Health Impact News Editor Comment: Dr. Briffa runs an excellent blog publishing the truth about cholesterol and cholesterol-lowering drugs.

r The Cholesterol Truth

Excerpts:

Recently, a lady sent me some blood test results that she’d scanned into her computer. The test results showed ‘elevated’ LDL-cholesterol levels. Accompanying the test results was a diet sheet from her doctor, telling her to avoid cholesterol-rich foods such as eggs and shellfish. The idea that people with ‘raised’ cholesterol should avoid eating cholesterol-rich foods has been around for decades.

But as I’ve pointed out repeatedly on this blog, the impact cholesterol (or anything else) has on blood cholesterol levels is irrelevant – it’s its impact on health that is important. Some of the evidence we have in this area is what we call ‘epidemiological’ in nature. Such studies look at associations between things. Relevant studies do not link dietary cholesterol intake with heart disease risk in populations. In other words, individuals who eat more cholesterol do not, generally speaking, appear to be at an increased risk of heart disease. The fact that no association between cholesterol intake and heart disease exists makes it very unlikely that dietary cholesterol is a significant cause of heart disease.

A study found that women who take thyroid hormone for at least 15 years have 200% increase in the risk of breast cancer as compared to women who did not take thyroid hormone.

Should Dr. Oz be Silenced?

Should Dr. Oz be Silenced?

As Dr. Oz’s popularity with Americans grows—and with it a new openness to integrative medicine—mainstream medicine is alarmed.

Last year, when he was a second-year medical student, Benjamin Mazer took it upon himself to ask both the Medical Society of the State of New York (MSSNY) and the American Medical Association (AMA) to address what he called “medical quackery” on television and in other media. He suggested that they consider regulating the advice of celebrity physicians like Dr. Mehmet Oz—asking, in effect, that they do something to gag him.
