Did you know? …that cholesterol is not a deadly poison, but a substance vital to the cells of all mammals? …that your body produces three to four times more choleste¬rol than you eat? …that this production increases when you eat only small amounts of cholesterol and decreases when you eat large amounts? …that heart patients haven't eaten more saturated fat than other people? …that stroke patients have eaten less? …that people with low cholesterol become just as atherosclerotic as people with high? …that high cholesterol is not a risk factor for women? …that high cholesterol is not a risk factor for people above age 65 although by far most heart attacks occur after that age? …that the effect on cholesterol of the low-fat diet is trivial at most? …that the only effective way to lower cholesterol is with drugs? …that many of the cholesterol-lowering drugs are dangerous to your health and may shorten your life? …that the new cholesterol-lowering drugs, called statins, do lower heart-disease mortality, but this is because of effects other than cholesterol lowering? Unfortunately, they also may destroy your muscles and your mind, make you impotent and produce cancer. …that most of these facts have been presented in scientific journals and books for decades but that propo¬nents of the diet-heart hypothesis never tell them to the public? …that the cholesterol campaign creates immense prosperity for resear¬chers, doctors, medical journals, drug producers and the food industry?
