    The Cure For Aging Might Be The Cure For Alzheimer’s

    Almost 25 years ago, Dr. Peat himself wrote a 2-article series in which he outlined arguments in favor of the hypothesis that aging and Alzheimer Disease (AD) are just examples of a more and less systemic sign respectively of declining energy production, and that curing one would lead to a cure...

    This Doctor Says Vitamin D Supplements Are Useless

    His name is Dr. Robert Cywes and he's talking about D not as a vitamin but a hormone. His battle cry is this: "Low D is not a disease, it's an observation. Modern healthcare treats observations, not disease processes." @haidut, what is your take on this new voice?

    "Anti-aging" Hormone (hGH) May Actually Shorten Life

    The duo of hGH/IGF-1 does not need an introduction. Hardly a day passes without some ad on TV promoting the latest and greatest product that "naturally boosts" either hGH or IGF-1 levels. The two hormones have an almost perfect correlation - each one inducing the endogenous synthesis of the...

    Vitamin E Can Treat/cure Severe Fatty Liver Disease (NASH) In Humans

    As many of my readers know, currently there is an epidemic of the condition known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). By some estimates, more than 30% (100mil) of people living in the US have NAFLD and in about 25% of those the condition will progress to the more severe form known as...

    How Chronic Stress (cortisol) Causes Disease

    Back in 2018 I did a post on a neat study that demonstrated how the presence of cellular (mitochondrial) fragments in the blood stream acts identically to the pituitary hormone ACTH and as such activates the HPA axis. The more cellular fragments are in the bloodstream the more intense the stress...

    In Most Cases, Genes Have Less Than 5% Contribution To Disease Risk

    Yet another study (published by geneticists who have a vested interest to come up with results that say otherwise) according to which for the vast majority of diseases genes explain at most 5% of the cause. So, worded differently, more than 95% of the risk of developing a particular disease is...

    Millennials Will Likely Die Earlier Than Gen X Due To Poor(er) Health

    This study is perhaps the pearl in the crown of at least 20 studies that have come out over the 2-3 years. It finally states what has been abundantly clear from those prior studies in individual diseases. Namely, there are no young / healthy people any more. Both the Generation X (Gen X) and...

    Chronic Stress (adversity) Lowers Dopamine And Causes Mental Illness

    The evidence for the role of chronic stress in virtually every health condition doctors have a name for just keeps on accumulating. Unfortunately, even in this latest study the scientists keep insisting that there is some mysterious and unquantifiable difference between chronic stress...

    Estrogen And Cortisol, Not Androgens, Suppress Immunity

    There is a very famous theory in reproductive biology still considered the dominant one in its field. Namely, males have to accept a trade-off between androgen levels and immunity. It is known as the immunocompetence handicap hypothesis (ICHH). Higher androgen levels, the theory goes, allow the...

    PUFA Are Immunosuppressive, Fasting And Protein Restriction (possibly) Even More So

    Several great studies, which quickly illustrate the connection between PUFA, immune system, estrogen, cortisol, cancer and the protective role vitamin A/E play as well as their likely mechanism(s) of action. As I mentioned on one of the first podcasts with Danny Roddy, the role of PUFA as...

    We Have No Reason To Believe 5G Is Safe

    It is always pleasing to see that a bastion of corrupt, institutionalized science such as the Scientific American is publishing editorials exposing 5G wireless technology for what it is - a known human carcinogen that has also been already causally linked to virtually every chronic health...

    SFA / MUFA Are Preferentially Oxidized, While PUFA Are Stored/accumulated

    Just a quick post in response to some of the hate mail I keep getting on a daily basis in regards to the body's discriminatory treatment of various fat types. According to various proponents of keto diets, fasting, etc the organism has no preference for one type of fat or another in terms of...

    While Estradiol Falls, Estrone Rises With Age And Is Much More Relevant For Estrogen-driven Diseases

    I posted a few studies in the past demonstrating that estrone (E1) and especially its long-lasting derivative estrone sulfate (E1S) are reliable biomarkers of both breast and prostate cancer progression/prognosis. However, for some reason the medical industry is obsessed with estradiol and since...

    Parents’ Emotional Trauma May Change Their Children’s Biology

    Not a new idea, but the study is a nice summary of recent work in the area and demonstrates that the old gene-centric idea of inheritance is slowly being replaced by a much richer theory of how organisms interact with their environment and how they pass this information down to generations. It...

    The Human Organism Is An "electrome" And Diseases Can Be Cured By Controlling Electron Flow

    A great article describing the forgotten idea that the human organism is not simply a "wetware" of cells generated according to a master blueprint (DNA). Apparently, as early as the 1920s there were devices that could diagnose even very early stage cancer by simply measuring voltage difference...

    (Brain) Cancer Is A Metabolic Disease, Can Be Treated By Glutamine Restriction

    It seems that mainstream medicine is finally wisening up to the massacre they have been orchestrating for the last 100 years. Without much fanfare or apologies, medicine is now quietly changing its story on cancer, hoping the public won't notice as long as a cure is finally found. The study...

    GWAS Predicting Height Were Wrong; Same May Be True For Disease-prediction

    You have to appreciate the synchronicity (Synchronicity - Wikipedia) in nature. Just days after I posted the study on the role of diet in height, another study calls into question the validity of genetic factors in height...

    Mitochondria (energy) As The Main Driver Of Health, Intelligence, And Aging

    We are finally starting to see Peat enter the mainstream and article like the one below are calling for a complete review of what we know about health and aging and how intelligence is tied to them. As the authors says, or actually borrows from Peat, there is solid evidence that mitochondrial...

    Epidemic Of NAFLD And NASH In Young People

    Yet another sad reminder of just how much the health of the average person has declined over the last 20 years. They truly are becoming the "new old". The "Young" Have Now Become The Old If these trends are not reversed or at least slowed down, we may start seeing people in their 20s filing for...
