Lower Cholesterol Health on TV Current News
On the Dr. Oz Show, health experts tell viewers that being on statin drugs is one of the biggest flaws in medicine for treating high cholesterol and that the latest cholesterol test you need is one that your doctor should be evaluating your cholesterol levels with rather than traditional HDL/LDL cholesterol tests.
“Are the traditional cholesterol tests that we do even relevant?” asks Dr. Oz as he introduces doctors Stephen Sinatra and Jonny Bowden authors of the controversial book “The Great Cholesterol Myth: Why Lowering Your Cholesterol Won’t Prevent Heart Disease – And The Statin-Free Plan That Will,” who both say that cholesterol is not that cause of heart disease and that people with high cholesterol live longer than people with low cholesterol.
“Everything that the medical community believes about cholesterol is wrong,” states Dr. Bowden.
