    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...

    Today I am going to discuss my struggle with dandruff, everything I have tried, the mechanism perhaps behind one main cause and a way to address it. Of all the ailments I have dealt with (and believe me I have dealt with so many) Dandruff was one of the most stubborn issues I seemed to suffer...

    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...

    Tetracyclines, ROS & Light-driven Antibiotics Approach (antimicrobial Photodynamic Inactivation)

    Has anyone read/looked over this article? I've never heard of/knew this was possible until recently. Tetracyclines function as dual-action light-activated antibiotics (in vitro/incubated cells) I'll bold/quote some of the parts I thought were interesting, assuming this hasn't been...

    Co-existence Of Coronavirus With Bacterial Pathogen A Major Cause Of Fatalities

    It may be that the deaths from covid are related to bacteria. "Evidence has been accumulating on the role of Chlamydia pneumoniae-a species of Gram-negative obligate intracellular pathogen (the link between virus and bacteria) which causes a spectrum of lower and upper respiratory tract...

    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)...

    Serotonin (due To Bacteria) Is The Master Regulator Of Metabolism, Insulin Sensitivity, And Weig

    Over the last year I posted a number of studies demonstrating strong link between serotonin and chronic conditions such as obesity, insulin resistance, and even diabetes. Augmented capacity for peripheral serotonin release in human obesity...

    All Gut Bacteria Dangerous, Its Endotoxin Drives Liver Cancer; Antibiotics Cure

    As Peat has written many times, there is truly no such thing as “beneficial” gut bacteria as long as they are capable of producing endotoxin (LPS). And since most bacterial species known to colonize the gut can produce LPS when exposed to undigested food or mechanical stimulation (stretching or...

    The Key To Controlling Bacterial Growth Is Nitrogen

    Low carb is not the way to go for a healthy gut flora... Eating just enough and not overdoing proteins seem to be key for a healthy gut microbiome. Besides proteins what can drive Nitrogen up during digestion? Eating less protein may help curb gut bacteria’s growth "Humans and other animals...

    Antibiotic Resistance May Be Driven By Pesticides Like RoundUp (glyphosate)

    I am sure most people on the forum have seen multiple news items on the topic of rapidly increasing antibiotic resistance of many bacterial strains causing the most common infections in both the general population and hospital patients. The official version is that this increasing resistance is...

    Periodontal Disease Can Cause Alzheimer's Disease (AD)

    Peat has written many times on the link between periodontal disease, and endotoxin. He mentioned how a few dentists he knows stopped doing dental cleaning after they found that that giving their patients laxatives or antibiotics cured their gum disease. In addition, a few studies came out...

    Sterilizing The Gut Restores Insulin Sensitivity By Reducing Fatty Acid Oxidation

    I am posting this study just as an example of how important the role of endotoxin is in insulin resistance and diabetes. Similarly to the human study with aspirin, sterilizing the gut with antibiotics did not reduce the weight in the obese subjects (in this case mice). So, obesity may be a less...
