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.

High cholesterol, rather than being a malignant condition that would predict a short life expectancy, is actually associated with higher longevity, and not only with longevity but also with a healthy life. Below are the stastistics for healthy life expectancy from 163 countries.

The association between higher cholesterol and healthy life expectancy, and thus a pleasant longevity, is very clear. People with high cholesterol live the longest.

In a 6-quart kettle, combine the turkey, water, bouillon, bay leaf, and sea salt. Cover and simmer until meat is very tender and begins to fall away from the bone, about 2.5 hours.

Lift out meat and set aside to cool. Add lemon juice to cooking liquid and boil, uncovered, until reduced to 3 cups.

Remove meat from the bones, discarding skin, tendons, and bones.

Tear meat into fine shreds and combine with the thyme, sage, garlic, onion, parsley, pimento (drained), and
black pepper.

Pack meat mixture into a 5x9-inch loaf pan, then pour in the cooking liquid.

Cover and chill until set, at least 6 hours.

Run a knife around the pan sides to loosen. Dip pan into hot water for 5 seconds, then invert onto a serving plate and slice.
