438: Justin Smith Says There Are $29 Billion Reasons To Lie About Cholesterol


Justin Smith, author of $29 Billion Reasons To Lie About Cholesterol, is our guest today on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Justin Smith is a fitness coach who strongly supports individual health approaches for each individual. But there is one thing he believes everyone should be extremely leery of: the bogus claims of modern Western medicine about the dangers of cholesterol (and saturated fats) and the supposed benefits of taking statin drugs to help.

Topics discussed in this interview include metabolic typing, how pharmaceutical companies drive most of the research on cholesterol, the way medical school curriculum indoctrinates false beliefs into the minds of our young doctors, charities misapplying research and treatment dollars, and even (gasp) statins in Happy Meals?! If you or someone you know takes a statin drug to “protect” yourself against having a heart attack, then you need to listen to this podcast!

Special thanks today to our sponsor Z-Sweet for supporting this episode of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show!”
