The Cholesterol Conundrum Part 2 ! "Putting #LDL Particle Count into Context"

The original Cholesterol Conundrum was delivered way back in 2014. It explained how the lipoprotein transport system worked, to deliver energy (triglycerides) and also manage the crucial cholesterol cargo in the body.

Now Part Two follows up…on why LDL particle counts may present a problem - for some people. But not for others...!

There will be further installments - HDL’s role in the system needs to be expounded. And there is yet more to the story too - the oxidized LDL heresy needs to be balanced with some competing ideas… ;-)

Big thanks to cardiologist extraordinaire Nadir Ali and his team at Low Carb Houston - and the inimitable Carl Franklin from Ketodudes who managed the video/audio streams ! And so many others of course… :-)

Learn and enjoy…hit the image below for some cholesterol conundrum craziness !

Summary: many of you LCHF and Keto-knowledgeable peeps may already be doing the right stuff to prevent progression - that's super. But what about the other 99% of people in the world, who have no clue of the correct nutritional interventions for heart disease? Who are racking up calcium unknowingly, while munching their "healthy wholegrains"? They are entitled to that wake-up call - please share so these people with hidden heart disease can take action. They will come to realize that they've been scammed through decades of bad nutritional advice. Then they will search and find the correct solutions, understanding that something huge was amiss and the "system" essentially failed them. Heart disease can be managed and progression halted - but first you need to know that you have it.

The Fat Emperor Podcast is coming, but the mini-pods are here - short, sweet & salient !

Short and sweet, it reveals the Tsimane Imperative - how we can learn from indigenous peoples...what is important in heart disease avoidance and longevity.

These hunter-gatherer guys are leading the way - and the Calcification Scan (CAC Score) tells us some fundamental truths about how they achieve excellent health !

Want to find out your REAL level of heart disease? Okay then - here you go! #CAC

If you don't measure it, it don't get fixed.

You can resolve the progressive disease of atherosclerosis, which causes most heart attacks and deaths - but you first need to know where you stand. Then you can FIX IT - with part 2 of this talk.
So do you want to find out your REAL level of heart disease, and take action to stop it? Okay then - here you go!

 - Many thanks to Adrian Neville of Bank of Ireland who organised this charitable evening - can donate to the Jack and Jill Foundation in the following link:

Below is Part 2 of the talk - "Fixing It" - with an overview of the things that matter most!

Meet the Inventor of the CT Calcification Scan Technology - it could save your life ! #CAC

Finally caught up with Professor Douglas P Boyd in Las Vegas. He was the pivotal figure who actually invented the CT Scan of the Heart back in 1978. Here he tells the fascinating story of its inception and delivery, and also addresses the absurd arguments against the power of his creation:

Did you know that 40% of heart attacks occur in the 10% of people with highest CAC Score? Or that ~60% of 'Framingham Middle Risk' people are reclassified after a CAC - into LOW or HIGH risk groups? Or that a high score gives you ~20 times the risk of a heart attack - but only if you don't take action to stop the progressing disease? Or that people with a yearly rising CAC score - have 6 to 8 TIMES the heart attack rate compared to those with stable CAC? That's right - the Calcium Scan is cheap, fast and unparalleled - and it is grossly underutilized. Learn the key points in this interview, in less than 30 minutes.

Fat Emperor in Dublin 14th August 2018 - charitable event, and all welcome !

UPDATE:  Checked out venue this morning - there will be ample free parking...and a full bar running throughout the evening... :-)

It's not too often that I'm at an Irish event. However, Bank of Ireland's Adrian Neville has recently organised an evening at the Merrion Cricket Club in aid of the Jack and Jill Foundation. The latter is a very worthy charity, and unsurprisingly I'm delivering the goods for free. All are welcome.  Signed books may also be available on the night...for those who are serious about their health ;-)
