    Birds Fall In Love Just Like Humans Do

    Another confirmation that animals are just as conscious and capable of human emotion as humans are. The study was done on birds that were monogamous, and if anything, shows that being able to choose a mate that suits you is key not only to happiness but to offspring health as well...

    More Evidence That Anti-depressants May Worsen Mental Health

    I think at this point there is enough evidence to warrant putting quotes around the term "anti-depressants" since in many cases not only they do not improve mental health but may make the situation dramatically worse. This latest study adds even more weight to the evidence against the commonly...

    Ornithine And Aromatase Inhibition

    Hi, I was reading about the effectiveness of various 'aromatase inhibitors' - particularly those 'natural' compounds found in supplements derived from extracts of plants (ie. grape fruit extract, curcumin, blueberries, celery, fenugreek, ginger, goji, safflower, etc). In my reading, I have...

    Aging Associated With A Loss Of Ability To Metabolize Glucose

    Ray has written about this phenomenon so many times, and it also underscores the futility of the attempt to cure diabetes by making people oxidize fat more. According to this study, with aging the human mitochondria progressively lose the ability to oxidize glucose. They can oxidize fat just...

    Cancer Cells Addicted To Fat And Use Fat Oxidation For Survival

    Ray has written several times that while cancer cells use glucose for their normal activities they use fat to evade apoptosis and increase metastasis. Thus, according to Ray, using substances that block fat oxidation can be therapeutic. Niacinamide and aspirin are some of the most beneficial...

    Carbs (not Meat) Were Crucial Factor For Developing Big Brains

    The Paleo community is ablaze as a result of this news article. The study claims that even though meat may have kickstarted the process of developing big brains, it was carbs that were crucial for the sustained development of a big brain and the intelligence associated with it. I think points 1)...

    Aging Tied To Loss Of Oxidative Capacity; Stress Has Same Effect

    In yet another confirmation of Ray's metabolic theory of everything (TOE), this study found that aging is associate with a shift from oxidative to reductive state in the cell. More importantly, the study found that stress has the same effects as the aging process - i.e. stress is a form of...

    2014 Study: Normal Sugar Consumption Not Associated With Health Problems

    EDIT: I posted this to vindicate carbohydrates in the causation of diabetes, but, as LucH pointed out, it's made by by a scientist bought and paid for by the soft drink industry. Sugars and Health Controversies: What Does the Science Say? The consumption of sugar and its relation to various...

    DHEA Is Preferentially Converted Into DHT In Humans

    I posted several studies showing both that DHEA itself is androgenic and very similar to DHT in terms of affecting "gene" expressions, as well as preferentially converted into DHT when used as supplement. Unfortunately, most of the studies were in animals and some of them were in vitro. So, what...

    Caffeine - A "new" Drug For Depression / Social Defeat

    Caffeine has been popping up in the news lately. Several studies caught my eye, so I am posting them here. Two independent groups of researchers found out that caffeine protects against stress-induced mood and memory dysfunction. One of the studies focused on depression and found that increase...

    Green Tea, Fluoride Reduce Thyroid Function By As Much As 50%

    Ray has written that green tea is also quite estrogenic, so I am not surprised to see this effect. Fluoride is apparently also a well-known thyroid inhibitor as stated by the scientists. If this is well known then why do we have fluoride in the tap water?!? Also, caffeine, as expected, did not...

    Four Obesity Paradoxes Explained

    I don't know if the author of that blog follows this forum or not, but we have been discussing these "paradoxes" for some time now. It seems that even mainstream medicine is wising up to the fact that blindly recommending weight loss can be downright dangerous and that obesity may be a defensive...
