Recently, ABC presented a two part special edition, Heart of the Matter. This was a controversial programme challenging the strength of the evidence of medcal advice regarding dietary fat and the value of statins. Dr. Norman (ABC) presented a response,What the research says about cholesterol and statins, which is a valuable public exposition.

The Cochrane collaborative review of the dietary fat evidence is available here.

The Cholesterol Treatment Trialists Collaboration most recent review of long term statin effects on vascula disease is here.
