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.

This post features a chart showing butter consumption since 1926

The chart below plots butter consumption trends versus the incidence of cancer and heart disease. Since 1926, consumption of butter has dropped precipitously, at the same time cancer and heart disease has soared. Many factors may be involved as to what causes cancer and heart disease but for sure it’s not the consumption of butter because these trends are going in the opposite direction.
