed suspect and makes a formidable case for thrombogenesis (blood clotting) as the perpetrator. Witty, provocative and entertaining, 'The Clot Thickens' packs a powerful scientific punch. Highly recommended.” Dr James Le Fanu
Doctor, journalist, author of ‘ The Rise and Fall of Modern Medicine .’
 
“Malcolm Kendrick's new book brings to mind the quote from Thomas Huxley when he first learned of Darwin's theory of evolution: ‘how extremely stupid (of me) not to have thought of that’. What Kendrick presents is nothing less than a unifying theory of heart disease, that explains why everything from sickle cell disease to diabetes to a stressful lifestyle increases cardiovascular risk (and he does it with a large dollop of humour). After decades stuck in the blind alley that is the LDL hypothesis, this book is a revelation. It should be read by anyone with even a slight interest in understanding heart disease and what they can do to protect themselves from it.”  Dr Sebastian Rushworth, M.D. Sweden
 
 
This is a 150-year detective story with a cast of unrecognised heroes who may, finally, become known for their work on the true causes of heart disease. Exploring the truth about cholesterol - the apparently tried, and convicted, cause of millions of deaths from heart disease - with billions spent each year on lowering cholesterol with diet and drugs.
 

Is it possible that our villain was simply left holding the gun whilst the true culprits ran and hid? Have they escaped our clutches?
 

Dr Kendrick also introduces us to a range of other lesser known characters in this tale of selective reporting, data manipulation and intrigue. The true story of heart disease is out there, and the evidence has been brought together here - a scientific mystery for our time that is ready to unfold.
