The Great Cholesterol Con

Click here to order.

This new book is by "The Omnivore" creator, Anthony Colpo. From "The Omnivore" website:-

1) There has not been a single tightly-controlled clinical trial that has produced any reduction in CHD mortality that can honestly be attributed to saturated fat restriction or cholesterol-lowering?

2) Long-term follow-up studies have shown that those with the lowest cholesterol levels tend to live the shortest lives?

3) So-called heart-healthy polyunsaturated vegetable oils have been linked to cancer and heart disease?

4) Cholesterol-lowering drugs have not been shown to provide any clear longevity benefit to women, the elderly, or men free of existing heart disease?

5) In Japan, where low-fat diets supposedly protect people from cardiovascular disease, it is actually those who eat the most saturated fat that have the lowest rates of stroke?

6) There is no clinical evidence that eating more whole-grains will reduce your risk of heart disease or colon cancer?

7) Vegetarians do not live longer than people eating a typical mixed diet?

8) Low fat diets, rather than boosting health, actually restrict your intake of important fat-soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids?

9) Most of the information disseminated by health authorities today is designed not to protect your health, but to benefit vested financial interests?

The Great Cholesterol Con is the most informative, well thought out, heavily researched and accurately stated book that I have had the pleasure of reading in a very long time. An easy to read compilation of data that challenges just about everything we've been taught about health and nutrition with the research to back it up! An absolute must read for anyone who has ever wanted to know the truth and perhaps even suspected that a good portion of what we've been told all of these years may in fact be incorrect!!! Not only does Anthony Colpo uncover the outrageous lies that we have all been led to believe but he gives you comprehensive ways to improve your health and begin again. It's never too late to start healing. I highly recommend this book and commend the author on his wonderful work and effort as well as his undying search for the truth and of course for having the courage to make sure the information is finally available to the public!
