In this episode I talk to Dr. Malcolm Kendrick about his new book "The Clot Thickens". We discuss why the traditional LDL/cholesterol hypothesis of heart disease is wrong, and why the scientific evidence actually supports an alternate hypothesis much more strongly. That alternate hypothesis is the thrombogenic hypothesis, which we go through in some detail. Finally, Malcolm tells us what people should be doing in order to protect themselves from heart disease.
