Dr. OZ on Cholesterol


 

It’s not often that I bring you videos from America’s favorite doc, Dr. Oz, but this clip from a recent episode is definitely worth watching. I don’t have anything against him, I just find that his show caters to a more mainstream approach to health.  In this video clip, he talks to Stephen Sinatra and Johnny Bowden, authors of The Great Cholesterol Myth: Why Lowering Cholesterol Won’t Prevent Heart Disease-And the Statin-Free Plan That Will, a controversial new book that challenges everything we thought we knew about cholesterol. 

In this episode, Dr Oz, Dr. Sinatra and Johnny Bowden, PhD, discuss:

  • How previous research on cholesterol may have been flawed
  • The various types of cholesterol and their role in the body 
  • What you should know about your cholesterol numbers 
  • Some of the negative effects of Statins (cholesterol-lowering drugs)
  • How high sugar intake can impact cardiovascular health
