Publisher's Summary

Statins are among the most widely prescribed drugs in the world. Yet many report unacceptable side effects, and a US survey revealed that 75 per cent of respondents stopped taking them within a year.

So what is the evidence for their benefits? Dr Aseem Malhotra, author of the best-selling The 21-Day Immunity Plan and co-author of the best-selling The Pioppi Diet, examines the claims for statins and their role in lowering cholesterol and preventing heart disease. He introduces us to his targeted heart-health plan, which, with a diet plan, recipes and advice on reducing stress and increasing movement, can help us to live statin-free and take control of our own health.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A must read, even for those not on statins!

This is an amazing and thorough book that is succinct and to the point and therefore perfect to give to family and friends who need to have this type of information. I really think it is a must read even for those who do not yet have concerns over heart problems, because it outlines the type of life you need to lead for metabolic health.

It works and is shocking that it’s not standard

I adopted a Low Carb diet after being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol. Statins and Metaformin for life the doctors said, I chose to research an alternative path.
From 102.5 kg to 85kg in a little over a year cholesterol sorted and type 2 reversed and no exercise ( need to improve here).
I recently had a CAC test and was given a heart age of less than 30years old. I’m 54 in August. No medication just diet, meat, cream, butter, all the stuff they tell you not to eat. Zero carbs, zero sugar - Keto is the way…
