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.

To quote the author: "The results show that a high fluoride intake has a clear influence on the IQ of preschool children, manifesting itself primarily as damage to performance intelligence. The study also indicates that the proportion of preschool children living in the high fluoride area that have retarded head development (based on measurement of the circumference) is significantly greater than in the low fluoride control group, and that children with this developmental deficiency demonstrate a lower IQ than children with normal head development".

Recipe of the day

Coconut Chicken Nuggets

Ingredients: - Glatt Kosher Ground Chicken (White Meat)
Food Mall: Ground Chicken
◦1 lb. ground chicken
◦1 egg yolk
◦1 t onion powder
◦1/4 t garlic powder
◦1/4 c + 1/2 c almond flour
◦1/2 c dessicated coconut
◦1/2 c coconut oil

In a bowl combine 1/4 c almond flour, 1/2 c dessicated coconut and some S&P. Mix it around with your hands. In a separate bowl, combine the ground chicken, 1/2 c almond flour, onion & garlic powders, egg yolk and some S&P. Mix it with your hands until everything has been incorporated.

In a saute pan, melt the coconut oil on medium heat.

Take about 2 tablespoons worth of the chicken mixture and in the palm of your left hand, roll it into a ball. Drop it into the almond/coconut mixture and roll the chicken ball around with the fingers on your left hand. Make sure it’s completely coated. Repeat with the rest of the chicken. Place in the saute pan and cook on each side until nice and brown. I did 3 batches for 1 pound of chicken.
