Chris Masterjohn from The Daily Lipid is going to join us on the podcast to summarize a new paradigm of understanding cholesterol and it’s role in health and disease. As you know, there’s perhaps no issue in health & nutrition that is more characterized by controversy, propaganda and misinformation.
We’ll be taking a 30,000 foot view of “an evolutionary perspective of cholesterol in the 21st century”. By that I mean summarizing what we know about cholesterol and its relationship to heart disease from the perspective of the most reliable modern evidence and anthropological evidence.
We’ll see how both conventional doctors and researchers, who claim that cholesterol is the cause of heart disease, and cholesterol skeptics, who claim that cholesterol numbers are completely irrelevant, are both wrong.
The episode will be recorded next Friday the 20th, but due to scheduling issues won’t air until June 21st. We probably won’t have much time for questions, but if you have a burning one on this topic, leave it here before Thursday, May 19th and we’ll try to get to it.
