"Man, oh man, eggs are super concentrated nutrients. There are very good source of choline, which is not just a wonderful fuel for your brain, but choline deficiency has actually been linked to muscle and liver damage and non alcoholic fatty liver disease, well it turns out that the choline and eggs is one of the best ways to fight that and I even recommend to people, you know, and this is good for you to know around this holiday season where you might be drinking just a little more alcohol than usual choline is wonderful for managing the inflammatory or slightly toxic response to alcohol intake, so eggs are kind of a nice little thing to be having for breakfast after, say, a, you know, a holiday party where you might have had a few too many glasses of wine. They have a nice anti inflammatory benefit. And so we've got colon we've got all of our micronutrients, eggs are very rich in protein, about 13% of an egg is protein, even the egg yolk has very good bioavailable protein. And so, of course, you're getting a wonderful release of satiety based hormones like GLP-1 and peptide YY, which help you feel fuller for longer period of time when you eat a protein rich food like eggs for breakfast. So eggs have a lot going for them in terms of what they contain. Now, for years, you know, based on what I was alluding to earlier, nutrition recommendations of flip flopped on eggs and cardiovascular disease. And that's mainly because eggs are high in dietary cholesterol and the story on cholesterol has gone back and forth. But the most recent epidemiological research definitely favors the idea that eggs alone are not bad for heart health. I mean, there was one 2020 study of more than 37,000 Americans over a medium of 7.8 years that looked at the health impact of egg consumption and total cholesterol intake and an earlier meta analysis prior to that found that dietary cholesterol has only a modest association with LDL cholesterol and total blood cholesterol, but in this new study, people who ate more dietary cholesterol tended to also eat more saturated fat and sodium. So not only was the number of eggs a person consumed daily, not linked to high cholesterol, but the researchers also found that eating eggs was not associated with all cause and heart disease, mortality. High total dietary cholesterol was associated with all cause mortality, but eggs didn't seem to play much of a role with that. And remember, even when high total dietary cholesterol is associated with all cause mortality, that's usually in a case where triglycerides are really high, HDL is low, blood sugar is elevated, inflammation is elevated, et cetera. And so there's been a whole bunch of meta analyses that have been done on eggs. Several others, even as recently as 2020, but what all these studies suggest that the older findings about eggs and heart health likely missed the point, eggs alone don't negatively affect heart health, but a western diet high in processed foods and saturated fats that may also include eggs, which is often the case, does negatively affect heart health. So if you're consuming eggs, you want to look at the source and you want to look at what you're consuming them along with. There is when it comes to obesity, not enough evidence to draw conclusion about eggs and obesity, the research seems to go back and forth, some research has shown that people who ate more eggs have lower rates of obesity, some have found that high egg consumption might actually increase abdominal obesity, but again they really didn't look at the context of what these eggs were consumed with. Whether it was Denny's toast waffles grits and eggs or whether it was somebody having a couple of pastured eggs for breakfast with maybe a you know some nice fermented vegetables on the side and a cup of coffee. In terms of the metabolic risk of eggs and so when I say metabolic risk, what I mean by that is the interference that it might have on things like glucose metabolism and blood sugar. There's been a lot of studies on this as well. And the basic takeaway is that metabolic consequences are probably not a reason to avoid eggs. Eggs eaten in the context of a sedentary lifestyle a western diet high in processed foods and smoking seems to have a deleterious effect on your metabolism, but eggs eaten as part of a balanced diet and an active non smoking lifestyle seem to not be an issue at all when it comes to your metabolic rate, your glucose, et cetera. Now the source of the eggs is, of course, no doubt, important. So a lot of research has shown that a hen's diet influences the nutritional composition of the eggs. And so what that means is that the amount of lipids and proteins is eggs of the same size more or less stays the same no matter what the hen eats, the fatty acid profile of the yolk, and the eggs mineral and micronutrient content varies considerably with the hen's diet. Like there was one review of micronutrients and eggs that show that the selenium content and eggs can increase as much as 6 fold with the selenium rich diet is fed to a hen versus a hen that wasn't fed that micronutrient enriched diet. If the hen's diet is high in omega 6 fatty acids, then it may actually be a problem for cardiovascular health, meaning hens that are fed lots of grains and corn versus like insects and grasses and things like that. Those are actually going to be higher in omega 6s and possibly more of an issue. Now compared to caged eggs, pasture regs eggs have double the amount of vitamin E and long chain omega three fatty acids and less than half of the ratio of omega 6 to omega three fatty acids. So if you're going to get eggs, get your pasture raised eggs. If you want a good book that really unpacks how to interpret which eggs are good and which eggs are bad, check out a book like Eugene trough's factory farm shopping guide or Liz, I think her last name is wolf, I believe she has a book called eat the yolk, which is also a really, really good way to wrap your head around how to shop for eggs the right way. The cooking method in addition to what the hen was fed is also important, egg fried and butter or extra virgin, olive oil, which is really high in polyphenols and flavanols that protect the oil from getting oxidized at high temperatures or an egg fried in ghee or coconut oil or macadamia nut oil or even like lard is gonna be far different than an egg that's cooked in, say, vegetable oil. And there are other things that seem to affect the egg. I like hard boiling eggs. May actually decrease the amount of bioavailable fatty acids and selenium and vitamin a whereas like frying an egg in a really, really heat stable oil that doesn't seem to do that same thing. So when we step back and we look at everything though, the best way to cook eggs when we look at all the literature is poaching or soft boiling your eggs, that yields the best nutritional value while leaving the yolk slightly raw. Okay, so runny yolk poaching or soft boiling if you're gonna consume an egg, that's the best way to do it from pasture raised hens ideally. Okay? So the big takeaway on eggs is they're not gonna be problematic for cholesterol or metabolism when eaten in the context of a healthy diet, you wanna get pasture raised hens that a natural.

"We're focused here on healing quest on the natural options to help us all achieve optimum wellbeing. Well, thank you for joining us as usual. We have lots of ground to cover and some of it's going to be controversial. For example, we're going to examine the research on gluten. A topic that many Americans think is essentially a marketing hoax. But we're going to be talking with one of the world's leading microbiologists. And he says the science shows that gluten and wheat protein Hurt 100% of everyone who is exposed to them that you heard that right 100% of everyone that's exposed to them. So fortunately, he has a suggestion about how to help our G I tract recover from that damage, which is a much bigger health challenge than we thought. So we'll have that information for you about 10 minutes. We'll also find out how to turn up the heat on fat cells and will try to help you avoid a diet fallacy that many people fall for when they're trying to lose that belly fat. We have the details on one big study showing that falling for this fallacy may leave you with a bigger rather than smaller waistline. That sound good. And we're going to find out about the healing properties of a medicinal herb that was once available only to Southeast Asian royalty. So it's now available to all of us and also That's good news for both men and women. Finally, Judy has a guest today on her wild woman Wisdom segment who has an interesting cure for the growing problem of loneliness in our modern culture. I'm going to be speaking with author Sarah Wilson. She's a best selling author. NEW New York Times Best selling author Amazon best selling author and in this, her latest booked this one wild and precious life When things she really addresses is is the The epidemic of loneliness, Um, not just in our country but in the world, and she says there's a cure for that, and I think you're going to want to find out what that is. But let's start today's show by catching up on some research in the world of natural health, including a big study about why big waistlines are a big health risk Findings, published in The New England Journal of Medicine report that Having a waist measuring more than 35 inches for women and 40 inches for men nearly doubles the risk of dying prematurely. That's more than 35 inches for women and 40 inches for men. Well, the research involved more than 350,000, European men and women. The key problem is belly fat that accumulates around abdominal organs, In addition to study in Britain, called the Million Women Study. Found a direct link between an increase in waist size and coronary heart disease over a 20 year period. Well, 36 year study done by Kaiser Permanente right here in Northern California, found that Those with the abdominal obesity and middle age were almost three times more likely to develop dementia later in life than those who didn't have the excessive abdominal fat and a study in Holland linked body and abdominal fat to an increased risk of breast cancer. So we have your attention now about paying attention to your waistline. We have a few suggestions about maybe how to shrink it. Well, obviously, it's important to exercise regularly, something as simple as walking. That's a good thing, and it's really important to eat better, and we have some suggestions about that. Well, first of all, we want to make sure you don't fall for the misconception that cutting calories means cutting meals. Now a study at Ohio State University has found that skipping meals not only doesn't work It can lead to abdominal weight gain, and that would be that belly fat. We're trying to get rid of. That's right. Well, researchers say, a number of small meals throughout the day and we've heard this over the years for many different doctors and different plans that you know these three. These small meals throughout the day is the best plan because skipping meals Just set your body up for larger fluctuations in insulin and glucose, and that can lead to fat gain instead of fat loss. Just the thing you're trying to avoid, you know, and skipping meals are drastically cutting calories has one other problem. It can make unhealthy food look more attractive Junk food or Sally Fallon calls the pornographic food. Exactly. So to lose those pounds don't skip meals, and that's especially true for breakfast. Research from the American College of Cardiology says skipping breakfast is associated with atherosclerosis, which is hardening of the arteries due to a build up of plaque. Well, the research involved over 4000 male and female volunteers, and the results showed that those who skipped breakfast had a much higher incidents of hardening of the arteries than the other participants. They also had bigger wastes and body mass index along with higher blood pressure and glucose levels, the study's author says. Having a healthy breakfast every morning is one habit that can definitely reduce the risk of heart disease. And keep your waistline in check. If you're just joining us, I'm Roy walking heart and I'm Judy Brooks and you're listening to healing quest, and we're talking about the critical importance of keeping your waistline at a healthy circumference. Big word. In other words, you want to smaller waistline. Exactly. Now, when it comes to diet, we have three waist slimming ingredients to recommend. The first one is sentiment. Researchers at the University of Michigan have found that the essential oil in cinnamon Turns up the heat on fat cells, so the result is improved metabolism that induces fat cells to burn more energy and protect against obesity. We like to put cinnamon in our coffee. That's one way to get cinnamon to your diet, and you know if you have oatmeal or something for a little cinnamon on it It's not sweet, Really. So you might want to a little honey or something to it to the process is called a thermo genesis. And scientists say cinnamon is one good way to make that happen. Another good ingredient in slimming your waistline is black tea. Scientists that U C L A have found that black tea promotes weight loss by changing bacteria in the gut. What happens is that bacteria associated with obesity decreases. While bacteria associated with lean body mass increases. Now the results are similar to the weight loss benefits of green tea, but this is the first time they've actually been confirmed for black tea. Researchers say. Both cheese also boost good microorganisms, and what they do is they contribute to our well being and deliver antioxidants and those antioxidants help keep ourselves healthy and third would like to recommend cauliflower is part of your healthy waste plant. Now cauliflowers often referred to as one of the healthiest foods on Earth because it not only helps control weight, it also wards off cancer, heart disease and brain diseases are all things we'd like to ward off. Also, it has 1/10 the carbs of white or brown rice, and it's packed with vitamins K C and B six. It's a great alternative to white rice and gluten free grains. And it can be mashed buttered are fried. Now we always buy organic cauliflower to avoid the pesticides and maximize the nutrition and and California actually has become one of my favorite vegetables. I think that's because we just when we discovered,.

"Southeast asians are a group that we know that even a little bit of excess weight can be linked to a lot more insulin resistance and also cardiovascular consequences and then just put the epidemiology obesity in context. We've seen down trending rates of cardiovascular mortality over several decades. And now we're starting to see while. These rates have plateaued when some subtypes of cardiovascular disease for example stroke. We're seeing an uptick in these rates and the broad consensus that these changes in our cardiovascular mortality trends are likely the early effects of this obesity epidemic. That's emerged over the last several decades so a really important epidemiologic public health and clinical challenge. That i think very much needs to be addressed. Well thank you very much. That was so comprehensive and really highlights obesity especially when it comes to prevention dr chatty as you've mentioned currently the who classifies have be city based. Ibm i and you even kind of alluded to some of the limitations. But i've had so many patients from the short gentleman who just jacked up at the gym or people of other different body types of all shapes and sizes who say. Bmi doesn't work for me. What are the limitations of using bmi to measure obesity. And i their benefits of measuring waist circumference instead for your individual patient get the has global consequences and it's something that we could study on a population level but when it comes down to personalize medicine does it matter and should i change the way i approached risk. Great in very important question so first. Bmi as you salute to is a great population measure for understanding cardiovascular risk population level and for looking at trends in obesity over time but the major limitation of bmi is that it does not reflect. Body composition and body composition is pretty relevant to understanding the risks associated obesity so in terms of body composition. I often use. Example of ray lewis. Who is a famous lamb. Becker for the baltimore ravens and at his peak kind of athletic performance. Bmi was around thirty two and of course lewis had very little body fat at that point and this was all really muscle mass but he would fall into the great one obesity range if you were just using bmi so i completely endorse and think that's very important to think about waist circumference because waist circumference is a a really nice way of getting a better sense of body composition. It's a helpful measure. That's quite underutilized. So why is it important. Abdominal obesity is what is actually most closely linked to insulin. Resistance and the rare metabolic consequences linked to obesity like diabetes hypertension inflammation and that's why abdominal obesity or wasted conferences. A core part of the metabolic syndrome construct unfortunately wasted conferences currently quite under utilized and we notebook from our work from other people's work that adding waist circumference measurements to the bmi measurements particularly those individuals. Who are in the overweight group. So bmi twenty to thirty and those who are in the great one obesity group thirty to thirty five gives quite significant prognostic information both for the likelihood of developing co morbidity and for the likelihood of developing cardiovascular disease so as very strongly encourage measurement of waist circumference in patients almost as another vital sign that we should be tracking to better understand risk particularly when we think about cardiovascular prevention by. That's really great to know in honestly can't remember the last time i saw a patient's waist circumference recorded in my clinics. I'm gonna have to start asking about that from now on but are so re ticket. Obesity is bad. Put doctrine. Do me why is it bad. How does increase at a positive fit into the schema of metabolic risk metabolic. And hey since we're cardi nerds. How does obesity and metabolic syndrome affect the heart..

"That it can lead to increase instance of diabetes. But it's usually a earlier occurrence of diabetes than if you weren't on the staten so if you were obese have high fasting blood sugar have metabolic syndrome with the big punch. You'll go into become a diabetic about three months earlier than if you weren't on the staten but for everyone patient gets diabetes. Five heart attacks are prevented. We've heard that term metabolic syndrome a lot and it's difficult to understand for us and our listeners. Netflix metabolic syndrome has five factors. What the main was the big punch big abdominal obesity which is a very active fat. It puts out chemicals. That are bad for us. It makes us more insulin resistant. Which for women going through menopause. That's where you're likely to gain weight. Yeah and women. It's really a higher risk falcon for them Second is blood pressure that's elevated third. Is the low hdl or low good cholesterol. It cleans out the arteries and then the blood pressure those the factors that really lead to more inflammation. And if you control those that you're much better off. We've heard you talk about fish oil before and as i recall. You're a proponent I want to know if you still are. And is that for everybody or is that just for people with heart disease well. It helps a lot of people in not just people with heart disease. Recent study showed that high dose fish oil. Epa specifically a certain type of epa which is within you find on the bottle when you buy in the store will reduce a heart attacks if you have real high triglycerides even if your ldl is controlled when it comes to fish and fish oil. If you don't like fish fish oil take its place. Oh you'd like ideally to use both of them and it's better to have the fish and there's no pill that replaces lifestyle in mediterranean diet is more than just a diet. It's a lifestyle aspirin baby aspirin who should be taken. It still think it's a preventative for people who have had heart disease or have art design if you had heart disease. Aspirin is beneficial. There's no there's no argument about that unless you have bleeding problems from it if you don't have heart disease it's not as helpful as we used to think it was. You have to be a higher risk for heart attack or the next ten years. Ten twelve fifteen percent risk those people benefit but the average person which is lower like seven eight percent risks..

"That's another great topic, particularly in the era of super great stress off 22. Any stress is not good. You have a chronic stress people learned to live with stress. One can say that a New York City everybody stressed, perhaps because everybody's stressed you don't even notice you stressed. Anyhow, let's go beyond that. And what you said, is absolutely right. The chronic elevations in all the cardiac risk factors such as high blood pressure. Hype cholesterol the the great waist circumference, abdominal obesity, so to speak, which is linked with a lot of widespread inflammation inside the body can all be the tremendous prediabetes very much associated as well on the same time. We have no proof that even exacerbations of heart disease, Certain kinds of heart attacks are related with stress that what we call a broken heart in the past. That was something that associated maybe tow the end off over love affair or to the end of a Auto end of a life of a loved one. And now we know that this actually a heart condition that's call that and and you do. The tremendous amount off Caracalla means a hormone that is that comes out of both of the adrenal as well as the nerves. The nervous system, the heart. Gets over burden and essentially because paralyzed the power of the heart can accuse the drop to like 10% from a normal of like 70 to 80% and, um In good conditions. This may reverse over weeks or maybe months, which is essentially the normal healing process. Of all these emotions. It is a different one. Difficult to say. You know what? Maybe my cholesterol would be 10% down or 5% down absolute. That's important. I'm not saying it is. It's a totally different thing to see a heart in front of your eyes. Beating only 10%. And then a month or two later that has reversed when the accused, dreadful situation is reversed. So have a lot of tangible. Examples like that even blood clot inside hearts. It was a very recent American Heart Association conference is just you know this in the November 2020 and one of the highlights was that women that have a very small heart attacks. It was unclear what it was before. And and if this meeting we heard that is related to a true heart attacks, not mine or not, like make believe you. No, no, They're not crazy that we're really very accurate. It just that because most of them are other young, They were kind of overcoming it. So yes, I will have the small heart attack ingesting had already overcome it. To a large degree by the time they come to our attention, and then we thought, Well, you know, maybe that was trash. Who knows how that means? Maybe they have nothing. Well, now we know Actually, they do have something and threw a particular stressful situation. They did have a man of heart attack and they're full of to protect them even further. You know, Dr Dingus just to kind of build a little bit on what you were sharing. You know, as we're approaching the holidays next week is Thanksgiving. We've got Christmas and Hanukkah for our Jewish brothers and sisters. Add to the fact that what our bodies physically emotionally spiritually have endured over 2020. We're seeing similar such a rise and people in obesity and people partaking of what we call comfort foods. We're not often able to go to gyms were unable to kind of move around, as we typically would have, You know? What are you seeing, though? In your practice, and what kind of words of encouragement would you give to our listeners? Who may be stress eating there. We've got Thanksgiving next week. You know, there's also just may be managing the stress that we typically are going through at this time of the year, but also with what we've been going through. You know what would be some areas that you were just kind of say to be cognizant of that whole going back to that phrase of Ganapathy soft tone of knowing ourselves? What would be some words of encouragement she would she would share with our listeners. Well, listen, 2020 is a very special year What So many so many upsets on so many levels and this whole thing with Corbett, India. Lockdowns and there were restrictions. It's just It's just a very hard thing, and this contributes to people changing themselves. Even with no preexisting condition with my nor preexisting condition, people may have Become heavier may have become more sedentary. That's pretty normal. If you sell some people you've got locked in your house and off course, will become like that. No, because they level of activity drops tremendously, but most importantly, they also become depressed. They have a certain number of depression, and I'm not talking classic major depression by the way, that's also increased. I'm talking about even minor depression, which which is his grace has become much more widespread on do you know, let alone on top of that? You had financial stress. You have stress you do the wider family. Either illness or most importantly, risk off illness that can drive people absolutely crazy, And it's all right. If there's no, not sick, they can become very, very, very upset about possibly becoming sick even over something worry. Activities. Their worries s O allow this. I think one has to come into a mode off really rationalizing. What is what is what is really important to them. Not what they hear, Don't know. Avoid making important what? What others people discussions or the media discussions or I don't know what else is important, but try to figure out their own path through this and also kind of prospective of this global. Not only them who feel distressed They have two members for the positive things. Perhaps you have to think, imagine or see other people who have more stresses and more hardships than they do. And they can feel comparatively somewhat more than courage to try to overcome. Maybe the five or six problems they have with a full understanding that they're not 15 16 or 20 that other people may have. And I think today's society with also a lot of utilization on an individual basis off social media or news or whatever, Uh People may may not exactly look around what's happened in the neighborhood and it of wider friends with circles and all that may be absorbed only to the statistics of whatever they read online or right there on the screen in front of them, whatever it is, and that, I think is a new thing. Differently new thing and I'm glad that Roxanne is a psychologist. Income talk a little bit about that. And she probably has seen a lot. This. This I think gives a sense off. If you don't overachieve. Maybe you're not good enough. Right absolutely out there, but that's not there. They have to kind of try to take one day at a time and try to understand what's really important to them like that anymore.

"Cancer happens and your key strategies for a healthy life. Dr. John Good Tuesday morning. Thanks for joining us, as always, we appreciate it. Thank you for having me, Mike. And then a tangle of listeners. I want to get to this obesity. Ah, study here and the CDC isn't new guidelines. But first, Dr John, I'd like to get the trajectory of the Corona virus. We're seeing cases increase across the board at a Navratilova about 50,000 Day. Not good. No in the incidents of covert 1940% higher number the last month in 30 states. The incident is on the upswing with Louisiana, not the Corta, Mississippi. Florida and the court are leading the way. Now this is expected to get even worse. Building. The cold weather season when people spending more time. Inside our than outside. Dr John We saw hospitalization rates going up in areas of Texas and across the country, but we are better handled way are better suited to handle hospitalization rates. Are we not Yes, we can. But again, as you mentioned in the beginning, the obesity can make this words. There is no evidence that obesity makes one more susceptible to catch the wider. How about those who auto bays are 113 times more likely to end up in the hospital, then those off a healthy weight 74 person are more likely to be admitted to a nice you. And 48 person more likely to die. You may ask the question why? This has happened. Let me give you an exam on explanation. Kobe City means storage of energy nutrients consumed in excess of immediate use into fact, in the morning their diet this means cheap processed foods. That are mostly made with grain flour. A born delegation this year's an abundance of glucose. Elevation of blood glucose causes release off insulin. Infinite remorse, all cell activities in growing wire multiplication. White can now spread to the lungs, making the infection more serious. Innovation. Deposition of Fat inside Edward could impede the timely arrival of immune cells to a site of infection. Also, sometimes doctors like Go with 19 infected people lie on their stomach officially dated briefly. You could not do this. If you have abdominal obesity. Is Dr John. We've heard UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson say he's losing weight. And that was one of the reasons he suffered so bad from Corona virus. He was on a ventilator If I heard you correct that increases the chance of entering your lungs is that what happened with Boris Johnson? Exactly. He admitted that he was to fact when he was hospitalized. He attributes did this to his late night binges off eating. His discovery he has become noticeably thinner is now exercising more running daily. This is dog on his side. So what do we need to be worried about? Here Are our body mass index. Ueno. The CDC has lowered it, but But, I mean, how do you even read body Mass index? Ah, What? What can I tell my just stepping on my scale, maybe some lifestyle changes. The According to CDC or 70% of Americans are over. 20 are overweight, obese or severely obese, with a body mass index identified 2 30. 30 to 40 or over 40, respectively. Now, as you suggested, the CDC saying You wouldn't even be having a little excess weight, you have a greater chance off severe illness. No matter the question is not only how to avoid getting the virus. But also how to reduce rate. To accomplish not catching the virus. We all know what to do, where facemask keep social distancing and practice hand sanitation. Anyone wanting to lose weight. My recommendation is very simple. Cut down the takeoff, all gain based foods to one half. Off your current intake doing. Eat me. But cereal bread boards prized notice pasta bits, barricade cookies. Just for two weeks. Now. Now the importance of doing this way off Losing weight is that you are in charge. You don't have then roared in an organized meet those programs. You don't have to eat any playback foods. You may occasionally regain some late, but You know what to do how to get back. Most importantly, This is a lifestyle change that you get practice for the rest of your life. Yeah, And we know from past conversations with you. You want us to avoid that? That anyway and I have to tell you And I've said this many times on this show. I cut out sugar about by 70% and Ah, I have not gained the weight back. And that was more than a year or so ago. So the grains in the sugar Ah, you don't need to go 100%, but cut back and it makes a different for sure. Most people needed encourage a sign that they are doing the right thing. They're losing lead. This is a simple thing. You won't miss anything you can eat. Everything is I can't wait but cut down the grain Baseball's just half Dr John, We appreciate your time. As always..

That's absolutely right terrain all these really important to pay attention to every time you see a patient. Let's start with a few notes on tobacco use.

We just need to do better as a society at the patient level, counseling education and motivational interviewing our key, and should be activated at every available opportunity, but more than that pharmacotherapy can be very useful for some people including nicotine replacement. Radically appropriate referral to a specialist may be helpful for some people. On a population scale, though public-awareness touted policy and insurance based incentives are all really needed. Why am thankful that cardiologists like Kareem dedicated themselves to epidemiology on a broader skuas? Well, these are all such great points to summarize so far. Every visit is an opportunity to address cardiovascular prevention after all cardiovascular disease is the number one killer. We do this by following our two principles of preventative management.

"Trae tease. You know there are millions of people in this country with heart. Disease in fact is the number one killer of both men and women in the US and the majority of those people have C. A. D. or coronary artery disease and. That's when the major blood vessels that supply the muscles of your heart. They supply blood. They supply nutrients. They supplied a supply oxygenated when they become damaged or diseased. It's called coronary artery disease. And that of course is usually the result of cholesterol containing deposits called plaque along with a little information inflammation and it is a process that we know as Atherosclerosis when the plaque buildup it narrows your coronary arteries and that decreases the blood flow to your heart's eventually that can cause symptoms that you might recognize chest pain shortness of breath a complete blockage can even cause a heart attack. And we know there's lots of things that you can do to prevent heart disease but what about reversing the damage that has already been done? Is that possible? Let's find out from Mayo Clinic Preventive Cardiologist Dr Stephen Kobetski. Welcome back to the program. Thank you for having me Backtra Kopetski you. You know. I've heard you say that you wanted to start a coronary artery disease reversal clinic suggesting that in fact if you're coronary artery disease you could make them better. Yes very clearly you can. We have the clinic. We just don't call it that. Unfortunately but the data the studies have shown you can reverse heart disease. You can reverse this narrowing of the arteries to the heart. Is You mentioned inflammation or the irritation of the lining of the artery is very important to reduce. Because that's what actually causes the blood clot to form in the heart attack to occur. And why do you get the inflammation in the first place? Well that's a great question. There are many things because inflammation smoking. High blood pressure diabetes. If you don't do those you stop the progression of heart disease of the narrowing but it's really diet. Stress Control Exercise. They will help not only stop the progression but actually promote the regression or the opening up of the artery. Is there one of those? It's most important diet stress control number. One risk factor now for early death and disease in the United States and soon to be the World Diet Diet. It used to be smoking. Smoking was yeah. So when you say Diane. Does that mean you have to become a vegetarian to reverse this damage or no? I'm Gong Broth. Only here on the right. No no you don't need to be a vegetarian but it helps if you go more towards more plant based so in the Mediterranean Diet. We've talked about here before. It has four things that aren't vegetarian in it. Red Meat which it suggested three ounces a day a deck of cards fish you know. Eat three or four times a week. A dairy products which is It's very limited just to like one pat of butter a day and then Things like poultry white meat to Turkey or chicken poultry. If you can eat most of your calories being plant-based fruits vegetables blooms whole grains and then to get full on that stuff and add in a little bit of his other things but the two things that Americans have forgotten about any Is Stress and social support and sleep. They all think well everybody's under stress don't worry about it and I don't get much sleep. I'm never I'M GONNA so don't worry about that either. Those two are huge. Because they don't allow you to have resiliency in comeback and change your lifestyle and make in lower your stress left say your heart can be healthier if you get better sleep and reduce your stress. There is no doubt about that now. What about cholesterol? Do we still worry about that. The guidelines have come out. And there'd be a new paper probably soon they'll say cholesterol isn't that important. They said that a couple of years ago and all the press picked up on was that clutch strong important. If they would read the article it would say that we eat so much saturated fat in animal fat and saturated fat in this country that the cholesterol we take in isn't as important as it used to be. So you really ought to cut down both the cholesterol and the saturated fat but you still believe in statins for people who have elevated cholesterol or are you more suggesting that it can be controlled with Diet. In most patients that can be controlled with diet takes a pretty radical change and we ask them to migrate to new died over one to two years. Because you can't just do it tomorrow. So statins have been around for a long time and there are a lot of people taking statins. So right right Any long term side effects that you've identified you know we've we have found that it can lead to increase incidence of diabetes. But it's usually earlier occurrence of diabetes than if you weren't on the Stanton so if you were obese have high fasting blood sugar have metabolic syndrome with the big haunch. You'll go into become a diabetic about three months earlier. Than if you weren't on the stanton but for everyone patient gets diabetes. Five heart attacks are prevented. We've heard that term metabolic syndrome a lot and it's difficult to understand for us and our listeners. Aspen Netflix Metabolic Syndrome has five factors. What the main was the big paunch big abdominal obesity which is very active fat. It puts out chemicals that are bad for us. It makes us more insulin resistant. Which for women going through menopause. That's where you're likely to gain weight and women it's really a higher risk for them Second is blood pressure that's elevated third is the low. Hdl Or low good. Cholesterol cleans out the arteries. And then the blood pressure. Those factors that really lead to more inflammation. And if you control those that you're much better off. We've heard you talk about fish oil before. And as I recall your a proponent I want to know if you still are and is that for everybody or is that just for people with heart disease. Well it helps a lot of people not just people with heart disease you know. Recent study showed that high dose fish oil. Epa specifically a certain type of EPA which is within you find on the bottle when you buy in the store will reduce heart attacks if you have real high triglycerides even if your ldl is controlled all right a drug called. Cpa just read that the FDA approved an expanded use of this fish oil drum. That's the one. Epa as the via C. E. P. A. is spelled and that's the one that they approved and that's one that showed benefit when it comes to fish and fish oil if you don't like fish in the you're trying to do the Mediterranean Diet but you're not eating fish fish oil take its place or is that something that you would want us both of them fish and fish oil you like ideally to use both of them and it's better to have the fish and there's no pill replaces lifestyle in the. Mediterranean died is more than just a diet. It's a lifestyle stop by the store on the way home. Pick up the the fish fresh. Take it home take awhile to cook it? Sit for a couple of hours with your family as you eat it and talk about the day. Don't just you know. Eat It on the way to the soccer game or something all right. Aspirin BABY ASPIRIN. Who should be taken? It still think it's a preventive for people who have had heart disease or have heart disease if you've had heart disease. Aspirin is beneficial. There's no there's no argument about that unless you have bleeding problems from it if you don't have heart disease it's not as helpful as we used to think it was. You have to be a higher risk for heart attack Over the next ten years. Ten Twelve fifteen percent risk those people benefit but the average person which is lower like seven eight percent risk. They they probably wouldn't benefit. And how does it work? It stops the inflammation in the lining of the arteries and also stops the blood clot formation in the lining of the artery when Exercises something that you're supposed to do. I think that can be intimidating for people when you say. Exercise is what a patient needs to do. What does that mean? Yeah fiscal activities. I've gone to more because exercise. They kind of fold cross their arms and looked at the ceiling in fiscal activity is two things one. DoN'T BE SEDENTARY EVERY HOUR. Get up and move around for three or four minutes. A lot of the big corporations around this country in the world. Now have a thing every hour where you get up and you move around so go up two floors to go the bathroom. Go Talk to a colleague instead of sending them an email. The second thing is intense physical activity. Which is what we used to do. A lot of when you do intense activity three great. Things happen very quickly. One is the heart is told to pump more blood because the muscle say hey. We're running from the sabertooth tiger. We gotTA TRY TO SURVIVE. The second thing is the blood vessels get bigger which lowers blood pressure and the third thing is the muscle. Say Okay Belly Fat Europe next if we survive this run from the Sabertooth Tiger. I need more. Energy can only have twenty minutes of energy and my cell. You start breaking down and sending me extra energy. Because that's where we put extra calories as an adult so it's the American dream I call it you can. Actually we've shown here with research. You can reduce abdominal fat with interval activity all right one final question study from the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. This mark guys. The guys researchers have found that eating Chili peppers regularly can cut the risk of death from heart disease and stroke true. That was the number one read article last year in the Jack and so it is true. And it's funny about. It is not just regular bell peppers hot peppers and this was in addition to a Mediterranean Diet. So they say why. We'll maybe it's inflammation it didn't didn't affect inflammation maybe it's phase. Ah delegation because you get hot and your blood pressure goes down. It didn't affect what looks like. It may be some of the antioxidants that are in their in. Some of these peppers have more all right. Can't argue with that. Peer Review Journal Heart Disease.

C. one eight hundred eight four eight nine two two two let's see what else we have here interesting info low carotenoids may be linked to metabolic syndrome and adolescence and this is the journal of nutrition great research this is a meta analysis for the national health and nutrition survey so it was looking at a less is twelve to nineteen years of age I think four thousand two hundred ninety five of them they looked at retinal retina Lester's care teams carotene Lou teams use intime lycopene vitamin E. vitamin C. and looking at metabolic syndrome so when they look at the research the significance was that the crowd noise and most of those vitamins were linked to increase the metabolic syndrome my question of course would be well what are the eating kids is a lot of carp you know so that's certainly part of the problem and to the extent there are some that just don't do exercise yet there are others to play every sport the canon so that would be an advantage okay phone lines are open one eight hundred eight four eight W. A. B. C. don't wait to the end of the program to Colin let's speak to friend now hi there in Long Island City how are you yes that's a tactic the question now you may have heard date celery use cranes movie stars celebrities in all thank you sellers I think those are the last people you should ever turn to yeah trying to do something that's rational yeah I don't know I just wondering what you're doing well what is it really doing I don't know thank god America thing to so many yeah there are no miracles I don't know what they're saying at times of course not so someone is touting something yes if you just drink celery juice all day your calorie intake is low I think it's dangerous because every just having celery juice and you're not getting the vitamins you need that's a dangerous situation because nobody will be worse as a result so died should be only done once you test your vitamins minerals absorption your hormones I think it's very risky to do that let there saying is only in the morning they say six I don't really care what they're saying because they're not scientists they're not doctors they're not learning about your body first and then putting together recommendations so if you wanna risk your health with somebody that has no knowledge whatsoever you can do that I I strongly rude the note suggested you do not if you want to lose weight if you want to make your body better you learn about your body first blood tests for vitamins minerals hormones country cards down accordingly correct your vitamins correct your hormones and in your body will do extremely well long term if you want to do a short or long term with celery juice you could do that I think it's a very bad idea I thank you again say that well yeah yes No signs and yeah you know you could make up something you could be the you know grass cut the loan and you know he crashed and see what that does for you is the same non scientific recommendations silo would do that at all thank you for your call phone lines are open one eight hundred eight four eight W. A. B. C. let's go to Jay in New Jersey how are you quality okay doctor pretty good question for you got a choice between taking out a large silver amalgam indoor mercury tide billing I haven't worked but the thing is they take they were thinking of just putting a crown over the top of it because it's a big one that I'm going to probably have to need a root canal but check it out likely so my question is what's worse really you think leaving some of that mercury killing in the mouth then and there yeah hello I'm leaving is worse because the evidence shows that the mercury in the amalgamation fifty percent can leach into your system blood vessels in your teeth a lot of people because the authorities so close to your mouth lend up with autoimmune thyroid disease from the mercury fillings that's documented in traditional medical literature okay thinking what we do for most people is to get a better handle on how much more grease in your system if you just do a blood test there may be no mercury or metals near the needle in the blood strong so you don't necessarily have to see that show up in the tube so the blood test is really a screening but may or may not show us much it only looks at what's coming to your body over the past three to four weeks you do a random urine for heavy metals that look to twenty one battles where the blood leads only look at five medals so even a random your tells us what's coming out of your cells like a kidney or bladder cells and that'll give us an idea as to what's coming out but that's not a total measurement of everything in every cell the third step which is the most accurate is to do an intravenous chelation procedure with calcium EDTA tennis will bind to metals you know lead and suction pulled out of your body into the urine can you collect a twenty four hour urine so that it shows us really what you're holding on to what one question I had though if I decided to take the filling out what I was wondering is if you didn't get the what he called the root canal than this material it goes in the root canal it till it up with like a rubber and what about that though how would we know about this having the feeling removed you need to do the killing should procedure first to see what sort of metal levels are there because if you remove the filling then that increases the mercury you know getting into your room and mercury vapor getting into tissues in your brain we've had people that have done the filling removal and have ended up with tremors or some brain abnormalities in changes right afterwards so we'd rather too late that person to pull the metals down and then remove the filling of the day after the removal doing chelation to grab whatever you can it just makes more sense to do it in a step wise fashion rather than to just pull the metal mercury out and see what happens okay is there any danger yeah get the huge success we take that out but if you need a root canal there danger canal the material is I don't know that there's a danger in reply now that really varies person to person it's yes it's nice to have that feeling out because you don't want to sit there to keep exposing your body to the amount of in the mercury okay okay thank you so much have a wonderful day phone lines are open if you like to call and do so now one eight hundred eight four eight W.
