I love Malcomb Kendrick's blog

https://drmalcolmkendrick.org

It's informative and the comments are excellent.

It's surprising to me that someone would go to all the trouble of trying to delete his WikiPedia page. At least they can't touch his blog.

I have his book! There is another book with the same title. It's a more detailed somewhat harder read but corroborates.

Another guy selling a book. I've read plenty of books including the book in question. I'm sure they are right. I mean they wouldn't lie to me just to make a buck would they?

Call me a skeptic of the skeptics.

But then again, they do have "studies" showing their opinion is right.

I am thinking of increasing my sat-fat intake even more and seeing where it goes. And I mean upping the beef and overall animal products (except milk. Pleah!)
Saturated fat does not cause heart disease. That is a myth. Here is a recent paper by Zoe Harcombe that discusses why the whole "saturated fat is bad" myth was based on bad science (or no science):

Saturated fat does not cause heart disease Zo Harcombe

Also, blood cholesterol level is a pretty worthless indicator of heart health and heart attack risk. The drug companies (and most doctors, who are heavily influenced by the drug companies) continue to harp on getting your cholesterol level down, because statins reduce cholesterol, and statins are the biggest money-making drug that Big Pharma has. So, you might be able to reduce your cholesterol by taking a statin, but you probably won't reduce your heart disease risk one bit. Plus, many statin users experience some pretty nasty side effects.

Chris Kresser has written a very good 4-part series on saturated fat, cholesterol, and heart health, that is worth reading. You can find it here:

Ha, that's been the whole thrust of this thread. Who's really got the goods? Regarding the OTHER book called "The Great Cholesterol Con". The reason why I found it a harder read was because of all the data. It's not written by a doctor, just an author doing a book. He didn't invent or create data. He's just using what's already there.

PS: Back when I was seeing cardiologists non of them brought up blood tests or cholesterol levels. But my GP? Always!
