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.

Recipe of the day

Infallible Rare Roast Beef

1 roast beef, with or without bones, ANY SIZE
New York Prime Meat USDA Prime Beef Eye Round Roast, 3-Pound Units
Food Mall: Beef

In the morning, preheat oven to 375F. Put roast in and cook for 1 hour.

Turn off heat. Leave roast in oven. Do not open door.

Thirty minutes before serving, turn oven back on to 375F.

If you need the oven for something else, take it out to "rest" and cover with aluminum foil. Every slice is uniformly pink and gorgeous. The first few times you do this takes courage!
