Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, author of The Great Cholesterol Con and the book Doctoring Data, wrote a terrific article summarizing his views on what causes cardiovascular disease, and what does not.
He explains why the LDL hypothesis of cardiovascular disease makes no sense.
He says, “The LDL hypothesis is nonsense, it is wrong, and it does not remotely fit with any other factors known to cause CVD [cardiovascular disease].”
He also explains why inflammation is not the cause of cardiovascular disease, and instead, it is simply part of the repair process (which is happening all the time).
Below are highlights from his article, but I encourage you to read the entire article, because it contains a lot more than just the highlights that I am including below.
