Heart Disease is one of the top killers in the United States, especially in women. This is why there is so much statin use to lower cholesterol, because high cholesterol is what causes heart disease…right? No, not right. Cassie Bjork, author of “Why Am I Still Fat?” goes against the grain and always has. She says that cholesterol is not the demon, it is actually the hero! It all goes back to sugar.
