This month we have a lot going on that will limit our participation with the site.
- I’m (hopefully) in the last stages of the book and looking to lock the manuscript soon. I told my publisher that I’d be very head down through August to make it happen.
- Siobhan is off this week, and once returning will be helping us with the launch of a new project.
But never fear, we have some great material for you to check out in the mean time.
I just had an interview with AdapNation on lipids (likely to be released next week). But they had first came on to my radar a little earlier with this very extensive article they wrote on cholesterol. It’s actually very visual and layperson-friendly, so I thought I’d given them a shoutout.
Nathan Owens is on a Research Tear
As always, we’re interested in lipoproteins and their participation in the immune response (if you haven’t already read the amazing piece on this from Siobhan Huggins, do so right now!). I’ve been impressed with many new studies and ideas Nathan has been discussing lately with this topic on social media. Here’s one thread worth reading through:
Lipoproteins are part of the immune system. All drugs I’ve looked at so far (Statin, CETPi, PCSK9i, Niacin) have pleiotropic effects that modulate the immune response to endotoxins, or change the function of Lipoproteins in clearing endotoxins. @siobhan_huggins @DaveKeto— Nathan Owens (@NathanEqualsOne) August 7, 2019
Riveting Interview with Biochemist Patrick Theut on CAC
This question comes up a lot – can CAC be reversed? My answer has continued to be “I don’t know.” But perhaps the most incredible story I’ve seen to date comes from this episode of Ivor Cummins interviewing Patrick Theut on his own journey with this very question.
