The Fat Emperor

I think this video is well worth the watch. It’s the up-to-date story from Ivor Cummins (The Fat Emperor) of his search for and discovery of the root causes behind Coronary Heart Disease. It debunks Cholesterol as a cause (at best LDL is a very weak indicator), and then leads on to what he (and many others) believe are the probable causes of CHD – namely Insulin Resistance, which can be controlled and reversed by dietary means (as well as exercise, giving-up smoking, reducing stress, sleeping well and taking certain supplements). It also highlights the value of CAC testing, which I have referred to before.

I’ve watched several of his talks before but this is an excellent introductory one, given in November 2017 to the FIT-CEO corporate health and productivity conference in Dublin.
