The raison d'etre of this website is to provide you with hard scientific information which may help you make informed decisions in your quest for health (so far I have blogged concise summaries of over 1,500 scientific studies and have had three books published).

My research is mainly focused on the effects of cholesterol, saturated fat and statin drugs on health. If you know anyone who is worried about their cholesterol levels and heart disease, or has been told to take statin drugs you could send them a link to this website, and to my statin or cholesterol or heart disease books.

Charles Hunt's Diet Evolution: Eat Fat and Get Fit!This study assessed the relationship of dietary fat and carbohydrate with the risk of breast cancer. 2569 women with breast cancer (average age 55 years) and 2588 control women (maverage age 56 years) in hospital with other non cancerous diseases completed a validated food-frequency questionnaire

The study found:
(a) Women with the lowest intake of dietary fat had a 19% higher incidence of breast cancer than women with the highest intake of dietary fat.
(b) Women with the highest intake of carbohydrate had a 30% higher incidence of breast cancer than women with the lowest intake of carbohydrate.
