How Much Cholesterol Is In My Food And How Can I Avoid All Cholesterol? #cardiology

The convergence of evidence suggests that an affordable plant-based diet can help prevent and even reverse some of the top killer diseases in the Western world, and can be even more effective than medication and surgery. This could save Medicare billions of dollars, but medical training continues to underemphasize nutrition education , in part, perhaps, because lifestyle interventions go against the prevailing conventional wisdom. The USDA, in formulating its dietary guidelines, has been accused of both acting with bias and ignoring relevant research. However, the most recent guidelines take a step in the right direction by recommending a shift to a plant-based diet, which Kaiser Permanente, the largest U.S. managed care organization, has moved in the direction of supporting. Lifestyle medicine attempts to find, prevent, and treat the causes of disease. Patients should receive fully informed consent for treatment, meaning they should be informed about all of their options including dietary changes. Doctors report they don’t practice preventative cardiology because they fear their patients won’t change their diet.

Kim Allan Williams, MD, MACC, FAHA, MASNC, FESC was born in Chicago, and attended the College of The University of Chicago (1971 to 1975), followed by the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Medicine (1975 to 1979), internal medicine residency at Emory University (1979 to 1982), and overlapping fellowships in Cardiology at the University of Chicago (1982 to 1985), Clinical Pharmacology (1984 to 1985), and Nuclear Medicine (1984 to 1986). He is board certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Diseases, Nuclear Medicine, Nuclear Cardiology and Cardiovascular Computed Tomography.

Dr. Williams joined the faculty of the University of Chicago in 1986, specializing in clinical cardiology, nuclear medicine, and nuclear cardiology. He served as Professor of Medicine and Radiology and Director of Nuclear Cardiology at The University of Chicago School of Medicine until 2010. Among numerous awards and honors for his teaching in the medical school, residencies and fellowships, he was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha in 2008.

In 2010, he became the Dorothy Susan Timmis Endowed Professor of Medicine and Radiology and Chairman of the Division of Cardiology at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, MI. At Wayne State, he has started the Urban Cardiology Initiative – a program of education of physicians on disparities in healthcare, primary school education on cardiovascular health and community health screening in inner-city Detroit. In November 2013 he returned to Chicago as the James B. Herrick Endowed Professor of Medicine and Cardiology at Rush University Medical Center.

Dr. Williams has published numerous peer-reviewed articles, monographs, book chapters, editorials, and review articles in the field of nuclear cardiology and minority health issues, with emphasis on education and innovations in perfusion imaging and quantitation of ventricular function. His research interests include selective adenosine receptor agonists, fluorinated perfusion PET imaging, cardiac computed tomography for plaque characterization, health care disparities and payment policy, and appropriate use of cardiac imaging.

Dr. Williams has served on numerous committees and boards at the national level, including the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC), the American Heart Association (AHA), the American Medical Association (AMA), the American College of Cardiology (ACC), the Certifying Board of Nuclear Cardiology, the Certifying Board of Cardiac Computed Tomography, the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography and the Association of Black Cardiologists (ABC). He served as President of ASNC from 2004 to 2005. He served as Chairman of the Board of ABC from 2008 to 2010.

    He talked about nuts but I watched Jeff Nelson's clip on the way studies were made and I'm careful with nuts now.

    What the heck. People are on carnivore diet for years and they are extremely strong and healthy.

    When He talks about sugar is he talking about table sugar maple syrup or is he also talking about fruit?

    Everything he's saying is accurate, except for the part where he perpetuates the myth that sugar causes diabetes. Sugar is in no way a health food and does cause a lot of issues in the human body, but causing diabetes is not one of them. Fat in the muscle (intramyocellular lipids), in particular saturated fat, (which blocks sugars from entering the muscles) is what causes diabetes.

    5.0 out of 5 starsWe credit Dr. Stephen Sinatra for saving my husband from END STAGE HEART DISEASE – Cholesterol is a red herring!
    November 18, 2015
    Format: Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Cardiologist Dr. Stephen Sinatra MD is RIGHT ON THE MONEY. We owe my husband's continued life to the TRUTH as revealed by Dr. Stephen Sinatra as he discusses in his books including The Sinatra Solution: Metabolic Cardiology and Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?. When I heard the Great Cholesterol Myth was coming out I quickly nabbed a copy from our local library – I have since purchased a copy here on Amazon to be able to share with our many friends who are overly concerned with their cholesterol to the detriment of over-looking inflammation. Be sure to get the NEW & UPDATED 2015 version of the The Great Cholesterol Myth Now Includes 100 Recipes. The Great Cholesterol Myth Now Includes 100 Recipes for Preventing and Reversing Heart Disease: Why Lowering Your Cholesterol Won't Prevent Heart Disease-and the Statin-Free Plan that Will

    Dr. Sinatra discussed The Great Cholesterol Myth in good detail on the Dr. Oz show. Both Dr. Oz and Dr. Sinatra have publicly stated they no longer believe so many people should be prescribed statin drugs and they both have discussed why children should NOT be taking statin drugs.

    When entire teams of cardiologists sent my husband home to die and gave us NO advice to keeping him alive, a friend told us about The Sinatra Solution: Metabolic Cardiology and Lower Your Blood Pressure in Eight Weeks: A Revolutionary Program for a Longer, Healthier Life. We also found Reverse Heart Disease Now: Stop Deadly Cardiovascular Plaque Before It's Too Late and The Doctor's Heart Cure, Beyond the Modern Myths of Diet and Exercise: The Clinically-Proven Plan of Breakthrough Health Secrets That Helps You Build a Powerful, Disease-Free Heart informative as well. In Dr. Sinatra's books we learned the truth of the Awesome Foursome (supplements) and how to re-energize the heart at the cellular level. Instead the 10 years prior his former medical doctors always lectured him about his cholesterol levels (never high, but they wanted his levels lower due to his former diagnosis of type 2 diabetes (now "resolved" per our primary care M.D.) and hypertension (under far better control now since we learned the truth of Metabolic Cardiology.)

    Despite being prescribed statins, high blood pressure medications and diabetes medications, my husband developed END STAGE heart disease. After 4 stents his ejection fraction was still less than 15%, he could not get out of bed to get a shower, he was weak, sick, frail and pale. Today he's growing stronger, vibrant, glowing skin and is the picture of improving health. ALL because of healthy eating and VERY wise supplementation including the Awesome Foursome as Sinatra writes to great length about – magnesium, l-carnitine, d-ribose, and co-enzymeQ10 (though we prefer to use ubiquinol with PQQ instead.)

    INFLAMMATION IS THE PROBLEM. Lack of NUTRITION is the problem. OVER-PROCESSED FOOD is the problem (we refer to this as chemicalized sludge). OVER-MEDICATION is the problem! Egotistical medical doctors who deny the truth further contribute to the problem! HEAVY METALS is ALSO part of the problem. Find a ACAM doctor willing to do an IV Chelation challenge with urinalysis and see which heavy metals are involved – we're repeatedly seeing MERCURY, LEAD, THALLIUM and MRI Contrast GADOLINIUM among our friends and acquaintances on local support groups. We will NEVER EVER EVER consent to an MRI with contrast EVER AGAIN, GADOLINIUM IS TOXIC! GADOLINIUM CAUSED MY HUSBAND's ATRIAL FIBRILLATION AND PARTIAL PARALYSIS.

    The answer is NUTRITION, supplementation wisely, ANTI-OXIDANTS for reducing inflammation, EDTA treatments followed up mineral supplementation to remove heavy metals, etc. We use LOTS of turmeric in our home for cooking rice, soups, stews, homemade french salad dressing, etc. Turmeric is an awesome anti-inflammatory – so much so my husband controlled pain from surgery to repair his hip fracture – yes, turmeric is indeed that powerful! This is why turmeric has been used so widely in Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as in Ayurvedic medicine (India) as practiced the past 4,000 – 8,000 years, respectively. Garlic and the other culinary herbs have so many wonderful phytonutrients that also help to further reduce inflammation and increase overall cardiovascular health, this is why they have been so widely used over many thousands of years. Our ancestors were far wiser than we generally give them credit.

    By the way, STATIN DRUGS deplete Co-enzyme Q 10 which causes MUSCLE PAIN, JOINT PAIN, CRIPPLED "arthritic" HANDS, BACK PAIN, etc. Read THE GREAT CHOLESTEROL MYTH for the truth… you will be surprised.

    Highly Recommend! EVERYONE concerned with heart disease should read The Great Cholesterol Myth. We feel this is so vital that we are giving a copy to our cardiologist and primary care doctor so they are on the same page with us. Please consider giving a copy of this book to YOUR primary care doctor and YOUR cardiologist, let's get them ALL on the same page for the benefit of our entire society as a whole. Big Pharma is NOT looking out for our best interests.
