    Low progesterone, not low estrogen, drives night sweats, insomnia of menopause

    Every time I see a study like this I catch myself singing the glorious Queen lyrics "...another one bites the dust". In this case, what bytes the dust is the pernicious myth that estrogen deficiency drives many of the features of menopause - from the more benign symptoms such as insomnia, night...

    Aspirin as effective as pharma blood thinners

    The study only looked at patients hospitalized for bone fractures, but I don't see why the results would be any different for any other condition and in any other setting (hospitalized or not). This probably at least the 10th study I have seen over the last few years demonstrating that humble...

    Aspirin as effective as heparin for preventing blood clots

    Mainstream medicine makes no secret of its intense hate for aspirin. That humble drug has been the subject of countless articles of propaganda (many of them ghostwritten), with the goal of driving doctors towards eliminating aspirin from their practice. One of the most "sensitive" areas of...

    Food Emulsifiers And Endotoxin (LPS) Cause Brain Bleeding

    The study below is both ground-breaking and scary. Ground-breaking because it demonstrates yet another mysterious and potentially lethal disease - cavernous angioma (CA) - has a very simple explanation - endotoxin / LPS. Scary, because it refers to evidence that emulsifiers widely approved for...

    Aspirin Actually Decreases Risk Of Bleeding In The Brain

    As many readers know, one of the scary stories Big Pharma tells about aspirin is that it increases the risk of bleeding in the GI tract or brain. As such aspirin has long been bashed as a possible cause of so-called hemorrhaging strokes. I posted studies a few years ago demonstrating that...

    Flagship Blood Thinner Worse Than Aspirin For Preventing Strokes, Trial Halted

    Many of you may have seen the ads on TV for the blood thinner Xarelto. Sadly, those ads have lately started to show increasingly younger people with apparent blood clotting issues, some of them clearly in their 20s. Xarelto is the latest attempt of the pharma industry to replace the old and...

    Aspirin Actually Lowers Risk Of Bleeding In The Brain

    This should study should be a required reading for all doctors who mindlessly parrot about aspirin and bleeding risks.

    Aspirin Reduces Death / Complications From GI Bleeding

    Aspirin is commonly bashed by modern medicine as a somewhat useful drug that is severely handicapped by its side effects such as bleeding in the GI tract or brain. Well, guess what - aspirin actually protects against mortality and complications caused by GI bleeding. On the other hand, common...
