Fat or Cholesterol: Which is Worse for Your Heart Health?

For decades, fat has been targeted as the number one health enemy, the reason behind your weight gain, and the top risk factor for a potential heart attack.

Once fat obtained its bad rep, you might remember seeing low-fat, and non-fat options in your grocery store. You might also remember hearing doctors preaching the HUGE difference in your good and bad cholesterol levels and how if bad cholesterol levels were left unmonitored, it could raise your risk of a heart attack.

However, after all these years heart disease remains the number one killer between both men and women. Not to mention that obesity, diabetes, and other serious health issues are skyrocketing.

Did doctors have it all wrong?

Much of the research behind the low-fat diet craze of the 80s and 90s has been largely discredited, and experts now believe it's actually NOT the main reason behind heart health problems.

Is there a direct link between cholesterol, fat, and your heart health?

Dr. Jonny Bowden, the Rogue Nutritionist and co-author of The Great Cholesterol Myth, joins Dr. Mike to discuss misinformation being taught by mainstream medicine between saturate fat, cholesterol and heart disease.
