    One thought on “Ignore the Awkward.: How the Cholesterol Myths Are Kept Alive”

    1. Dr. Ravnskov sounds a great warning for anyone accused of having high cholesterol, and provides much needed information for making informed decisions. It takes a lot of guts to stand for the truth when the world at large maligns your efforts. We revere men like Galileo, Luther, and Abe Lincoln who risked their livelihood and even their lives for their beliefs, but we still pillory those who go against the grain today. Dr. Ravnskov shows great moral courage in standing up to the drug companies an [...]

    2. This is a relatively short book (154 pages in total), with quite a bit of information. It is not the first book on cholesterol myth I have read, therefore lot of the information was not new. Also, it feels like Dr Ravnskov needs a good editor. In a few places it gets a little difficult to understand the argument, although there are not many of those. I also don't like it when the author tells me that he will explain it in a later chapter. I would rather have the explanation there and than. Call [...]

    3. My biggest complaint with this book is that the author is Danish and the English translation is not the best. Consequently the slightly awkward sentences (no pun intended) that appear throughout the book doesn't put the author's professionalism in the best light. Still, in spite of this, I tend to believe and accept the author's claim that the scientific literature doesn't support the lipid hypothesis, i.e. that cholesterol contributes directly to heart disease. Ravnskov came to his conclusion b [...]

    4. Well-written and well-referenced book on the myths of saturated fat, cholesterol, and heart disease. If you don't believe it you should read this book or one of Ravnskov's other books or at least don't take those dangerous, cholesterol lowering statin drugs!. They may decrease your risk of heart disease, but increase your risk of cancer as well as other side effects such as muscle weakness, poor memory, and poorly functioning mitochondria (tired cells), just to mention a few. Heart disease is hy [...]

    5. Another good look at the Cholesterol Con we've all been living with for the past 30 years or so. The thing I like about Uffe's books is the depth he's gone to find the real facts. Plenty of references in his work for the sceptics to follow up.He's Scandinavian, so some of the translation is a little odd.

    6. Great information, especially on the dangers of statins. Lots of data and analysis on cholesterol and nutrition. The song excerpts at the beginning of each chapter seem out of place. At times the language is too casual and irreverent.

    7. if you've been reading a lot of articles / books about statin, the ideas in the book might no longer be new to you. i wish their discussion about their hypothesis about the cause of heart attacks to have more meat.

    8. Amazing! A recommendation to everybody that either "had a problem with blood lipids", or is of a medical background.

    9. How badly the medical profession got it wrong. How we all need to review what we eat if we are to live long and healthy lives.

    10. A bit on the technical side, but if you've been told that you have high cholesterol or Familial Hypercholesterolmenia, then you need to read this book.
