    Ivor cummins goes right into CAC, scores and percentages etc. And of course, the root cause.

    It's so unfortunate (or maybe there is a better choice word) that the medical world focuses so blindly on cholesterol and not Insulin.

    Dr. Andy Phung. Jason Fung’s dyslexic brother? :shifty::playful:

    Thanks for sharing. Lends credence to the notion that it’s all about the insulin. I also like the insulin resistance iceberg illustration that can be found on the internet.
