The Clot Thickens: The enduring mystery of heart disease
About this deal
As I documented in The Corruption of the Human Diet , the Lipid Hypothesis has been used to justify For example, your triglyceride level divided by HDL cholesterol level is somewhat predictive of heart disease risk. However, that's largely because it's indicative of insulin resistance. The latter being quite impactful on heart disease. That aside. The Thrombgenic Hypothesis is an extremely powerful mental model that allows you to conceptualize your individual risk of cardiovascular disease based on the health and lifestyle factors that damage the inner lining of your blood vessels (the endothelium).
The Great Cholesterol Con: The Truth about What Really Causes
Consume foods such as animal meat and organs, rich in l-arginine. All three of which increase your natural production of nitric oxide, a potent anti-clotting factorAlso, I have always been amazed by the strange way terms are defined, and then misused in medical science. My favourite is the term triglycerides, which to a former chemist like me, obviously refers to a triple ester (hence the tri prefix) of glycerol and an acid of some sort. If the acid is a fatty acid then it describes plain old fat – yet as you point out, this is not found in the blood stream. As you explain, for some reason this term is used to refer to VLDL! In the end, you cannot just bring a whole bunch of wildly different factors together, declare that cardiovascular disease is ‘multifactorial’, and everything is now, officially, sorted. No need to look further. Move on, nothing to see here. Sorry for the pessimistic view, but whether it’s the majority supporting the governments’ policies or the governments imposing those policies being controlled by world banks, etc., the outcome is the same.

BUT, I eat very low carb, so it’s the saturated fat on my lamb chops (and some wine) that’s making me a bit porky.so much of this nonsense happening in this world today when boiled down by the likes of Dr Zalenko and Dr Malone and many, many others (including our Doc) reveals the obvious truth.

the only way people can get immunity to a cold/other virus/bacteria is by exposure. The slight exposure from someone else’s aerosol triggers an immune response. In fact, I am being slightly disingenuous here. I had been thinking about blood clots for many years, but in a rather uninformed and directionless way. Many moons ago, when I was a medical student at Aberdeen, I was briefly taught cardiology by Dr Elspeth Smith. In a small group tutorial, she mentioned to us fresh faced students that LDL cannot penetrate the endothelium. Bing!
If anyone still needs to be convinced that it’s simply the governments doing what the majority of the people (voters) want, in Switzerland’s referendum for implementing the Covid certificate 62% of the voters said yes. That should get the old cholesterol up a tad, which will get Smaug (my diabetes nurse-dragon) hopping up and down with angst. continued funding of recommendations of the consumption of industrially-refined seed oils (canola, soy, corn, safflower, vegetable, etc.).
