Hi, my name's Dr Warrick Bishop and welcome to my Healthy Heart Minute. Today, we are talking about how cholesterol gets into the artery.
Historically, we've often thought of the lumen of the artery carrying cholesterol and that cholesterol coming out of the lumen and entering through the whining of the artery through the endothelium, generally at points of stress or strain or sheer force within the artery.
What if instead of the cholesterol coming, not coming from inside the artery, but coming from external and carried to the artery wall by tiny little blood vessels that actually supply the artery wall. A different way for cholesterol to get in the places that we see it. It's an interesting concept. It's been advanced by a researcher called SaBuCo.
I've put a podcast together that's attached to this video and if that's something that interests you, check it out 'cause I think it's fascinating.
For now, however, I'm gonna wish you the very best. Live as well as possible, for as long as possible. Take care!
