Attention Bay Area HEALTHY SKEPTIC readers!
I am offering a free public talk next week in Berkeley, CA which debunks the myth that cholesterol causes heart disease. We’ll also explore the true causes of heart disease as well as simple dietary and lifestyle changes you can make to protect yourself and your loved ones. See below for details. Hope to see you there!

For over 50 years, the medical establishment has vigorously promoted the notion that high cholesterol is a primary risk factor for coronary heart disease, and that a diet high in saturated fat and cholesterol causes heart disease. These hypotheses are widely accepted as fact by physicians and the general public alike, despite the overwhelming body of evidence that suggests otherwise.
During this two-hour talk, we’ll review scientific studies demonstrating that:
- High cholesterol doesn’t cause heart disease
- Low cholesterol worsens your physical and mental health and increases your chances of dying prematurely
- Diets high in saturated fat and cholesterol don’t cause heart disease, but they do promote health and longevity
- Consumption of so-called “heart healthy” vegetable oils is linked to heart disease, cancer and many other conditions
You’ll also learn the latest theories on what causes heart disease and a truly “heart healthy” approach to diet and lifestyle that is supported by both modern science and centuries of traditional wisdom.
The presentation draws on more than 150 peer-reviewed studies published in major journals and the work of an impressive list of physicians, scientists and researchers who question the connection between cholesterol and heart disease.
