What’s Really Going on With Cholesterol and Heart Disease?

Practical Lipid Management – Dr. Cate Shanahan4.7 out of 5 stars5 star87%4 star0%3 star4%2 star4%1 star2%41 ratings4134:55


How should you think about cholesterol and heart disease? Is it really just about lowering “bad” LDL cholesterol by any means? As every animal in nature has plenty of LDL cholesterol in their blood that would pretty much mean that “all of nature is wrong”, says Dr. Cate Shanahan.

In this presentation from Low Carb Vail she discusses a more logical way to look at cholesterol and heart disease, plus how to think about it on a low-carb diet. She also shows off some pretty fancy 3D animations.

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 star10%2 star3%1 star8%59 ratings5931:12


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.

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.

Diet, Health and an Epidemic of Misinformation

Diet, Health and an Epidemic of Misinformation – Dr. Aseem Malhotra4.9 out of 5 stars5 star91%4 star5%3 star0%2 star2%1 star0%34 ratings3448:15


Cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra speaks up on things that others keep quiet about. In this presentation he’s on fire – taking on the shenanigans of Big Food, Big Pharma, and the gullibility and (sometimes) ineptitude of modern health care.

The result of all this is a situation where people get sick from the food they are recommended (or the food that is available), and then they are prescribed way too many medications and they are exposed to way too many medical procedures.

The result? Poor health for millions of people, tons of side effects and a bankrupted healthcare system.

The solution? It’s not going to be easy. But it starts with exposing the problems, the bias and the corruption. Sometimes sunlight is the best disinfectant.
