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.

■Pat dry and season the steak.
■Preheat the oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit.
■Place a wire cooling rack on a cookie sheet then put the steak on the cooling rack. This allows hot air to circulate around the entire steak.
■Bake the steak until the internal temperature is 100-110 degrees.
■Drizzle a little oil in a pan over high heat. Just as the pan begins to smoke, drop the steak in the pan.
■Cook the steak for 2 minutes on each side.
