Four part article by Chris Kresser (Let’s Take Back Your Health) examining the truths and lies about cholesterol, saturated fat and cardiovascular disease.

- Eating cholesterol and saturated fat raises cholesterol levels in the blood.
- High cholesterol in the blood is the cause of heart disease.
- Statins save lives in healthy people without heart disease.
