| November 30, 2012 | Comments (1)

This proves to me that conventional wisdom still has it all wrong when it comes to the prevention of heart disease: I encounter a steady stream of people in real life who exhibit a certain set of characteristics: they are men who by all measures are regarded as healthy, apart from the fact that they […]

Saturated Fat Not The Villain It’s Made Out To Be

| October 3, 2012 | Comments (0)

When it comes to nutritional approaches to preventing heart disease, perhaps the most consistent piece of advice we’ve been given by health professionals and governments is to avoid saturated fat. This type of fat, found in foods such as meat, eggs and dairy products, is claimed to push up blood levels of cholesterol, which in […]

No Good Evidence To Support The Polypill

| July 23, 2012 | Comments (0)

More than a decade ago, some British researchers put forward the idea of a ‘polypill’ – a combination medication designed with the prevention of cardiovascular problems, such as heart disease and stroke, in mind.

| May 17, 2012 | Comments (4)

The two main lipoproteins are so-called low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-cholesterol) and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-cholesterol).

Fibrates — When The Drugs Don’t Work

| August 22, 2011 | Comments (0)

Fibrates are drugs that lower levels of ‘unhealthy’ triglycerides, while at the same time boosting levels of HDL cholesterol (which is associated with reduced heart disease risk).
