    Another tip-top lecture from Ivor. Interesting stuff on blood test results wrt risk factors with lipids.
    This is why it is so important for us to understand markers, proxy markers, risk factors and actual damage that can be seen. Just a pity that the CAC scan is not part of the MOT offered on the NHS.

    Yup. Along with insulin. I mean CAC & insulin? Pfft. Who wants to check those, right?

    Not having a moan about the individual people in the system, but in recent years I’ve really lost faith in the NHS as a machine. Sometimes it feels like we completely ignore the simplest and most efficacious screening for the ailments that affect us most.

    Agreed. And yet how much is spent on e.g lipid tests/statin drugs? My GP told me it was preventative medicine and I replied that assessing risk should come first and that current assessment models are poo (or words to that effect).
    I'm still mad about how and why that consult happened and I too have lost faith. I so sometimes think if they're getting the simple things wrong what on earth are they doing with the difficult stuff?

    Sadly I often feel that “the system” doesn’t actually want to prevent tooooo many people from getting chronically sick. Mainly because early awareness and prevention probably don’t keep the money flowing into all the right pockets. I’m derailing a little though...

    I've not got to the conspiracy theory yet but the sheer dogmatism and lack of momentum? Yeah, I'm there.

    Yeah I know what you mean. I don’t think any of it is a conspiracy. More just the natural course of capitalism.

    Excellent thank you @Indy51 complex but worth the effort.
    @Goonergal and @DJC3 some very interesting stuff on insulin and ketones and effect on mitochondria.

    I think this is one of Ivor's best as he dabbled in several areas. I try to have one video to hand that explains toa sceptic many points, this and Sarah Halbergs Tedx are my favourites.

    Thanks, Shelley. To be frank, I skipped over this thinking 'hmmm, this is something I probably do not need to watch' but your comment made me curious so I did watch. Some people are just natural educators and this nurse is certainly a natural. This video would be great as a sticky for newbies because, as you say, it doesn't only speak to Fat loss stalls.
