Millions of people in the UK may want to ditch statins, along with the currently recommended low-fat products and starches, if they want to beat heart disease. That’s what experts Dr. Aseem Malhotra and Professor Dame Sue Bailey write in a new manifesto:
Here was a man who suffered a heart attack after following what we now know to be unscientific government dietary advice but made an informed decision to dramatically change his diet and stop the cocktail of drugs he was prescribed after suffering debilitating side-effects. Now his health has never been better. We have to keep reminding ourselves that good health rarely comes out of a medicine bottle.
