What’s Behind the #1 Cause of Death? (psst: it’s not cholesterol)

WORKER BEES’ DAILY BITES
Mark wants us to make sure we share a very important study about inflammation and heart disease. Sisson’s been grousing about this for years, and you can read some of his choice thoughts  on why cholesterol is just one of many important factors for heart health. Cholesterol drugs aren’t the best approach to reducing coronary heart disease rates (CHD is our #1 killer). But still totally the best way to afford a house in the Hamptons.
The “Hot” Heart Disease Marker
Men who have a particular antibody indicating widespread inflammation have triple the risk of heart disease .
As usual, they’ll get around to testing the women  when they feel like it.
Nevertheless, triple is a huge deal. Inflammation is also linked to type 2 diabetes  and arthritis  (which increases the risk for heart attacks as well). In fact, metabolism, immunity, and obesity are all linked to inflammation. These issues are often referred to as the umbrella-ish Syndrome X .
What We Need Is Another C-O-M-M-I-T-T-E-E!
The FDA released a statement  addressing the can’t-keep-track-of-all-the-scandals issue. Their brilliant solution? An oversight committee! Aha! Perfect! Except, isn’t the FDA an oversight committee? Mark’s Daily Apple predicts a long and delicious line of self-sustaining bureaucratic complexity coming to a tax hike near you.
Michael Moore Is At it Again
Mike is taking on Big Pharma and HMOs with the soon-to-debut documentary, Sicko . He was on Oprah today and he’s hitting Letterman and Leno next. Will you be weighing in on Sicko?
