by Mike Mutzel


New study finds just 6% of Adults under 65 and only 0.4% of those over 65 have optimal cardiometabolic health, putting them at increased risk for infections.

Statistics clearly show cardiovascular and metabolic diseases claim at least five times more lives than Omicron; if we’re serious about saving lives and hospital capacity, why are we still ignoring this?

Even more, Public Health researchers in Illinois created this map overlaying regions of the country with high rates of lifestyle created diseases (Obesity) and Omicron deaths—the image speaks volumes.

We discuss more about:

-New data showing Omicron is mild for those who prioritize cardiometabolic health

-Sustainable ways to keep people healthy long-term (beyond endless masking and infinity boosters)

-Why Men and people over 65 have the most to benefit by making healthier nutrition and lifestyle choices, now!


Time Stamps:


0:00 93.8% of US adults have poor cardiometabolic health.

0:20 .4% of adults over the age of 65 have optimal metabolic health.

1:13 The average waist circumference of adults between 20 and 65 has increased nearly 3 inches over the last 20 years.

1:27 Excess body fat is the main driver of cardiovascular and metabolic related health issues.

6:35 LDL cholesterol value is inaccurate in the presence of high triglycerides.

7:08 Triglycerides tell your metabolic health story.

7:28 Lipoproteins and remnant lipoproteins worsen cardiovascular disease and do not need to be oxidized, like LDL cholesterol, to cause damage.

7:57 High triglyceride levels are synonymous with high remnant triglyceride-rich lipoproteins.

8:22 78.1% of adults over 65 have metabolic syndrome.

9:40 23% of adults between 20 and 34 have metabolic syndrome.

11:33 15.3% of adults have optimal metabolic health.

11:40 3% of all men and 10% of all women have optimal metabolic health.

14:15 Adiposity has increased from 47% to 61% over the past 20 years.

14:23 Lipid levels have stayed the same, but medication use has increased. Diabetic drug usage has doubled.

15:10 There have been recent increases in blood glucose, adiposity, deaths from heart disease, diabetes, and metabolic-related diseases, like cancer, dementia and stroke.

15:50 Move your muscles every day. Aim for 10 to 12,000 steps per day. Try to do resistance training, hitting every major muscle group at least 4 days per week. Get very cold. Do sauna. Get sun. Sleep well. Compress your feeding window. Eat lower carb.
