Book Review: The Great Cholesterol Con - Dr Malcolm Kendrick
Spends the first two chapters explaining what is heart disease and what is fat and cholesterol.
Chapters 3-7, Dr Kendrick destroys the cholesterol hypothesis and all other ad-hoc hypothesis that came with it.
Chapter 8, Dr Kendrick gives his full take on statins, the ok, the bad, and the ugly!!
Chapters 9-11. Dr. Kendrick gives his hypothesis on what he think is one of the main causes of heart disease. Stress. Which cause a dysfunctional hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA)axis.
Overall a great read. Dr Kendrick's humor throughout the book made it a very entertaining, and informative read.
I would highly recommend it!
