Authors Dr Jonny Bowden and Dr Stephen Sinatra were interviewed as part of the controversial 2 part ABC Catalyst program – The Heart of the Matter. According to Dr Jonny Bowden – "When you look at the data, it’s very clear – everything that we have been told about saturated fat and cholesterol is a bold-faced lie." Dr Stephen Sinatra says – "cholesterol is found at the scene of the crime, it’s not the perpetrator. And where I sit now, as a cardiologist, practising cardiology for over four decades, it’s very low down on my list of risk factors." The Great Cholesterol Myth 9781592335909 is available now and The Great Cholesterol Cookbook 9781592335909 will be released shortly. Available for pre-order.
