Will The New York Times Eat Crow About Its Cholesterol Deceptions?
Majid Ali, M.D.
An Article of Eating Crow Series
For how many decades has The New York Times Published promoting the sordid cholesterol theory of heart disease? How many thousands of cholesterol articles did the Times publish in these years to support the marketing claims of cholesterol drug makers? How difficult it would have been for its medical watchdog journalists to read articles written by doctors like myself who presented scientific facts to expose the cholesterol deceptions?
Should everyone who wasted an enormous amounts of money to buy statin drugs for cholesterol and hurt his liver and muscles ask this simple question: Have medical journalists of The New York Times writing about cholesterol been watchdog journalists (as the Times’ claimed) or lapdog Joes and Janes?

Consider the following quote from its article published on February 19, 2015 and ask whether or not the Times should now eat crow openly and editorially.
“The panel also dropped a longstanding recommendation that Americans restrict their intake of dietary cholesterol from foods like eggs and shrimp—a belated acknowledgment of decades of research showing that dietary cholesterol has little or no effect on the blood cholesterol levels of most people.”
“For many years, the cholesterol recommendation has been carried forward, but the data just doesn’t support it,” said Alice H. Lichtenstein, the vice chairwoman of the advisory panel and a professor of nutrition science and policy at Tufts University.
Dr. Krauss said that some people experience a rise in blood cholesterol after eating yolks and other cholesterol-rich foods. But these “hyper-responders” are such a minority — roughly a few percent of the population — that they do not justify broad restrictions on cholesterol intake.
