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.

The study revealed that patients with highest vitamin D levels had a 40% lower risk of colorectal cancer than did those who had the lowest.

Exposure to sunlight allows us to produce vitamin D and the richest dietary sources include: butterfat, lard, eggs, liver, organ meats, marine oils and seafood.
