  1. Hi Ivor, I developed Afib, (3 months after starting keto). I had none of the risk factors, including magnesium and potassium levels. So basically the docs don't know what caused it. I am wondering if there is any research on Keto and afib. I read that keto is a more acidic diet and the heart is sensitive to changes in PH levels. It was recommended in the hospital that I come off keto.

  2. Ivor….slightly off topic. I know….What happened was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to be governed by surprise, to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believe that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if people could understand it, it could not be released because of national security.

    The crises and reforms (real reforms too) so occupied the people that they did not see the slow motion underneath, of the whole process of government growing remoter and remoter.

    To live in the process is absolutely not to notice it — please try to believe me — unless one has a much greater degree of political awareness, acuity, than most of us ever had occasion to develop. Each step was so small, so inconsequential, so well explained or, on occasion, 'regretted.'

    Believe me this is true. Each act, each occasion is worse than the last, but only a little worse. You wait for the next and the next. You wait for one shocking occasion, thinking that others, when such a shock comes, will join you in resisting somehow.

    Suddenly it all comes down, all at once. You see what you are, what you have done, or, more accurately, what you haven't done (for that was all that was required of most of us: that we did nothing) . . . You remember everything now, and your heart breaks. Too late. You are compromised beyond repair.

  3. First they came for the writers and I did not speak up,
    then they came for the poets and I did not speak up,
    then they came for me and there was no one left to speak up.
    When they knock down my door and pulled me outside,
    I was going to run but they put me inside…,
    in the middle of barbed wire.
    I don't know from where unknown people came,
    the strangers held a weapon and took invaders in cross fire.

    Since that time forever and ever, and to the end of the world,
    With my all heart I was to them enemy sworn,
    Looking at them, they were like creeping maggot or worm
    Thanks to unforeseen occurrence I felt like invincible warlord.

    No humanity or spark of life left in riddled with bullets invaders
    My soul has been brought back to life by unexpected strangers
    Life is not over or not finished yet
    Time to be loud, with well thought out ideas, like starting plane jet.

    Poem by me.
    The first three fist lines might sound for you very familiar to another poem.
    That was not intended goal.
    Excuse me typos and grammar mistakes.
    I am not native English speaker.
    I have used rimes:
    aabb abba abab to make it a bit more interesting.
    I hope you enjoy it.

  4. "Hunter‐gatherers as models in public health" -:Hunter‐gatherer populations are remarkable for their excellent metabolic and cardiovascular health and thus are often used as models in public health, in an effort to understand the root, evolutionary causes of non‐communicable diseases. Here, we review recent work on health, activity, energetics and diet among hunter‐gatherers and other small‐scale societies (e.g. subsistence farmers, horticulturalists and pastoralists), as well as recent fossil and archaeological discoveries, to provide a more comprehensive perspective on lifestyle and health in these populations. We supplement these analyses with new data from the Hadza, a hunter‐gatherer population in northern Tanzania. Longevity among small‐scale populations approaches that of industrialized populations, and metabolic and cardiovascular disease are rare. Obesity prevalence is very low (<5%), and mean body fat percentage is modest (women: 24–28%, men: 9–18%). Activity levels are high, exceeding 100 min d−1 of moderate and vigorous physical activity, but daily energy expenditures are similar to industrialized populations. Diets in hunter‐gatherer and other small‐scale societies tend to be less energy dense and richer in fibre and micronutrients than modern diets but are not invariably low carbohydrate as sometimes argued. A more integrative understanding of hunter‐gatherer health and lifestyle, including elements beyond diet and activity, will improve public health efforts in industrialized populations.

  5. Can you look into thyroid disease a little more? So much of the population is either hypo or hyperthyroid. Doctors want to tell you low carb and diet has nothing to do with it. There must be supplements that can help here as well. Just wanting to pick your brain! I love your work!

  6. Definitely appreciate the insight and all of the medical information. But I do question the issue of grains and carbohydrates. Mediterranean diet consumes a high amount of bread. The Asian diet consumes a high amount of white rice. So I'm not so convinced that the carbohydrates are a problem I would like to see this issue addressed on a very wide scope and scale of study

  7. How many people in the Blue Zones-where there are the most centenarians in the world, are on low carb or keto diet? Can anyone guess? I'm not saying that one can't achieve pretty good health on low carb or even keto… the problem is sticking to it for a long time…

  8. I hope that Ivor interviews Dr Al Danenberg for his thoughts on health and diet. Like this interview he has made changes late in life that have made massive improvements in their health. Great interview.

  9. The truth is that calcification is a defense against arterial inflammation. It's really the arterial inflammation, not the calcification which most often causes heart attacks. The YouTube site of Dr. Ford Brewer has often pointed out that it is soft deposits, not the calcified deposits which most often trigger heart attacks. Usually both are present at the same time.

  10. I cant wait for part 2! I've been reading about K2 and am so interested. I've had a weird obsession about heart disease, in that I have bothered my dr about being paranoid about mine.
    Drs dont know nutrition or supplements, so I've been being my own health expert. I've not heard of K2. I want to know the entire regime to use and the actual product names and suggested brands.
    I'll be waiting patiently for part 2. Is his meeting over yet? 🤔 😁
