Uffe Ravnskov is a medical doctor and independent research scientist working in Sweden. He is one of the few medical doctors and scientists to have spent a considerable amount of time and energy in exposing the cholesterol myths that still pervade the general mindset. He has thoroughly reviewed the literature that relates to cholesterol and fats, and has helped greatly in debunking most of the false beliefs still held by the majority.

By meticulously going through the published literature, he confidently exposes all the fallacies and erroneous beliefs about cholesterol and saturated fats held by the medical establishment, and unfortunately, also by most people exposed to modern medicine and modern media. Ravnskov, unlike Kendrick, believes that the primary cause of cardiovascular disease are pathogenic viruses and bacteria that over time damage the lining of the blood vessels, this causes plaques to buildup, and eventually their rupture or even the sheer accumulation cause blockages that lead to heart attacks and/or strokes.
