Ep89 Viral Impacts Explained - The PANDA Pandemic Data & Analytics Group.
Deep-dive on the real impacts of this viral issue across the globe, with a special focus on how the cost-benefit of suppression measures is destroying middle-income countries like Africa. Have we lost the plot in trying to stop the unstoppable? Is the cost-benefit horrifically in the wrong direction? Will the middle-income countries suffer enormously and pointlessly, from our Western notions of holding back the tide? Nick Hudson and Peter Castleden of PANDA group answer all...!

Ep85 Viral Realities Revealed: Dr John Lee, Pathology Professor
Excellent conversation with a hero of mine - retired Professor of Pathology Dr. John Lee. He has written such common-sense and yet exceptionally scientific articles on this seasonal viral challenge in The Spectator Magazine, since late March.  I found these articles and realized there was at least one other person in UK/Ireland who understood what the hell was going on - a relief I must say! We cover mortality risk realities, the evidence against Lockdown being an effective intervention, the ethics and philosophy of this whole mess - and exactly WHY they got it so badly wrong. The technical reality is nothing like that portrayed in the media - that's for sure.

Ep84 Tocotrienols - has Vitamin E been Completely Misunderstood?
What an engaging and passionate scientist - and he's a proper gentleman to boot!  I had a great time chatting to Dr. Barrie Tan late last year, on the fascinating science behind Vitamin E. He has dedicated decades of his life to researching it, and it shows. I for one did not realize that the nutritional orthodoxy had screwed up in properly understanding how it works in the physiology (it's not just "cholesterol" that they got badly wrong). Vitamin E actually has many forms - take the wrong ones and it can backfire on you. Focus on the right ones, and will be on your way to enhanced health (along with diet and exercise of course). Most of all enjoy our chat - I know that I certainly did!

Ep83 - Professor Subbotin: LDL Cholesterol Invades Your Arteries - Bad Science or What?
Okay this is a big one - a really big one. Professor Vladimir Subbotin has published multiple papers on his groundbreaking hypothesis, which turns the LDL / ApoB /LDLp dogma on it's head. Do LDL particles really invade your artery wall - attacking from the blood flowing through your arteries? Or is this hypothesis completely incorrect - and not in line with the actual science and pathology of Atherosclerosis? Note that Subbotin's hypothesis is not PROVEN - for example there may be early deposition from lumen side, with the adventitial VV being far more important in the milieu nonetheless. Also, even if early deposition from the lumen side does occur - it is still only because of the Root Causes we list! So it's still moot in any case! ;-) Find out in this fascinating Episode!

By no means will all sufferers experience the same degree of relief - but if you don't try, you certainly have no hope of success.

Ep 49 Ivor Cummins at Carbery Irish Farming Event - Tackle Heart Attack Risk with Real Foods
Latest public talk (a punchy one with a lot crammed into the 15 minute slot), this time in the lovely country of Clonakilty, West Cork in the South of Ireland.  Excellent leadership from Enda Buckley and the Carbery Group management team to launch this initiative to support farmers in achieving better health and productivity, and great job by Orla Hurley in managing all of the logistics. The event featured 4 more speakers on health, safety and productivity educational topics. Nearly 200 farmers and their family members attended to make it a full room on the night in the beautiful Fernhill House Hotel. As mentioned this talk was a tight one, and compresses the core messages on heart attack risk identification - and of course prevention - into 15 short minutes. This may be an ideal one to share with busy friends, family and medical practitioners who often don't have time for the long ones! VIDEO PODCAST LINK:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysoMAUkPZKA Great conversations after the event included one with a 53 year old Cork man who had found my content and IHDA only a short while ago, and was delighted to be able to come and talk about his recent high score - and what he was doing about it. An all too familiar case, he had been told for years that he had no worries on the heart attack front, as he clearly had "low cholesterol" - fantastic, eh?  But in reality he was a classic TOFI case - slim, with low LDL...but you only find the disease when you actually look inside. And now he's all over it - great stuff. So in closing, is real food from the Irish farmers part of this health story? For sure it is - farmers are essentially "in the human health business" - perhaps more than they fully realize at times. As always, go to IHDA.ie for the latest information on heart attack risk detection, and subscribe to https://thefatemperor.com/subscribe to get the solutions!

Happy Christmas all! And today we have a very special episode for you, Part 1 of a highly informative discussion with the inventor of the CAC algorithm which bears his name: "The Agatston Score". Yes we sit today with the cardiologist extraordinaire, Arthur Agatston MD! You will also know Dr. Agatston from his massively bestselling series of "South Beach" diet books. Dr. Agatston brought me through the wonderful approach he takes in his large West Beach Miami practice. He covers all of the heart attack root causes which are relevant for specific patients. Yes of course - most have some form of insulin resistance, via the Kraft test which he is now using widely . But others have more issues with uncommon "special" causes - which have to be identified and treated to eliminate future events. I am sure you will especially enjoy the patient case histories which Arthur has gathered together to illustrate the many things one needs to watch for. These case descriptions really help to demystify the many-headed hydra that is cardiovascular disease! CONTENTS INDEX TO FOLLOW

Caught up with the compelling Robert Cywes MD in Seattle a while back - what followed was a vibrant discussion on how food addiction (especially carbohydrates in processed food) - can cut us off at the knees. Our obesity and chronic disease epidemic isn't an accident. There are causes, and they entrap people in a desperate spiral. Here Robert explains the how and the why behind the enslaving of the modern population. And he goes through the top tips to get out of this prison! As always, go to IHDA.ie for the up-to-date information on identifying true heart attack risk.

John Schoonbee, MD of Swiss Re is Chief Medical Officer for the Life and Health Division of Swiss Re, the world's largest Re-Insurer.  Re-Insurers "underwrite" big risks for the countless insurance companies around the world - so they have to know what they're doing!   Which brings us to Coronary Calcification and the CAC Score - which will become the new standard for identifying heart disease risk in high-value clients (as the stress test etc. have been shown to be very inadequate for the purpose.) This one is short and sweet - and gets to the heart of the matter!

Can Carnivore Diets be Effective Medicine? Mikhaila Peterson reveals all - Podcast #8
Dropped in to Amber O'Hearn's https://carnivorycon.com/ and managed to catch up with none other than Mikhaila Peterson. We of course discussed the extraordinary affect that certain elimination diets can have on a range of profound autoimmune illnesses. Yes we're talking about the new kid on the nutritional block - the Carnivore Diet.What struck me most was the logical approach and sheer determination she displayed in decoding the root causes in a highly complex personal situation. This is an incredibly difficult thing to achieve - especially when under the influence of neurological issues related to your condition. In short - amazing stuff.I trust that you will find the conversation as compelling as I did - there is so much we don't know - but then there is what works. And "what works" is of course crucial - when faced with the most severe challenges in your life!

Episode 2 - Dr. Scott Murray, Cardiologist - on Heart Attack Prevention
Dr. Scott Murray is a research cardiologist with exceptional experience in interventional and preventative cardiology. He is a particular expert in the field of cardiac imaging, and has published many papers on the compelling findings from both his invasive and non-invasive studies. Dr. Murray is the current president of the British Association of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (BACPR). I met Scott at the Johnstown estate in County Meath, Ireland, where I had just addressed the National Institute of Preventive Cardiology of Ireland (NIPC) conference (before participating in an on-stage debate about saturated fat and nutritional guidelines - that was fun, as you can imagine!).  Scott and I took the time out to have a quick chat while our wives walked in the extensive hotel grounds. We focused particularly on the latest 2018 American College of Cardiology (ACC) cardiovascular disease guidelines - which have recently given a coveted "2A" evidence level rating for the use of Coronary Artery Calcium scoring (CAC). We also cover several other topics around cardiac Imaging - such as CAC versus CTCA, ability to detect "soft plaque" using CAC - and of course what all the numbers mean for risk of heart attack and all-cause mortality.
