A Starter:  Is the peer-review system a guarantee for quality?
Most medical journals use the so-called peer-review system. This implies that for being published all manuscripts are scrutinized by one or two external specialists (referees) in the issue. Here are the comments from five referees, who were asked to review a manuscript by Uffe Ravnskov, sent to and rejected by three different medical journals before it was accepted for publication in Quarterly Journal of Medicine without any changes. Dr. Ravnskov's comments were also sent to the editors of the journals that rejected the article. 

Here are the objections by the referees together with Dr. Ravnskov's responses  
You can read the QJM article here.

Do you think that the huge number of papers worshipping the cholesterol hypothesis have been met with similar comments?


Have you had any side effects from statin treatment?

In spite of their negative findings they concluded that their study "certainly provide support, at an individual level, for the central role of dietary fat intake in the causation of cardiovascular disease."
