Could Protein be a Problem for Aging and Cancer?

Protein Intake – Effects on  Aging, Longevity and Cancer – Dr. Ron Rosedale4.3 out of 5 stars5 star67%4 star10%3 star8%2 star3%1 star8%56 ratings5631:12

Could excessive protein in the diet be a problem for aging and cancer?

Here’s a very controversial presentation that I found fascinating. It’s Dr. Ron Rosedale’s presentation on the importance of protein restriction for health, recorded at the recent Low Carb Vail Conference.

This – should it be true – is just one of the reasons a proper low-carb diet should primarily be higher in fat, and contain only moderate amounts of protein. A low-carb, high-fat diet.

Obviously the body needs protein – it’s an essential nutrient – but there’s no need to eat more protein than necessary to feel and perform at our best.

4.3 out of 5 stars5 star50%4 star38%3 star7%2 star2%1 star0%102 ratings1,874 viewsHere’s the inspirational story of Lisa Colclasure. How she got into better physical and emotional shape in her 40s than in her 20s, using an LCHF diet (and weight lifting).

She also managed to get off her antidepressant medication. Incredibly her doctor recommended her to stay on it for life, even though the reason for her feeling down was that her husband had passed away – it should be very normal too feel down after that. Well, Colclasure did NOT need to be on drugs to feel good, it turned out.

Does Low Carb Have a Cholesterol Problem?

LCHF and LDL – Dr. Sarah Hallberg4.3 out of 5 stars5 star64%4 star18%3 star6%2 star4%1 star8%50 ratings5028:56

Can a low-carb diet be bad for your cholesterol? No… and maybe.

Most people get great cholesterol values on a low-carb diet. The only thing that usually goes up is the good HDL cholesterol, which is fantastic. This has also been shown in studies, where people on average improve their cholesterol and reduce their risk.

But even if a majority improve their cholesterol, a small minority of people may get significantly higher bad LDL cholesterol. This happens whatever type of measurement we do. Is it dangerous? Nobody knows for sure. So what do we do? Ignore it?

Dr. Sarah Hallberg (of TEDx fame) says no – we can’t ignore these people. In this presentation from the recent low-carb conference in Vail she discusses what we should do instead – and how to think about your cholesterol on a low-carb diet.

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


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.
