Abstract

Heart disease is a major problem in the United States, and while the generally accepted causal agent for heart disease is high levels of serum cholesterol, there are some who have suggested that the current paradigm could, in fact, be a myth. This project is focused on uncovering more information through an investigation of both what doctors and scientists believe about the cholesterol theory and the information which is being given to the public about cholesterol, heart disease, and statins.
