fried egg in a pan, the cholesterol myth

Why I Wrote The Great Cholesterol Myth

However, over the past 40 years, through experience with my patients, as well as published scientific data, I’ve learned that this tenet of modern medicine is really a myth: cholesterol is not the culprit behind heart disease, inflammation is, and inflammation is what we need to prevent.

As mentioned in this video, nutritionist Jonny Bowden, PhD and I wrote The Great Cholesterol Myth to help clarify the cholesterol issue and help people learn about the real causes of heart disease.

    Dr. Sinatra,
    Your website has been a fabulous data point for us. We live by our own 85/15 WOE. We eat 85% healthy low pesticide, low glycemic veggies, and 15% animal proteins and not so good for us indulgences. We get 30-40 minutes of treadmill time 360 days a year. We are responsible for controlling what risk factors we can. We find your website to be a great tutorial and we really appreciate the money and effort you have put in it.

    It’s too easy to use supplements, instead of doing the hard work (like self discipline) to get and stay healthy. Getting health advice from a retail *”health counselor” is very popular in our area. Scary stuff. Thank you for this website. We’re watching every video and reading every article. Just got your book.
