Dr. Ladd McNamara is a Maverick. One of few medical practitioners trained in Western medicine, who has dared to stand up to the pharmaceutical industry; Dr. Ladd McNamara is not afraid to “tell it like it is.” In the years that I have known and worked with him, I have found him to be a conscientious and dedicated physician—one who has refused to buy into the false promises offered by our drug-dominated health care system.
His recently revised book, "The Cholesterol Conspiracy" is a hard-hitting exposé on the drug industry and the widespread abuse of statin drugs. Citing the hard facts of clinical studies, Ladd McNamara, M.D. exposes how a disease-centered industry has manipulated research findings and ignored conflicting studies to suit the bottom line of the controlling drug cartel. As Ladd tells it, the pandemic-like prescribing of statin drugs by doctors duped by Big Pharma has perpetrated one of the gravest of crimes imaginable on an unsuspecting public—a purposeful abuse of public health and safety.
As is the case with anyone who dares to buck the system, Ladd has received his share of personal attacks. What he and others who practice nutritional medicine espouse is an anathema to our current healthcare model: his tenet is that each of us has the ability to optimize our health and longevity through an informed and pro-active approach to wellness—one that does not depend on expensive and dangerous drugs as a quick fix to decades of intentional neglect. As a physician, Dr. Ladd McNamara has returned to the simple truth expressed centuries ago by Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine: “Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.” How “outrageous,” indeed!
We need more “Ladd McNamaras” in this world.
