Chris Masterjohn is creator and maintainer of Cholesterol-And-Health.Com, a web site dedicated to extolling the benefits of traditional, nutrient-dense, cholesterol-rich foods and to elucidating the many fascinating roles that cholesterol plays within the body. Cholesterol-And-Health.Com is home to his blog, The Daily Lipid. Chris is a frequent contributor to Wise Traditions, the quarterly journal of the Weston A. Price Foundation, is a perennial speaker at the annual Wise Traditions conference, and writes a second blog on the foundation's web site, Mother Nature Obeyed. Chris is a doctoral candidate in Nutritional Sciences at the University of Connecticut. He has authored three peer-reviewed publications including a hypothesis on the molecular mechanism of vitamin D toxicity published in Medical Hypotheses, a letter to the editor published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology challenging the conclusions of a widely publicized study claiming to show adverse effects of eating coconut oil, and a letter to the editor published in The American Heart Journal arguing that drugs used to raise HDL-cholesterol should not be considered safe until their potential adverse effects on vitamin E metabolism have been studied. He has also recently authored a human study on the effects of vitamin E on sugar metabolism that has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry, and a review on nonalcoholic fatty liver disease accepted for publication in Nutrition Reviews. Chris plans on graduating with his doctorate in the summer.
