Excellent! You’d think we’d learned our lesson about the harms of global dietary policy from the low fat debacle. Apparently not! Who is pushing the low salt agenda? Big Sugar?

On salt, the "lower is better" advice is contradicted by a large body of evidence which shows that too little salt consumption INCREASES cardiovascular risk. So a moderate amount seems best. This video by , McMasters professor, explains.

no evidence of a reduction of coronary events with statins in FH statin treatment success based on reduced LDL, not events unfortunately, low fat/low cholesterol diet also recommended, also w/o evidence of benefit clotting factors in FH more important than LDL in CVD risk

Low Density Lipoprotein IS NOT "bad cholesterol." LDL: Lipid protein delivering cholesterol & fat soluble nutrients to body. LDL can be oxidized by elevated blood sugar/rendered into numerous small, dense particles by elevated Triglycerides. LDL = innocent

Of course! The real problem is doctors who are paid off or hoodwinked into prescribing based on such poor data.

A slide from my talk, with two of my all-time favorite quotes from the scientific literature. I got to meet the author of one of these papers today! He was at my talk! Huge surprise...felt like meeting a ROCKSTAR, tbh.

And whenever government gets involved costs rise via infinite taxpayer largesse. Look at education costs ever since the government began to subsidy via federal purse strings. Medical costs will continue to explode while there is federal price fixing and subsidy

Yes. Neither consumer nor provider actually knows the price of care.

Big Pharma says after one positive study: "Miracle drug!" and opposes further studies as "unethical" Big Pharma says after 5 negative studies (unpublished) and 1 positive study "Miracle drug" and opposes further studies suggested by skeptics as "unethical"
