I'll Be Speaking at the 2011 Ancestral Health Symposium, 2011 Wise Traditions, and the 5th Annual Low-Carb Cruise

Due to some last-minute schedule revisions, I'll be speaking at the Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) this summer, which runs the weekend of August 5-6, 2011.


I'll be giving my talk "Heart Disease and Molecular Degeneration" on Friday evening.  This will be similar to the talk I gave at last year's Wise Traditions conference (which I got a lot of great feedback on), but will be condensed into 45 minutes and will be updated with new information.

Unfortunately, AHS is already sold out.  I have two other upcoming speaking engagements that are not sold out, however, both of which should be a blast.

The first will be at the 2011 Wise Traditions conference, whose theme this year is "Mythbusters!"  This conference runs November 11-14.


On Saturday, I'll be giving a talk called "Fat Myths" before the plenary session and on Sunday I'll be giving a talk on "Vitamin K" during the nutrition track.

In 2012, I'll be speaking on the 5th Annual Low-Carb Cruise.


The topic and exact dates are still to be determined, but it looks like the cruise will take place next May, and I imagine it will be amazing.

I look forward to seeing you all at some of these events!

  1. Looking forward to hearing you speak at the Wise Traditions conference in Dallas, Chris. This will be my first pilgrimage to a WAPF conference.

  5. That was an exceptional interview with Chris Kressr; i learned a lot from it. If i am to understand your viewpoint, one would conclude that the mix of LDL particles between small and large is not as important as the total amount of LDL particles that carry cholesterol. IF this is correct, then a number of people in the Paleo community may be fooling themselves in to thinking that all is ok when most of their LDL particles are large. It may depend upon how many there are and for those on the high fat diet that might be as many as 2,000 particles floating around and potentially overwhelm the LDL receptors, hang around to long and degrade, get oxidized and cause an inflammatory reaction. Not so good. I guess the question may be what is a good marker- LDL particle number? When to become concerned? What are your thoughts?
    Thanks for the outstanding podcast!

  6. Hi Steve,

    Actually, I would word it slightly differently. It's about oxidation. One thing that *affects* oxidation is residence time (how long it stays in plasma). But if something causes longer residence time but somehow prevents oxidation, it's not a problem. The total-to-HDL-C ratio is a *marker* for residence time, and thus indirectly a marker for one of the major influences on oxidation, but not a direct cause. This is also the best marker for predicting CVD mortality in the general population, whereas TGs and LDL particle size add no additional information. Since it is not, in my view a *cause,* it should not be read in a dogmatic way, leading to panic if it is off, but should be used as a springboard to more extensively investigate what metabolic corrections may be needed.

    If you want a marker for LDL particle number, the cheapest and best thing is probably ApoB. There is one ApoB molecule per LDL particle. There is also one per VLDL particle, but most of it is on LDL. However, evidence thus far does not suggest that testing ApoB improves CVD prediction over total-to-HDL-C, and again, the number of particles is not the cause of anything, in my view. It is theoretically possible that at some point more particles will mean they can't be cleared, but in most cases it's probably just either a) more particles produced, or b) fewer particles cleared. In my view, "a" is not a problem but "b" is.

    So, in my personal opinion, if you're going to go by a lipid marker it should be total-to-HDL-C, but TGs should also be normalized according to standard guidelines (as this is also about the max seen in high-carb groups like the Kitavans, actually a little lower around 100-120) and a more comprehensive view of health should be taken that also looks at oxidation, inflammation, thyroid function, and so on.

    You're welcome and thanks for the props!

    Chris

  7. Thanks for the response. In my case i had an NMR with a particle count of 2,098 LDL with 210 being small. LDL was 188, Total Cholesterol was 245 and HDL was 69 and Trgs 66. No meds, but do have CAD via calcium scan of 240 with family history of CAD and heart attack. I am age 60 with all other health markers believed to be normal. Was on Crestor after being on Lipitor, but quit it due to muscle pain. Had none on Lipitor.
    I know that the doc will want me back on statins which i am equivical about. While on Crestor my particles were 640 LDL with less than 90 small and 64 HDL and 60 trgs with total cholesterol of about 130. Have been eating more butter in the case of the high particle count. Interested in your thoughts on the ratio of 3.55 (total cholesterol/HDL). Diet is meat fish, eggs, some poultry, veggies. No sugar wheat of any kind and only starch is rice and potatoes usually with dinner. Maybe i have been eating to much sat fat and might be a hyper absorber of fat for that matter. Much appreciate your thoughts.
