The Cholesterol Myth: Dietary Villains and Cholesterol Drug War.

November 1, 2013 - 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.

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.
