The Cholesterol Myths,
This review is from: The Cholesterol Myths: Exposing the Fallacy That Cholesterol and Saturated Fat Cause Heart Disease (Hardcover)
This is a well written book which explains the subject in an uncomplicated manner and is easy for the layman to understand. It reveals some astonishing cover-ups made by researchers to falsify results in order to keep alive the myth that saturated fat causes heart disease.

This is possibly the most important book anyone could read in their life, but why is it so expensive? I can't help thinking that there must be some kind of commercial pressure at work here. I can't imagine how this would work, but is seems obvious to me that where there is a huge amount of money at stake (I am talking about the low-fat industry now), then all kinds of devious things can happen. It makes sense to take this book very seriously for this very reason. Ten years ago this was the first book to properly address the idea that we have all been hoodwinked for the last 50 years, now there are a dozen or so books on the same subject. The message is finally getting across; albeit slowly, as there are still a very large percentage of people who don't actually read books and rely on TV, newspapers and magazines. Seems like it really is possible to die of stupidity!
