In retrospect, I don't know why this wasn't obvious to me years ago, but my hindsight is really the only thing that didn't start failing me when I turned 17 and my opthamologist told me I was "just getting older."
A little over two years ago, I gave a lecture at the Freedom Law School's Health and Freedom Conference out in sunny Irvine, California, which is near LA and part of Orange County. The conference was a strange but fun hodge podge of politics, conspiracy theories, and nutrition lectures.
If you've been following my blogs and interviews on cholesterol and are familiar with most of my cholesterol material, you may find yourself in familiar territory at first, in which case you can skip ahead to the 60 minute mark where we discuss some of my criticisms about undue focus on LDL particle size, my suggestions about managing familial hypercholesterolemia, and my thoughts on the role of leptin and thyroid hormone in regulating LDL receptor activity by communicating energy and nutrient availability to our body for the purposes of strength, virility, and fertility. This will serve as a comprehensive introduction and I'll be back a second time just to answer questions.
I'm a bit jammed for time but will try to write more soon. Enjoy!
