  • ​Dr. Anchors on Television on Oct 30, 2012 at 4 PM talking about his book ‘Medical Myths’

    ​I am somewhat certain I will be on TV cable channel 10 at 4:00 PM on Tuesday October 30. The show airs only in the Washington DC area, but hey, Washington is a big, important city. The show was supposed to be about my new book Medical Myths Doctors Believe about the fact that a huge part of what medical doctors know is false. OMG the practice of medicine has little to do with science. Commerce rules.

    Along the way, the book explains the truth about blood pressure, salt, cholesterol, diet pills, kidney stones, osteoporosis drugs and a lot else. All different from what you thought. Readers are armed to resist the nonsense their physicians believe. Even if doctors don’t read, patients can. I give you the tools. The book is available on Kindle and in paperback from book Amazon

    I will record the TV show and make copies if I like it. I don’t remember what I said on the show; I was so focused on posture, facial expression, attitude and not stuttering. I worry, however, that the interviewer was focused on diet. She knows I am a "diet" doctor; I was on her show before. She had read only "parts" of Medical Myths, so I worry that much of the discussion was off-point. I won’t know until I see the show.

    Meanwhile I am preparing to go to cardiologist’s offices to present them with convincing evidence that THERE IS NO EVIDENCE that high cholesterol causes heart attacks and the statin drugs (Lipitor, Crestor, Zocor, etc) do a lot of harm to people for no benefit. I am an expert witness in court cases for patients, injured by statin drugs, suing their doctor. I am qualified. I have a Ph.D. in biochemistry from Harvard, worked on cholesterol at the NIH in the studies testing lovastatin (Mevacor) before it went on the market. I took Mevacor, kept my weight down, exercised, ate a low-fat diet, never smoked and still suffered a heart attack in 2004 at age 55. That heart attack was caused by the stress involved in publishing, promoting and defending phen-pro.

    My new understanding of cholesterol developed in 2009 after reading Malcolm Kendrick’s book The Great Cholesterol Con. From there I learned about the grandfather of all skepticism, Uffe Ravnskov, MD, PhD. Look him up on Wikipedia. Check out THINCS.org (The International Network of Cholesterol Skeptics). Uffe’s latest book is Ignore the Awkward: How the Cholesterol Myths Are Kept Alive (2010). Malcolm’s book is an easier read for people with no scientific training, but both books can be read by non-scientists. Both are available on Amazon. Go on-line, too, to see the trailer or get a copy of The Statin Nation: The Great Cholesterol Coverup (2012), a new movie by Justin Smith about the cholesterol conspiracy.
