This book gave me some good information about how to go about lowering my high cholesterol. I started the niacin treatment, but unfortunately found that I suffer rashes from it and have since discontinued. I plan to use the other information to hopefully lower my cholesterol.

“My Liver Hates My Guts,” is the title of a country western tune and reflects my opinion of this book’s cholesterol-lowering program.

To his credit, he issues caveats that go with this practice. I am not comfortable with it at all, however.
