I read Dr Briffa's blog until he stopped writing on it last year after the birth of his daughter. He is a very good doctor, into low carb and everything, like Dr Malcolm Kendrick. Some years ago he was on a televised debate about cholesterol and statins - he was in the anti statin side
Here's his blog so others can get an idea about him: http://www.drbriffa.com
