British cholesterol skeptic, author and documentary filmmaker Justin Smith is our guest today in Episode 611 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!
Fans of this podcast have long known about the lies we've been told about the role of cholesterol in heart disease. Conventional wisdom tells us that the higher your total cholesterol, the greater risk you have of getting a heart attack and developing atherosclerosis. Therefore, pharmaceutical companies argue, higher lipid levels require medications like statin drugs to bring them down to "safe" levels. HOGWASH!
You may recall hearing Justin Smith on this podcast previously
438 discussing his book $29 Billion Reasons
to Lie About Cholesterol: Making Profit By Turning Healthy People
Into Patients. But he was ready to take the message from
his book and bring it to life in a documentary film as he shared
with us in Episode
504 in late 2011. Thus was birthed a documentary that is
now available to the public called $TATIN NATION. You can
download $TATIN NATION for streaming rental
RIGHT NOW below:
We were very honored to have this podcast recognized with a "Special Thanks" in the closing credits of the documentary:
Featuring lots of bona fide experts on cholesterol and statins that have been featured previously on "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show" podcast (including Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, Dr. Barry Groves, Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride and Dr. Uffe Ravnskov), $TATIN NATION is an engaging, fast-paced and informative just over hour-long documentary that will keep you captivated from start to finish. Listen in as Jimmy speaks with Justin about his film, what he is hoping to communicate through it and his best hopes and dreams for the project. ENJOY!
