    Endotoxin Causes Cachexia In Cancer; How Statin Drugs Really Work

    The title of the post is a bit strange but it is pretty much what the study below found. Just like the SSRI drugs, the mechanism of action of statins is (officially) not really known. The official version for the antidepressant effects of SSRI drugs was that they increase intracellular levels of...

    Thyroid Status Inversely Related To Brown Fat Activity

    Specially Haidut's comment on brown fat made it interesting for me Fat Loss Through Topical Thyroid Or Thyroid Injections? ------------------- Presence of brown adipose tissue in an adolescent with severe primary hypothyroidism. - PubMed - NCBI Context: Brown adipose tissue (BAT) generates...

    A Creatine-driven Substrate Cycle Enhances Energy Expenditure And Thermogenesis In Beige Fat

    A creatine-driven substrate cycle enhances energy expenditure and thermogenesis in beige fat. - PubMed - NCBI Thermogenic brown and beige adipose tissues dissipate chemical energy as heat, and their thermogenic activities can combat obesity and diabetes. Herein the functional adaptations to...

    Increased Uncoupling Protein 1 In Brown Adipose Tissue Of Mice Fed A Ketone Ester Diet

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22362892 "The KE group exhibited 14% greater resting energy expenditure, but the total energy expenditure measured over a 24-h period or body weights was not different. The quantitative insulin-sensitivity check index was 73% higher in the KE group. These...

    Inhibition Of Peripheral Serotonin Production Protects From Diet-induced Obesity And Related Complic

    Don't known if someone has already mentioned this recent news from this particular study here already or not, but definitely another point for Dr. Ray Peat. "Obesity is a major risk factor for chronic disease. A new study in mice reveals that lowering levels of the signaling molecule serotonin...

    Why "cold Thermogenesis" Is Not Good For You

    It seems that for the paleo fans and people like Jack Kruse the term "cold thermogenesis" is all the rage these days. They claim it ramps up metabolism by stimulating the formation of brown adipose tissue (BAT) and increasing base temperature, thus leading to weight loss. Well, the latest study...
