The Cholesterol QuestionDownloadable Video - 2014
More than any other heart disease risk factor, cholesterol has loomed large in the public imagination. It is found in the plaques in our artery walls where heart attacks begin, and people with heart disease tend to have higher levels of the "bad" LDL cholesterol. But roughly 50% of victims have normal cholesterol levels, and many people with high cholesterol have healthy hearts. By inhibiting cholesterol production, statins reduce heart attack risk in heart disease patients, but medical researchers are now worried that increases in diabetes and obesity will trigger a new surge in heart attacks. Is saturated fat the villain it's long been made out to be-and are statins the magic bullet to heart health? This film is an investigation into cholesterol's controversial journey.
