LewRockwell.com’s Dr. Miller vs the Health & Wellness Paradigm

Posted in category Medical Establishment

Back in October, LRC’s own Dr. Donald Miller, a cardiac surgeon and medical school Professor, was a guest on one of the better podcasts on health and wellness, Jimmy Moore’s Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show. Dr. Miller discusses his conventional medical training, his earlier adherence to conventional wisdom, and his transformation to a critically thinking nonconformist. Dr. Miller, who was influenced by the Weston A. Price Foundation, tells us that “most MDs are nutritionally illiterate” and that the medical establishment has been fraudulent in regards to statins. You can listen to the episode here.

    Karen: excellent! Some small amplifications, if I might.

    Was catching up on some reading (links on the Favorites bar) this morning, and got this one done:

    http://www.marksdailyapple.com/saturated-fat-healthy/

    Can we say affirmatory?

    Also, some links in that article (these are kinda funny):

    Now I don’t adhere to much of the latter site, but the notion that you could carry around a 4-yr old pseudo-food is astounding! That stuff can NOT be food!

    This site is also funny (YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT):

    And lastly, let us not forget Dr Mercola:

    http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig10/mercola44.1.html

    I was very fortunate to hook up w/ a doctor who knows Egoscue, Mercola, and Sisson. After 15 years I succumbed to the peer pressure of my work colleagues and had an annual physical.

    Now before I do this, I want to say that I eat as much cheese in a week as most people eat in a year; I am a hamburgerholic (my diet is very high in saturated fats from beef and bacon); I eat raw vegetables (in a container that you get won-ton soup in) for lunch every work day (enzymes!!) (I think that is why I am rarely thirsty – water from the veggies) (and those veggies includes loads of legumes which are loaded w/ carbs and are BAD for you – I know it, but I still do it).

    So here are the numbers (actaully predicted in the Sisson article above):

    LDL-P 923 nmol/L (<1000 = Low)
    LDL-C 122 mg/dL (optimal 40 is good)
    HDL-P 46.4 umol/L (>30.5 good)
    Small LDL-P <90 (need to be 20.5 good)
    Triglycerides 44 mg/dL (need to be < 150!!!)
    Cholesterol 214 (needs to be <200)
    Insulin resistance score: 7 (needs to be < 45!!)

    Read `em and weep!

    As Sisson points out, cholesterol IS HIGHER (as it should be). Doc was a bit concerned w/ LDL-C but said don't do anything about it since the size was good (mebbe a little less legumes?).

    But the trig's were on the floor!

    Must be all that "artery-clogging saturated fat" that I eat@! (which is a kick-butt antioxidant (lol)). And on top of that, the interpretive info states I am at the lowest percentiles for CVD risk and Lipoprotein-Insulin Resistance risk.

    Hey fellas, that's Type II diabetes – translated.

    I can not remember the last time I had a soda, but remember well the last time I sneaked a doughnut. I almost didn't make it to the bathroom in time!@! My body NO LONGER will agree to try and digest that garbage (Krispy Kreme add-on here).

    And oh? Dr Mercola has been unilaterally consistent on this: designer waters, which includes VitaminWater (previous blog), are simply very BAD for you.

    I'd furnish the link, but I don't inbibe on that sh*t so I didn't save it…

    Folks, I hope you find this information helpful.

    An emendation: some of the #’s got goofed (gravatar thingis??)

    LDL-C 122 mg/dL ( 189)

    HDL-C 83 mg/dL ( > 40 is good)

    Small LDL-P < 90 (needs to be < 527!!!)
