Diet delusions and what really causes heart disease
This is the second collection of articles from members of THINCS: The International Network of Cholesterol Sceptics. THINCS is a collection of over 100 medical and academic doctors who are united in one belief – that cholesterol does not cause heart disease. We have many (often different) views on what does cause heart disease, but the life vital substance, made by the body, called cholesterol. isn’t one of them.
In March 2019, the fifth King of Organs cardiovascular conference was hosted by Professor Alabdulgader and Professor Rosch and a number of THINCS’ members delivered presentations. This book is a collation of those presentations, covering many possible causes of heart disease from blood clots to infections and from stress to inflammation. The presentations also addressed saturated fat, the diet-heart hypothesis, cholesterol ‘wars’, statin trials and the global data on population cholesterol levels and mortality. This book will make you feel as if you were at the conference and didn’t miss a thing!
