Fundamental Health with Paul Saladino, MD

Nov 21, 2022

This week, Paul interviews board certified cardiologist, Michael Twyman. Michael comments on Paul’s blood lipids and they both chat about apoB, cardiovascular risks, oxidized LDL, and, of course, seed oils. They both share what they believe the true indicators of cardiovascular risk really are, aside from LDL. 

A note from Paul: Throughout my training and practice as a physician I have come to one very disappointing conclusion:  Western medicine isn’t helping people lead better lives. Now that I’ve realized this, I’ve become obsessed with understanding what makes us healthy or ill. I want to live the best life I can and I want to be able to share this knowledge with others so that they can do the same. This podcast is the result of my relentless search to understand the roots of chronic disease. If you want to know how to live the most radical life possible I hope you’ll join me on this journey.
