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.

Carbohydrates Can Kill

The author states: "It has been shown that carbohydrate in large quantity has a hydrating effect on the skin which encourages infective processes, and certainly the majority of cases of acne take a high carbohydrate diet"

He then recommends, "Carbohydrate should be restricted, especially white bread, cakes, pastries, chocolate, and cane sugar, all of which tend to promote fermentative processes in the intestine"
