    Heart health is the big issue in our health problem. That’s why we can not niglect it. And your video really useful for me.

    Lets think about this. our bodies make cholesterol FOR A REASON. it is there for all of your hormones and to patch up scratches and scrapes so we dont bleed to death. If you lower your cholesterol too much, you wont have any to patch and make hormones. There are tons of things we need it for. Its not cholesterols fault that our arteries get clogged, its the bad foods that hurt the wall linings. so if you cut out all the bad oxident foods, then you wont have scratches that need patching. There are REASONS why we have the plaquing, its not the cholesterols fault. would you blame the fireman that is at the fire for starting the fire? Nooooo!! Statins are bad for you. All drugs are bad for you. They all stop functions in the body. So when you stop a function, it causes other problems and the poisonous drugs ruin your liver too! I took a statin for a year and my elbows hurt so bad i could barely move my arms! does that sound healthy and helpful?

    This video is THE BOSS when it comes to common sense when it comes to diet and cardiovascular disease. It is non-biased, evidence-based, and correct. Dr. Maron has no ax to grind, just a scientist reporting on the studies and conclusions.

    Wow… At 54.25 he says if LDL is below 70 then one can reverse the plaque. Wow.
    But I think he is talking about achieving this with medications. I follow Dr esselstyn diet – and have been below 70mg/DL for last three years. Hopefully my atherosclerosis is reversing 🙂

    At 53minutes, is it possible to get LDL as low as 33mg/dl?
    The lowest I got was 39mg/dl using atorvastatin 20mg and plant based diet with no oil. Anyone got any lower than this?

    #GoVegan Egg whites are NOT healthy. Listen to plant-based doctors and not this one.

    This is so important, especially for seniors who often are less physically active and also sometimes struggle to eat a healthy diet for a variety of reasons. Some additional helpful resources to improve heart health for older adults can be found here: http://gracehomecare.com/category/heart-health/

    The artery improvements by Ornish and Esselstyn were vegan no oil diets. Fish shows benefit in population studies because those people are eating less other meats and generally the fish eaters were wealthier. So there is tremendous confounding with fish studies. The longevity studies in mice show detrimental results from more protein and fat.

    I followed Esselstyn’s program precisely. I lost 60 pounds in 4 months. Hypertension: gone! Chest pain: gone! High cholesterol: gone!. Protienuria: gone! In six months I went from fat and sick to running triathlons. I don’t think this guy’s program would produce those results. I’m skeptical! Study Esselstyn, Ornish, McDougall. They got the straight dope.

    for shame Dr David Marion MD

    8:02 Lolz "ding dongs are a high sugar food", ding dongs are high fat foods, hilarious. "Greek diet", again hilarious, Greeks didn’t eat olives everyday, Greeks did a lot of "fasting".

    Nice one

    It’s now January, 2019. LDL cholesterol has now been taken out of the risk calculators for heart disease. It simply isn’t a useful metric. Ratios give better insight…
    Total Cholesterol to HDL.
    HDL to triglycerides.
    These, of course, are actually giving insight into metabolic health. It’s metabolic health and glycation that is at the root of heart disease.

    I`ve been using this fat loss program “Yamzοkο Weebly” (Google it) for several weeks right now and so far I adore them! I have the energy I would like without having suppressing my appetite without having making me feel jittery. I have not changed anything else I`m doing and also have lost 7 lbs. .

    Stents and Statins do take you out, and as a regular Hospital Customer to "prevent" IT.
