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.

Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is a bacteria that has been developed into a pesticide. When the gene for the bacterial protein of Bt is transferred to plants, the now genetically modified plants themselves produce the Bt toxin, which protects them against chewing pests.

This study demonstrated that exposure to Bacillus thuringiensis sprays may lead to allergies of the skin.
