Heart Disease Is Not What You Think, with the author of The South Beach Diet, World Renowned Cardiologist Dr. Arthur Agatston

In the first of two episodes with world renowned cardiologist Dr. Arthur Agatston, we break down everything you need to know about heart disease - the top killer of all American’s, over cognitive disease, cancer, diabetes, etc. In this weeks show, Dr. Agatston clears up all the misinformation about cholesterol and explains what types of cholesterol are bad, down to the particular size of your LDL (low density lipid particles). He explains which genetic predispositions cause heart disease, from an inability to clear LDL from the body to being a “hyper absorber of LDL,” and what to do about it. He tells us which foods to avoid and, believe it or not, cholesterol in food isn’t the problem! He goes over what to ask your doctor for, from finding out your calcium score and getting a heart scan, to fasting glucose and insulin tests. He explains the difference between soft plaque and hard plaque and how to tell the health of your arteries. He even breaks down the top contributors to heart disease outside of genetics and how to prevent it altogether.
