The Truth About Statins:
Risks and Alternatives to Cholesterol Lowering Drugs

Written by Barbara Roberts, MD


Despite the rosy picture painted in the ads of a miracle cure for high cholesterol and its attendant heart disease, the reality of taking statins may be far less pretty. Dr. Barbara H. Roberts, director of the Women’s Cardiac Center at the Miriam Hospital in Rhode Island, discusses both the benefits and health risks of these popular drugs in this comprehensive guide that finally reveals the questionable science behind the research studies. This honest, patient-friendly appraisal of the most widely used medications in the world may shock you, but it may also save your life.

Offering clear-cut, easy-to-understand information in an easily accessible fashion, Dr. Roberts explains how to take the best possible care of your heart, including:

* The keys to maintaining cardiovascular well-being
* How to interpret your cholesterol numbers
* The frightening adverse effects of popular drugs



It is time to take charge of your heart health. Learn the facts behind the hype so that you can make informed decisions on a subject vital to your continued health. If you or someone you love either takes a statin or is considering doing so, you need to read this book.

 Includes recipes for a delicious and heart-healthy diet, including Wasabi-Roasted Salmon, Pasta with Avocado Sauce, and Lemon-Pineapple Breakfast Muffins.

Malignant Medical Myths: Why Medical Treatment Causes 200,000 Deaths in the USA Each Year…

Written by Joel M. Kauffman, Ph.D.
"Cholesterol is always present in our blood, and is necessary for life as an essential component of membranes, of nerve junctions, and of brain function (Mauch et al., 2001), and as a source of hormones."

"There was never satisfactory evidence that lowering TC or LDL in most people would be of the slightest benefit. While a correlation does not necessarily prove a cause, a lack of correlation necessarily proves a lack of cause. Pretending otherwise is the scam."

Heart Frauds - Uncovering the Biggest Health Scam in History

Written by Charles T McGee, MD
The title of his book arises from his insistence that more than 80 percent of angiograms and heart bypass surgeries are unnecessary. He also argues that cholesterol isn't as major a factor in provoking heart attacks as it is made out to be, and that advertising and greed are among the main forces driving many drug companies and much of medical practice to say that it is.
