    Even Decapitation Does Not Erase Memories

    I posted a study recently that suggested memories are NOT stored in the brain but are rather somehow capable of being reproduced by chemical messengers (RNA) synthesized by other cells of the organism. And if those RNA messenger molecules are transferred to another organism, so is the "memory"...

    Memories Not Stored In The Brain But In The Entire Organism, Can Be Transmitted

    Peat has spoken a few times against the common idea that the brain is a storage mechanism for memories, personalities, habits, etc. There are countless of cases where people who have lost almost their entire brain (except their brainstem) have maintained perfectly normal lives with their...

    Brains Can Be Kept Alive Without A Head/body, Possibly Indefinitely

    Despite the freakishness of the research and the ethical questions it raises, the study below is yet another example of the direction of research the medical profession is pursuing - the ability to turn humans and human consciousness into a "person in a box", which can be readily transplanted on...

    PUFA Cause Fatal Swelling Seen In Brain Infections; SFA Are Harmless

    Conditions like meningitis and brain abscess are on the rise and there is currently no explanation why. The fatality of such conditions is usually not due to the infection itself but due to the swelling of the brain, which results in compression of the brainstem and often herniation, both of...

    Niacinamide May Treat Brain Cancer (glioblastoma)

    Neuroblastoma is one of the most common brain cancers and one of the most lethal ones of all cancers. Senator John McCain is probably the most famous recent victims of this cancer, and others famous cases include Senator Ted Kennedy and one of Joe Biden's son. The latter two died from the cancer...

    GABA And Glycine Have The Same Effects In The CNS

    I am posting this simply as a pointer for those that suspect they have GABA signalling deficiency. Accodring to this study, instead of supplementing with GABA (which is hard to find in good quality) supplementing with glycine may have the same effects/benefits. Peat spoke about the similarity of...

    US Government Study Found Cellphones (EMF) Cause Brain And Heart Cancer

    This is one of the very few official studies from the US government that directly acknowledges the carcinogenicity of cellphone radiation. The study only found increased incidence in male animals, but the findings in females were inconclusive which is not the same as a finding of safety...

    Human Study Confirms Alzheimer As A Metabolic Condition (brain Diabetes)

    Over the last 3 years I posted quite a few studies on Alzheimer disease (AD) and have discussed it at length in the Danny Roddy podcasts. Among the most successful interventions are niacinamide and methylene blue (MB) both of which are in human clinical trials, thyroid and aspirin. Alzheimer...

    Iron Overload Linked To Alzheimer Disease (AD)

    I posted a few recent studies that finally start to make the connection between endotoxin, iron, and neurodegenerative conditions. Endotoxin And Iron Finally Recognized As Potential Causes Of Many Diseases Endotoxin (LPS) May Be A Causative Factor In Alzheimer Disease (AD) Big Pharma is...

    When People Engage In A Conversation Their Brains Synchronize

    I think pretty much everybody here is familiar with the expression "to vibe" (or not) "with somebody". While the expression is meant as a more general metric of the coherence of the interaction between the people involved, this new study shows that there is an actual synchronization of the brain...

    Alzheimer Disease (AD) May Be Simply Diabetes Of The Brain

    I touched upon this topic in one of the Danny Roddy shows we did last year but the evidence since then has continues to accumulate that AD is entirely a metabolic disorders, basically identical to diabetes but focusing on the brain. A recent study found that delirium, an acute form of...

    Endotoxin (LPS) Is The Cause Of Venous Malformations In The Brain (CNS)

    As a former athlete I am keenly aware of the several conditions that are known to have much higher incidence in (even very young) athletes. Aside from cardiac arrest and kidney damage, other conditions with higher incidence in athletes include aneurysms and various other vascular disorders in...

    Aspirin Can Slow Brain Aneurysm Growth

    I posted a few studies in the past showing that aspirin actually lowers the risk of deadly bleeding events in the GI and brain - the two most notorious side effects cites against the use of aspirin. The Benefits Of Aspirin Outweigh The Bleeding Risks GI Bleeding Risks Of Aspirin Are Grossly...

    Blocking PUFA Metabolism May Reverse Alzheimer Disease (AD)

    SSRI Drugs Increase Risk Of Bleeding In The Brain

    Incidence of GI and brain bleeding events has been increasing over the last 30 years.Aspirin was blamed the increase of both the brain and GI bleeding events. Recent studies seem to have vindicated aspirin a bit, but the question remains about what is causing the increased incidence of brain and...

    Endotoxin (LPS) May Be A Causative Factor In Alzheimer Disease (AD)

    I posted recently about a study that found many of the chronic degenerative diseases can be traced back to endotoxin and excess iron. Endotoxin And Iron Finally Recognized As Potential Causes Of Many Diseases This study went a step further and identified endotoxin (LPS) in the brains of AD...

    5α-Dihydroprogesterone (5α-DHP) - Potent Role In Neurodegenerative Conditions

    While researching saturated steroids and their effects on the brain, I noticed a number of highly promosing studies demonstrating benefit of such steroid for a variety of neurodegenerative conditions such as MS, ALS, Alzheimer, Parkinson, etc. Ray has written extensively on the topic of...

    5α-Dihydroprogesterone (5α-DHP) - The Primary Progestogen Neurosteroid

    It has been shown that progesterone rapidly metabolizes into more saturated metabolites such as 5α-Dihydroprogesterone (5α-DHP) and tetrahydroprogesterone (also known as allopregnanolone or Allo). The enzyme 5-AR is the one responsible for the saturation, just as it is responsible for the...

    Carbonic Anhydrase Is A Key Driver Of Aging; Inhibiting It Is Beneficial

    In support of Ray's views of CO2 as one of the main factors in mitochondrial biogenesis and health, and as such in a host of health conditions, this study found that carbonic anhydrase levels are higher and the enzyme itself is more active in both aging and degenerative conditions. Inhibiting...
