I was asked to do some reading up and write an article on GST and its potential effects on Healthcare in Malaysia.
As we all know, GST is coming next year.

Doctor, please allow me to digress.
I hope that you can give me some pointers on how to gain weight without piling on the cholesterol.
I am 72, male, 5'7" tall and weighs 103 lbs.
I understand that I should be about 118 lbs.
The websites I visited advocates peanut butter, eggs with yolks, red meat etc.
However, these are high in cholesterol.
Thanks for your advice.
Regards,

Hi Winston, do you suffer from Dyslipidemia at the moment? Do you have a high coronary risk profile. Have you had ischemic heart disease? If you have no history of CAD, and have a low coronary risk profile, then throw caution to the wind and eat as you wish. If you feel guilty, check your lipid profile 6 monthly.
If you wish, do join us at the coming weekend seminar and we could chat. I am a believer in treating those at risk, especially in septuagenarians.
