Danish physician, Dr. Uffe Ravnskov, has for years been at the forefront of the movement to de-demonize cholesterol. Not only has he written three popular books on the subject, he has published over a hundred articles in the medical and scientific literature and spoken at academic conferences the world over. In addition, he founded and runs THINCS, The International Network of Cholesterol Skeptics, an organization that includes physicians and scientists from around the globe.
Due to problems with the publisher of his first and, in my view, most comprehensive book on cholesterol, Dr. Ravnskov has provided it free of charge to anyone who wants it. The Cholesterol Myths is a thoroughly researched and referenced book on how cholesterol isn’t the monster most nutritional researchers seem to think it is. I was lucky enough to get a copy when it was first published and have read my a couple of times. And still dip into it here and there for a refresher when needed. Right now, used copies are for sale on Amazon for up to $170, but you can download your free copy here.
Also, you should take a look at Dr. Ravnskov’s other books, Fat and Cholesterol are Good For You! and Ignore the Awkward: How the Cholesterol Myths are Kept Alive. Both are terrific books, and I recommend them for the libraries of anyone serious about nutrition.
