Chemical engineer Ivor Cummins is our interview guest today in Episode 1462 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
Ivor Cummins BE(Chem) CEng MIEI completed a Biochemical Engineering degree in 1990. He has since spent over 25 years in corporate technical leadership and management positions and was shortlisted in 2015 as one of the top 6 of 500 applicants for “Irish Chartered Engineer of the Year”. Ivor’s career specialty has been leading large worldwide teams in complex problem-solving activity. Since 2012 Ivor has been intensively researching the root causes of modern chronic disease. A particular focus has been on cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity. He increasingly shares his research through public speaking engagements at various health conferences around the world. Most recently he presented at the Irish National Institute of Preventative Cardiology (NIPC) conference – and went on to defend low carb in an hour-long debate (against four professors of medicine/nutrition!).
Ivor’s recently published book “Eat Rich, Live Long” (co-authored with preventative medicine expert Jeffry Gerber MD, FAAFP), details the conclusions of their shared research. It comprehensively addresses the actions needed to reverse our modern disease epidemics. All of Ivor’s public lectures and interviews are available on his YouTube channel, where around 2 million views have been recorded to date: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPn4FsiQP15nudug9FDhluA. His blog and other content are available at http://www.thefatemperor.com/subscribe where subscription is free and the science is rock-solid.
Listen in today as Jimmy and Ivor talk about the new science that brought about a new understanding of ApoB/LDLp role in cardiovascular disease and how to tell when it is important, and when it is not, why we've been fooled by total cholesterol , how the total cholesterol scare was found to be crap so it was dumped for the sexy new LDL cholesterol, and why we now know that was utterly misleading.....so the new terror is ApoB/LDLp counts, the new Cholesterol Guidelines from AHA/ACC in the US - what's new, particularly around CAC, recent conferences e.g. Low Carb Mallorca and the guests Ivor interviewed there for his podcast series, the documentary Widow Maker, his new book, and much more.
