Demystifying Cholesterol

placeholder image

There are many misconceptions about cholesterol. Some are over-dramatic, others minimize the issue. Much of this is due to a lack of knowledge. This book transforms something complex into a clear, simple package. What roles does cholesterol play? What are the causes and consequences of high cholesterol and high triglycerides? What kind of diet should we adopt? What should we think about food supplements? When does high cholesterol need treatment? What are the real effects of medications? And after a heart attack, can we go back to how things were?

Find the responses to these questions and more in 200, easy-to-read pages (in French).
