5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic information 16 Nov 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In this controversial, eye-opening book Kauffman provides the scientific facts to reveal the lies coming from the medical community, drug companies, the Food and Drug Administration, the American Medical Association, the United States Department of Agriculture, and even the National Institute of Health.

This eye-opening expose shatters many common and deeply ingrained health myths. Kauffman explains how these myths are born and how they are kept thriving by favourably designed and selectively cited research (by cheating, in other words). Dr. Kauffman is from that old scientific school where data and studies must be examined in detail rather than taking the words of the drug-representative educated medical world, or from those in the business of promoting their own commercial products, from inflammatory vegetable oils to fluoride toothpaste for all.

If you are 'placed on' cholesterol or blood pressure drugs or are facing chemotherapy, if your doctor recommends diet or exercise, this book will give you the perspective you need to help you make your own informed choices. If you believe mammograms and prostate testing or fluoride in your water are established health benefits, you will benefit from this book.

We all need to be aware of these things to protect ourselves and our loved ones from the ignorance that pervades our society regarding common medical claims. Malignant Medical Myths shreds the following medical myths put forth by health and medical "experts":

1. Taking an aspirin a day will make you live longer.
2. Low-carb diets are unsafe and don't work for weight loss.
3. Using statin drugs to lower cholesterol will improve health.
4. People over 50 should take medicine for hypertension. [see below for more on this]

5.0 out of 5 stars Medical eye-opener 26 April 2009
I bought this book out of curiosity. Probably it was the slightly un-British title that attracted me, plus the reviews elsewhere.

This book is an incredible eye-opener to both the nonsense often pedalled in doctors' sugeries and the hold that the Drugs industry appears to have over the NHS and Government.

It is such a good and challenging read that I feel it really is a must-have if you're interested in the effect upon your body of government targets and the drugs pushed at us by doctors in order to tick the target boxes.

Many others (such as Dr Malcolm Kendrick and Prof Uffe Ravnskov) have written on the cholesterol and statin cult - see the Kendrick videos on YouTube) and Prof Kauffman's chapter on that is a good place to start. Another good place to start is the chapter on hypertension (high blood pressure).

A challenging read with dozens of references to papers and studies, this book rewards your persistence in reading about each of the Myths.

Fantastic book worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why aren't we told this stuff? 25 Oct 2009
Admittedly this isn't your average easy read, but I loved it. It is horrific to think we are being hoodwinked into all of these money making investigations that have such huge impacts on our welbeing, both mental and physical. If you are of the age where mammograms are being offered, read it. If you are of the age where you are being checked for prostate cancer, read it. Not to mention heart disease, taking aspirin, exercise, flouride, low carb diets. Very informative but it does have lots and lots of technical stuff in that may put some people off.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting 22 Mar 2011
A well written and easily read book that could be beneficial to those without knowledge of the fissures of the medical and pharmaceutical industries or the machinations of the New World Order. Regretfully, its information is not entirely current but this is a minor criticism. The only awkward feature of the book is its large size.

1.0 out of 5 stars get a life! 11 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
i purchased this book for my mother who in her own words is "easily influenced"

after having read the reviews i went straight to the chapter on exercise
as a gymnast and ex 10k runner i was amused to see rowing listed as 'mild exercise' and NOT strenuous lol
i'm english, you might want to ask sir steve redgrave or andrew marr on their opinion about that

my advice statistically

if you leave your car sitting in the driveway you are less likely to have an accident!

generally some exercise is better than no exercise

life is a treadmill; in order to stay as 'fit' as you are today for tomorrow you MUST keep moving
