And, on hearth health, I heard about the calcification score (CAC) provided by CT imaging cited by Joel Kahn, that seems to be the best to actually determine heart health, beyond the usual lipids/glucose/pressure and so on tests. This because you can actually measure coronary calcification which constitutes the ultimate hazard as far as I understood.

 It's better to do it and get it off your mind and focus on worthwhile endeavors right? Even if everything's alright, it's peace of mind. 

 

Another data point came in the other day when I got an eye exam. Apparently arteries in the eye are a proxy for other arteries in the body (blockages, calcification, etc.). They had a new digital imager at the optometrist's office that takes detailed pictures of the back of your eye. All of the arteries in my eye looked great (from what I could tell and in the opinion of the optometrist). Not a guarantee that everything is perfect in my heart as well, but a good sign.

Obvious question.... Have you had your blood tested to see what your lipids are? (I have not read this entire thread).

 

Supplements that will lower lipids are *REAL* Niacin and Taurine. I take about 20-30g of Taurine a day. My total cholesterol at my last test about a month ago was VERY low. Lower than before taking Taurine and only being on Niacin.

 

I like to eat 2-3 raw eggs a day for their cholesterol which I believe is very healthy for the body.
