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

Ribs and Fries
6 pork ribs                                                                                                         Food Mall: Pork Ribs
All Natural Pork Loin Baby Back Ribs 1-1/34 lb each8 oz of sweet potato
1tb coconut oil
shallot salt
lemon pepper
smoked paprika
garlic powder
celery salt

Dry rub the ribs with shallot salt, lemon pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and celery salt. Get the barbecue going.

Now slice 8 oz of sweet potato ( I like the garnet ones). Melt a about a tablespoon or so of coconut oil and coat them with it. Arrange on a baking sheet and sprinkle with shallot salt, cayenne pepper (not too much), and sea salt. Get that oven pre-heated to 425F. The ribs and sweet potatoes took about 30 minutes for me - so i would start them at the same time. When they're nearly done, get about 3 oz of snowpeas, spice 'em up, and saute in a little coconut oil.
