Eye opening documentary on cholesterol

I have posted this before as a post in other threads but I think it deserves it's own thread. I think it's important for people wondering about these things to see the other side of the story rather than just the drug company funded one.

So here we go, the controversial documentary from Australia which started some heated discussions. Certain groups actually dried to prevent it from being broadcasted but fortunately they did not succeed:

Quote:
Is the role of cholesterol in heart disease really one of the biggest myths in the history of medicine?

For the last four decades we’ve been told that saturated fat clogs our arteries and high cholesterol causes heart disease. It has spawned a multi-billion dollar drug and food industry of “cholesterol free” products promising to lower our cholesterol and decrease our risk of heart disease.

But what if it all isn’t true? What if it’s never been proven that saturated fat causes heart disease?

And what if the majority of patients taking cholesterol lowering drugs won’t benefit from taking these pills?

In a special two part edition of Catalyst, Dr Maryanne Demasi investigates the science behind the claims that saturated fat causes heart disease by raising cholesterol.
