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.

In this study subjects were divided into groups eating either a breakfast of 2 eggs or a breakfast equal in kcal and weight but containing bagels.

The study found that eating eggs for breakfast resulted in greater weight loss and better energy levels than eating bagels even though the number of calories was the same.
