    I’m Jamaican as well and I’ll have you know you made me spit out my juice
    when you said that thing about blood clot! Thank you, very much hahah! It
    is true though, blood clot (or more linguistically correct : blood clawt)
    is a bad word here. Funny stuff

    This video is fantastic, thank you! It really helped give me a clear
    picture of what atherosclerosis actually is, and all the steps. Sometimes
    books and words are just a bit overwhelming. Do you know of any novel ideas
    for drug targets in atherosclerosis? Maybe to stop the accumulation of foam
    cells, or to stop the macrophages sending signals for more to come? As most
    treatments target lowering LDLs, I’m not sure of a new idea!

      Rosie i like your idea in part of novel targets.
      also, let us look for anti oxidants .

    Calcium isnt involved in this. And there are ldl-receptors in the
    endothelial cells! Atherosclerosis is hard due to the necrosis induced by
    hypoxia inside the clot with a necrotic core. There doesnt need to occur an
    injury. 🙂 otherwise great!

    The best way to explain Atherosclerosis. Thank you so much for helping us
    understand this very well. Excellent.

    The heart disease epidemic is getting worse. Studies have shown that even
    children have fatty streaks on their arteries because of all the animal
    products and other processed foods they eat as soon as they’re weaned off
    mother’s milk.

    AVOID foods (including oils) high in saturated fat, trans fat and
    cholesterol. Eat a HCLF whole foods vegan diet to reverse any arterial
    plaque build up you have and prevent an early death from atherosclerosis
    (and other ‘diseases of affluence’).

    Psych Tech student in Med Surg. portion of Nursing Sciences. This
    explanation helped so much! The textbook can only show so much, this demo
    made it crystal clear. Thanks again Khan Academy!!

    11:10 – atherosclerosis doesn’t mean hardening of the arteries.
    Arteriosclerosis means hardening of the arteries. Atherosclerosis would
    mean hardening of fatty plaque (that obviously results in hardening of
    blood vessels and/or arteries)

      +Rathernot Disclose “However, damage or infection can roughen the lining
      and lead to atherosclerosis, the hardening of the arteries by accumulation
      of fatty deposits.” – Campbell Biology

      Same thing, to be honest. Tomato, tomato. Even if you are technically
      right, the distinction between the two terms is just that — technical. I
      just wanted to reply to your comment so that someone reading the comments
      before watching the video doesn’t discredit the video based on this comment
      and decides to not watch it, as that is something I would probably do.
