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 examined the association between nutritional intake and hypothalamic amenorrhea. The study included 18 amenorrheic women who were compared to 36 normal women.

The study found:
(a) The amenorrheic women consumed 78% more fibre than the normal women.
(b) The amenorrheic women consumed 24% less fat than the normal women.

The data from the study reveals that amenorrheic women consume more fibre and less fat than normal women.
