A DOCTOR FINALLY TELLS THE TRUTH!

THE TRUTH ABOUT FAT AND CHOLESTEROL..HEART SURGEON SPEAKS OUT ON WHAT REALLY CAUSES HEART DISEASE

270616_603138193032313_1356588779_n

We physicians with all our training, knowledge and authority often acquire a rather large ego that tends to make it difficult to admit we are wrong. So, here it is. I freely admit to being wrong.. As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries,today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact.I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labelled “opinion makers.” Bombarded with scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol.The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease. Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice.It Is Not Working!

These recommendations are no longer scientifically or morally defensible. The discovery a few years ago that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated.

The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes, the consequences of which dwarf any historical plague in terms of mortality, human suffering and dire economic consequences.

Despite the fact that 25% of the population takes expensive statin medications and despite the fact we have reduced the fat content of our diets, more Americans will die this year of heart disease than ever before.

Statistics from the American Heart Association show that 75 million Americans currently suffer from heart disease, 20 million have diabetes and 57 million have pre-diabetes. These disorders are affecting younger and younger people in greater numbers every year.

Simply stated, without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped.

Inflammation is not complicated

Inflammation is not complicated — it is quite simply your body’s natural defence to a foreign invader such as a bacteria, toxin or virus. The cycle of inflammation is perfect in how it protects your body from these bacterial and viral invaders. However, if we chronically expose the body to injury by toxins or foods the human body was never designed to process,a condition occurs called chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation is just as harmful as acute inflammation is beneficial.

What thoughtful person would willfully expose himself repeatedly to foods or other substances that are known to cause injury to the body? Well,smokers perhaps, but at least they made that choice willfully.

inflammation in our blood vessels is caused by the low fat diet
The rest of us have simply followed the recommended mainstream diet that is low in fat and high in polyunsaturated fats and carbohydrates, not knowing we were causing repeated injury to our blood vessels. This repeated injury creates chronic inflammation leading to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity.

Let me repeat that: The injury and inflammation in our blood vessels is caused by the low fat diet recommended for years by mainstream medicine.

What are the biggest culprits of chronic inflammation? Quite simply, they are the overload of simple, highly processed carbohydrates (sugar, flour and all the products made from them) and the excess consumption of omega-6 vegetable oils like soybean, corn and sunflower that are found in many processed foods.

Take a moment to visualize rubbing a stiff brush repeatedly over soft skin until it becomes quite red and nearly bleeding. you kept this up several times a day, every day for five years. If you could tolerate this painful brushing, you would have a bleeding, swollen infected area that became worse with each repeated injury. This is a good way to visualize the inflammatory process that could be going on in your body right now.

Regardless of where the inflammatory process occurs, externally or internally, it is the same. I have peered inside thousands upon thousands of arteries. A diseased artery looks as if someone took a brush and scrubbed repeatedly against its wall. Several times a day, every day, the foods we eat create small injuries compounding into more injuries, causing the body to respond continuously and appropriately with inflammation.

While we savor the tantalizing taste of a sweet roll, our bodies respond alarmingly as if a foreign invader arrived declaring war. Foods loaded with sugars and simple carbohydrates, or processed withomega-6 oils for long shelf life have been the mainstay of the American diet for six decades. These foods have been slowly poisoning everyone.

How does eating a simple sweet roll create a cascade of inflammation to make you sick?

Imagine spilling syrup on your keyboard and you have a visual of what occurs inside the cell. When we consume simple carbohydrates such as sugar, blood sugar rises rapidly. In response, your pancreas secretes insulin whose primary purpose is to drive sugar into each cell where it is stored for energy. If the cell is full and does not need glucose, it is rejected to avoid extra sugar gumming up the works.

When your full cells reject the extra glucose, blood sugar rises producing more insulin and the glucose converts to stored fat.

When you spike your blood sugar level several times a day, every day, it is exactly like taking sandpaper to the inside of your delicate blood vessels
What does all this have to do with inflammation? Blood sugar is controlled in a very narrow range. Extra sugar molecules attach to a variety of proteins that in turn injure the blood vessel wall. This repeated injury to the blood vessel wall sets off inflammation. When you spike your blood sugar level several times a day, every day, it is exactly like taking sandpaper to the inside of your delicate blood vessels.

While you may not be able to see it, rest assured it is there. I saw it in over 5,000 surgical patients spanning 25 years who all shared one common denominator — inflammation in their arteries.

Correct omega-3 Balance

Let’s get back to the sweet roll. That innocent looking goody not only contains sugars, it is baked in one of many omega-6 oils such as soybean. Chips and fries are soaked in soybean oil; processed foods are manufactured with omega-6 oils for longer shelf life. While omega-6’s are essential -they are part of every cell membrane controlling what goes in and out of the cell — they must be in the correct balance with omega-3’s.

If the balance shifts by consuming excessive omega-6, the cell membrane produces chemicals called cytokines that directly cause inflammation.

Today’s mainstream American diet has produced an extreme imbalance of these two fats. The ratio of imbalance ranges from 15:1 to as high as 30:1 in favor of omega-6. That’s a tremendous amount of cytokines causing inflammation. In today’s food environment, a 3:1 ratio would be optimal and healthy.

The human body cannot process, nor was it designed to consume, foods packed with sugars and soaked in omega-6 oils.
To make matters worse, the excess weight you are carrying from eating these foods creates overloaded fat cells that pour out large quantities of pro-inflammatory chemicals that add to the injury caused by having high blood sugar. The process that began with a sweet roll turns into a vicious cycle over time that creates heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and finally, Alzheimer’s disease, as the inflammatory process continues unabated.

There is no escaping the fact that the more we consume prepared and processed foods, the more we trip the inflammation switch little by little each day. The human body cannot process, nor was it designed to consume, foods packed with sugars and soaked in omega-6 oils.

There is but one answer to quieting inflammation, and that is returning to foods closer to their natural state. To build muscle, eat more protein. Choose carbohydrates that are very complex such as colorful fruits and vegetables. Cut down on or eliminate inflammation- causing omega-6 fats like corn and soybean oil and the processed foods that are made from them.

Healthy vs Un-Healthy Fats

One tablespoon of corn oil contains 7,280 mg of omega-6; soybean contains 6,940 mg. Instead, use olive oil or butter from grass-fed beef.

Forget the “science” that has been drummed into your head for decades
Animal fats contain less than 20% omega-6 and are much less likely to cause inflammation than the supposedly healthy oils labelled polyunsaturated. Forget the “science” that has been drummed into your head for decades. The science that saturated fat alone causes heart disease is non-existent. The science that saturated fat raises blood cholesterol is also very weak. Since we now know that cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, the concern about saturated fat is even more absurd today.

The cholesterol theory led to the no-fat, low-fat recommendations that in turn created the very foods now causing an epidemic of inflammation. Mainstream medicine made a terrible mistake when it advised people to avoid saturated fat in favor of foods high in omega-6 fats. We now have an epidemic of arterial inflammation leading to heart disease and other silent killers.

What you can do is choose whole foods your grandmother served and not those your mom turned to as grocery store aisles filled with manufactured foods. By eliminating inflammatory foods and adding essential nutrients from fresh unprocessed food, you will reverse years of damage in your arteries and throughout your body from consuming the typical American diet

Have you heard about NOLLYWOOD?

Nollywood
Not Hollywood…and not Bollywood. Nollywood is the Nigerian Movie Industry

No, this isn’t a typo.  Nollywood is the Nigerian version of Hollywood and Bollywood. It’s their movie industry. They have their own stars, themes, languages, and styles. It is the second largest movie industry in the world after India, and before the US, in terms of movies produced annually…some 1200 – 2000 yearly.  However, Nollywood comes in third place after the US and India in terms of how much money is made from this industry…approximately from 200 – 500 million annually depending on where you source your information.  And top Nollywood actors have a net worth of close to $500,000 (US) which translates into millionaire status back in Nairaland.

I remember the first time I actually saw one of these movies. It was rather interesting to me because I didn’t even know what I was watching. I thought it was one of those Jamaican movies because it was so funny.  It starred these two young guys…they were playing brothers, Im not sure if they were small people or children, but they were fantastic. I mean, how often do you see an all Black movie where the quality of the filming is a bit “low budget”, but the story is great.  Must be island, I thought to myself. I was used to Jamaican films because naturally living in the Caribbean, we tended to support one another in that way.  Not to mention the issues shared in the films and the comedy were comparable. Famous comedians from Jamaica, like Oliver Samuels, were hits in the islands and his production even came to the Virgin Islands years ago where I went to see a play of his.  And just like the Nigerian film industry, Jamaican plays became movies and became a big hit.

Nollywood movies go straight to DVD

So I thought I was watching a Jamaican comedy film the first time I saw a Nollywood movie until a friend of mine said it was Afrikan.  I was intrigued because as bad as the quality was the storyline was rather entertaining. And so began my love for the industry.  At first, when I was living in Baltimore, I had to find and borrow movies from folks who were able to get films from NY on DVD.  Or when I would go to NY, I would go to the Afrikan open air market and I would buy like 5 movies at one time.  They would sell them so cheap, like $3 a pop.  I usually assumed they were bootleg and always wondered how this industry was able to make any money.

Of course I investigated that issue…and Im still not sure about all the facts…but from what I have found, Nollywood movies hit the streets rather quickly after production. And is a straight to DVD industry.  They don’t do movie theatres because there was a lot of crime happening in the theatre’s and so people felt more comfortable in their own homes. The DVDs sell for about $2 (US) each which is affordable for the average Nigerian. And in a country with limited resources and lots of people, one movie can easily sell 50,000 – 200,000 copies…before it hits the black markets…and with a production budget from $15,000 – $25,000.  That is a pretty good turnover….not to mention that these movies are being released EVERY SINGLE DAY…more than one at a time too!  So, Im sure it’s highly competitive and people start to develop their taste for their favorite stars.

Now what makes a Nollywood movie so good?  Well, let me assure you in order to really be impressed by one of their movies you need to throwaway all your American ideas of what a good movie is, because it doesn’t apply here.  In fact, if you view a Nollywood movie with American ideals, you would be sadly disappointed. From an American standard, Nollywood movies may just insult your intelligence a bit.  First of all, the quality of the entire movie is subpar!  I mean, the music is always so bad, the editing is horrid, and sometimes the storyline is long in parts that should have been cut off, and not enough information in parts that should have been developed.  From an American perspective, their movies are Amateur at best. Thing is, Im really not trying to discredit how amazing Nollywood is…Im just trying to be real.  Get a bunch of Americans to sit down and watch a Nollywood movie and they will most likely say the same thing….or worst.  I think that I understand the idiosyncrasies a lot more because I grew up in the Caribbean, which is second generation Afrikan (people act the same way there)…and I was around Afrikans a lot in college.  I was the Vice President of the International Student Association at an All Black school…and the only international students we had were Afrikans, and Caribbean students.

Nollywood movies seem to not really be movies at all, to tell you the truth. First of all, unlike in Bollywood movies, where the movies run about 3-4 hours, one Nollywood movie tends to always end right around the 1 hour mark without fail.  Not that the story is over either.  Which make me feel like Nollywood movies are more like a Soap Opera or short TV series, because at the one hour mark, in most cases, the story is incomplete. So you have to look for part 2 of the movie to see what happens next. And sometimes a part 3 and a part 4 too. Hilarious!  Because once again, by American standards, a movie is one complete story, right?  Well, we are not using American standards here.  Stay with me now!

I think that the main thing that is entertaining about Nollywood movies is really getting a glimpse into Nigerian culture…which to me is taking a glimpse into Afrikan culture in general.  Im sure most Afrikans won’t agree at all with this.  Ghanaians have their own movie industry…but from where I sit…it all looks the same.  Im sure a Ghanaian and a Nigerian could tell the difference but things are not that distinct to me with my American eyes.  Watching the customs of how people bow down to elders, and the way they dress, and some of things that they say over and over again…like when they say “HEY!” when they find out something shocking is quite the edutainment that I would assume foreigners come to enjoy when they watch these movies.  And just in the way things are pronounced it is pretty interesting too.  Now, even though they are speaking English, in most cases, their dialect is slightly British and slightly Afrikan…I guess.  So you really have to key in to what they are saying because you might miss something.  Im sure I miss things all the time because there are things that are said that only their culture would know. It’s like I was talking to a friend from England and she didn’t know who Urkel was.  So she loses out on the entire joke because culturally she wasn’t privy to what most Americans have heard before.  Same thing applies to watching Nollywood movies…they say things all the time that would make me think that I would have had to grow up there to know that.

Another thing I like about Nollywood movies is that I am supporting a Black film industry. Now if you are Black, you would understand this. And this doesn’t mean anything more that what I am saying.  People love to see their own and it is as simple as that. I feel a sense of pride seeing Afrikan people on the screen doing their thing.  Even though there are strong cultural differences that are obvious, it doesn’t matter because there is a kinship that is very strong here and I know that we are connected.  Not to mention the fact that when I see those fine Afrikan men on the screen, I feel like Im looking at something here. (wink wink) Do you get what Im saying?  I mean people forget to realize that Idris Elba, one of the world’s hottest men, is in fact a pure 100% Afrikan man. I mean I can get into some of America’s hottest actors (Denzel, The Rock, Brad Pitt, etc), but folks don’t realize that there is whole ‘nother set of eye candy coming out of Nigeria now.  Check out Richard Mofe Damijo, better known as RMD.  He is fine like a bottle of wine!  HA!

RMD:  Nollywood's Hottest Male Actor
RMD: Nollywood’s Hottest Male Actor

Let’s not forget the women of Nollywood. They tickle me so much. These women go from traditional Afrikan styles with their gele’s (head wraps) and traditional garbs to hot, modern women with their super straight hair wigs, color contacts, and stilettos…and all in the same movie.  Nollywood films don’t really have a theme all the time; once again, this is coming from an American standard.

The women actors must have their own following. Their beauty is diverse and I can see it ringing through the screen. One of them that I find most intriguing is Mercy Johnson.  What got me is I find her not only intriguingly beautiful, but also extremely convincing too. I mean, this girl has made me cry on several occasions.  She is awesome! I have seen her in several movies and I always love the parts she plays and how she plays them.

Speaking of the actors, don’t let the beauty fool you. The acting is really bad.  But I don’t really think it’s the acting that is bad; I think it’s the writing that is bad.  I think the actors do as much justice to their scripts as they can, but I feel many times that the script is what it is. So the actors work with it and keep it moving. I think if Nollywood movies were to be made better it may actually take away from the authenticity of the film…but I would hope that just because a movie is “low-budget” doesn’t mean that it is authentically Afrikan. That wouldn’t be fair. I would have to say that I do believe that their film industry could do much better in their editing departments. The way movies are cut up and repetitious soundtracks that don’t even apply to what is going on could really be improved.  There are times when we are sitting watching the actors eat their entire dinner, not talking to one another, and realize…ok…is this just one of these filler sections?  Cut it out!

Im sure that most people on the outside are really unaware of what life in Afrika is like.  These movies tend to give an outsider a glimpse of the real Afrika. I love how they showcase life in the village vs life in the city.  There are still many people that don’t think that Afrikans live in real homes, have cars, TVs etc.  Nollywood movies shut all that down right away. Some movies are based in the villages and others in the cities, but you can see that life is diverse. And for those folks who think Afrika is stuck in time they will find that there are highly mistaken.

So why would an intelligent person want to watch a Nollywood movie?   It’s the same reason why people watch Chinese Karate movies, where people are flying through the air over the houses and trees, where their English editing is way off, and where the Karate moves are choreographed in a way that is far from realistic.  You know, there is something delightful about watching people from another culture in a sort of satirical way…Looking in from the outside, observing, learning,  and being entertained. Embracing other people! It’s connecting to what you recognize from your own culture and lifestyle, and understanding things that you never experienced. It’s why people travel and explore the Earth….to have new and amazing adventures.

So there! I hope in some way I have inspired you to check out this amazing industry.  You can actually catch thousands of movies on YouTube…just put in the search: NOLLYWOOD! I think you will quickly become addicted.  Thanks for watching!

Is Indian Food Healthy?

OH BOY!  Don’t get too rowdy now!  The answer is NO!  But before you get all up and out of your seat, hear (read) me out.  First of all let me give you my basis from where this comes from. Although, I’m not anti-Indian food, it is one of my favorite of all ethnic foods in the world.  That and Ethiopian…but Ethiopian wins over because it is much healthier.  The flavors of Indian food win, as well.  But when it comes to everyday living and what matters most is how healthy the food and the people are.

Now before you start pulling out your arguments as to why Indian food is healthy let me address what you may be thinking and why I think differently.

So, most people know that most Indians are Vegetarians…and tend to have lots of vegetarian choices in their restaurants.  Yes, very true!  However, the problem I see with most of these Vegetarian dishes is that mostly all of them are extremely high in fat. Remember Vegetarian doesn’t mean Healthy.  These high fats that they use are not only from the ghee, butter, coconut cream and oil that they use in their cooking but also from the tons of cheese that they cook in their dishes as well.  And a High Fat diet in any language in an unhealthy one.

Traditional Indian Cuisine
Traditional Indian Cuisine

Another argument that you may try to make is that the foods that are made in the homes of the traditional Indian family are very healthy and not like those that are found in the local Indian restaurants that are found in all major cities.  Ok, let’s be real.  How many people are either Indian or have Indian friends whom you frequent their homes where the mothers and grandmothers are cooking for hours from scratch.  Not even here in the US are they cooking like that on a regular basis, most likely due to the fact that modern Indian families (especially the women) are busy with corporate careers…and have assimilated very well into the American Fast Food Culture.  I have firsthand knowledge of this from the many Indian families that I met on vacation in Puerto Rico.  Most of them told me that they do not cook traditional Indian foods every single day.  And if and when they do, it is probably on the weekend just like most families who get to cook large meals and dine with the entire family.  So, for arguments sake the food we are talking about here in the kind you typically find in a modern restaurant style here in America.

These restaurants tend to make foods that swim in oil. If the food item is not roasted in a Tandoor oven which seems to create a drier food (less greasy), then the sauces and stews seem to be swimming in some type of grease.  That is most likely why it tastes so good.  Seriously, what doesn’t taste better with fat in it? Nothing!  There is nothing you can say to the way fat flavors food.  And Im not saying that I don’t like..in fact love…the flavors of Indian cuisine.  Like I said before, it is among my favorite of all foods in the world.  I love Indian food (and culture) so much, I am ready to take a flight over there to see what it is like.  Food, people, culture…everything. It’s just that fat is fat and too much is not good for you.

Another argument that you may or may not have even thought of are the health statistics of most Indian peoples.  Now even in India, where there food should be healthier and more authentic the death rates are rather low: 52.8 years for men and 53.5 years for women. But these numbers are also indicative of an under-developed society that is also plagued with a high rate of communicable (environmental) diseases.  Even those Indians who have migrated to America, their adjusted life expectancy is 67.5 years for men and 72.6 years for women.

Flavor is the Main Ingredient in Indian Food...NO DOUBT ABOUT IT!
Flavor is the Main Ingredient in Indian Food

Health problems prevalent among Indians include hypertension and cardiovascular disease, rheumatic heart disease, nutritional deficits, and high risk behavior such as alcoholism and cigarette smoking…pretty similar to the same health issues (and lifestyle behaviors) as Americans in general.  So traditional (restaurant style) Indian food is not necessarily adding on years to one’s life, let’s just put it like this. Another thing folks need to be mindful of is…Indians don’t eat a lot of green leafy veggies…especially raw.  Occasionally you will find a good Indian restaurant that serves a salad, but that is not very often.  And in my humble opinion, if you are not eating as much raw leafy veggies as you can get inside of your system there is going to be an imbalance there.  One of my favorite Indian dishes is Palak Paneer…which is in fact a spinach dish.  But let’s face it.  As good as it is, there is not much to be left in the way of nutrition.  Indians cook their food to death. Im sure this is to bring out, what would be in most cases, what is most important in their cooking:  Flavor!  Yes, and this does work.  But something about food that comes out of countries that have a high incidence of environmental diseases and plagues…like China, and countries on the Afrikan continent: Folks don’t eat food in the raw.  I think all this cooking as something to do with a mixture of those environmental factors and maybe their Ayurvedic philosophies as well. And when you travel there they tell you to make sure you eat everything that comes out of high temperature cooking…so to make sure that any problematic food borne issues are irradicated.  But Im sure you know by now, that here in the US, we have a different criterion of environmental health and eating fresh and raw foods should be eaten in abundance.  Lots of leafy green veggies and of course low fat is the better choice.

Now on the other side of that coin, Ayuvedic eating is super healthy…and you should investigate it.  Their ways of treating sickness, preventing sickness, is very holistic to me.  But once again, we are not talking about Ayurvedic cooking here.

So now that I have come off as completely Anti-Indian cuisine as I possibly can, let me explore what I think is eating Indian cuisine (from a restaurant) in a healthy way.  Veena Prasad from Chowhound recommends these ideas for healthy Indian consumption:

DO ask if you can get pappadums that are baked rather than fried. DON’T choose pakoras or samosas as they are deep fried, or see if they can bake them, as well. DO order tandoori roti instead of naan as its made with unleavened whole wheat. If they smear on butter, ask them to leave it off. DO enquire if brown rice is an option. Brown basmati rice is becoming widely available nowadays.

DO order at least one healthier dish if ordering more than one. Daal or saag (minus paneer and when cream not added) are yummy and healthy too. If the restaurant has vegan options, select one dish that is vegan to avoid excessive cream and butter.
DO order tandoori chicken or chicken tikka. They are marinated with yogurt and spices and cooked in a clay oven – relatively healthy. DONT order rich Mughlai curries. This cuisine developed in the kitchens of the Mughal emperors are made to befit a royal table. Though deservedly alluring whether you’re of royal blood or a commoner, curries made mughlai style are laced with cream. Avoid if possible. DON’T order anything with korma in the name or dishes like butter chicken, tikka masala, and malai kofta. I know, they’re yummy but they’re also laden with cream and thus lots of calories.

DO order spicy food if you can take it. The heat will kick your metabolism into gear. A vindaloo is a great option. It’s spicy and there is no cream in the gravy. But please don’t set your throat on fire.

DON’T order desserts or if you do, share. Indian desserts are rich and sweet. All that sugar will convert to fat in your body if you don’t burn the calories right away. DO end your meal with finishing up a side of yogurt. It will cool your stomach down and with its probiotic powers will help digest that yummy meal you’ve just had.

(Hope that helps!)

I think it does!  Thanks.

Friend is not healthy
Fried food is not healthy in any Language

Also, another thing I can mention about indulging in some amazing Indian food where you are not adding glut to the fire is that many many many Indian restaurants tend to be set up as a buffet. So going to the Indian all you eat buffet can be a delicious affordable option.  But that doesn’t mean you have to go up to the buffet 5 times.  By then you would have eaten all the calories you need to consume in the whole day…and maybe the next day.  And with that being said, going to the Indian buffet occasionally won’t suffer you.  In other words, its okay to indulge and have fun once in a blue moon.  Its okay to every now and then break the calories bank and go overboard…just know that for several days after that you are going not only very low cal but very low fat also.

So there, that’s my share.  I just felt the need to express myself. What I find funny is that people never want to put down something we love.  They think it is sacrilege or something like that.  But I feel like as intelligent beings we should be able to scrutinize everything and take it for what it is.  Indian food is one of the world’s most flavorful cuisines in the world.  It is just not one of the world’s most healthiest! Ashe!
