Welcome to my podcast. I am Doctor Warrick Bishop, and I want to help you to live as well as possible for as long as possible. I’m a practising cardiologist, best-selling author, keynote speaker, and the creator of The Healthy Heart Network. I have over 20 years as a specialist cardiologist and a private practice of over 10,000 patients.

Dr. Warrick Bishop discusses two important health stories in the podcast. First, he disagrees with a US task force recommendation against screening children for high cholesterol, citing evidence that early treatment can help those with a genetic condition called familial hypercholesterolemia. Second, he outlines findings from a large trial showing that testosterone therapy for men aged 45-80 does not increase risks of heart issues or prostate cancer. However, it may slightly raise risks of atrial fibrillation, kidney injury, and pulmonary embolism. Interestingly, it also seemed to increase fracture risk, possibly because the men felt better and became more physically active.


  • Dr. Warrick Bishop is a cardiologist and CEO of the Healthy Heart Network, focused on helping people live long and healthy lives by understanding factors like blood pressure, weight, and cholesterol.
  • One in five Australians suffer a heart attack each year, many of which could be prevented through lifestyle changes.
  • Early treatment of elevated cholesterol levels in children with familial hypercholesterolemia may help prevent early heart attacks later in life.
  • Genetic testing can accurately identify familial hypercholesterolemia and enable early treatment from ages 7-8.
  • A large study found no increased risks of heart attack, stroke, or prostate cancer from daily testosterone gel treatment in men aged 45-80 over 2 years.
  • Testosterone treatment was associated with a small increased risk of atrial fibrillation, acute kidney injury, and pulmonary embolism.
  • Counterintuitively, testosterone treatment was linked to an increased risk of fractures.
  • Increased activity and muscle from feeling better on testosterone may explain the fracture finding.
  • Testosterone improved sexual function and well-being without major health risks.
  • The Healthy Heart Network offers membership to help understand heart health risks and positive steps people can take.

Australia, like the rest of the western world, has a heart problem.

Over 9 million people around the world die from heart disease every year.

Every 10 minutes, someone in Australia suffers a heart attack. And 21 lives are lost daily because of it.

The devastating fact in all of this is… 

Almost every one of those cases could have been prevented. 

This podcast is for anyone who wants to improve their health literacy and gain information to help them make the best decisions about their risk of heart attack, their cholesterol, blood pressure, risk of diabetes, weight loss and general health. Join me on my personal mission journey to prevent Heart Attack on a global scale. If you like this podcast, I would be honoured by a 5-star review and appreciate if you let your friends and family know about this podcast; you may even save the life of someone you love!

Are You at Risk of a Sudden Heart Attack? How Healthy is Your Heart? Really?

Heart disease is the #1 killer in the Western World. In Australia, someone dies every 28 minutes from heart disease. That’s 51 people a day. In the US, someone has a heart attack every 40 SECONDS! Fortunately, many heart attacks are preventable. However, regular exercise and eating healthy are no guarantee you won’t succumb to this silent killer.

  • 94% of Australians have at least One Risk Factor for heart disease.
  •  59% of Australians have been Touched by heart disease.
  •  Yet only 3% of Australians have had a Full Heart-Health Assessment in the past 12 months.
