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.

The Green Lacewing (Chrysoperla carnea) (an important predatory insect) was fed insects which had been feeding on genetically modified maize and conventional maize. 
 
There was a significant increase in mortality and a delay in development was observed when the Green Lacewing was fed insect larvae reared on genetically modified maize.
 
This findings of the study implicate the hazardous ecological risks of genetically modified maize, and if it can cause death in insects-what impact could it have on human health.
