    Vitamin D Reduces TMAO From High-Choline Diet, Promotes Non-Atherogenic Microbiome

    The role of trimethylamine n-oxide (TMAO) in human disease has been quite controversial. The carnitine/choline in red meat and eggs had been purported to generate trimethylamine (TMA) via bacterial metabolism, which then goes on to become TMAO via the action of hepatic FMO3. The often-promoted...

    Gut bacteria causes rheumatoid arthritis (RA)...and likely all other "autoimmune" conditions

    After decades of fraudulent theories on the origins and development of RA, the study below seems to finally admit the obvious - RA is not an "autoimmune" disorder but simply the body producing antibodies to specific pathogens found mostly in the gut, which, however, have managed to translocate...

    Niacin / niacinamide ratio may be a very good test for bacterial infection

    A very interesting study, which may provide a cheap, fast and easy method for testing whether a person has a bacterial or not.

    Aajonus Vonderplanitz jumpstart / cliffsnotes / overview (raw, unpasteurized living)

    Preface Like Ray Peat, Aajonus Vonderplanitz (born John Swigart) painted with a broad brush and stood against the 'mainstream medical complex.' He spoke boldy against vaccinations, FDA standards, and a greater agenda of un-health that's being advertised by the dark elite of this world. In...

    Parasites, Fungi, Bacteria: Nuisance or helpers?

    A growing idea in the nu-nutrition sphere is that parasites and bacteria play an essential role in the selective decomposition of diseased tissue; preferentially leaving healthy tissue alone akin to how predators seek out the diseased members of a herd. Such proponents claim that the harm...

    PUFA metabolites may drive bacterial infections and their resistance to antibiotics

    The study below demonstrates yet again that there is hardly an aspect of human health that PUFA does not influence in a detrimental manner, even seemingly non-metabolic aspects such as bacterial infections. As it turns out, most bacteria express the enzyme family known as lipoxygenases (LOX) and...

    "When candida ends up in your bloodstream it's over!"

    I wanted to ask about this for a long time but I always forget. So Georgi said in a podcast with Danny that if candida ends up in your bloodstream "it's over". I wondered what specifically that means. It seems so discouraging and set in stone. Does that mean that you are screwed for the rest...

    Help Can't Eat Anything Debilitating Excess Saliva

    Long story short whenever I eat pretty much anything my body starts to produce excess saliva often to the point where it causes me to vomit. This has developed over the past 3 months and slowly got worse but yesterday it really was the worst ever. I ate a pizza and about 40 minutes later I threw...

    Bacteria And Viruses Don't Cause Disease

    According to Thomas Cowen there is no scientific evidence that bacteria and viruses causes disease. In his book "The Contagion Myth", he claims that "(...) no disease attributed to bacteria or viruses has met all of Koch’s postulates or all of Rivers’ criteria. This is not because the postulates...

    Emulsifiers Found In Most Commercial Foods Cause Brain Tumors, Hemorrhage, And Stroke

    A really interesting study that demonstrates how emulsifiers considered "benign" by the FDA/USDA and present in virtually all commercial food can actually cause quite a bit of damage to health. The study demonstrates that even a low-dose of a common commercial emulsifier Polysorbate 80 (P80)...
