A statin nation: damaging millions in a brave new post-health world

A statin nation: damaging millions in a brave new post-health world

Kendrick, Malcolm, author

If you have been told that you must take statins or risk a devastating heart attack or stroke, you need to read this book. Dr Kendrick, a well-known statin sceptic and author of the bestselling 'The Great Cholesterol Con', has returned to the diet-heart-cholesterol battlefield to warn that people are being conned. In relaxed and humorous style, he lifts the rock to allow the reader to peer underneath. He points out that statins, even in high-risk individuals, increase life expectancy by a mere four days after five years of treatment. Yet adverse effects have been swept under the carpet by researchers who are closely tied to the industry. The way to avoid heart disease, and strokes, is simple - but, as this book shows, it has nothing to do with lowering cholesterol levels
