Episode Info

Episode Info:

Biochemical Engineer and Fat Emperor, Ivor Cummins, is today’s guest interview. Ivor shares with us why the coronary artery calcium (CAC) score is the most reliable measure of heart disease. He explains what the CAC score tells us in terms of heart attack risk and how it actually measures disease progression rather than risk factors. We then find out about why seemingly healthy people die prematurely of heart attacks, where to get tested and reversing/slowing progression of disease. We also go into discussing other useful markers, calcium supplements, diet, as well as other factors including ApoE4 genotypes and gum infections.
