    Your Textbooks Are Wrong, This Is What Cells Actually Look Like

    Interesting video about new cell imaging techniques. I wonder if they will finally validate some of Gilbert Ling's work.

    Striking Accumulation Of PUFA In Aged Cells

    Peat has written many times about the changes that occur in "aged" cells. Those changes are virtually indistinguishable from the ones that occur in "sick" cells and are characterized by reduced mitochondrial number/size and a shift in lipid composition away from saturated and towards unsaturated...

    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...

    PUFA Increases Alcohol Damage By Increasing Cell Fluidity; SFA Are Protective

    Peat has written a number of times on the synergies of PUFA with ethanol and endotoxin on causing liver and systemic damage. In one of his articles he opined that in the absense of PUFA/iron ethanol would likely not cause much harm. He also wrote about the protective effects of saturated fats...

    Cells Have Memory, And Memories Of Past Conditions Affect Future Response

    This study looks at a concept that Peat has written a lot about and which has been largely ignored by mainstream medicine (in favor of genetic explanations) - epigenetic cell memory. The study only looked at muscle cells but there is no reason to believe the same mechanism is not present in...

    All Steroids (not Just Unbound/free Ones) Are Bioavailable

    One of the recurring points of contention in Peat's writings that I have not seen addressed yet is his comment on total vs. free hormones and the relevance this has for common blood tests for thyroid and sex hormones. The mainstream medical claim is that only free hormones are capable of...

    Metabolism May Be Older Than Life Itself And Can Start Spontaneously

    If this is indeed true I am not sure how can modern medicine continue to deny the primary role of metabolism in the human organism. The picture so far suggests that metabolism appeared first, then RNA and finally DNA. The same group published two studies. The first one showed that glycolysis can...

    The Anti-cortisol Mechanism Of Pregnenolone

    One of the recurring arguments on this forum is whether pregnenolone and progesterone (being technically precursor to the glucocorticoids) raise or lower cortisol levels, and whether they have effects opposing or promoting those of the glucocorticoids. The argument advanced by a few people here...

    Dietary Fat And Its Oxidation Drives Cancer Metastasis

    Yet another study that discover cancer cells love for fat. As I posted in a few other threads, cancer cells actually need fat (preferably PUFA) for metastasis and survival, and use sugar for ATP generation. Achilles Heel Of Cancer Found - Its Addiction To Fat Cancer Cells Addicted To Fat And Use...

    Collective Cellular Communication Key For Health And Disease (cancer)

    Ray wrote in some of his articles that cells behave like a superstructure, constantly in long-range communication with one another. Whether a disease forms or health is maintained depends not on local conditions by on the collective quorum of all cells and what they decide to do as a group...

    HDAC Inhibitors Affect Every Function Of The Cell And May Extend Lifespan

    The use of HDAC inhibitors such as valproic acid or various butyrate salts for cancer treatment has been studied experimentally for decades. Until now, it was assumed that the process of histone acetylation and deacetylation affected mostly the processes associated with cell division and...

    The Herpes Viruses Are Activates By Stress, And Can Cause Cancer

    Over the last few months, I received at least 20 emails from people questioning Peat's statements that viruses are activated by physical or emotional stress, estrogen, NO, prolactin, etc. Keep in mind that estrogen, NO, and prolactin are all biomarkers of stress themselves. This study explains...

    Aging In Cells Is Driven By Mitochondria

    The process of aging is complex and according to mainstream science comes down to genes. Over the last few decades some scientists have discovered that genes probably do not play a major role but rather that aging comes down to processes in the mitochondria. However, until now, there had been no...

    The Cell Is Not A Bag Of Water, It Is An Elastic Gel

    I have been noticing for some time that modern science has been warming up to many of the ideas Peat has been writing about. This latest study coming from Harvard (the bastion of dogma) shows that the model of the cell as bag of randomly moving water is slowly coming to an end. The old model is...
