Introducing: Zoe Harcombe PhD

In the past few years I have read a lot- and listened many hours (Youtube) to folks, who had a message, which appeared to make sense and were congruent to the experiences I noted, whilst going through change processes myself and at the same time were debunking "myths" from the "science based medical industry" i.e. the Ancel Keys myth of substituting saturated fats, like butter and lard, with omega 6 polyunsaturated linoleic products, like margerine and sunflower seed oil. And whats even more important, the assumption that a high diet in saturated fats implies a higher risk for major cardiac adverse events compared to substituting those to linoleic oils, which proved exactly to be the other way round and caused major health damage to global humanity, due to the defunct cholesterol hypothesis.

Those "debunkers" which have been important to me, include Joseph Mercola on a general level (although ALL of his articles are referenced to scientific publications!) and Robert Lustig (Sugar:The bitter truth) on a scientific basis, but also Zoe Harcombe was really good to listen to. Today- I passed her website on my web journey of the day- and impulsively decided to subcribe to her newsletter so I contribute a bit to her research and independency ( still do several years later). You probably will hear more from her through my own writings as what usually happens with "disciples" LOL.

 

She lives in Newport, in beautiful South-Wales, where I had the pleasure to also spend quite a few months of my life.

President of AHA (52) suffers heart attack

On Monday November 13 2017, news hit the wires, which caused quite some commotion:
The president of the Dallas-based American Heart Association (AHA) is recovering after suffering a minor heart attack Monday morning at the organization's scientific conference in California, which was held from November 11 through 15 and where he delivered his opening presidendial address.John Warner, 52,  a cardiologist, vice president and CEO of UT Southwestern University Hospitals, was in stable condition with his family by his side at a California hospital. Doctors inserted a stent to open an artery, the association said in a prepared statement.

Now- isnt that something, a guy of 52, thereto cardiologist and surely living by all the recommendations in respect of prophylactic medications and lifestyles, to prevent an occurrence like that, that his organization has to offer to its members and the population in general at risk for cardiac disorders. Maybe those recommendations are not so solid and preventive of major adverse events? Most likely in my view.
Anyway- there was a time where I followed the recommendations of the AHA almost blindly. I even joined the AHA in 2005, since that was the time, that I also had my minor heart attack and out of this personal interest was invested in CVTX - CV Therapeutics- the developer of an anti-anginal medication with the trade name Ranexa, which was introduced at the AHA with big fanfare in the years following.
