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  purpose of the study was to identify the association of various factors with stomach cancer. The study participants were aged between 30-75 and included 170 stomach cancer cases and 2,184 controls.

The study found:
(a) Beef consumption was associated with a small reduction in stomach cancer risk.
(b) Those who consumed liver at least once per week had a 30% reduced risk of stomach cancer compared to those who never had liver or only once every two weeks.

The data from the study shows that liver consumption is associated with a reduction in stomach cancer.
