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

Baked Fish with Eggplant and Tomatoes

Ingredient list:
2-4 catfish (or any white fish) fillets
1 large eggplant
1 sweet yellow onion
2 lbs. Fresh Catfish
Food Mall: Catfish
1 14.5-ounce can of diced tomatoes
Extra virgin olive oil
Crushed red pepper

Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of olive oil to sauté pan over medium heat. Chop onion into bite-sized pieces and add to hot oil. Peel the eggplant, chop into bite-sized pieces, and add to pan. Add tomatoes and all the juices from the can. Add a generous dusting of salt, oregano, crushed red pepper, and black pepper and stir ingredients. Cover and let cook for 5-10 minutes. Transfer vegetables from pan to an airtight container and store in refrigerator overnight. When you are ready to continue, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Transfer half the vegetables to sauté pan over medium heat. Lay fish across bottom layer and then add the rest of the vegetables on top of the fish as a top layer. Cover and bake in oven 15-20 minutes until you can pull flakes of fish from the fillets easily with a fork. When done, transfer everything to plates and enjoy!
