So it’s true that a high fat diet lowers your risk for heart attack. I don’t believe she’s done enough research because statements like dr. Atkins died from a heart attack heart totally untrue he died from a head injury from falling on ice.
I believe Atkins was on to something but he had the protein to high. “The art and science of Low-Carb living” is a much better book on how to reverse inflammation and heart disease
Before you submit to a statin prescription, listen to this book (or any of the many others like it). It isn't an alarmist, tin-foil hat book, but one that presents the research, including the results that the drug companies may have played down or omitted in their desire to push their pills into the multi-billion-dollar market. The information presented here is especially relevant to women, since we women react differently to statins than men do and also have different CVD risks. I thought the author was very fair in presenting the facts. There are some situations in which statins are appropriate; however, to hand them out like candy to a wide variety of patients is dangerous, and the author clearly explains why this is so and how serious the side effects can be. She also explains how the baselines for cholesterol levels were established and what factors need to be considered in your decision to go on statins or not. Excellent book that everyone should read in this day and age of pill pushing.
