Oxidative Stress and Cholesterol – Chris Masterjohn

What’s better than a brilliant young mind and a PhD?  Having that PhD in nutritional science and a desire to challenge modern science as it relates to nutrition and health.

Chris Masterjohn, PhD is also a great public speaker, always presenting with much exuberance.

Listen to Dr. Masterjohn discussing inflammation, Oxidative Stress, Cholesterol, Atherosclerosis and Heart Disease with Dr. Mercola.

Cholesterol and lipoproteins can serve as markers for cardiac risk, but we should not think of them as causative agents. Rather, it is the oxidative degradation of these normally essential molecules that better describes the root cause of atherosclerosis and plaque formation in blood vessels. This is how we all should be thinking about cholesterol.
