Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

823: Nina Teicholz Shares Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet

Investigative journalist and New York Times bestselling author Nina Teicholz is our special interview guest today in Episode 823 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After being away from the podcast since late October 2013, our host Jimmy Moore is finally back where he belongs behind the microphone of the longest-running health podcast on the Internet today. While he’s been away writing on his next book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet set to release on August 5, 2014, we’ve been sharing so many amazing guest hosts and LLVLC Show Classic episodes for you to enjoy. But Jimmy is eager to get back to sharing some incredible new interviews with you featuring the top nutrition, health and fitness experts in the world. And with his return today, he comes back with a bang!

Today’s interview guest is an investigative journalist named Nina Teicholz who has written columns for Gourmet magazine, The New Yorker, The Economist, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. After being asked by a publisher to write a book about the health impact of trans fats over a decade ago, Teicholz found a much deeper story that was more salacious and groundbreaking than even she realized at the time–the negative attention saturated fat receives as a culprit in disease was just plain wrong and the unfounded low-fat diet advice has been the most disastrous public health experiment in world history. The culmination of over a decade of research and writing has resulted in the release of her 2014 book The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet that has already hit the New York Times bestsellers list.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Nina discuss why we’ve never heard of her before now, the differences between her book and Gary Taubes’ classic Good Calories, Bad Calories, the history behind how the American Heart Association bought into the anti-saturated fat bias of Ancel Keys, how the anti-sugar work of John Yudkin was mocked and ridiculed by anti-fat proponents, the fraudulent way the Mediterranean diet was created (by Keys) and marketed as “healthy,” how the vilification of tropical oils like coconut oil actually led to the increased use of trans fats, how groups like the Center for the Science in the Public Interest led by Michal Jacobson have had such an influence with good and bad results, the problem with omega-6-rich polyunsaturated fats from vegetable oils producing oxidation products when heated, and so much more! This new book from Nina Teicholz takes the message of Taubes to the next level in a narrative form that makes the notion of a high-fat diet more mainstream that it’s ever been before. The tide is turning and this book is going to be a big reason why. Jimmy’s back and better than ever!

UK-based personal trainer, fat loss expert, and podcaster Sam Feltham guest hosts and interviews real food-based British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra in Episode 787 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

774: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Duane Graveline Warns Of Statin Drug Side Effects

Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 5.20.58 PM

Former NASA scientist-astronaut, medical doctor and anti-statin medication advocate Dr. Duane Graveline is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 774 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today we have a very special LLVLC Show Classic episode to share with you because it features a man whose hearing has now sadly deteriorated to the point that he’s now unable to do interviews anymore to tell his story. Jimmy Moore was privileged to be able to interview him via e-mail for his bestselling 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers? to get his perspective on cholesterol, heart disease and the negative health implications that come from taking statin drugs. He is Dr. Duane Graveline and operates one of the best informational web sites on the Internet about the dangers of the cholesterol-lowering statin medications like Lipitor and Crestor called SpaceDoc.com.

If you’ve read Cholesterol Clarity, then you are already familiar with Dr. Graveline’s sad story about what happened to him when he began taking Lipitor for his “high” cholesterol. Since the original recording of this interview, his condition has gotten progressively worse to the point that he’ll soon be confined to a wheelchair because of statin-induced ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Listen in as you’ll hear Dr. Graveline share his horrifying story of dealing with the aftermath of taking Lipitor and inducing an episode of a condition called global transient amnesia, how statins can cause major, permanent damage to human mitochondrial DNA, resulting in loss of strength, joint pain, and memory loss, the falseness of the cholesterol theory of atherosclerosis, the REAL reason statins may show benefit in dealing with atherosclerosis, why CoQ-10 is a MUST for anyone taking a statin, why you cannot buy a pill with a statin and CoQ-10 together, and a whole lot more! We count it a real privilege to have had the honor to speak with this health champion and are pleased to present this special LLVLC Show Classic episode with you today from deep within our archives.

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

823: Nina Teicholz Shares Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet

Investigative journalist and New York Times bestselling author Nina Teicholz is our special interview guest today in Episode 823 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After being away from the podcast since late October 2013, our host Jimmy Moore is finally back where he belongs behind the microphone of the longest-running health podcast on the Internet today. While he’s been away writing on his next book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet set to release on August 5, 2014, we’ve been sharing so many amazing guest hosts and LLVLC Show Classic episodes for you to enjoy. But Jimmy is eager to get back to sharing some incredible new interviews with you featuring the top nutrition, health and fitness experts in the world. And with his return today, he comes back with a bang!

Today’s interview guest is an investigative journalist named Nina Teicholz who has written columns for Gourmet magazine, The New Yorker, The Economist, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. After being asked by a publisher to write a book about the health impact of trans fats over a decade ago, Teicholz found a much deeper story that was more salacious and groundbreaking than even she realized at the time–the negative attention saturated fat receives as a culprit in disease was just plain wrong and the unfounded low-fat diet advice has been the most disastrous public health experiment in world history. The culmination of over a decade of research and writing has resulted in the release of her 2014 book The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet that has already hit the New York Times bestsellers list.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Nina discuss why we’ve never heard of her before now, the differences between her book and Gary Taubes’ classic Good Calories, Bad Calories, the history behind how the American Heart Association bought into the anti-saturated fat bias of Ancel Keys, how the anti-sugar work of John Yudkin was mocked and ridiculed by anti-fat proponents, the fraudulent way the Mediterranean diet was created (by Keys) and marketed as “healthy,” how the vilification of tropical oils like coconut oil actually led to the increased use of trans fats, how groups like the Center for the Science in the Public Interest led by Michal Jacobson have had such an influence with good and bad results, the problem with omega-6-rich polyunsaturated fats from vegetable oils producing oxidation products when heated, and so much more! This new book from Nina Teicholz takes the message of Taubes to the next level in a narrative form that makes the notion of a high-fat diet more mainstream that it’s ever been before. The tide is turning and this book is going to be a big reason why. Jimmy’s back and better than ever!

UK-based personal trainer, fat loss expert, and podcaster Sam Feltham guest hosts and interviews real food-based British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra in Episode 787 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

774: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Duane Graveline Warns Of Statin Drug Side Effects

Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 5.20.58 PM

Former NASA scientist-astronaut, medical doctor and anti-statin medication advocate Dr. Duane Graveline is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 774 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today we have a very special LLVLC Show Classic episode to share with you because it features a man whose hearing has now sadly deteriorated to the point that he’s now unable to do interviews anymore to tell his story. Jimmy Moore was privileged to be able to interview him via e-mail for his bestselling 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers? to get his perspective on cholesterol, heart disease and the negative health implications that come from taking statin drugs. He is Dr. Duane Graveline and operates one of the best informational web sites on the Internet about the dangers of the cholesterol-lowering statin medications like Lipitor and Crestor called SpaceDoc.com.

If you’ve read Cholesterol Clarity, then you are already familiar with Dr. Graveline’s sad story about what happened to him when he began taking Lipitor for his “high” cholesterol. Since the original recording of this interview, his condition has gotten progressively worse to the point that he’ll soon be confined to a wheelchair because of statin-induced ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Listen in as you’ll hear Dr. Graveline share his horrifying story of dealing with the aftermath of taking Lipitor and inducing an episode of a condition called global transient amnesia, how statins can cause major, permanent damage to human mitochondrial DNA, resulting in loss of strength, joint pain, and memory loss, the falseness of the cholesterol theory of atherosclerosis, the REAL reason statins may show benefit in dealing with atherosclerosis, why CoQ-10 is a MUST for anyone taking a statin, why you cannot buy a pill with a statin and CoQ-10 together, and a whole lot more! We count it a real privilege to have had the honor to speak with this health champion and are pleased to present this special LLVLC Show Classic episode with you today from deep within our archives.

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

823: Nina Teicholz Shares Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet

Investigative journalist and New York Times bestselling author Nina Teicholz is our special interview guest today in Episode 823 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After being away from the podcast since late October 2013, our host Jimmy Moore is finally back where he belongs behind the microphone of the longest-running health podcast on the Internet today. While he’s been away writing on his next book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet set to release on August 5, 2014, we’ve been sharing so many amazing guest hosts and LLVLC Show Classic episodes for you to enjoy. But Jimmy is eager to get back to sharing some incredible new interviews with you featuring the top nutrition, health and fitness experts in the world. And with his return today, he comes back with a bang!

Today’s interview guest is an investigative journalist named Nina Teicholz who has written columns for Gourmet magazine, The New Yorker, The Economist, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. After being asked by a publisher to write a book about the health impact of trans fats over a decade ago, Teicholz found a much deeper story that was more salacious and groundbreaking than even she realized at the time–the negative attention saturated fat receives as a culprit in disease was just plain wrong and the unfounded low-fat diet advice has been the most disastrous public health experiment in world history. The culmination of over a decade of research and writing has resulted in the release of her 2014 book The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet that has already hit the New York Times bestsellers list.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Nina discuss why we’ve never heard of her before now, the differences between her book and Gary Taubes’ classic Good Calories, Bad Calories, the history behind how the American Heart Association bought into the anti-saturated fat bias of Ancel Keys, how the anti-sugar work of John Yudkin was mocked and ridiculed by anti-fat proponents, the fraudulent way the Mediterranean diet was created (by Keys) and marketed as “healthy,” how the vilification of tropical oils like coconut oil actually led to the increased use of trans fats, how groups like the Center for the Science in the Public Interest led by Michal Jacobson have had such an influence with good and bad results, the problem with omega-6-rich polyunsaturated fats from vegetable oils producing oxidation products when heated, and so much more! This new book from Nina Teicholz takes the message of Taubes to the next level in a narrative form that makes the notion of a high-fat diet more mainstream that it’s ever been before. The tide is turning and this book is going to be a big reason why. Jimmy’s back and better than ever!

UK-based personal trainer, fat loss expert, and podcaster Sam Feltham guest hosts and interviews real food-based British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra in Episode 787 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

774: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Duane Graveline Warns Of Statin Drug Side Effects

Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 5.20.58 PM

Former NASA scientist-astronaut, medical doctor and anti-statin medication advocate Dr. Duane Graveline is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 774 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today we have a very special LLVLC Show Classic episode to share with you because it features a man whose hearing has now sadly deteriorated to the point that he’s now unable to do interviews anymore to tell his story. Jimmy Moore was privileged to be able to interview him via e-mail for his bestselling 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers? to get his perspective on cholesterol, heart disease and the negative health implications that come from taking statin drugs. He is Dr. Duane Graveline and operates one of the best informational web sites on the Internet about the dangers of the cholesterol-lowering statin medications like Lipitor and Crestor called SpaceDoc.com.

If you’ve read Cholesterol Clarity, then you are already familiar with Dr. Graveline’s sad story about what happened to him when he began taking Lipitor for his “high” cholesterol. Since the original recording of this interview, his condition has gotten progressively worse to the point that he’ll soon be confined to a wheelchair because of statin-induced ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Listen in as you’ll hear Dr. Graveline share his horrifying story of dealing with the aftermath of taking Lipitor and inducing an episode of a condition called global transient amnesia, how statins can cause major, permanent damage to human mitochondrial DNA, resulting in loss of strength, joint pain, and memory loss, the falseness of the cholesterol theory of atherosclerosis, the REAL reason statins may show benefit in dealing with atherosclerosis, why CoQ-10 is a MUST for anyone taking a statin, why you cannot buy a pill with a statin and CoQ-10 together, and a whole lot more! We count it a real privilege to have had the honor to speak with this health champion and are pleased to present this special LLVLC Show Classic episode with you today from deep within our archives.

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

823: Nina Teicholz Shares Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet

Investigative journalist and New York Times bestselling author Nina Teicholz is our special interview guest today in Episode 823 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After being away from the podcast since late October 2013, our host Jimmy Moore is finally back where he belongs behind the microphone of the longest-running health podcast on the Internet today. While he’s been away writing on his next book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet set to release on August 5, 2014, we’ve been sharing so many amazing guest hosts and LLVLC Show Classic episodes for you to enjoy. But Jimmy is eager to get back to sharing some incredible new interviews with you featuring the top nutrition, health and fitness experts in the world. And with his return today, he comes back with a bang!

Today’s interview guest is an investigative journalist named Nina Teicholz who has written columns for Gourmet magazine, The New Yorker, The Economist, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. After being asked by a publisher to write a book about the health impact of trans fats over a decade ago, Teicholz found a much deeper story that was more salacious and groundbreaking than even she realized at the time–the negative attention saturated fat receives as a culprit in disease was just plain wrong and the unfounded low-fat diet advice has been the most disastrous public health experiment in world history. The culmination of over a decade of research and writing has resulted in the release of her 2014 book The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet that has already hit the New York Times bestsellers list.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Nina discuss why we’ve never heard of her before now, the differences between her book and Gary Taubes’ classic Good Calories, Bad Calories, the history behind how the American Heart Association bought into the anti-saturated fat bias of Ancel Keys, how the anti-sugar work of John Yudkin was mocked and ridiculed by anti-fat proponents, the fraudulent way the Mediterranean diet was created (by Keys) and marketed as “healthy,” how the vilification of tropical oils like coconut oil actually led to the increased use of trans fats, how groups like the Center for the Science in the Public Interest led by Michal Jacobson have had such an influence with good and bad results, the problem with omega-6-rich polyunsaturated fats from vegetable oils producing oxidation products when heated, and so much more! This new book from Nina Teicholz takes the message of Taubes to the next level in a narrative form that makes the notion of a high-fat diet more mainstream that it’s ever been before. The tide is turning and this book is going to be a big reason why. Jimmy’s back and better than ever!

UK-based personal trainer, fat loss expert, and podcaster Sam Feltham guest hosts and interviews real food-based British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra in Episode 787 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

774: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Duane Graveline Warns Of Statin Drug Side Effects

Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 5.20.58 PM

Former NASA scientist-astronaut, medical doctor and anti-statin medication advocate Dr. Duane Graveline is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 774 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today we have a very special LLVLC Show Classic episode to share with you because it features a man whose hearing has now sadly deteriorated to the point that he’s now unable to do interviews anymore to tell his story. Jimmy Moore was privileged to be able to interview him via e-mail for his bestselling 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers? to get his perspective on cholesterol, heart disease and the negative health implications that come from taking statin drugs. He is Dr. Duane Graveline and operates one of the best informational web sites on the Internet about the dangers of the cholesterol-lowering statin medications like Lipitor and Crestor called SpaceDoc.com.

If you’ve read Cholesterol Clarity, then you are already familiar with Dr. Graveline’s sad story about what happened to him when he began taking Lipitor for his “high” cholesterol. Since the original recording of this interview, his condition has gotten progressively worse to the point that he’ll soon be confined to a wheelchair because of statin-induced ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Listen in as you’ll hear Dr. Graveline share his horrifying story of dealing with the aftermath of taking Lipitor and inducing an episode of a condition called global transient amnesia, how statins can cause major, permanent damage to human mitochondrial DNA, resulting in loss of strength, joint pain, and memory loss, the falseness of the cholesterol theory of atherosclerosis, the REAL reason statins may show benefit in dealing with atherosclerosis, why CoQ-10 is a MUST for anyone taking a statin, why you cannot buy a pill with a statin and CoQ-10 together, and a whole lot more! We count it a real privilege to have had the honor to speak with this health champion and are pleased to present this special LLVLC Show Classic episode with you today from deep within our archives.

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

823: Nina Teicholz Shares Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet

Investigative journalist and New York Times bestselling author Nina Teicholz is our special interview guest today in Episode 823 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After being away from the podcast since late October 2013, our host Jimmy Moore is finally back where he belongs behind the microphone of the longest-running health podcast on the Internet today. While he’s been away writing on his next book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet set to release on August 5, 2014, we’ve been sharing so many amazing guest hosts and LLVLC Show Classic episodes for you to enjoy. But Jimmy is eager to get back to sharing some incredible new interviews with you featuring the top nutrition, health and fitness experts in the world. And with his return today, he comes back with a bang!

Today’s interview guest is an investigative journalist named Nina Teicholz who has written columns for Gourmet magazine, The New Yorker, The Economist, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. After being asked by a publisher to write a book about the health impact of trans fats over a decade ago, Teicholz found a much deeper story that was more salacious and groundbreaking than even she realized at the time–the negative attention saturated fat receives as a culprit in disease was just plain wrong and the unfounded low-fat diet advice has been the most disastrous public health experiment in world history. The culmination of over a decade of research and writing has resulted in the release of her 2014 book The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet that has already hit the New York Times bestsellers list.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Nina discuss why we’ve never heard of her before now, the differences between her book and Gary Taubes’ classic Good Calories, Bad Calories, the history behind how the American Heart Association bought into the anti-saturated fat bias of Ancel Keys, how the anti-sugar work of John Yudkin was mocked and ridiculed by anti-fat proponents, the fraudulent way the Mediterranean diet was created (by Keys) and marketed as “healthy,” how the vilification of tropical oils like coconut oil actually led to the increased use of trans fats, how groups like the Center for the Science in the Public Interest led by Michal Jacobson have had such an influence with good and bad results, the problem with omega-6-rich polyunsaturated fats from vegetable oils producing oxidation products when heated, and so much more! This new book from Nina Teicholz takes the message of Taubes to the next level in a narrative form that makes the notion of a high-fat diet more mainstream that it’s ever been before. The tide is turning and this book is going to be a big reason why. Jimmy’s back and better than ever!

UK-based personal trainer, fat loss expert, and podcaster Sam Feltham guest hosts and interviews real food-based British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra in Episode 787 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

774: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Duane Graveline Warns Of Statin Drug Side Effects

Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 5.20.58 PM

Former NASA scientist-astronaut, medical doctor and anti-statin medication advocate Dr. Duane Graveline is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 774 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today we have a very special LLVLC Show Classic episode to share with you because it features a man whose hearing has now sadly deteriorated to the point that he’s now unable to do interviews anymore to tell his story. Jimmy Moore was privileged to be able to interview him via e-mail for his bestselling 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers? to get his perspective on cholesterol, heart disease and the negative health implications that come from taking statin drugs. He is Dr. Duane Graveline and operates one of the best informational web sites on the Internet about the dangers of the cholesterol-lowering statin medications like Lipitor and Crestor called SpaceDoc.com.

If you’ve read Cholesterol Clarity, then you are already familiar with Dr. Graveline’s sad story about what happened to him when he began taking Lipitor for his “high” cholesterol. Since the original recording of this interview, his condition has gotten progressively worse to the point that he’ll soon be confined to a wheelchair because of statin-induced ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Listen in as you’ll hear Dr. Graveline share his horrifying story of dealing with the aftermath of taking Lipitor and inducing an episode of a condition called global transient amnesia, how statins can cause major, permanent damage to human mitochondrial DNA, resulting in loss of strength, joint pain, and memory loss, the falseness of the cholesterol theory of atherosclerosis, the REAL reason statins may show benefit in dealing with atherosclerosis, why CoQ-10 is a MUST for anyone taking a statin, why you cannot buy a pill with a statin and CoQ-10 together, and a whole lot more! We count it a real privilege to have had the honor to speak with this health champion and are pleased to present this special LLVLC Show Classic episode with you today from deep within our archives.

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

823: Nina Teicholz Shares Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet

Investigative journalist and New York Times bestselling author Nina Teicholz is our special interview guest today in Episode 823 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After being away from the podcast since late October 2013, our host Jimmy Moore is finally back where he belongs behind the microphone of the longest-running health podcast on the Internet today. While he’s been away writing on his next book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet set to release on August 5, 2014, we’ve been sharing so many amazing guest hosts and LLVLC Show Classic episodes for you to enjoy. But Jimmy is eager to get back to sharing some incredible new interviews with you featuring the top nutrition, health and fitness experts in the world. And with his return today, he comes back with a bang!

Today’s interview guest is an investigative journalist named Nina Teicholz who has written columns for Gourmet magazine, The New Yorker, The Economist, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. After being asked by a publisher to write a book about the health impact of trans fats over a decade ago, Teicholz found a much deeper story that was more salacious and groundbreaking than even she realized at the time–the negative attention saturated fat receives as a culprit in disease was just plain wrong and the unfounded low-fat diet advice has been the most disastrous public health experiment in world history. The culmination of over a decade of research and writing has resulted in the release of her 2014 book The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet that has already hit the New York Times bestsellers list.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Nina discuss why we’ve never heard of her before now, the differences between her book and Gary Taubes’ classic Good Calories, Bad Calories, the history behind how the American Heart Association bought into the anti-saturated fat bias of Ancel Keys, how the anti-sugar work of John Yudkin was mocked and ridiculed by anti-fat proponents, the fraudulent way the Mediterranean diet was created (by Keys) and marketed as “healthy,” how the vilification of tropical oils like coconut oil actually led to the increased use of trans fats, how groups like the Center for the Science in the Public Interest led by Michal Jacobson have had such an influence with good and bad results, the problem with omega-6-rich polyunsaturated fats from vegetable oils producing oxidation products when heated, and so much more! This new book from Nina Teicholz takes the message of Taubes to the next level in a narrative form that makes the notion of a high-fat diet more mainstream that it’s ever been before. The tide is turning and this book is going to be a big reason why. Jimmy’s back and better than ever!

UK-based personal trainer, fat loss expert, and podcaster Sam Feltham guest hosts and interviews real food-based British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra in Episode 787 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

774: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Duane Graveline Warns Of Statin Drug Side Effects

Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 5.20.58 PM

Former NASA scientist-astronaut, medical doctor and anti-statin medication advocate Dr. Duane Graveline is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 774 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today we have a very special LLVLC Show Classic episode to share with you because it features a man whose hearing has now sadly deteriorated to the point that he’s now unable to do interviews anymore to tell his story. Jimmy Moore was privileged to be able to interview him via e-mail for his bestselling 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers? to get his perspective on cholesterol, heart disease and the negative health implications that come from taking statin drugs. He is Dr. Duane Graveline and operates one of the best informational web sites on the Internet about the dangers of the cholesterol-lowering statin medications like Lipitor and Crestor called SpaceDoc.com.

If you’ve read Cholesterol Clarity, then you are already familiar with Dr. Graveline’s sad story about what happened to him when he began taking Lipitor for his “high” cholesterol. Since the original recording of this interview, his condition has gotten progressively worse to the point that he’ll soon be confined to a wheelchair because of statin-induced ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Listen in as you’ll hear Dr. Graveline share his horrifying story of dealing with the aftermath of taking Lipitor and inducing an episode of a condition called global transient amnesia, how statins can cause major, permanent damage to human mitochondrial DNA, resulting in loss of strength, joint pain, and memory loss, the falseness of the cholesterol theory of atherosclerosis, the REAL reason statins may show benefit in dealing with atherosclerosis, why CoQ-10 is a MUST for anyone taking a statin, why you cannot buy a pill with a statin and CoQ-10 together, and a whole lot more! We count it a real privilege to have had the honor to speak with this health champion and are pleased to present this special LLVLC Show Classic episode with you today from deep within our archives.

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

823: Nina Teicholz Shares Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet

Investigative journalist and New York Times bestselling author Nina Teicholz is our special interview guest today in Episode 823 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After being away from the podcast since late October 2013, our host Jimmy Moore is finally back where he belongs behind the microphone of the longest-running health podcast on the Internet today. While he’s been away writing on his next book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet set to release on August 5, 2014, we’ve been sharing so many amazing guest hosts and LLVLC Show Classic episodes for you to enjoy. But Jimmy is eager to get back to sharing some incredible new interviews with you featuring the top nutrition, health and fitness experts in the world. And with his return today, he comes back with a bang!

Today’s interview guest is an investigative journalist named Nina Teicholz who has written columns for Gourmet magazine, The New Yorker, The Economist, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. After being asked by a publisher to write a book about the health impact of trans fats over a decade ago, Teicholz found a much deeper story that was more salacious and groundbreaking than even she realized at the time–the negative attention saturated fat receives as a culprit in disease was just plain wrong and the unfounded low-fat diet advice has been the most disastrous public health experiment in world history. The culmination of over a decade of research and writing has resulted in the release of her 2014 book The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet that has already hit the New York Times bestsellers list.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Nina discuss why we’ve never heard of her before now, the differences between her book and Gary Taubes’ classic Good Calories, Bad Calories, the history behind how the American Heart Association bought into the anti-saturated fat bias of Ancel Keys, how the anti-sugar work of John Yudkin was mocked and ridiculed by anti-fat proponents, the fraudulent way the Mediterranean diet was created (by Keys) and marketed as “healthy,” how the vilification of tropical oils like coconut oil actually led to the increased use of trans fats, how groups like the Center for the Science in the Public Interest led by Michal Jacobson have had such an influence with good and bad results, the problem with omega-6-rich polyunsaturated fats from vegetable oils producing oxidation products when heated, and so much more! This new book from Nina Teicholz takes the message of Taubes to the next level in a narrative form that makes the notion of a high-fat diet more mainstream that it’s ever been before. The tide is turning and this book is going to be a big reason why. Jimmy’s back and better than ever!

UK-based personal trainer, fat loss expert, and podcaster Sam Feltham guest hosts and interviews real food-based British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra in Episode 787 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

774: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Duane Graveline Warns Of Statin Drug Side Effects

Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 5.20.58 PM

Former NASA scientist-astronaut, medical doctor and anti-statin medication advocate Dr. Duane Graveline is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 774 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today we have a very special LLVLC Show Classic episode to share with you because it features a man whose hearing has now sadly deteriorated to the point that he’s now unable to do interviews anymore to tell his story. Jimmy Moore was privileged to be able to interview him via e-mail for his bestselling 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers? to get his perspective on cholesterol, heart disease and the negative health implications that come from taking statin drugs. He is Dr. Duane Graveline and operates one of the best informational web sites on the Internet about the dangers of the cholesterol-lowering statin medications like Lipitor and Crestor called SpaceDoc.com.

If you’ve read Cholesterol Clarity, then you are already familiar with Dr. Graveline’s sad story about what happened to him when he began taking Lipitor for his “high” cholesterol. Since the original recording of this interview, his condition has gotten progressively worse to the point that he’ll soon be confined to a wheelchair because of statin-induced ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Listen in as you’ll hear Dr. Graveline share his horrifying story of dealing with the aftermath of taking Lipitor and inducing an episode of a condition called global transient amnesia, how statins can cause major, permanent damage to human mitochondrial DNA, resulting in loss of strength, joint pain, and memory loss, the falseness of the cholesterol theory of atherosclerosis, the REAL reason statins may show benefit in dealing with atherosclerosis, why CoQ-10 is a MUST for anyone taking a statin, why you cannot buy a pill with a statin and CoQ-10 together, and a whole lot more! We count it a real privilege to have had the honor to speak with this health champion and are pleased to present this special LLVLC Show Classic episode with you today from deep within our archives.

843: Ivor Cummins Brings An Engineering Approach To Solving Health Problems

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 11.35.14 AM

Dublin, Ireland-based chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 843 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

So many people come to the low-carb way of eating out of necessity because of a personal weight and/or health crisis. And when they do, all of the skills and experience they have gathered up to that point in their life start to kick in to provide a unique take on what actions are necessary to become healthy and fit again. That’s exactly what happened to an Irish chemical engineer named Ivor Cummins from “The Fat Emperor” blog who began having some issues with his health when a few blood tests came back as less than optimal. When Ivor put on his engineering cap to apply that methodical approach to solving his personal health problems, he researched and examined all the evidence involved in raising inflammation and cholesterol levels and what he discovered was astonishing to him. He read over 200 studies and came to the conclusion that what we have been doing to treat things like high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome have been wrong–DEAD WRONG!

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Ivor talk about how he’s always thought in a “very technical” manner, the high iron, GGT, and cholesterol levels that caught the attention of his doctors, how he started digging through the research on ferritin and GTT which he traced back to carbohydrate intake, how he got deep into looking into several hundred studies on cholesterol that intrigued him, why he started doing seminars and creating videos to help educate people about the low-carb answer to most of today’s chronic health issues, why he used to think the food quality issue wasn’t a big deal, the mass industrialization of food hasn’t occurred in Ireland yet, why his videos are very long and extremely detailed, how Dr. Robert Lustig’s 90-minute “Sugar: The Bigger Truth” video has nearly 5 million views, the response and feedback he’s received from his videos, how his health has improved and changed since going low-carb ketogenic, how he can “sense” being in ketosis, whether he will start testing ketones for a future lecture/video, predictions about when the low-carb message will be fully embraced, how Dr. Atkins was ahead of the nutritional curve decades ago, why keeping your mind open about nutritional science is critical to progressing, and the topics he has on his radar screen (including insulin) next. This is an awesome conversation!

840: Dr. Ronesh Sinha Taking Wellness To South Asians In Silicon Valley

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.27.46 AM

Silicon Valley-based internal medicine physician, health blogger, podcaster and author Dr. Ronesh Sinha is our interview guest today in Episode 840 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Primal superstar Mark Sisson has been busy lining up brand new authors for his Primal Blueprint Publishing company who have something to contribute to the health discussion. While not all of them have a claim to fame with a name everyone in the Paleo community would recognize (save Denise Minger), they all have something special and unique to contribute. That certainly describes today’s interview guest, Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is an internal medicine physician for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where he treats high risk patients from South Asia to help put them back on the path of wellness again. Because there is such an epidemic of excessive stress and inevitable health calamity amongst these highly-intelligent Silicon Valley technology geeks, Dr. Ron is targeting them in his brand new book from Primal Blueprint Publishing entitled The South Asian Health Solution: A Culturally Tailored Guide to Lose Fat, Increase Energy and Avoid Disease.

Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book is chock full of information for ANYONE who is dealing with chronic weight and health issues today. Listen in to hear Jimmy and Dr. Ron have an insightful conversation about why he has such a heart for reaching the South Asian community in Silicon Valley, his own personal struggles with metabolic syndrome and how he overcame it, the epidemic of insulin resistance patients that he see in diverse populations, the health impact of working in a high-tech, sedentary job, the creative way he uses apps and other technologies to engage and motivate his patients to become well again, how stress has increased cardiovascular disease risk exponentially in Silicon Valley despite “normal” health numbers, why inflammation is the real culprit in many of the chronic health issues people in a high-stress work environment deal with, his work educating his fellow doctors, insurance companies and employers in shifting their thinking on nutrition and health, and the mobile medical van he created to go directly to companies to service the health needs of their employees. This is an incredible interview with a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more about in the coming years!

823: Nina Teicholz Shares Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet

Investigative journalist and New York Times bestselling author Nina Teicholz is our special interview guest today in Episode 823 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

After being away from the podcast since late October 2013, our host Jimmy Moore is finally back where he belongs behind the microphone of the longest-running health podcast on the Internet today. While he’s been away writing on his next book Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet set to release on August 5, 2014, we’ve been sharing so many amazing guest hosts and LLVLC Show Classic episodes for you to enjoy. But Jimmy is eager to get back to sharing some incredible new interviews with you featuring the top nutrition, health and fitness experts in the world. And with his return today, he comes back with a bang!

Today’s interview guest is an investigative journalist named Nina Teicholz who has written columns for Gourmet magazine, The New Yorker, The Economist, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. After being asked by a publisher to write a book about the health impact of trans fats over a decade ago, Teicholz found a much deeper story that was more salacious and groundbreaking than even she realized at the time–the negative attention saturated fat receives as a culprit in disease was just plain wrong and the unfounded low-fat diet advice has been the most disastrous public health experiment in world history. The culmination of over a decade of research and writing has resulted in the release of her 2014 book The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet that has already hit the New York Times bestsellers list.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Nina discuss why we’ve never heard of her before now, the differences between her book and Gary Taubes’ classic Good Calories, Bad Calories, the history behind how the American Heart Association bought into the anti-saturated fat bias of Ancel Keys, how the anti-sugar work of John Yudkin was mocked and ridiculed by anti-fat proponents, the fraudulent way the Mediterranean diet was created (by Keys) and marketed as “healthy,” how the vilification of tropical oils like coconut oil actually led to the increased use of trans fats, how groups like the Center for the Science in the Public Interest led by Michal Jacobson have had such an influence with good and bad results, the problem with omega-6-rich polyunsaturated fats from vegetable oils producing oxidation products when heated, and so much more! This new book from Nina Teicholz takes the message of Taubes to the next level in a narrative form that makes the notion of a high-fat diet more mainstream that it’s ever been before. The tide is turning and this book is going to be a big reason why. Jimmy’s back and better than ever!

787: Guest Host Sam Feltham With Dr. Aseem Malhotra On Toxic Sugar And Healthy Fat

Screen Shot 2014-03-02 at 5.36.43 PM

UK-based personal trainer, fat loss expert, and podcaster Sam Feltham guest hosts and interviews real food-based British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra in Episode 787 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

You probably remember today’s guest host from his conversation with Jimmy last year in Episode 739 discussing his amazing 5,000-calorie self-experiments testing the flawed calorie hypothesis. His name is Sam Feltham from “Smash The Fat” and accompanying iTunes health podcast and he’s here today presenting a sensational interview with a nutrition-minded cardiologist and writer named Dr. Aseem Malhotra who made headlines in October 2013 when he published a paper in the British Medical Journal entitled “Saturated Fat Is Not The Major Issue” that pulled the rug out from under the low-fat nutritional lie we have been fed for the past three decades. Listen in as Sam and Dr. Malhotra discuss the paradigm shift happening with saturated fat, the failure of the obesity initiatives that have been proposed by mainstream health experts, and why his Action On Sugar coalition is needed to educate the public on the dangers of sugar on health. This is an insightful conversation you won’t want to miss!

774: LLVLC Classic – Dr. Duane Graveline Warns Of Statin Drug Side Effects

Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 5.20.58 PM

Former NASA scientist-astronaut, medical doctor and anti-statin medication advocate Dr. Duane Graveline is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives in Episode 774 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Today we have a very special LLVLC Show Classic episode to share with you because it features a man whose hearing has now sadly deteriorated to the point that he’s now unable to do interviews anymore to tell his story. Jimmy Moore was privileged to be able to interview him via e-mail for his bestselling 2013 book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers? to get his perspective on cholesterol, heart disease and the negative health implications that come from taking statin drugs. He is Dr. Duane Graveline and operates one of the best informational web sites on the Internet about the dangers of the cholesterol-lowering statin medications like Lipitor and Crestor called SpaceDoc.com.

If you’ve read Cholesterol Clarity, then you are already familiar with Dr. Graveline’s sad story about what happened to him when he began taking Lipitor for his “high” cholesterol. Since the original recording of this interview, his condition has gotten progressively worse to the point that he’ll soon be confined to a wheelchair because of statin-induced ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Listen in as you’ll hear Dr. Graveline share his horrifying story of dealing with the aftermath of taking Lipitor and inducing an episode of a condition called global transient amnesia, how statins can cause major, permanent damage to human mitochondrial DNA, resulting in loss of strength, joint pain, and memory loss, the falseness of the cholesterol theory of atherosclerosis, the REAL reason statins may show benefit in dealing with atherosclerosis, why CoQ-10 is a MUST for anyone taking a statin, why you cannot buy a pill with a statin and CoQ-10 together, and a whole lot more! We count it a real privilege to have had the honor to speak with this health champion and are pleased to present this special LLVLC Show Classic episode with you today from deep within our archives.
