Monologue

Dr. Wallach starts the show citing the latest studies on cholesterol. For years doctors have been touting the benefits of lowering blood levels of LDL and increasing levels of HDL to promote heart health. The lastest studies indicate that increasing HDL does not promote heart health. In fact there appears to be no benefit at all. While increasing evidence indicates that lowering LDL does not promote heart health.

 

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach continue to discuss Doug's recent experiences diealing with the medical system following his father's lung cancer diagnosis. To date Doug has discussed how chemo and radiation therapy cause low platelet counts that resulted in bleeds. The final treatment pushed platelets so low that Doug's father nearly bled out completely. Resulting in a helicopter ride to and ICU. While his father was in the ICU unit Doug observed posted rules on ICU visitor etiquette. Such as speaking in lowered tones, cell phones turned off or ringers off at least, too many visitors in the ICU rooms at once and a few days old infant brought into the area. Not only did staffers at the hospital also ignore the posted rules but did nothing to enforce them even when asked.
