How Blood Got Clots

“What we’re fighting against is the idea that dietary fat clogging arteries is the problem. What happens is we lose the function of the lipoproteins to deliver fats to cells and tissues. So fat doesn’t
clog our arteries like what happens in the pipes underneath your sink. This kind of thinking is absurd, given the fact that we now know that fat does not travel in these little blobs of fat in our arteries. It’s completely encased in lipoproteins, which are fat-soluble. It cannot clog our arteries any more than red blood cells can clog our arteries.”  – Dr. Cate Shanahan
