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

Chicken Pancakes

Omaha Steaks Boneless Chicken Breasts
Food Mall: Chicken Breast
• 1 chicken breast precooked (season as desired while boiling)
• 3 eggs

Using a food processor, blend ingredients together until completely smooth.

Mixture will look like thick pancake batter.

Use 1/4 c of the mixture and cook in hot greased skillet like a pancake. Batter may need to be spread out a bit so that it is not too thick.

These cook much faster than nut flour pancakes. Watch them closely. Makes 4-5 pancakes. - 468x60
