The diet-heart-cholesterol connection is fiction. It has thrived in the consciousness of people with the nourishment of forces in the fund-raising community, academia, the government, and the food industry. The motive for maintaining this hoax? Profit! So says Sheldon Zerden, who has seen the myth continue unabated with billions of dollars a year in business. He says that the whole heart-health industry has led sane men of science astray and has compromised the lives of almost everyone. He says that if the truth were admitted, this profit machine would go up in flames and take the food and pharmaceutical industries with it. The Cholesterol Hoax reveals the biggest medical scam of the century -- maybe the biggest scam of all time. It has mushroomed into a trillion dollar business which has compromised the lives of almost everyone.
