    Stress causes/exacerbates allergies, pregnenolone/progesterone therapeutic

    Yet another studies demonstrating the "controversial" link between stress and a condition doctors insist has nothing to do with stress or hormones in general. This time the culprit is CRF/CRH, which is the initial step in the "stress" cascade and is now known to be implicated in conditions such...

    Estrogen Can Both Cause And Exacerbate Lupus

    A quick post as a response to a recent argument I had over email with an endocrinologist who follows me on Twitter. His claim was that the causes of Lupus are currently unknown but are likely "multifactorial" and me ascribing such causes to "isolated peculiarities" such as endotoxin (LPS) or...

    Estrogen May Be The Cause Of "estrogen-negative" Breast Cancer

    IMO, one of the biggest medical frauds so far is the idea that androgens (especially DHT) cause and promote prostate cancer. We now have an abundance of evidence (posted on this blog) that it is instead deficiency of androgens and/or excess of estrogens that initiates and drives the progression...

    Estrogen Directly Causes Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

    The worldwide rates of PCOS are skyrocketing, and have more than doubled over the last 10 years. Currently, about 12% of women in child-bearing age living in "developed" countries have PCOS and as a result struggle with infertility, diabetes, CVD, acne, bone issues, and even cancer. The fact...

    Endotoxin (LPS) Can Trigger Social Withdrawal / Isolation

    If you talk to a doctor about endotoxin (LPS), he/she will most likely give you a blank stare as this topic is very rarely covered in medical schools and the little coverage it gets simply states that endotoxin is never an issue in most people as the liver will quickly deactivate it. Yet, what...

    Simple Metabolic Change Sufficient To Turn "normal" Cells Into "cancer"

    Yet another study exposing the fraud/myth that somehow "cancer" cells are different and evil and as such the only hope for curing cancer is killing them before they kill their "host". The central dogma of oncology is that genetic mutations happen first (and randomly so). Then, once a "cancerous"...

    Blocking Serotonin Treats Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD / NASH)

    The bad news for serotonin just keeps on coming. Just minutes ago I posted about serotonin turning people into violent criminals, and being the actual cause of depression instead of its cure (as FDA and Big Pharma would have you believe). Now, the study below adds another pathology that is...

    Estrogen, Not Androgens, May Be The Cause Of Baldness

    A quick post about a study calling into question yet another dogma in medicine - i.e. that the "evil" androgens (especially DHT) are the causes of men losing their hair and getting prostate cancer. So, the "solution" modern medicine proposes is "chemical castration" with drugs like finasteride...

    Blocking Serotonin May Treat Allergies And Inflammatory Diseases

    The bad news for serotonin (5-HT) just keeps accumulating. Aside from its well-known (outside of medical office, of course) effects on causing pretty much any mental illness defined in DSM V, as well as fibrosis in any organ/tissue unfortunate enough to be exposed to 5-HT now we can add...

    Long Work Hours Linked To Hypothyroidism

    The connection between stress and health issues is perhaps the best kept "public secret". As the saying goes, the only people who do not believe in the pathology of stress are doctors...and the dead. I would add to this category the profession of statisticians who publish studies like the one...

    Stress Causes Grey Hair

    Not exactly news for most of my readers, but it is a popular topic for many people and, as usual, the response of most doctors is that the premature greying is genetically influenced and not much can be done about it. While the study below conclusively links greying to stress, I think the...

    PUFA May Be A Major Factor In Sterility

    Just minutes ago I made a post about PUFA driving obesity, inflammation, and liver damage in diabetes II patients. The omega-6 fatty acid DLGA (a metabolite of linoleic acid) was the main pathological factor examined in that study. Now, a new study study demonstrates that DLGA may also cause...

    Diet (PUFA) Causes Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

    Rates of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as ulcerative colitis (UC) have been steadily increasing and predominantly so in the youngest cohorts studied. The official cause of UC is of course "unknown" even though the public health authorities do admit that an environmental agent is most...

    SSRI Drugs Strikingly Toxic For Fetal Brain, May Cause Autism

    As many forum users know, autism rates keep rising and even mainstream medicine has acknowledged that the condition is not genetic. There is significant evidence implicating serotonin overload during pregnancy, yet despite this solid and causative link doctors continue prescribing serotonergic...

    COVID-19/SARS May Be Due Simply To Serum PUFA And Its Peroxidation

    During the last podcast with Danny Roddy, Dr. Peat and I discussed the role of elevated free fatty acids (FFA) in the blood as facilitators of viral infection. I opined that the hydrophilic nature of PUFA circulating in the blood increases the permeability of cells and allows for easier viral...

    Serotonin May Be A Cause Of Hemorrhoids And Tinnitus

    The two conditions mentioned in the title of the post are quite pervasive among Western societies and their cause is, of course, officially labelled as unknown. While medicine claims that no treatment exists for tinnitus the only approved curative treatment for hemorrhoids is surgery and like...

    Asthma Is Driven By Endotoxin And Its Receptors (TLR4, TLR5)

    Yet another study demonstrating the crucial role of the endotoxin/LPS (and its sentinel receptors) in a chronic idiopathic condition - in this case asthma. The cause of asthma is, as usual, officially claimed to be unknown but it is known that asthma can be exacerbated by environmental pollution...

    Stress (cortisol) Can Cause ANY Autoimmune Condition By Disrupting Gut Barrier

    A great new study that is not afraid to point out the paradox between mainstream medicine's claims of beneficial effects of cortisol and the reality of "autoimmune" conditions more often than not being associated with elevated levels of CRH, ACTH and cortisol. The role of CRH as a causative...

    Pulmonary Hypertension (usually Fatal) Driven By Increased Fat Oxidation (FAO)

    Most of the forum readers are familiar with the "mysterious" condition pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). I put "mysterious" in quotes, because mainstream medicine claims that its cause is unknown, its onset is unpredictable, there is no cure, and females are affected 4-5 times more often...

    Epilepsy, As A Result Of Brain Injury (TBI), Is Caused By Endotoxin Receptor (TLR4)

    Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a pathology affecting most often military staff exposed to explosions, competitive athletes in contact sports (especially in the NFL), accident victims, etc but lately has also been shown to occur in more benign situations such as repeated low-grade impacts such...
