    Glycine (and leucine) can treat fatty liver (NAFLD and NASH)

    A great new study that demonstrates the strong protective effects of glycine, alone or in combination with leucine, on preventing/treating various forms of fatty liver disease, as well as the obesity that often accompanies these conditions. One of the strong points of the study is that it also...

    Fasting ups estrogen & cortisol, decimates vitamin D, may cause diabetes

    A really interesting study, which will likely generate more than a few hateful emails for my Inbox :): Anyways, as the study demonstrates, fasting achieves these negative effects due to the elevated fatty acids working through PPAR activator PGC-1α, to activate both the estrogen receptor (ER)...

    Dietary PUFA In Childhood Causes Diabetes And Irreversible (male) Infertility

    A great study, which corroborates the discussion in another recent post of mine on PUFA's role in infertility and insulin-resistance / diabetes. However, the study below found that the infertility caused by dietary PUFA exposure were NOT reversible upon discontinuation of the high-fat (both PUFA...

    Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) + DHT Combo May Reverse Kidney Disease (CKD)

    A truly great study for a number of reasons. First, it cites extensive evidence that male patients with diabetes (both types) have low androgens and high estrogen (estradiol). The association between this endocrine abnormality and the severity of diabetes is apparently quite strong, yet it is...

    The One Gut Bacterium You Have To Boost (and Here’s How)

    There is so much controversy over gut bacteria and if we should lower it or boost it or try to modulate it. Well, we have a gut microbiota whether we like it not, so we have to make the best of it. Lowering gut bacteria with antibiotics can be very helpful, but is rarely a long term solution...

    Statins May Cause Insulin Resistance By Depleting Vitamin K

    A great study, which both highlights the dangers of statins while also providing a plausible mechanism for those side effects that both FDA and Big Pharma vehemently continue to dispute. This plausible mechanism involves the inhibition of vitamin K2 (MK-4) synthesis, which requires the same...

    High-carb (65%-85%) Diets Therapeutic In Diabetes

    Another myth of mainstream medicine continues to (slowly) crumble. The myth of diabetes as the "sugar disease" may be still alive but the evidence against it is quickly mounting. Perhaps the only thing still preventing it from collapsing overnight is the large numbers of Paleo-diet supporters...

    PUFA Makes Girls Fat / Lazy / Diabetic And Exercise Futile

    Just a few minutes ago I made a post about PUFA (from nuts) increasing risk of diabetes. I just came across another very similar study below. It found that PUFA consumption, in both mice and humans, makes them fat and highly sedentary while also increasing their diabetes risk. MUFA and SFA had...

    Nut (PUFA) Consumption May Cause Diabetes Even Without Obesity

    Such are the findings of this intriguing study, and I suspect the authors probably "massaged" the data a bit in order to avoid getting their study rejected by the peer-review committee. Cases of diabetes II without the presence of obesity are extremely rare, so the finding that nut consumption...

    PUFA May Drive Obesity, Insulin Resistance, Liver Issues In Diabetes II Patients

    Yet another study where the message is clear - there is nothing "essential" about the PUFA we are bombarded with from all directions be that diet, medical interventions, household products, etc. What makes this study particularly relevant is that PUFA ingestion actually is promoted as one of the...

    Pre-natal Viagra Use Causes Offspring Hypertension And Maternal Diabesity

    The study looks weird at first glance - why would pregnant women take Viagra? After all, it is a drug initially developed for treating hypertension and erectile dysfunction (ED) in men. Well, the same misguided idea of using nitric oxide (NO) promoting drugs like Viagra to induce vasodilation...

    The Keto Diet Works Only For A Week, Then It Causes Obesity And Diabetes

    A great study that goes a long way towards dispelling the currently dominant dietary fad - the keto diet, as well as various other functionally equivalent diets such as Paleo, Warrior, intermittent fasting, etc. As the study unequivocally demonstrates, the reductions in blood sugar and weight...

    America’s Favorite Oil Causes Diabetes, Obesity, Autism, And Liver / Brain Disease

    A series of shockingly direct studies that do not shy away from pointing the finger at the real villain in modern public health history - PUFA, and more specifically the "essential" linoleic acid (LA). As the studies demonstrate, soy oil has strikingly detrimental effects on metabolic health and...

    Progesterone May Treat Diabetes, Obesity, And Metabolic Syndrome

    Interesting new study, which adds more to the already existing mountain of evidence for the benefit of progesterone in a variety of conditions of metabolic origin. While the study does not mention any specific doses, it is known that the receptor (PGRMC2) whose activation the study found to be...

    Vitamin D Strikingly Therapeutic For Type II Diabetes

    Despite the ongoing assault against "ineffective" dietary supplements, the evidence in favor of them keeps piling on. One of the favorite targets of mainstream media is vitamin D, and multiple claims of "ineffectiveness" based on "meta" studies have come out in the last 5 years. Usually, this is...
