Location: Your computer

We have known for decades that elevated cholesterol and triglycerides will increase our risk for heart disease, stroke and other vascular diseases, but we now know much more on how they are connected to diet, weight, and diabetes. You may know what your cholesterol and triglyceride levels are, but what do these numbers mean? What function do cholesterol and triglycerides serve in the body? How does the amount of circulating blood fat affect your health today and in the future? What is the most effective way to manage both your cholesterol and triglyceride levels? In this noon-hour webinar, Dr. John Farquhar will draw from both old and new research studies in his discussion of these questions. There will be time set aside at the end of the webinar for additional questions and answers.

Instructor: John Farquhar MD, C.F. Rehnborg Professor in Disease Prevention, Emeritus (Active), Professor of Medicine and Health Research and Policy, Emeritus (Active), Founder of the Stanford Health Improvement Program.

FREE WEBINAR: Men's Health: "Locker Room" Lectures on Real Issues
Viewable: Any time
Instructor: John Farquhar, MD
Location: Your computer
Not BeWell berry eligible

The truth will out!! Research tells us this about men: we do not work as hard for better health as women. We socialize less, we find it difficult to make changes in daily living (eating, exercise and play), and we have special health needs. You’ll be sorry if your body falls apart or your brain looks like a pickled cauliflower. New information says that we can do more to push back the ticking clock. The truth is women still live longer, but we men can improve our health and prevent much of the chronic illness (including cancer, heart attack, stroke, memory loss and erectile dysfunction) that creeps up on us as we pass the hurdle of reaching 40, 50—and older.

In some countries, prostate cancer occurs at 1/20th the rate of that in the US. There are reasons for this that suggest we can do much better on reducing rates of prostate and other cancers (and not through more PSA testing!). There is advanced thinking in the area of nutrition—not all vegetables are created equal! So, let’s talk biochemistry. Why are certain trace materials (phytochemicals) so important, and how can we balance the varied families of vegetables (i.e. cruciferous, onion/garlic, soy, etc.), and add the right supplements to get what we need? There is much to explain and much to learn, so, join me in this 2–session webinar to talk openly (locker-room style) about our health. Anyone who cares about men and their health is welcome to join.
