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

Grilled Rib Eye Steak

New York Prime Meat USDA Prime 21 Days Aged Beef Rib Eye Steak Bone, 3/4-inch thick, 2-Count, 18-Ounce Packaged in Film & Freezer Paper
Food Mall: Rib Eye Steak
4 Rib eye steaks (one inch thick) about a pound each
Onion powder
Garlic powder
Kosher salt
Cracked black pepper

Stack coal in a pyramid shape in the middle of the grill. Pour lighter fluid over the coal and let stand for about four minutes, then light. You will have to wait about 20 minutes.

This is a good time to rinse the meat and pat dry with paper towels. Spice to taste.
Once the flame goes down, spread the coal and place the rack on top for 5 minutes.

Place Rib eyes spice side up on grill rack and cover. If your grill have vent holes open full.

Cook Rib eyes for 7 minutes on each side. Flip only once. Thicker steaks (over one inch) need lower heat and more time, thinner steaks (one inch or under) need high heat and less time.

Place the Rib eyes on a cutting board and cover them with foil and let them rest for 10 minutes.
