Well, talking about bucking the system!! Ernest N. Curtis, M.D. comes along and dares to contradict the current thought that cholesterol is going to kill us all. The Cholesterol Delusion is a very interesting report on one of the top medical drug-types being prescribed today. The author takes the time to break down the science into language the non-medical public can understand. He also includes a section on how to make sense of a medical journal report, and several journal reports are included in the book.
Dr. Curtis’ description of what really happens with a blocked artery is far different than those cute little commercials that the drug company runs explaining how all those little particles are choking my heart! It is shocking to find out how the testing is evaluated when little evidence shows the results the drug companies report.
I am not quite ready to pitch my statin drugs, but I am ready to do some more research to on the subject. I confess that upon finishing the book I made myself a breakfast of bacon and eggs! I would recommend The Cholesterol Delusion to anyone taking any type of maintenance or preventative prescription drugs.
