What causes heart disease?

I'm going to be moving all of the parts to this continuing saga from my old forum to this one, but I can't say how long it will take me to complete this chore because there are, up to now, 34 parts!  I am just going to copy them the way they were posted because these started back in January of 2016 and it would be hard to rewrite headings for all 34 parts.    This series, however, is HIGHLY EDUCATIONAL and you will learn a tremendous amount of information by reading all the parts.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Interesting.  I am getting so I HATE Wordpress because it just takes for-evvvvver to open the pages. Argggh!

Re: What causes heart disease?

This was a post from Sylvia on January 26, 2016.

"not a single person died of Ischaemic Heart Disease before 1948. Amazing.

What was protecting them? [Dying from IHD is what you would also call a heart attack, or MI]. What was protecting them was the fact that IHD did not exist in the US as a disease classification, before 1948.

This then changed. In 1948 the World Health Organisation was created, and one of the first things they did was to create an International Disease Classification system (ICD). Heart disease is 1. Cancer is 2. "

Ahh a rose by any other name... The ICD codes are what is used for billing to the insurance companies and Medicare/Medicaid.

Re: What causes heart disease?

Part 20. This keeps getting more and more fascinating all the time. (Love the part where he calls the dood an idiot!). He, like me, does not believe that genetics is the ONLY factor involved in disease, in fact, far from it. As I've said before - I'm not my Dad or my sister yada yada. Each person is an individual and while I believe some things are genetic to a degree, I certainly do not buy into the bargain basement explanation of it being responsible for all our good and bad traits.

No way.

Re: What causes heart disease?

Saturated fat and heart disease, is it a "thing"?

Nope.

https://drmalcolmkendrick.org/2016/10/20/saturated-fat-and-heart-disease/

Contrary to everything modern medicine will tell you, your body needs saturated fats in order to function properly. It will take a century before people start to believe this, however, because they are "programmed" to believe otherwise. What a damned shame. Who knows how many people will die for a lack of good and decent information, and taking Rx drugs that just make things worse. A good many, you can be sure of that. The lies of modern medicine are not easily erased. It's the same when you tell people about the harm of vaccinations, or how our bodies actually NEED salt, etc. A long row to hoe to get people's attention in these matters.

Re: What causes heart disease?

Sure wish someone could pass this information along to Neil Cavuto. I heard him and Charlie Gasparino talking about "diets" yesterday on Cavuto's tv show and it was enough to make me scream at the tv (this is why I rarely watch tv but I wanted to catch up on what's happening with Trump in the last few days). Those two guys are still afraid of meat, eggs, milk, cream, FAT of any kind - - it's enough to make one want to write them a letter and point them to a few reasons why that whole "my cardiologist says I should eat this but not this" is senseless, meaningless crap. And then I'd like to send this info (actually this whole thread of information we've got going here) from Dr. Kendrick to those stupid cardiologists. They still think if food has any flavor, other than cardboard flavor, it's gotta be bad for you. Jesus H. What a bunch of over-educated, under common-sensed idiots. Arrrrggggg!

UPDATE: Below is a great article by Dr. Suzanne Humphries (I found it in the reader comment section of the above linked article by Dr. Kendrick). I'm going to also post it in the General Health topic here at this forum because I think LOTS of people should read it. Pass it on.

Re: What causes heart disease?

Here's part 26.

https://drmalcolmkendrick.org/2017/02/15/what-causes-heart-disease-part-xxvi/

The vid that went with this article isn't working (at least not for me, you have to sign in and I am not going there!) so I did an independent search and came up with two possible vid's that might be the one Dr. Kendrick included in his short article in part 26.

The first vid I had posted at the old forum would not open (said it was no longer available, imagine that).  I had also posted this one in my post at the old forum, and it played for me (hopefully it will play for a while yet).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHiiOa18S_g

This one just sounds interesting because of the salt aspect. BTW this was done in Davos but it was 4 years ago.

You will have to let me know what you think of his "theory". I'm especially interested in his theory vs the theory provided by WAPF. https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/thepolkadotapron/forum_data/forums.th/thep/thepolkadotapron/smilies/1.gif

I know. The link makes it look like this is part 18, but in the series as written so far, it would be part 28. Of course, as usual, the damn blog isn't dated so I had to check on the reader comments to try to guess the approximate release date and today seems to fit.

I don't understand why bloggers, even DOCTORS, can't put a simple date on their work and why they don't understand the Roman numeral system. It's quite frightening, actually.

Interesting.

*** More on his article last time on alcohol. Some people who write to him are ridiculously stupid. Keep reading and find out what I mean. It's really pretty simple - - if you don't like or want alcohol, don't drink the stuff, good God. How can people be so damn stupid?

Alcohol can be good for you, are they NOT getting it??

Re: What causes heart disease?

Sounds to me like "science" and the "fake media" (which includes all media, IMO) have been colluding for years to spread misinformation far and wide.

https://drmalcolmkendrick.org/2017/04/26/tim-noakes-found-not-guilty-of-something-or-other/

I still believe in a high fat diet, always have. But I'm not convinced that carbs, in moderation (not just "low" but in moderation on a daily basis - because every day is different) are the culprit people keep claiming them to be. Truthfully, I think more people need to take long walks, eat lots of good animal fats, well-raised meats, and not worry too much about the rest. But that's just me.

Re: What causes heart disease?

What about those creepy statins?? They remain creepy by massaging the English language to a point of non-meaning. This is a favorite trick of the phRMa companies. With them, everything gets a whole new meaning whenever they want to change the game.

Some of you will have noted that researchers have now decided that statins do not have any side effects at all. To be pedantic, the correct term is not side-effects, it is drug related adverse events. A side effect can be positive, or negative.

In order to prove that statins cause no adverse events, a paper was published in the Lancet entitled: ‘Adverse events associated with unblinded, but not with blinded, statin therapy in the Anglo-Scandinavian Cardiac Outcomes Trial—Lipid-Lowering Arm (ASCOT-LLA): a randomised double-blind placebo-controlled trial and its non-randomised non-blind extension phase.’

A virtually impenetrable title which could mean almost anything.



No adverse events, huh? Yeah, no adverse events unless you're one of the people who experiences an adverse event! I guess that makes sense to someone in the industry. It's a crapshoot, just like all medicines they basically refuse to test properly - and then advise, in a PROPER way, the people using them. Sneaky, huh? And now they want to remove the package inserts . . . https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/thepolkadotapron/forum_data/forums.th/thep/thepolkadotapron/smilies/31.gif
Yep, evil personified. I just can't believe there are people still gullible enough to believe these creeps.

Re: What causes heart disease?

Not sure how I missed this segment of his series. It was written in mid-April and I must not have gotten a notification. Drat.

I'm going to post this link in about three places here at this forum, because it's important information for everyone to know, especially those who have heart disease OR high blood pressure. Read and learn - - and then share this. It is a fairly short but extremely valuable reading lesson, packed with information that most people would ask questions about (such as what kind of potassium should I use, what foods contain potassium, how much do I take and can it be too much, can I take it with Rx drugs, etc.) - - all of those questions are answered by Dr. Kendrick in a fairly precise way.

The overriding note to take away from this is that if you are already on a drug for high blood pressure, be careful and maybe start slowly increasing your dose. I take a supplement which contains potassium (K) aspartate (which is a combo of different types of K) and also contain a small amount of magnesium aspartate.

https://drmalcolmkendrick.org/2013/03/04/potassium-your-invisible-friend/

When a doctor tells you to cut back on potassium, tell him to eat dirt. Up your potassium intake and lower your Rx drugs, that's the answer. Doctors just want you to take more drugs so what else would they tell you to do, huh? This is why minerals are soooooooo important to all living things.

= = = = = = = = = =
NOTE:

I found this interesting to read. It comes from the comment section at Dr. Kendrick's last paper/blog on heart disease - about statins now being considered highly safe for ALL of us (which I posted in the Ask Your Questions Here) section of this forum, as I have been posting all of his messages on this subject since he started with Part 1 some time ago! Well worth reading all of them if you haven't already done so.

I hope the "Commenter" doesn't mind.... https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/thepolkadotapron/forum_data/forums.th/thep/thepolkadotapron/smilies/41.gif

Alicia A. McDonough, Luciana C. Veiras, Claire A. Guevara, Donna L. Ralph. Cardiovascular benefits associated with higher dietary K versus lower dietary Na Evidence from population and mechanistic studies. American Journal of Physiology – Endocrinology And Metabolism, 2017; ajpendo.00453.2016 DOI: 10.1152/ajpendo.00453.20

The research team reviewed more than 70 studies related to dietary approaches to regulating high blood pressure and found that the interaction of sodium and potassium is integral to maintaining healthy blood pressure levels. The ratio of sodium to potassium excreted as urine is an indication of how much of these minerals is consumed. When dietary potassium intake is elevated, the kidneys — composed of millions of small tubes working together — shift fluid to the area near the end of the tubes where potassium secretes into the urine. This shift reduces the amount of sodium and water that’s reabsorbed into the body. In this way, high potassium diet signals the body to reduce the amount of sodium that is retained. This circular pattern regulates the levels of both minerals in the body, which in turn helps lower blood pressure. Higher intake and excretion of potassium has also been found to slow the progression of kidney and heart disease.

In addition to analyzing data about the sodium-potassium ratio and its relationship to chronic disease, the research team explored strategies to educate the public about the importance of potassium for blood pressure control and heart health. Suggested policies include:

Requiring manufacturers to print potassium content on Nutrition Facts labels,

Promoting low-cost and easily available sources of potassium (milk, dried beans, potatoes, bananas) and

Encouraging families to cook healthy, plant-based meals together.

“Consuming [an abundance] of [potassium] is a good strategy since our physiology evolved and was optimized to deal with high [potassium] low [sodium] intake, often referred to a Paleolithic diet,” wrote the research team. In other words, the human body functions best with a balance of the two nutrients.



I do NOT agree with his advice on eating strictly a plant-based diet. That is pure nonsense from a dietary point of view. People will, someday, learn that the hard way as people seem to need to learn everything. https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/thepolkadotapron/forum_data/forums.th/thep/thepolkadotapron/smilies/26.gif
Also, don't let a "nutritionist" scare you off eating potatoes and don't let a doctor scare you off consuming proper forms of sodium. Those are my take-aways as advice to my readers. https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/thepolkadotapron/forum_data/forums.th/thep/thepolkadotapron/smilies/40.gif

Re: What causes heart disease?

This is hilarious and truly sad at the same time.

One of the commenters said the "study" was written in Klingon, and that's about the best way to describe it, for sure. Dr. Kendrick, I'm thankful, is doing all the footwork for us on the absurdity of doing a "scientific study" funded by the company who makes the drugs (in this case statins). So they make the report so obscure even another cardiologist can't really follow it, much less someone in the general public. This is how populations go under - from a total lack of understanding the REAL issue here. Money.
