A new book of mine entitled "Ignore The Awkward! How the Cholesterol Myths Are Kept Alive" has been published, both as a paper back and in a Kindle version. Swedish and Danish editions of that book are available also.
   My aim with this book has been to show how white has been turned into black by ignoring any con%icting observations; by twisting and exaggerating trivial $ndings; by citing studies with opposing results in a way to make them look supportive; and by ignoring or scorning the work of critical scientists.
   Those who have not read my previous books possibly may not quite understand the width of these misleading processes. I have therefore included some of the most obvious contradictions to the cholesterol hypothesis, shortened and simplifed.
