Posted on 04/26/2014 6:43:51 PM PDT by willk
Scientists at Johns Hopkins University may be one step closer to eradicating debilitating heart diseases in humans, particularly those caused by excessive buildup of cholesterol.

It will NOT be covered by obama care!! He wants you to die like 55 million babies.
A lot of top docs now believe the problem isn’t with high cholesterol itself - the plaque build-up is caused by inflammation on the artery linings, and the inflammation is from the foods we eat.
#1 culprit being sugar.
Not a doc, never played one on TV, but did have a triple-bypass after years of being a runner. Never had heart issues of any kind, but when they discovered a defective aortic valve and went in to replace it, they said I had blockage and while in there they were replacing 3 arteries. I was shocked.
Because I had a runner’s heart in great shape, I was walking a mile a day one week after open heart surgery; 3 miles a day 2 weeks after, 5 miles a day 3 weeks after surgery. Running again 13 weeks from surgery.
More BS from the drug industry. The Inuit (Eskimos) have a diet almost 100% fat and they have no heart disease. Or cancer. Eliminate sugar, grains and processed foods.
Several years ago, I suffered a very nearly fatal heart attack, so I find this article interesting.
Many people take one adult aspirin a day which is also said to prevent a heart attack.
I swallow one every morning now.
The best guarantee against heart disease is a high HDL. As close to 100 as you can get it. Best produced by ingesting enough Omega-3’s.
Sheeze, this just ruined me reading more FR
Gotta run to the store, get a gallon of Jamoca Almond Fudge icecream, a large can of cashews, and a pack of smokes.
Back in a 1/2 hr
What then explains their much lower life expectancy?
They live a hard life with polar bears in a frozen wasteland. They do not die from heart disease.
Could be their environment.
Mainly grains and sugar. Eliminate them both from your diet. Eat like a caveman.
Don’t forget the whiskey!
That’s a good one.
But don’t eskimos get most of their fat from fish?
Black men in Chicago have a lower life expectancy. It is related to drugs, crime and gangs. Correlation is not causality.
Next research project: how to totally reverse peripheral neuropathy.
First Nations people and Inuit face some serious health-related challenges, such as high rates of chronic and contagious diseases and shorter life expectancy. For example, 15 per cent of new HIV and AIDS infections occur in Aboriginal people.
Compared to the general Canadian population,* Heart disease is 1.5 times higher;
* Type 2 diabetes is 3 to 5 times higher among First Nations people and rates are increasing among the Inuit
* Tuberculosis infection rates are 8 to 10 times higher.
Yes, their diet is very high in fat from eating foods like whale, seal, and salmon. And other wild game. Almost no carbs. No sugar. No processed foods. No grains. No veggies. No heart disease. No cancer.
You are absolutely correct about the sugar. And more specifically, fructose, especially the high fructose corn syrup.
For those who have heard about what Arlis is saying about sugar, accepted it, but don’t know the details, and nevertheless have allowed themselves to choose to eat it, knowing “it’s bad, but I want it anyway!” (Like I was for too long!) - here is some I-guarantee-you-eye-opening information:
Read anything by Dr. Robert Lustig.
One of our favorites is “Fat Chance.”
There is also a wonderful series of lectures of his which can be found on youtube. In his lecture “The Bitter Truth,” he actually proves that high fructose corn syrup is a long acting poison with 8 out of the 12 problems we associate with the poisoning caused by ethanol (drinking alcohol.)
It is about 1 1/2 hours long. Worth every minute.
You might also want to view “Sugar, the Elephant in the Kitchen.” It is only about 20-23 minutes long.
I am sorry to hear about your recent surgery, but grateful to hear you are well on the way to mending!
Thinking of having a Kaluha and Cream instead
Check out Vitamin K2 MK-7. It does what these people are claiming, according to studies.
They combine on-reserve with off-reserve stats. Alcohol plays a role.

“#1 culprit being sugar.”
I’d call it #2, with wheat, specifically today’s wheat being #1. Stay clear of wheat and 80% of the issues go away (and just to be clear, that includes “whole grain”). Stay clear of processed sugar too, it’s 95%.
I know cavemen didn't eat grains....but they lived in CAVES....
our diets have changed, and we are living longer....we live in buildings and drive cars and send people to the moon....
if the human diet has evolved, so has the human race, for the better....
its like pork....the use of pork as I understand it saved western civilization in Europe...now, in the world, which populations have prospered and grown, and which populations remain in the dark ages (mid east) and who eats pork and who doesn't...???
“but why grains?....why?.....its a perfectly natural food straight from the fields...”
It’s the modifications since made, due to hybridization. There are books on it - it’s bad. For example, wheat used to grow to 6 feet throughout history - until about, now it grows to 18”, and that’s just the part of the physical changes. The chemical changes are horrendous. Look it up.
Raw fish. Green tea.
“What then explains their much lower life expectancy?”
Polar bears will eat you. Manbearpig will give you a heart attack!
You’re late. I just ate a whole pack of Oreos along with a pint of whole milk.
Thought about going down to the donut shop and sending Wide Load a dozen in D.C. since all the heat is off on her proper diets now.
I’d be willing to take any medication that comes out of this research, so long as it doesn’t give me the troubles statins do. I can’t handle the side effects from them.
>> What then explains their much lower life expectancy?
I think there’s a diabetic connection.
“The best guarantee against heart disease is a high HDL. As close to 100 as you can get it. Best produced by ingesting enough Omega-3s.”
More specific EPA, Amarin Corp. is about 2 years in on a 5 year study with their high EPA no DHA purified Fish oil pill. Trigs and inflammation seem to be the real Cardiac issues that need to be resolved which Amarins Vescepa does. Currently Vescepa is only approved for High Trigs over 500, but many Doctors feel anything over 100-150 should be addressed. Amarin is out to prove them right.
See post #21.
I don't know. If I saw one of these while in the arctic wasteland it would probably give me a heart attack.
'Buy one, get one free' at Swanson's right now...
The number one place I order from/ I get so many promos from them and when I can't find one they have ones on facebook too
For heart health I take niacin the kind that gives you a flush....2000mg/day
Niacin is good in other ways too

So buy wheat or flour from a good source and make your own bread or other wheat products
The people with gluten problems should try this. Bread has been the staff of life for a few thousand years with plenty of Biblical mentions
Mending? Sorry I left out that surgery was 5 years ago in June.
Doing fine but arthritis in knees has killed my running days....hate biking and swimming, not sure what to do for cardio other than fast walking - but sure miss my running.......
Not sure about wheat, except processed.....processed anything isn’t good........
Oh wow! 5 years. Congrats on that...but sorry to hear about the arthritis. That is very hard.
You seem quite informed on healthful information, so I imagine you already use natural supplements to support your body with the challenges you have. I’m thinking in particular that everyone, especially heart and arthritis patients, should be sure to have adequate omega 3S. I have also heard that apple pectin is somehow very helpful for arthritis.
Wheat is a poser. I know that probably I should do away with it altogether, but so far I have found that in miniscule amounts, my body can tolerate the occasional indiscretion. Generally for my morning cereal, I use rolled barley, quinoa, bran, flax, and chia seeds. Sometimes I’ll throw in a tablespoon of rolled spelt or oats. Pour hot water, flavor with a 1/4 banana, stevia, and cinnamon, and let it steep for about 15 minutes. Yum.
I agree that processed anything should be used with caution. I guess the ancients had it right: moderation in all things.
We’ve been big into healthy eating, natural supplements for decades. Can’t imagine where we’d be without them. Yes, Omega 3S, glucosamine/chondroitin (saved me 10 years ago when I started to lose mobility to do anything- now virtually painfree.....except for arthritis under kneecaps....actually knees are fine at 69!)
Wife is constantly doing research, adding new discoveries, eliminating ones with problems like fish oil....
The Kanamits are back!
You’ve got it covered! God bless your wife! (and you!)
On the money.
