Statin Nation II: What Really Causes Heart Disease? (2015)

Available worldwide

Did you know that many countries around the world consume large amounts of saturated fat and cholesterol, yet also have an extremely low rate of heart disease? Or that people with high cholesterol are the ones who usually live the longest? These, and many other contradictions to the current view of heart disease are investigated in Statin Nation II.

The film is in three parts. Part 1 explains how health authorities around the world have continued to ignore the huge amount of data suggesting that saturated fat and cholesterol do not play a causal role in heart disease. Part 2 examines the current system of using risk factors for disease prevention - which of these risk factors are correct, and can a person be reduced to a short list of numbers? Part 3 moves beyond the system currently used and investigates the real causes of heart disease - proposing for the first time, an alternative model for thinking about the disease.

If anyone is seriously interested about this subject , 3 books are highly suggested . Know Your Fats, by Mary Enig. A scientist who had her own research team, the book is about her research on fats, saturated fat, and cholesterol.and things she overheard at a convention of how the cholesterol levels were set. The other 2 books, both entitled The Great Cholesterol Con. The sub titles are different. By an American and be an Englishman, both pretty much the Sam and still they compliment each other.
