Cholesterol: I Told You So!

Big Brother has finally come around to what I’ve been telling my patients for almost 30 years – stop worrying about cholesterol in your diet!

Why You Should Avoid Statins

At my anti-aging clinic, I continue to wage war against what I call the “medical-industrial complex.” And I do it for one reason only – I care more about my patients than I do about profits.
