Today on the podcast, Paul talks with John Abramson, American physician, lecturer at Harvard, and author of the books, Overdosed America: The Broken Promise of American Medicine and Sickening: How Big Pharma Broke American Health Care and How We Can Repair It. They have the important conversation about the problems with profit-driven pharmaceutical companies, conflicts of interest in the medical world, and how changing medical education and the system at large is integral for a patient-focused path forward. A note from Paul: Throughout my training and practice as a physician I have come to one very disappointing conclusion:  Western medicine isn't helping people lead better lives. Now that I've realized this, I've become obsessed with understanding what makes us healthy or ill. I want to live the best life I can and I want to be able to share this knowledge with others so that they can do the same. This podcast is the result of my relentless search to understand the roots of chronic disease. If you want to know how to live the most radical life possible I hope you'll join me on this journey.

Healthcast 615 - Mitochondria, what are Mitochondria and what is their Importance to our health?

See all the Healthcasts at https://www.biobalancehealth.com/healthcast-blog/ Mitochondria are discussed in antiaging advertising like they are understood by the common man.  Even TV discussions and podcasts discuss mitochondria like we are all biology majors, but to most people mitochondria is a word but most people don't know really what they are.  Most people think Mitochondria are “good”, but what are they? Some examples of ads that use the word Mitochondria, reads “Take these Anti-oxidants every day and you will heal your mitochondria, and live longer…” “Your mitochondria are sick and need to be treated with BLANK to bring you back to health, just buy….” In reality, most students of biology and medical doctors are the only people who understand what they are and how they work, what can make them “sick”, and how to make them operate normally within each cell of our body. Simply mitochondria are organelles that take BS and Oxygen and make energy.  You can think of it as “breathing for the cell” , by taking blood sugar and O2 and creating energy, CO2 (carbon dioxide) and water H2O.  Mitochondria are the tiny determiners of our ability to metabolize food and make the energy the cell needs to do its job effectively. I bet you never thought anything about the fact that when you breath oxygen it goes into your blood stream on your red blood cells, and delivered to your tissues by diffusion through capillaries and enters the cells within your tissues…but what does it do then to sustain us?  That is where Mitochondria come in…as they work as I described in the previous paragraph. Another important piece of information about the mitochondria is that they are passed from mother to child, which means your metabolism is secondary to the genes only your mother gave you!  We call this genetic communicator that tells cells how to function metabolically, mitochondrial DNA! To locate our mitochondria, we must take a microscope to the human body, and successively dissect her into smaller and smaller parts:  A whole human body, divided into organ systems eg. Skin, Gastrointestinal system, then divided into smaller parts called tissues such as muscles and neuro-tissue.  Smaller still are the specialized cells that make up the tissues, call cells.  Smaller still are the mitochondria that are located within each cell in the body, providing energy to the cell, to make the whole-body work! Mitochondria are small, oval, sub-cellular “ energy packs” located inside every cell in our bodies.  These small oranelles within our cells turn sugar (glucose) from our food, into ATP (energy) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2).  They act like miniature lungs, taking in sugar which is made of oxygen and carbon, and returning CO2 as a by-product.   Scientists say that mitochondria's activity is “respiration”!  The CO2 passes out of the cell and is excreted by the lungs. So why do we use Mitochondria as a catchword for a way to sway lay people to buy a product to keep them healthy?  It is a way to explain complicated physiology to people who aren't trained in a particular science like medicine or biology, and a way to sell products.  The word mitochondria is associated with sickness and how to get better and it becomes a catch word everyone knows and wants to “fix”. However, if it is a fad or an advertising method to sell something, knowledge of what mitochondria need to make energy, is a valid pursuit.  In short, your cells need plenty of oxygen, healthy foods, exercise and a clean environment to make energy effectively in your mitochondria. Because our food sources do not have adequate nutrition for us and our mitochondria, we must eat foods that are particularly packed with nutrients and or add supplements such as resveratrol, Alpha-Lipoic Acid, L-carnitine and omega 3 oils to heal our “sick mitochondria”. All the while we are trying to “help our mitochondria” with nutritious food and supplements, many of us are inactivating our mitochondria just when we need them most!  How you ask? Those of the many people who take statins are inactivating their mitochondria 24-7.  That is how a statin works!  Statins inactivate mitochondria to decrease the production of cholesterol in the cells.  So why are we killing our ability to make energy and to be healthy, just to decrease our chance of getting heart disease later? Statins are only worth the risk if you have already had a heart attack or are about to have one and have narrowed atherosclerotic arteries.  Statins don't treat anything, but your cholesterol lab values, and only prevent additional buildup of more plaque. Some of my patients think statins are cleaning up the arteries, but they do not do that!  The risk for a heart attack includes blocked arteries, inflammation, smoking and a high Homocysteine level and Family history.  To clean up blood vessels, Zetia is the atherosclerotic cleaner-upper without the risks of a statin!  Zetia leaves your mitochondria alone! To know if you actually have atherosclerotic plaque, you should have a cardiac calcium scan to see if you do or not!  I have high cholesterol, and no plaque (I had one test in 2002, and one in 2019. High cholesterol doesn't necessarily lead to heart disease, but it does definitely stop your mitochondria from working! Since the mitochondria are so important to health, we will talk about How mitochondria can get sick and cause us to be sick in many ways throughout our body.

ORN Zoë Harcombe show notes 9/6/22 Epert in nutritional research In a study in the 70s, she found no evidence dietary fat is harmful. Found more health incidents and mortality when PUFAs were substituted for saturated fats. Found that dietary interventions had no positive influence and quite likely evidence of harm. They are not evidence-based. With protein norm at 15%. a maximum of 30% dietary fat means carbohydrates will be 55%. Harder now to uncover author and sponsorship conflict of interests. Relentless campaigns now against meat and dairy. But no evidence there. Do they want us sick? Eat Real Food. Potato is a real food but not a high nutrient food. Will the starch mess you up? Not if you're metabolically healthy. Could cause oxalate issues. Real food doesn't put fat and carbohydrate together in one package, except for nuts. But people find the combo irresistible, and food manufacturers take advantage. If you're feeling well, don't go near a doctor and don't test. Don't have overwhelming evidence that processed foods are bad. Difference between sugar in fruit and packaged sugar? None. Body doesn't know where the glucose/fructose/sucrose molecule came from. Five A Day Fruits and Vegetables is a complete fairy tale. What does sugar do in the body? We have 4 grams of glucose in our bloodstream at all times. After consuming sugar, insulin gets released to get glucose out of the blood, fructose goes to the liver. Too much fructose causes NAFLD, too much glucose causes diabetes. Hyperinsulinemia – high insulin state as a response to habitually too much sugar. Too much sugar smashes body's delicate mechanism for glucose control. Need a new paradigm on cholesterol. Statins are not the answer. Dairy – Zoë personally eats a lot of it. We don't need fiber. Carbohydrates are not an essential need. Fiber is a subset of carbohydrates and therefore not needed. Can it be a benefit? No trial evidence that says it's any good. Population studies show people who eat fiber tend to be healthier, but they don't prove it's the fiber that is causing the health benefit. Cereal companies want you to think fiber is needed. Eggs are really good. The yolk has the nutrients. Main sugar in rice is glucose. Average serving has 100 grams carbohydrate. Overeating high carb sources can cause blood glucose to drop below 4 gm because of insulin response, causing hypoglycemia. Want blood glucose to be even. With a habitual keto or carnivore diet, the body runs on fats. Fat is the fuel we don't run out of. If eating high meat, do you need extra fat? No, eat the food as it comes. Eat the fat on the meat, don't add more. Don't add butter to the steak if trying to lose weight. Burn the body's fat, not dietary fat. Mixing fat and carbs is the best way to add weight. Studies showing association between red meat and heart disease are population studies showing association between heart disease and affluence. Why don't dairy and meat industries defend themselves? Is honey a good food? It's just sugar with water. Good for wounds. Berries are the best fruit. ZoeHarcombe.com. Sign up and get a weekly email.

Statins save lives by lowering the level of 'bad' cholesterol in our blood, reducing the risk of heart attacks and strokes. But warnings about potential aches and pains in our muscles has put off some people from taking them. UK scientists have analysed the best statin trials and found that these side effects are actually rare – and the benefits outweigh the risks. We hear from Professor Colin Baigent in Oxford about how this study should reassure those who need to take them. On Health Check we like to bring you the best possible evidence – and for that we rely on research which has been peer reviewed. Professor Matt Fox from Boston University explains how scrutinising the research of his peers takes time and is unpaid – a situation which he believes is unsustainable. The bleeding disorder haemophilia B means the blood doesn't clot properly, so a cut or even a bruise can have serious consequences. Elliott who lives in the UK is one of the first people to try a new gene therapy which has effectively cured his haemophilia. And we hear news of a study which claims that tea drinkers might live longer. Presenter: Claudia Hammond Producer: Paula McGrath (Picture: A generic pack of statins with a stethoscope.

On this week's podcast Paul does a deep dive into Statins. He speaks on how they relate to “elevated” LDL and his opinion on who really needs to be taking Statins. He echoes the importance of spotting data manipulation, and digging deep into where the funding of certain studies comes from. A note from Paul: Throughout my training and practice as a physician I have come to one very disappointing conclusion:  Western medicine isn't helping people lead better lives. Now that I've realized this, I've become obsessed with understanding what makes us healthy or ill. I want to live the best life I can and I want to be able to share this knowledge with others so that they can do the same. This podcast is the result of my relentless search to understand the roots of chronic disease. If you want to know how to live the most radical life possible I hope you'll join me on this journey.

Despite what we want to believe, cardiovascular disease does not only start once we are in our 50s and 60s. As we welcome Kevin Bass back to the Know Your Physio podcast, we hear his opinions on cholesterol, the medications to take, and opinions on collected long-term genetic studies. We don't hold back on having a controversial conversation around starting the reduction of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in your mid to late 20s, the role of genetics in our predisposition to cardiovascular health issues, and how we need to look at things from an environmental, health, and nutrition perspective. Kevin tells us about his preferences and opinions on the different interventions for LDL cholesterol reduction and how he aims to (one day in the future) create a risk reduction calculator that will look at and create a risk-benefit profile. Plus, Kevin discusses his feelings toward Andrew Huberman, consulting medical professionals, and some signs of when it may be time to start looking at taking prescription cholesterol medication!Key Points From This Episode:People in the fitness industry who are pissing Kevin off.Different calculations people can do to determine their risk of cardiovascular disease.Interventions for LDL cholesterol (including prescription medication) and their side effects. A look at how to reduce LDL cholesterol.Kevin's opinions on Andrew Huberman.Unpacking cardiovascular disease considering your genetics and potential preventative measures. Why Kevin believes people 25 and older can start cholesterol medication.Where Kevin gets the long-term genetic studies data from.Analyzing and interpreting data on cardiovascular disease to create a relative risk reduction.Why Kevin wants to create his own risk reduction calculator and risk-benefit profile.Signs people should start looking for when deciding to take cholesterol medication.Questions to potentially ask your doctor to help you identify your cardiovascular risk (and why they may be unlikely to prescribe).A look at the purpose and benefits of statins, metformin, and rapamycin.Links Mentioned in Today's Episode:The Diet WarsKevin Bass on TwitterThe Kevin Bass Show YouTubeDebunking Andrew HubermanBiOptimizersAndrés PreschelKnow Your Physio PodcastSupport the show

A study looking at people with genetic variants that mimic the effect of statins and PCSK9 inhibitors showed significantly worse cognition and brain area among those with the statin variants. This suggests that statins may negatively impact the brain (PMID 35953131).This suggests that important benefits to cerebrovascular disease may be counterbalanced by other negative effects on the brain by statins through other mechanisms.An important caveat to the study is that while these statin-mimicking variants are expressed everywhere in the body in people who have inherited them, different statins have a different degree of selectivity for the liver versus other tissues (such as the brain).Statins that are selective for the liver are called hydrophilic, while those that are nonspecific and inhibit HMGCR in all tissues (including the brain) are called lipophilic.This is because lipophilic statins freely travel across cell membranes, while hydrophilic statins need to be transported into liver cells using transporters (OATP1B1, OATP1B3, OATP2B1, BCRP, and MRP2) expressed only in the liver (PMID: 29051147).Interestingly, another recent study found that statin users with mild cognitive impairment using lipophilic statins had an increased risk of converting to dementia compared to non-users and users of hydrophilic statins (https://jnm.snmjournals.org/content/62/supplement_1/102).This same study found using FDG PET a decline in metabolism in several regions of the brain important for cognition in those using lipophilic statins but not non-users or users of hydrophilic statins.While no strong, gold standard evidence implicates lipophilic statins as harmful for brain health, given the wide availability of similarly priced alternatives, these findings might suggest that hydrophilic statins should be preferred to lipophilic ones whenever possible. The hydrophilic statins are pravastatin (Pravachol) and rosuvastatin (Crestor), while the lipophilic statins are fluvastatin (Lescol), lovastatin (Mevacor, Altoprev), simvastatin (Zocor), atorvastatin (Lipitor), and pitavastatin (Livalo).===Like, comment, subscribe.For more, find me at:PODCAST The Kevin Bass ShowYOUTUBE https://www.youtube.com/user/kbassphiladelphiaSUBREDDIT www.reddit.com/r/kevinbassWEBSITE http://thedietwars.comTWITTER https://twitter.com/kevinnbass/https://twitter.com/healthmisinfo/INSTAGRAM https://instagram.com/kevinnbass/TIKTOK https://tiktok.com/@kevinnbassAnd above all, please donate to support what I do:PATREON https://patreon.com/kevinnbass/DONATE https://thedietwars.com/support-me/

The consensus in the medical community about the importance of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) reduction is finally shifting. Ample research shows that elevated triglycerides and triglyceride-related lipoproteins are more problematic than LDL-C when it comes to the risk of heart and metabolic disease.

It cannot be controlled by statins.  4:50 Remnant cholesterol is independently associated with the onset of diabetes.  5:33 Remnant lipoproteins are a consequence of lipid absorption from the GI tract.  6:50 Apo-B is on the extra cellular surface of atherogenic vLDL, IDL, LDL, and remnant lipoprotein.  7:40 HDL have the Apo-A1 protein on the extra-cellular surface.  8:35 Test your Apo-B to Apo-A1 ratio and your vLDL, LDL and remnant lipoprotein assessment.  9:15 IDL and vLDL are enriched in triglycerides and cholesterol and drive inflammatory processes. 9:45 Statins are anti-inflammatory.  10:45 Remnant lipoproteins drive metabolic disease by increasing ectopic lipid deposition.   11:35 Remnant lipoproteins induce endothelial dysfunction. 12:00 Clotting cascades can be driven by remnant lipoproteins.  13:35 Remnant lipoproteins can penetrate the arterial wall and become trapped and oxidized, creating plaque. 15:00 Remnant triglyceride rich lipoproteins are more atherogenic than LDL cholesterol. 15:50 Dietary fat composition can render lipoproteins more oxidizable.  17:00 Request the labs listed on page 1 of the Bloodwork Cheat Sheet. Do fasted labs then non-fasted lipid levels.  18:15 Lipid Load Test: if your blood triglycerides are more than 220 nanograms/ml, you have difficulty processing fats in the post meal window. 18:55 Lose weight, especially around the abdomen.  19:35 Eat a low carb diet. 20:05 Exercise regularly, both resistance training and aerobic exercise. 20:25 Statins lower triglycerides 20 to 30%. They also induce insulin resistance, which increases triglycerides. 20:55 Omega 3 fats reduce triglycerides. Test your omega 3s. 23:05 Optimal fasting triglycerides are around 60 and 70. Postprandial triglycerides should be less than 180.

In Episode #217, I sit down with dietician Ginny Messina to address common nutrition myths about the vegan diet. With an abundance of nutrition “information” presented to us any time we use social media, it becomes difficult to identify whether a claim is fact or fiction. Misinformation is a common issue across all patterns of eating — including a plant-based diet — and understanding the full picture is incredibly important to ensure health and longevity. Ginny Messina, MPH, RD joins me to address common nutrition myths about the vegan diet, providing a broader view that will help plant-based eaters make sense of nutrition needs. In this episode, we address 16 myths that could have negative health implications if followed. Ginny Messina speaks to the limitations and strengths of the evidence that we have, provides recommendations for optimal health, and discusses the ethical reasons for making diet choices. We also cover supplementation, concerns about vegan diets, and how to evaluate claims you find online.

In Episode #216, I sit down with Dr David Jenkins to discuss the relationship between cholesterol and health. Cholesterol levels are concerningly high among populations consuming a standard Western diet. On the flip side, plant-based diets are often criticised for their lack of cholesterol. We know that cholesterol is an essential component of the human body — but is it necessary to consume it, and is this a concern for plant-based eaters? Dr David Jenkins answers this question and much more in today's episode. In this episode, we dig into cholesterol and the health implications of sub-optimal levels. We discuss the Portfolio Diet, weight loss, and the current research on cholesterol. Dr Jenkins also shares his recommendations on how and what to eat for optimal cholesterol levels, as well as how medication compares to a lifestyle approach.

Kahn M.D.•           https://drjoelkahn.com/•           Book - The Plant-Based Solution: America's Healthy Heart Doc's Plan to Power Your Health At his core, Dr. Joel Kahn believes that plant-based nutrition is the most powerful source of preventative medicine on the planet. Having practiced traditional cardiology since 1983, it was only after his own commitment to a plant based vegan diet that he truly began to delve into the realm of non-traditional diagnostic tools, prevention tactics and nutrition-based recovery protocols. These ideologies led him to change his approach and focus on being a holistic cardiologist. He passionately lectures throughout the country about the health benefits of a plant-based anti-aging diet inspiring a new generation of thought leaders to think scientifically and critically about the body's ability to heal itself through proper nutrition. One of the world's top cardiologists, Dr. Joel Kahn has treated thousands of acute heart attacks during his career. He'd like all that to stop. He'd like to prevent ALL future heart attacks by breaking through to the public to educate and inspire a new holistic lifestyle. Now is the time to focus on educating the public to eat clean, sweat clean and apply cutting edge science to their lifestyle. #JoelKahn #TheRealTruthAboutHealth  #WholeFood #Vegan #Vegetarian #PlantBasedNutrition  CLICK HERE - To Checkout Our MEMBERSHIP CLUB: http://www.realtruthtalks.com Social Media ChannelsFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/TRTAHConferenceInstagram : https://www.instagram.com/therealtruthabouthealth/Twitter: https://twitter.com/RTAHealthLinkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/company/the-real-truth-about-health-conference/Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/TheRealTruthAboutHealth    Check out our Podcasts Visit us on Apple Podcast and Itunes search:  The Real Truth About Health Free 17 Day Live Online Conference Podcast Amazon: https://music.amazon.com/podcasts/23a037be-99dd-4099-b9e0-1cad50774b5a/real-truth-about-health-live-online-conference-podcastSpotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/0RZbS2BafJIEzHYyThm83JGoogle:https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9mZWVkcy5zaW1wbGVjYXN0LmNvbS8yM0ZqRWNTMg%3D%3DStitcher: https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/real-truth-about-health-live-online-conference-podcastAudacy: https://go.audacy.com/partner-podcast-listen-real-truth-about-health-live-online-conference-podcastiHeartRadio: https://www.iheart.com/podcast/269-real-truth-about-health-li-85932821/Deezer: https://www.deezer.com/us/show/2867272 Other Video ChannelsYoutube:  https://www.youtube.com/c/TheRealTruthAboutHealthVimeo:  https://vimeo.com/channels/1733189Rumble:   https://rumble.com/c/c-1111513Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/TRTAHConference/videos/?ref=page_internalDailyMotion: https://www.dailymotion.com/TheRealTruthAboutHealthBitChute:  https://www.bitchute.com/channel/JQryXTPDOMih/ Disclaimer:Medical and Health information changes constantly.

That's a terrible thing in and of itself but when we realize that most of that heart disease is preventable with pretty simple interventions, it makes it even more tragic.” “The biggest problem in healthcare is that about 60% of us have diseases that are preventable and oftentimes curable, we're just not doing that.”“87.8% of adults in the United States have at least one sign of cardiometabolic disease. And even more shocking, 78% of teenagers had at least one sign of cardiometabolic disease.” “People don't resist change, they resist being changed.” “If your strategy as a doctor is to say ‘You need to exercise, lose weight, eat better, and quit smoking and I'll see you in 3 months,' we can't be surprised that in 3 months, our patients haven't changed.”“If somebody is not losing the weight that they want to lose, they're eating well, they're being active, and they're still not losing that weight, I almost universally will say it's one of three things. 1. They're not sleeping well. 2. Their stress levels are through the roof and they're not managing that well. 3. Insulin resistance. They're not handling glucose well.” “One benefit leads to another benefit. You start exercising so then you sleep better which makes your stress levels better.” Connect with Dr. Hurst:Website

In this episode, Dr. Jockers explains how Statin drugs can cause an imbalance in the production of cholesterol in the body.
