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 investigated the relationship of food intake with colon cancer. The six year study included 47,949 U.S. male health professionals (aged 40 to 75) who were free of cancer at the start of the study.

With regard to saturated fat, the study found those who consumed the most had a 12% decreased risk of colon cancer compared to those who consumed the least.
