Dr. Michael Ozner And His Mediterranean Diet Approach To Heart Health

Filed under: Health — @ March 19, 2009

Mediterranean diet fan Dr. Michael Ozner explains his “heart hoax” theory

Heart health is on the minds of millions of Americans who deal with chest pains, heart attacks, and clogged arteries each year. My own father had quintuple heart bypass surgery in 2008 and heart disease was one of the major contributors to the premature death of my brother Kevin at the age of 41 in October. This is serious business and there are lots of health experts out there who are sharing about how to prevent heart health calamities from happening to begin with. Although we may not agree with all the advice provided by these “experts,” there is useful information to be learned. One such expert is today’s podcast interview guest.

In Episode 237 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from Dr. Michael Ozner, author of a fascinating new book entitled The Great American Heart Hoax: Lifesaving Advice Your Doctor Should Tell You About Heart Disease Prevention. He is quite a dynamic speaker and very confident about the subjects he talks about, including why CAT scans are dangerous, why traditional heart procedures are likely unnecessary, why it’s unnecessary for many people to take statin drugs to reduce cholesterol, the importance of particle size and particle number, and the importance of HDL and triglcyerides. But he also has some ideas that run contrary to livin’ la vida low-carb since he is a strong promoter of the high-carb, low-fat Mediterranean diet. Over and over again, you’ll hear Dr. Ozner push this way of eating as the superior diet for managing weight and health. This 45-minute interview gives you a lot of information to chew on–even if you disagree with some of what you hear.
