A Statin Nation: Damaging Millions in a Brave New Post-health World (Paperback)
A well-known statin skeptic and author returns to the diet-heart cholesterol battlefield to warn that we are all being conned. The entire "cholesterol hypothesis" was described many years ago as "the greatest scam in the history of medicine" by one of the key players involved in setting up the hugely influential Framingham Study. Statins have been promoted for years as wonder drugs not only for heart disease, but for other conditions too. As heart disease and stroke are the second and third biggest killers in this country, this book is perfect for anyone concerned about their health—and anyone concerned about the power of the pharmaceutical industry, and its ability to conceal vital facts.
