    Lowering Estrogen Prevents Memory Decline In Menopausal Females

    As many of my readers know, the WHI studies were highly detrimental to the profits of the estrogen industry. Every since the results of those studies came out, the estrogen industry has been trying to undermine the findings and re-introduce estrogen HRT for women with the claims that estrogen is...

    Cardiolipin Supplementation May Reverse Signs Of Aging

    One of the key features of aging is the decline in mitochondrial function (metabolism), and that fact is widely recognized even by mainstream medicine. However, doctors still claim that the relationship between metabolic decline and aging has not be elucidated and a causative link cannot be...

    Half Of Millennials And 75% Of Gen Zers May Be Mentally Ill

    The bad news for the chronologically young just keep accumulating. About a week ago I posted another study demonstrating that, if current trends continue, Millenials will die earlier than their Gen X counterparts due to poor(er) health. That study was aggregate and included all sorts of reasons...

    Record High Number Of People Are Not Having Sex, The Young Lead The Pack

    Yet another study that corroborates the striking decline of health in Western nations, except that this time it is not physiological disease. The "Young" Have Now Become The Old This new study found that a record high number of people is not having ANY sex, with the most pronounced "sex drought"...

    Remarkable Decline In Fertility - Half The World Below Replacement Levels

    I posted a few related threads on the topic of the declining reproductive health before. Sperm counts in males have declined by more than 60% since the 1970s. Sperm Count (a Surrogate For Male Health) In The West Has Declined By 60% Since The 1970s However, that finding does not seem to be...

    IQ Scores Have Been Dropping For Decades And The Reason Is NOT Genetic

    I mentioned in a few other threads about the decline in intelligence and the reversal of the so-called "Flynn Effect" over the last 3-4 decades. Flynn effect - Wikipedia A few users commented that the drop in IQ (and SAT) scores is due to simply more people taking the tests and thus lowering...

    Even A Slight Increase In Estrogen Strongly Decreases DHEA Levels

    I posted a few studies in the past revealing that in old age (and menopause) the levels of pregnenolone, progesterone and DHEA declines, while that of cortisol and aldosterone stays the same or even increases. Pregnenolone, Progesterone And DHEA Drop, Cortisol Rises In Aging The decline in...

    Sperm Count (Biomarker Of Male Health) In The West Has Declined By 60% Since The 1970s

    This topic has been discussed on the forum a few times before but the humbers quotes by recent studies usually hovered around 20% - 30%, which did not cause much alarm among endocrinologists. Now, this larger study shows that the decline in male fertility is much worse than previously thought...

    Intelligence Expected To Decline In Higher IQ And Rise In Lower IQ People

    While the study is observational, it is important because it shows that IQ score is very malleable and depends on the environment more than anything else. I think Ray said in one of his interviews that he thinks the population of Western countries is getting progressively dumber, and he...

    Even Minor Stress Substantially Decreases DHEA-S Levels

    Most endocrinologists are at a loss when asked what leads to lower DHEA-S levels. The generic response is "aging" but the DHEA-S have been steadily declining over the last 30 years (just as testosterone) in young people, so that explanation does not add up. While Peat has not directly written...

    Health Of Young People Has Declined Strongly In The Last 30 Years

    When you first look at the study, it seems a fairly benign and almost irrelevant finding. In fact, the study authors try to present it just as such, as they are probably unaware of the implications of their findings. What is more, the study authors call for revision of the health standards in...

    Breakthrough In Understanding (and Potentially Reversing) Aging

    This studies only looked at skin cells but the mechanism is apparently present in all tissue cells and as such the scientists think that therapies can be developed not only for reversing skin aging but also systemic aging. Unsurprisingly, skin cell aging was found to be due to decline of...
