In this brilliant new synthesis of the true cause of heart disease, independent investigator Dr. Uffe Ravnskov explains how dangerous plaques in the arteries are created by microbial infections, the lipoprotein immune system, and multiple risk factors such as smoking, hypertension, stress, diabetes, kidney failure and elevated blood homocysteine levels. Written with incisive, comprehensive, and devastating logic, Ravnskov systematically demolishes the cholesterol myth by a detailed analysis of the results of research by investigators world-wide. This analysis explains the fallacies of the cholesterol hypothesis and why pharmaceutical companies and the food industry have profited handsomely from this outmoded and disproved theory. The reader of this clearly written and important book will be able to use this new understanding of the real cause of heart disease for successful treatment and prevention.

Uffe Ravnskov has been the most persistent and effective voice informing the public about diet dogma for the past 20 years. His very readable earlier book, The Cholesterol Myths may never have been a best seller, even at $20, but used copies have recently sold for $200-300. Dr.Ravnskov has also informed the medical and nutritional professions about the lack of evidence for their half-century condemnations of eating saturated fat and cholesterol by publishing reviews, papers and letters in major journals such as the Journal of the American Medical Association, the British Medical Journal, the Quarterly Journal of Medicine, The Lancet, Annals of Internal Medicine, Nutrition and Metabolism and others. He also founded The International Network of Cholesterol Skeptics ( which now has 80 highly qualified official members.

Dr. Ravnskov is a living example of an ideal physician and medical scientist — one who is utterly honest. He relies on original sources, interprets them accurately, and does not stray from actual evidence in trials and studies. You can trust this book to learn the causes and non causes of cardiovascular disease.

Numerous influences have been linked to increased risk for coronary disease, including a deep earlobe crease, premature vertex baldness and living in Eastern Finland or Glasgow. The most egregious factoid is the erroneous belief that heart attacks result from an elevated blood cholesterol that is due primarily to increased fat consumption. This myth has been perpetrated and perpetuated by the cholesterol cartel of low fat food and lipid lowering drug manufacturers, as well as prestigious organizations and physicians that are the recipients of their largesse. However, if you repeat a lie often enough and long enough, people will believe it and it eventually becomes the truth. As Ravnskov convincingly demonstrates, no scientific studies support the cardioprotective benefits of lowering cholesterol and saturated fat intake, and those that purportedly demonstrate such rewards are seriously flawed. Such efforts are not only ineffective, but are also harmful, especially in the elderly. Association never proves causation and more plausible contributors to coronary disease are discussed, including an exciting new theory that posits an infectious etiology.
