Hi, my name's Dr Warrick Bishop. I'm a cardiologist and welcome to my Healthy Heart Minute.
This is an interesting one.
Did you know coffee can raise your cholesterol? Yep, it can. There's a thing in coffee called cafestol, which is one of the compounds within coffee that literally interacts with our bodies' cholesterol mechanisms, and can raise cholesterol. It's worth being aware of.
It's most likely to be a problem if you are using French pressed coffee or plunger coffee, 'cause that seems to generate the highest levels of cafestol.
I've done a podcast on that very topic and it's attached to this video. You may wish to check it out. On the same podcast, I talk a little bit about pacemakers, which are being evolved and developed, that can literally just be put in the heart without any wires or boxes under the skin. These little pacemakers can go into the heart as a simple single device and provide pacing for individuals in the appropriate circumstance. I touch on those as well in the very same podcast. Click on the link and check it out.
Otherwise, I wish you the very best. Please live as well as possible, for as long as possible. Take care and bye for now!
