Free book about cholesterol

From Uffe Ravnskov:

My first English book The Cholesterol Myths. Exposing the Fallacy That Saturated Fat and Cholesterol cause heart disease is now for free
Due to a conflict with the publisher its publishing was stopped six years ago. However, last year I saw that both new and used copies are still sold from amazon. I was told that ten different publishers sold it and one of them told me that they got the book from Ingram Content Group. I told Ingram that they were allowed to publish it provided that I got a reasonable fee, but they did not answer.
I also ordered a copy to see if it has been changed but amazon answered that I was not allowed to buy it. I therefore asked one of my friends to buy a new copy. They sent a used copy (I found the name of the previous owner in the book) claiming that it was new. The prize including shipping and handling(!) was 95.5 dollars!
I have therefore decided to offer the whole book for free on the web and it is now available on Please inform your family, friends and the public!
My book is a detailed description of the fraudulent way the cholesterol campaign was started with almost 300 references to the scientific literature. It may be a little difficult to read for lay people. If so, I recommend my other books in English (Fat and Cholesterol are Good for You! and Ignore the Awkward! How the Cholesterol Myths Are Kept Alive)
