>>35669084 Not only is the official stance of health.gov that dietary cholesterol has no "appreciable" effect with serum, it's that of the sticky.
If you're trying to counter that, maybe being a little more contributing than "guys, the studies are probably rigged" would be beneficial. Have I checked the study sources for measurement accuracy as of this post? No.
Dietary cholesterol is still potentially helpful for a role with cell membranes though. Even more, if it increases serum cholesterol, then it potentially increases testosterone with lifting.
Is this OP saying that eggs are meat and/or that they shouldn't be eaten? That's why I'm here. The meat industry can get dunked.

meatlets, when will they learn?

You're not referring to a study though. That's the DGAC's cholesterol guidelines, based on a summary by the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology who compiled data published only after 1998, and called for more research. The DGAC misinterpreted this to say there's no evidence, despite prior evidence showing that there is a clear effect, but that the effect can look weaker than it really is depending on how you design the study
>>35669608 Learn what "confound" means in the context of statistical analysis before opening your cunt mouth, retard.
Also, the SVM rec. you linked to (but clearly didn't read) cautioned against using CIMT as a proxy without also measuring VWV. Which is exactly what the authors of my cite used, in point of fact VWV, not CIMT, was the reported outcome metric.
I honestly don't understand why people still eat meat.
If you're smart you can find non-meat alternatives that taste exactly the same but with much more nutrition and less fat. Studies have shown that vegetarians/vegans on average live longer and are healthier. Considering the amount of shit the FDA are allowed to put into your meat, it's not surprising. You can get high protein from (soya) milk, eggs, nuts, fruit, pasta, peanut butter, etc. etc.
When you eat meat you are getting second hand protein from that animal. Why not cut the fat (literally) and get it yourself?
>"B-but le epic bacon! XDD " >"Meat is murder; le tasty, tasty murder!"
>>the AHA/ACC report finds no dietary cholesterol correlations as of yet
And I explained why.
Lots of things to say about this. For one,
>Comparison of the highest category (≥1 egg/d) of egg consumption with the lowest (<1 egg/wk or never
1 egg a day was considered a high level of egg consumption and the study tries to see if consumption at this level could show measurable effects. This doesn't speak for people eating 2-3+ eggs a day. Next we see
>Of the studies conducted in diabetic patients, the pooled HR (95% CI) was 1.69 (1.09, 2.62) for overall CVD.
So for diabetic patients, CVD dramatically increased even at the level of 1 egg a day. Diabetes is one risk factor for heart disease, so egg consumption in people at a higher risk for developing CVD, which would make them easier to find associations for, found noticeably higher rates of CVD at the level of 1 egg a day.
Now we look at the studies involved in the meta-analysis and see some conflicting information. Some say eggs were associated with increased risk, some say they weren't. Let's look at one where they weren't
> the findings of the present study may be explained by the assumption that subjects with high total cholesterol concentration reduced their egg intake more than the others, and therefore we observed an inverse relationship between egg consumption and the frequency of hypercholesterolaemia. This assumption is supported by the trend among categories of egg consumption in the frequencies of intention to avoid taking a cholesterol rich diet. Therefore, a cause–effect reversal might have occurred between egg consumption and total cholesterol concentration.
>>35670159 >I don't see much wrong with eating meat maybe once a week
Sounds about right. If we're going by the blueprint of pre-historic man, we used to hunt, kill, and eat our meat about once a week anyway, so it's probably a good balance. People eating meat every day is just crazy though. Our bodies aren't built to process meat to such a degree. Pescetarian is also a very healthy diet if you can avoid mercury.
>>35669896 >Learn what "confound" means in the context of statistical analysis before opening your cunt mouth, retard. This thread is about atherosclerosis. Why would you link to that paper otherwise? >Also, the SVM rec. you linked to (but clearly didn't read) cautioned against using CIMT as a proxy without also measuring VWV What the fuck are you talking about, dimwit? "Imaging should not be performed in patients with established atherosclerotic vascular disease or if the results would not be expected to alter therapy. Serial studies of CIMT to address progression or regression are not recommended for use in clinical practice." > Which is exactly what the authors of my cite used, in point of fact VWV, not CIMT, was the reported outcome metric. Your authors say the 3D technique they used can't differentiate atherosclerotic lesions from blood pressure changes. They reported on CIMT too, but don't discuss it, so isn't that your whole point?
The authors also reference another study (used in the meta-analysis) that found a positive association between eggs and CVD, and theorized what else they thought explained the difference, which had to do with awareness of cholesterol in Japan at the time of the study, and cholesterol-lowering drugs hitting the market. (pic)
The most recent meta-analysis found that even less than an egg a day (4 a week) is positively associated with CVD, as well as diabetes.
>>35670127 >you can get high protein from (soya) milk along with man tits >eggs, nuts, peanut butter along with an assload of fat by comparison >fruit, pasta lol
The reason "high protein" diets are considered bad by scientific studies is because high protein means something totally different to the scientists than to /fit/. /fit/ means lean meat and fish. scientists mean a typical fast food american diet, which is higher in protein than your daily needs, as well as high in lots of other shit. You're not wrong that we do put a lot of shit in our meat and it needs to stop, but we do it with more than just meat, and it all needs to stop. And vegetarians do not live notably longer than meat eaters, whereas pescetarians outlive both by a pretty large margin.
To then say that a plant based diet or meat alternatives are unquestionably better or more efficient / healthy than a grass fed organic steak, or fresh salmon or mackerel plucked from the rivers and oceans is fucking retarded.
Mollusk, offal, fresh oily fish, and grass fed live stock boast some of the most readily available, nutritionally dense foods per portion. without having to resort to consuming over 800 calories of nuts or seeds or over a kilo of broccoli.
How are people still using these loosely documented "vegans live longer" studies as irrefutable fact? Break it.
It's not hard to understand that the majority of the meat eaters in the western world are consuming meat feast pizzas and mc burgers at levels beyond recommendation.
Comparatively, those that are choosing an alternative dietary route (vegetarians or vegans) will mostly be doing so out of health conscious decisions (regardless of how effective it might be). As such they are actively avoiding some of the worst, commonly consumed foods by the average populous. This is where the benefits come from. Skipping fast foods or syrup coffees etc, not forgoing a fresh fish or steak from a grass fed, EU (non hormone injected) animal.
>>35670553 This. You could be vegetarian and eat poptarts all day. It isn't inherently healthier, it's just that vegetarians/vegans eat more vegetables and avoid fast food, and are more likely to be health conscious in general.
>>35670553 >As such they are actively avoiding some of the worst, commonly consumed foods by the average populous. This is where the benefits come from. Skipping fast foods or syrup coffees etc, not forgoing a fresh fish or steak from a grass fed, EU (non hormone injected) animal. Nice claim, but sadly with no foundation.
We would need studies that correct for fast food consumption to verify this.
>>35670543 >Everybody has read enough history Read history? >to know how intelligent people who promote censorship are. First of all, they are indeed intelligent, unquestionably. Secondly, the only thing that would even remotely resemble censorship in the context would be rallying people to report vegancuck threads. Claiming that showing someone (who fucking asked about it) how to hide cuck threads is "censorship" shows everyone how fucking intelligent you are, you stupid fucking cuck. Soy made your balls shrink and activated almonds turned your brain into manure.
>>35670950 Fat, saturated fat and cholesterol do not cause atherosclerosis/heart disease in the first place. Obesity, body fat percentage and lack of physical activity cause atherosclerosis/heart disease. Sure, consumption of cholesterol, fats and saturated fat is linked to obesity and heart disease, but those two things are actually both secondary outcomes of living in a society where there is an overabundance of calorie-dense foods.
The fact is, for the majority of individuals, as long as they stay at a healthy body fat percentage and are physically active, fats saturated fats and cholesterol not only do not raise triglycerides and bad cholesterol, but they oftentimes LOWER bad cholesterol and triglycerides, which is OPTIMAL for cardiovascular health.
>This study examines a group of male distance runners, one group is put on an extremely high fat diet with plenty of saturated fats, the other on a high carbohydrate diet. >the high fat group experienced an increase in the ratio of HDL, good cholesterol, to LDL, bad cholesterol, as well as a decrease in triglycerides >http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6436637
This is not merely anecdotal evidence. I could point to nearly any professional or amateur athlete who eats a balanced omnivorous diet. These people are lean and physically active by nature. Examples that come to mind are Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps.
People who are lean and physically active do not and cannot experience heart disease. Do you ever hear of a man at 10 or 15% body fat or a woman at 22% body fat receiving open heart surgery or dying of heart disease without outside drug or genetic influences? It doesn't happen.
Finally, I will cite my own blood work- I am a 20 year old male and eat a diet of around 30% fat, 15% protein and 55% carbohydrate. My saturated fat intake is near 45 grams daily.
I am lean, around 11 percent body fat, do light cardio on occasion, and lift weights several times weekly. my blood work: >http://imgur.com/B1wuTfg
>>35673144 >>35668841 I must note that as an omnivore who consumes 500 mg of cholesterol, nearly 50g of saturated fat and several servings of animal food daily, my cholesterol levels are not only excellent, but they are far better than most raw vegans can every strive to achieve.
My triglycerides are around 30-40% lower than the average vegan, my HDL is 10-20% higher, and my LDL around 10-20% lower.
Additonally my testosterone levels are in the 90%+ percentile for a 20 year old man.
Both sides of my family have had histories of heart disease and stroke. My great grandfather died of stroke, my uncles are both overweight and on cholesterol-lowering medication.
However, my sister, my father, my mother and I have all stayed optimally lean and at a healthy weight, and none of us have ever had to go on statins or any other medication for heart disease. In fact, my father's cholesterol had gotten bad enough that he almost needed to go on medication, but upon dropping 20 pounds of fat, his cholesterol returned to the ideal range.
>>35674235 VG got extremely butthurt at a comment I left on his video right after it got posted. I wrote that my LDL cholesterol was 66 and my HDL 61, to which he responded, >What is 66 you fucking idiot? 66 be anything, it means nothing. I could say I'm 66 tall
He said this despite using graphics in his video where the units for measuring cholesterol are nanograms per deciliter, which is a standard for measuring cholesterol concentration.
The numbers 61 and 66 are blatantly meant to be ng/dl based on the context and nature of the situation.
I also told VG that I have better blood lipid and testosterone levels than DurianRider, which is in fact true, by a long shot.
He didn't respond again after calling me an idiot.
>>35674535 Lel what a moron. The dude uses Google Scholar to highlight a few abstract sentences and assumes everyone else, like him, will take it as religious fact just because it's on pub med.
I'm a biochemist/molecular biologist with a focus in biophysics. I comment often on his videos in a scholarly manner (in layman's terms), and continually stress the point that you could find peer reviewed research proving just about anything. He deletes my comments almost every time, usually after replying once and looking like a complete dumbass. The guy is a retard.
>>35674604 >>35674535 I don't know why you guys even entertain that madman. You realize he's probably clinically insane? A likely psychopath with horrible genetics and a pathetic body and mind. All these horrendous vegan/vegetarian threads are full of ignoramuses like him too if not him himself.
>>35674735 You're right... it just pains me so much to read the comments and see stuff like "amazing! so much reliable info... A+ content... wow you really did ur research!... etc." that I waste precious hours of my life to try and reach at least SOMEONE with logic. Doesn't work, I suppose I'll stop. Although I do get some sort of sick pleasure out of picturing him fuming and replying to hundreds of comments while sitting at his desk and staring at action figures in his mom's house kek.
>>35674735 Most vegans are defective human beings. They are so wrapped up in the moral/emotional aspect of eating meat that their confirmation bias completely blinds them to actual science and anecdotal evidence that refutes their opinions.
>>35674828 Maybe, but I issued a task to all- find me someone who is lean (I now define as <18% for a male and <25% for a female) and physically active who has developed heart disease or type 2 diabetes without the influence of drugs or some rare genetic enigma
I only eat meat i hunt. I went trolling yesterday and got 6 80cm+ Kingfish. Thats literally 3 months of gains alone, and on top of that, i kill the kangaroos that hang around my back fence and eat them as well. In the last week ive gotten like $2000 worth of meat for myself. Game you hunt yourself is also higher in gains.
>>35668841 You are retards, as long as you have a healthy active lifestyle cholesterol won't just add up in your system. Cholesterol is produced naturally in your body, if you eat cholesterol, your body produces less. Cholesterol is dangerous only if you are a couch potato. if you don't trust me, eat a lot of eggs and after a month have yourself checked. If results are bad, just change diet. Unless this board is filled with 45 year old men and women who never exercised in their life i think this is a safe experiment.
