The link between coronary accidents and cholesterol in the blood is a mainstream medical dogma that has been going on for the last 50 years. It has led to the development of a billion dollars “low-fat” food industry; and the prescription of statins the most sold medicine in the world.
Yet, more and more researchers contest the mainstream explanation.
How did the dogma settle, what are the stakes of the discussion and where do we stand today?
The film is a rigorous investigation on the cholesterol case, dealing with social, political, scientific and of course economical issues.
