It’s rare that I’m thankful for Dr. Oz. It’s not that I dislike him; I just don’t always agree with him. But he completely got it right this time!
He recently aired an episode highlighting the research published in the book The Great Cholesterol Myth: Why Lowering Your Cholesterol Won’t Prevent Heart Disease-and the Statin-Free Plan That Will.
In the show segment, he compacted the message I’ve been writing in blog post after blog post for the past few years into one succinct, visually-stimulating, and easy to understand explanation.
Watch the video below, then share it with all your friends and family! It will ROCK THEIR WORLD.
Thank you Dr. Oz, for getting the truth out there in the mainstream!
I’m honestly floored. In this little segment, they covered:
- How total cholesterol levels don’t matter!
- How statins are dangerous — particularly for women.
- How what really matters is the size of your cholesterol, not the kind.
- How high blood sugar levels can lead to arterial inflammation.
If you want to read more about the science behind all these conclusions, go check out The Great Cholesterol Myth by Johnny Bowden, PhD and Stephen Sinatra, MD. I read a review copy a few months ago, and I loved it!
