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.

Kozlovskya noted that compared to the reference diets, consumption of the high sugar diets increased urinary Chromium losses from 10% to 300%. 
The data demonstrates that consumption of diets high in simple sugars causes Chromium losses; this coupled with marginal intake of dietary Chromium may lead to marginal Chromium deficiency, which is associated with impaired glucose and lipid metabolism.

Foods rich in Chromium include Beef, Liver, Eggs, Chicken, Oysters, & Butter.
