WHAT RUNNING CAN DO FOR THE HEART

In essence, the scans showed that marathon training did not cancel out the depredations of age, longstanding bad health habits or a family history of cardiac problems, Dr. Taylor said.

On the other hand, the scientists found no relationship between the number of hours the runners trained or how fast they ran and the levels of plaque in their arteries, indicating that marathon training had not directly damaged any of these racers’ hearts.”—Gretchen Reynolds, NY Times

STUDY QUESTIONS FAT AND HEART DISEASE LINK

The smaller, more artery-clogging particles are increased not by saturated fat, but by sugary foods and an excess of carbohydrates, Dr. Chowdhury said. “It’s the high carbohydrate or sugary diet that should be the focus of dietary guidelines,” he said. “If anything is driving your low-density lipoproteins in a more adverse way, it’s carbohydrates.”—Anahad O’Connor, NY Times

    “The single macronutrient approach is outdated,” said Dr. Hu, who was not involved in the study. “I think future dietary guidelines will put more and more emphasis on real food rather than giving an absolute upper limit or cutoff point for certain macronutrients.”

    YES!!!!

    I happen to be studying digestion, absorption, metabolism, etc. right now in physiology, so if anyone wants to get together and talk about nutrient regulation, ketone production, etc… I’m your gal : )

    Jade,
    This is exactly how I asked out Lisa on our fist date. I sauntered up to her in a smokey bar filled with dangerous men and wild women. She sat alone not seeming to have a care in the world or an interest in the circus around her. She radiated beauty and I radiated deadliness. When I got within range I whispered these magical words, “What you say we blow this joint, go get a cup of coffee and talk about nutrient regulation, ketone production, metabolism, digestion and, if we have enough time, absorption?”

    Lisa looked at me with those big, beautiful eyes and said, “You had me at ketone production.”

    The rest is history.
