‘It isn’t only what you eat, it’s also the way you eat it.’ Dr Kendrick will suggest that how we eat our food is extremely important to our health. If we eat on the run, without being relaxed, our metabolic system will still be switched to catabolism e.g. burning up and using energy. But when we eat we need to be relaxed so that our anabolic (digesting/storing) system is switched on.
If we try to eat whilst under stress we create an metabolic ‘battleground’ where the stress hormones e.g. adrenaline, cortisol, growth hormone are battling against the hormones of digestion – mainly insulin. (Cortisol and adrenaline are directly antagonstic to insulin in their metabolic effects). When this happens the level of blood sugar, free radicals, triglycerides and insulin all spike at very high and damaging levels.
This talk will outline evidence to support this hypothesis, suggesting how eating under stress can contribute to occlusive arterial plaques/atherosclerosis and heart disease.
Dr Malcolm Kendrick, MD, MbChB, MRCGP wrote “The Great Cholesterol Con“, which debunks the cult of cholesterol bashing and its bogus treatment and more recently “Doctoring Data”, . Dr Kendrick graduated from Aberdeen University in Scotland. He currently works as a GP near Manchester with a special interest in cardiology. He developed a European system for continuing medical education working with the European Society of Cardiology and the European Commission in Brussels. Last year he was elected to Who’s Who for his publishing and campaigning against the cholesterol hypothesis and the overuse of statins. He is a peer-reviewer for the British Medical Journal, and writes articles for a number of medical magazines and journals. He is an active member of The International Network of Cholesterol Skeptics www.thincs.org and considers himself a hopeful skeptic. drmalcolmkendrick.org
