    Lifestyle, not age, rules cognitive function...

    ...whether you are 18 or 80. Yes, I know it is hard to believe this statement but that is the conclusion of the study after examining the link between lifestyle (and environment) and cognitive function in a group of people with ages spanning the 18-89 years interval. The conclusion of the study...

    Low-dose aspirin may prevent most dementias (even Alzheimer's)

    Over the last couple of months, a few studies came out arguing (again) that aspirin is not worth the risk and that people should stop taking it. It seems that Big Pharma has a schedule of pumping propaganda out every year or so against the main "threats" to its dominance - aspirin, vitamin D...

    Vitamin D Deficiency Can Lead to Dementia And Stroke

    Despite this being an observational study, the analysis for extraneous factors has been strong enough that the authors believe the link between vitamin D deficiency and dementia/stroke is causal. As the study itself says, almost 20% of dementia/stroke cases could be prevented by simply...

    Ocular progesterone administration may treat eye, brain, and mental illness

    A few months ago, I posted a study demonstrating improvement in localized, ocular steroidogenesis by administration of a small amount of niacinamide (as an aqueous solution) directly into the eye. I think user @ecstatichamster may have already tried this himself and I think he even started a...

    Allopregnanolone found safe, may slow brain atrophy from Alzheimer's

    A great new study, which is one of the very few to examine the safety and effectiveness of allopregnanolone in humans. The trial was conducted in patients with Alzheimer Disease (AD) and aimed to establish the safety of various doses of once-weekly allopregnanolone administration, as well as any...

    Blocking endotoxin may reverse cognitive decline of aging

    Another study implicating endotoxin (LPS) and its associated receptor (TLR4) in a phenotype of aging considered "normal" by mainstream medicine, though it almost universally progresses into dementia territory with advancing age, to the point where 90%+ of people over 85 have at least moderate...

    Robin Williams autopsy revealed he had about 40% loss of dopamine neurons and almost no neurons were free of Lewy bodies throughout his entire brain.

    The terrorist inside my husband's brain by Susan Schneider Williams I am writing to share a story with you, specifically for you. My hope is that it will help you understand your patients along with their spouses and caregivers a little more. And as for the research you do, perhaps this will...

    Anti-Peat Omega-3 + 6 supplementation in pregnant women increases brain volumes on MRI scans of their newborn infants

    Randomized controlled trial of brain specific fatty acid supplementation in pregnant women increases brain volumes on MRI scans of their newborn infants Sci-Hub full study Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (ArA) are essential brain specific fatty acids (BSFA) for mammalian central...

    Exercise brain-boost may be due simply to increasing brain selenium levels

    Yet another study demonstrating that many of the "mysterious" benefits of exercise most likely have nothing to do with the (insignificant) amount of extra calories burned, but are due to peripheral effects related to metabolism and redox balance. Namely, the study below investigates the...

    Lazy **** To A+ Student — Possible? If So, How?

    Hello everyone, I am interested in your perspective on this one. Do you think it is possible to become an A+ student if you are starting off as a lazy, not so genetically-gifted person to begin with? If so, what would you focus on physiologically and psychologically to achieve this? Drop...

    Is Progesterone the reason that women gravitate more towards mentally-stimulating/abstract subjects moreso than men ?

    I notice when my progesterone is high I become a lot better with art - my art that I do when I am high Progesterone/somewhat high DHT vs just high DHT is light-years different - there is a lot more attention to detail and it feels like my mind is generally more abstract - I notice that Dr. Peat...

    Does a larger skull on a person signal higher intelligence ? Examining intelligence of animals with high brain-to-body (EQ) Ratios

    I think it would be useful to have a discussion on brain size and intelligence - the reason I put skull size in the thread title is that I think it is safe for one to assume that the brain cannot grow "bigger" without more space available in the skull - hence the skull having to grow bigger as...

    Two more cases of prion disease as a result of COVID-19 vaccines

    The more time passes, the more it becomes obvious that Montagnier may be right - i.e. these vaccines (especially the mRNA types) and their global roll out may be the biggest medical error humanity has ever made...

    Mainstream book/article links depression and authoritarianism with energy metabolism

    "We often think of depression is a mood disorder, but depression is also metabolic disorder – meaning that, fundamentally, there is something wrong with your metabolism and your energy regulation. When you experience depression, you don’t experience that metabolic difficulty directly; you...

    Cellular "memory" of stress can be passed on for 50+ generations

    There was a study that came out 2-3 years ago showing that when animals were exposed to a toxin, often the negative effects did not even manifest in the directly exposed organism but manifested in their offspring and were passed on for more than 14 generations. The study below now demonstrates...

    Hyperserotonemia confirmed as a cause of autism and insomnia

    Given the flood of recent studies lately, with virtually identical findings as the study below, I don't think much needs to be said. So much for "serotonin is the happiness hormone"...Yet despite the solid evidence implicating serotonin as a (if not THE) major cause of autism, even this study...

    DHT, not T, likely the "active" androgen in heart and brain

    Interesting study, done on baboons (so should have good relevance for humans), demonstrating that the cardiovascular system (CVS) exclusively accumulates and recognizes (at the receptor level) DHT, instead of testosterone (T). In fact, the androgen receptor in CVS is so structurally different it...

    Is this adult ADHD?

    Hello amazing community. I need help figuring out first what do i have. I started noticing in November last year I could not remember once a day a name of a person or a plant/object that was very familiar to me. I know I had to remember, it was a frustrating feeling of not being able to even...

    Childhood stress causes mental illness in adults by blunting androgens

    Yet another great study solidifying the evidence on just how detrimental early childhood stress is. It has been known for decades that childhood stress leads to early puberty, and that the latter is associated with greatly increased risk of chronic diseases later in life, as well as early death...
