Coronary Heart Disease: What the Experts Say
"In Framingham, Massachusetts, the more saturated fat one ate, the more cholesterol one ate, the more calories one ate, the lower people's serum cholesterol. . . we found that the people who ate the most cholesterol, ate the most saturated fat, ate the most calories weighed the least and were the most physically active."
--William Castelli, MD, Director, The Framingham Study
"The diet-heart hypothesis has been repeatedly shown to be wrong, and yet, for complicated reasons of pride, profit and prejudice, the hypothesis continues to be exploited by scientists, fund-raising enterprises, food companies and even governmental agencies. The public is being deceived by the greatest health scam of the century."
--George Mann, ScD, MD, Former Co-Director, The Framingham Study
"An analysis of cholesterol values . . . in 1,700 patients with atherosclerotic disease revealed no definite correlation between serum cholesterol levels and the nature and extent of atherosclerotic disease."
--Michael DeBakey, MD, Famous Heart Surgeon
"The relevant literature [on CHD] is permeated with fraudulent material that is designed to convert negative evidence into positive evidence with respect to the lipid hypothesis. That fraud is relatively easy to detect."
--Russell L. Smith, PhD
"Whatever causes coronary heart disease, it is not primarily a high intake of saturated fat."
--Michael Gurr, PhD, Renowned Lipid Chemist, Author of authoritative study on CHD
