Subject:         Fully Raw Christina - questionable blood results?
Date: September 30, 2014 at 6:12 pm PST

I was shocked when l saw Christina’s blood results. She looks healthy on the outside but it looks like the dreaded high carb high fructose low fat diet is slowly catching up with her. I was most disappointed with the doctor because he doesn’t make mention of many things which are clearly alarm bells. Another 80-10-10 girl also had highly questionable blood work also.

I hope we can discuss this subject maturely without silly attacks, so lets talk like adults without the over emotional snark. Lets hope we can all behave and discuss these things like reasonable people.

I am presenting this post in as fair a way as l can.

[u]Comments on Christina’s highly questionable blood work[/u]

Iron levels are on the low side of normal. Hmmm, contrary to what this doctor says, it is certainly not ideal or good for reasons l won’t go into right now.

Now to the real issues, the lipids.

1. Christina has very low LDL cholesterol, but excessively low LDL is linked to various health problems related to brain functioning, aggression, hormone production and serotonin. When you read the medical research there is cause for concern. Christina certainly does not show any signs of these symptoms online, but according to the medical research it potentially puts her in a risk category and she would be advised to keep aclose eye on her health in the future.

2. Christina has low HDL, and even though she has a low fat diet which negates potential effects for CVD, she has a decreased ability for the body to transport lipids needed for brain function and various other roles. This is cause for concern and could be interpreted as signs of the wheels starting to fall off with this highly questionable diet imo.

3. Christina’s total cholesterol is very low. Once again, the abundance of medical literature raises grave concern over this problem, namely the association with the potential for mental imbalance and early death. Now…...association does not equal cause, however the concern is that cholesterol serves an important function in the brain for numerous processes, and the negative effects associated with low cholesterol is well documented in the literature. Of course much of the medical literature on vegan sites and in the mainstream will go contrary to this conclusion, and no public mention will ever bring up the new literature which talks about these potential problems because the drug companies want to sell drug lowering medication and will consequently keep the doctors in the dark about the more recent findings, but these results of Christina are major cause for concern.

4. Now…...another tell tale sign that the wheels are falling off for Christina is that she has dyslipidemia (high triglyceride levels) likely from a high fructose, high carb low fat diet. This is really the red flag, and when you put all the results in context l would say Christina is heading for a downward slide unless she changes a few things.

---Fructose overconsumption causes dyslipidemia and ectopic lipid deposition in healthy subjects with and without a family history of type 2 diabetes---

I want Christina to see another doctor who will give her a wake up call, because quite frankly, l think she needs it. I could post medical paper after medical paper which will raise alarm bells about Christina’s results, but it would take all day to do.

I also wonder how the low HDL has affected Christina’s fatty acid profile. It would be interesting to know her EPA/DHA scores also.

Once again, much of the medical literature released to doctors and the public on lipids and cholesterol is highly flawed and does not tell the true story behind what is going on. The peer reviewed medical literature now clearly states on numerous occasions that the drug companies and food industry has suppressed info so only dubious literature supporting the low fat low cholesterol diet is in the public domain. There seems to have been lots of lobbying by low fat food industry and drug companies selling cholesterol/lipid lowering drugs as the dominant players pushing their dubious agendas. It'salso no coincidence that the low fat low cholesterolpromotors conveniently leave important sections out of the studies they quote which does not support their agenda. Folks...we are getting a very one sided story from the medical profession and the media will never bring up the landmark studies which go contrary to drug company and food industry agendas. This is no conspiracy theory, this is fact!!!

Hey….you think l make this up? Ugh ugh. I used to support low fat as a brainwashed vegan puppet, but then l spent 4 or more solid months (probably closer to half a year solid) reading the medical literature and was SHOCKED!!! I didn’t just read 2 or 3 studies, l read 200+ studies for and against high and low fat diets, and l can confidently say there IS a problem.

Some people can do well on low fat, but given Christina’s results, it is highly questionable whether she will be able to sustain on this diet. I look at this in a cold and clinical context and are going solely by the figures and the literature. I also put it to people that Christina’s doctor may not be aware of the literature of which l speak because he is getting info from the drug reps which support their low fat low cholesterol agenda. Oh yes folks…..this is not something we can put under the carpet, this is something we need to keep an eye on in the future so we can learn more about the effects of raw vegan diets.
