Does Everyone With Heart Disease Have Diabetes?

Framingham and the Muddy Waters – Dr. Jeffry Gerber4.9 out of 5 stars5 star95%4 star0%3 star5%2 star0%1 star0%20 ratings2033:15


How do you know if you’re at risk for heart disease or not? Traditional cholesterol panels are not usually very helpful – but they should not be ignored completely either.

What may matter most of all is something discovered by the now retired 94-year-old doctor Joseph R. Kraft. He discovered a very strong link between heart disease and diabetes type 2… so strong that he said this:

Those with cardiovascular disease not identified with diabetes… are simply undiagnosed.

It’s quite an interesting story, and at the recent Low Carb Vail conference Dr. Jeffry Gerber told it effectively. The presentation, shot with 4 cameras and with the slides edited in, and including captions, is now available on the member site.

Dr. Maryanne Demasi Applauded For Exposing Statin Con

This clip is worth watching. It’s Dr. Aseem Malhotra speaking in Australia, about how Dr. Maryanne Demasi was attacked for questioning mass statin prescriptions on national TV.

“Stop Buying Into the Great Statin Con”

glass_statins1

It’s time to stop buying into the great statin con, says Dr. Aseem Malhotra. The benefits have been greatly exaggerated and the side effects have been downplayed, as our knowledge is completely based on studies from the statin industry.

Side effects include muscle pain, weakness, feeling tired, and slightly reduced IQ. Also, for every one hundred people taking statins for a few years one extra person will develop diabetes type 2.

Apparently newer and more rigorously controlled studies (after 2006) on statins show overall no significant benefit at all.

Considering all this statins should probably only be prescribed to people at very high risk of heart disease (usually only people with preexisting disease). Certainly not to a large part of the healthy population.

The Average Age of a Heart Attack Falls to 60 – Guess Why?

man-heart-attack

For the first time in generations, the average age of people suffering severe heart attacks have fallen – from 64-years-old to 60-years-old.

The culprit? Probably the massive increase in obesity and diabetes.

In short, younger and fatter Americans are falling victim to life-threatening heart attacks at a much higher rate.

Why Saturated Fat Is Actually Good For You

Why Saturated Fat Is Actually Good For You

Saturated fat isn't as bad for you as you probably think.

Posted by The Huffington Post on Saturday, March 12, 2016

Is saturated fat mostly good for you? Sure. Here’s a short video about it, one that has been viewed over 300,000 times in a couple of days. Consider watching and sharing.

The man in the video is Dr. Mark Hyman and he has a new book out called Eat Fat, Get Thin. I have not read it yet, but it should work fine.

New Study: People Eating MORE Saturated Fat Get LESS Heart Disease

angel_butter

This is fantastic. A new Dutch study followed 36,000 people and tried to find a connection between the amount of saturated fat they ate and the risk of heart disease.

This time there actually was a connection. People eating more saturated fat (like butter) got way less heart disease!

The Study in AJCN

This should be impossible

Obviously this is only a statistical trial so it does not prove cause and effect. It doesn’t prove that butter protects against heart disease. But it’s still another big nail in the coffin for the failed low-fat diet. Because it’s almost impossible to get a result like this if saturated fat was really dangerous.

Imagine doing a study and finding that smokers get way less lung cancer, and the more they smoke the less lung cancer they get. That would be weird. It would also never happen. Because unlike natural saturated fat, smoking is actually bad for you.

Here’s another fantastically awkward thing that would not happen if saturated fat were as bad as some people still think: Stunning: Saturated Fat and the European Paradox

And here’s yet another: The Real Association Between Butter and Heart Disease in Sweden

Swap Statins for a Daily Apple to Improve Heart Health, Say Health Experts

applestatins

Daily cholesterol-lowering medications do more harm than good for more people, argue health experts. They should not be used routinely for people who do not already have heart disease, as the side effects outweigh the benefits:

The Telegraph: Swap Statins for a Daily Apple to Improve Heart Health, Say Health Experts

The article is based on a new debate in BMC Medical Journal. Note that the two people who argue for widespread medication with statins for healthy people both are on the payroll of Big Pharma.

Personally I’m not convinced by the apple argument though, I doubt it will make much of a difference. What really has been proven to protect against heart disease is a higher-fat Mediterranean diet with extra nuts or olive oil.

Were the Ancient Egyptians Healthy, While Basing Their Diet on Wheat?


4.4 out of 5 stars5 star62%4 star20%3 star9%2 star3%1 star3%54 ratings2,326 viewsIs it healthy to live on a diet full of “healthy” whole grains, while eating no sugar or modern processed foods?

Let’s look at a well-known people who did exactly that. Above is a short segment from a presentation by Dr. Michael Eades at last year’s LCHF Convention. The ancient Egyptians basically ate what most modern nutritionists would consider a perfect diet. So what happened?

Unfortunately, in autopsied mummies there are signs of severe heart disease and some people even had weight issues… perhaps it’s not so healthy to base your diet on wheat?

Watch the full presentation

In the full presentation Dr. Eades also talks a lot about the origins of the low-carb diet. You can buy access to the entire LCHF convention for $49 dollars from the organizers. Or you can watch this talk on our member pages:
