    Dr. Uffe Ravnskov reviews: Cholesterol is human’s best friend

    Post by graham64 on Sun Nov 04 2018, 21:36

    In 2016 Dr. Uffe Ravnskov and his team published a review in BMJ of 19 studies where the authors had followed more than 68,000 elderly people for several years after having measured their `bad` LDL-cholesterol. None of them found that LDL-cholesterol was bad; in fact, those with the highest values lived the longest; even longer than those on statin treatment

    n more than a hundred newspapers and magazines all over the world, many statin advocates criticized our paper, but none of them was able to point at a study with the opposite result. Instead, three large industry-sponsored reviews were published, whose authors presented ´solid evidence´ for the benefits of statins.

    It was easy for us to see that their evidence was far from solid. In a paper entitled LDL-C does not cause cardiovascular disease: a comprehensive review of the current literature published in Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology, we have presented the many ways by which the authors of the three reviews have mislead the world for many decades by misuse of statistics and by ignoring the many contradictory reports from independent researchers. In the following, we shall mention the many assertions that have made the lipid hypothesis to the greatest and costliest medical scam ever.

    Oh but he's a CHOLESTEROL DENIER! He is killing people!!! It must be true, it says so in the Guardian

    https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2018/oct/30/butter-nonsense-the-rise-of-the-cholesterol-deniers

    This got ripped to shreds on Twitter, unsurprisingly

    I actually LIKE articles like this, and the coconut oil will kill you stone dead!!! video, and the AHA Presidential Advisory, because they smack of desperation to reinforce their dogma in the face of a tsunami of science. They really believe this crap will do the job.

    I see the Guardian article does not accept comments wonder why  Evil or Very Mad seeing only those promoting statins and anti sat fat views were allowed their say why not at least allow comments from those with opposing views
