Carl Franklin and Richard Morris research the elusive cholesterol. Is it bad? Good? Why so much bickering? The results may surprise you. Also, Carl got his blood work results after 2 months on the ketogenic diet. There's great news. As far as potentially bad news, that's what was discussed. You guessed it. Cholesterol.
Richard referred to the units for fasting insulin being pico IU, but the correct unit is “microunits per milliliter” (mcU/ml or mIU/ml). Richard also mentioned that the Norwegian Hunt 2 study followed 5,000 individuals for 10 years, but it was actually 50,000 individuals for 10 years.
