    Study Links Stroke To Vitamin B1 Deficiency

    The study was observational but I am inclined to see a causative role of the deficiency for stroke. My inclination stems from the thousands of intervention studies with vitamin B1 to treat a host of neurological issues including accelerating recovery from stroke. In addition, chronic alcoholics...

    High Norepinephrine Can Be Used To Diagnose Fibromyalgia

    Fibromyalgia is one of the "mysterious" spectrum disorders, which baffles doctors. There is no structural abnormality in muscle tissue and as a result many patients are treated as if the condition is a psychiatric one. It is known to be greatly exacerbated by stress, which is a convenient excuse...

    Mediterranean Diet Study Has Been Retracted, Health Link No Longer Causative

    By now, there is probably no adult in the Western world who has not heard of the Mediterranean diet and all of its supposed benefits for health. While the buzz about the diet has been going on for decades, a massive study was published in 2013, which pretty much legitimized the health claims...

    Serotonin Causes Obesity And Diabetes In Humans

    This study is presented as groundbreaking and unexpected but in fact big pharma has been quietly working on anti-serotonin therapy for obesity/diabetes for more than a decade. I think the importance of this study is the admission that serotonin causes obesity/diabetes in humans, as one of the...

    Endotoxin (LPS) Theory Of Atherosclerosis (CVD)

    I posted a study more than year ago, which examined the role of NO in aging and disease. The Nitric Oxide (NO) Theory Of Aging One of the main endogenous stimulators of NO synthesis is endotoxin (LPS). It turns out that the connection between LPS and CVD has been studied for a long time in...

    PPI Drugs May Cause Gastric (stomach) Cancer

    Forum users who follow my posts have probably noticed the ongoing exchanges user @aguilaroja and I have had over the years in regards to the so-called PPI drugs used to treat GERD. My first negative impression about these drugs came almost 15 years ago when I was first getting started in the...

    Cortisol And Serotonin Are Causative Agents In (male) Liver Cancer

    The role of serotonin in all cancers of the billiary and GI tracts was well-known in the first half of the 20th century. The term carcinoid syndrome was used to describe the spectrum of such cancers and it was widely acknowledged that most of the patients died as a result of the fibrosis that...

    Estrogen, Not Androgens, As A Cause Of PCOS (and Related Cancers)

    Peat has written about the role of estrogen in PCOS for more than 4 decades. The official version you will hear from most doctors is that PCOS is driven by hyperandrogenism and that anti-androgenic drugs are commonly used to "manage" it. However, despite this management rates of PCOS continue to...

    Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Linked To High Serotonin

    In one of his very early interviews Peat was asked about SIDS and its likely cause. He said he was not sure but given the occurrence of SIDS mostly during the night and winter months he thought a pituitary hormone or a neurotransmitter might be involved. I posted some preliminary studies on the...

    Exposure To EMF May Cause ALS

    I am posting this not so much because the link is strong but because the official message is that EMF is "completely benign" and cannot cause any disease because there is no known mechanism of action for it. That is of course a lie, and I posted a Q&A on Reddit that occurred a few years ago in...
