To the Editor: In October 2013, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation television program Catalyst featured a two-part documentary series entitled Heart of the matter. The first episode questioned the role of dietary saturated fat in the development of heart disease, and the second debated the use of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors (statins) as a suitable treatment for hypercholesterolaemia.1
