    Estrogen And Histamine, Not HPV, Drive Cervical Cancer

    A few months ago, I did a post about a study which made the bold claim that estrogen instead of HPV is the actual cause of the (often deadly) cervical cancer. According to that study, HPV infection is at best permissive and at worst simply an (largely innocent) bystander. A statement like this...

    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 Increases Risks Of Skin Cancers

    As the study says - not total fat but its composition in the diet is what drives (skin) cancer risk. And as expected, PUFA "shines" once again. What is particular good about this study is that it exposes both omega-6 and omega-3 as cancer-promoting. Omega-3 has been the defense of last resort...

    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...

    Adrenaline Suppresses The Immune System And Promotes Viral Infections

    The timing of this study just could not have been better considering the current coronavirus epidemic. The study below demonstrates that both adrenaline and noradrenaline suppressed the immune system and both increases vulnerability to viral infection as well as increasing mortality after the...

    Cortisol Drives Triple-negative Breast Cancer, Androgens (DHT) Are Therapeutic

    Another confirmation of a hypothesis made more than 100 years ago - i.e. all cancers are hormonally sensitive and to speak of a steroid-negative cancer is nonsense. If all cancers are driven by at least one steroid then it would make sense to discover what that steroid is and develop therapeutic...

    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...

    Serotonin Causes The Startle Response, And Likely PTSD As Well

    As my readers know, I have posted quite a few threads in the past on the topic of PTSD. It is a condition that affects up to 30% of current/former military members, and is considered a condition of unknown cause and without treatment. Current treatment options consist of mostly symptom...

    Rats Can Drive Cars (to Lower Stress), Befriend Robot Rats And Help Them When In Trouble

    Official/pathological science keeps sternly warning us not to anthropomorphize and to think of animals as nothing but dumb, soul-less automatons. Yet, there has been no evidence discovered in over 100 years of pathological science reign to support such a view. To the contrary, the studies below...

    Acidosis (Warburg Effect) Drives Cancer Through Increased Fat Oxidation (Randle Cycle)

    The evidence continues to pile on that naming the (in)famous observation made by Otto Warburg in regards to cancer an "effect" is one of the most profound falsehoods the medical profession has ever concocted. Almost a century after the Warburg "Effect" term was coined, the evidence rapidly...

    Elevated Maternal Estrogen (estradiol) Again Linked To Autism

    Just weeks after the first study on the link between elevated estrogens (all types) and autism, a new study again demonstrated a link between elevated maternal estrogen (estradiol in this case) and risk of offspring autism...

    Estrogen Excess During Pregnancy May Cause Autism

    Finally! Some common sense is emerging from the medical profession. For one, it points the finger straight at estrogen as a possible cause of autism. And not just estradiol, which the medical profession considers the only estrogen of note, but all 3 of them (estrone, estradiol, estriol). So, all...

    SIRT1 Is A Key Promoter Of Leukemia And Other Blood Cancers

    SIRT1 (one of the sirtuin genes) is currently one of the stars in the nutritional/medical blogosphere. As far as back as 2004, SIRT1 was promoted as a key regulator of longevity and activating this gene was marketed as one of the most reliable ways of increasing lifespan. Resveratrol was lauded...

    PUFA (metabolites) Drive Heart Failure And Possibly Diabetes

    Over the years I have posted a number of studies on the roles of PUFA metabolites such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes in many chronic conditions including cancer, Alzheimer, Parkinson, ALS, MS, CVD, etc. For those that are new to this issue, COX enzymes are responsible for prostaglandin...

    Endotoxin (LPS) May Be A Major Cause Of Preterm Births

    As many readers have probably heard, rates of preterm births due to a variety of maternal conditions including (pre)eclampsia has been steadily increasing since the 1980s. The official version is that the cause is unknown despite older studies proving definitively that progesterone deficiency...

    Elevated Serotonin Increases Criminal Activity

    The study looked at correlations between ambient temperature and criminal activity and found that higher temperatures correlate with reduced SERT density and as such elevated serotonin. The SERT protein is the one that deactivates serotonin and it is a sodium dependent protein. Serotonin...

    High Cortisol And Low Testosterone Likely Drive PTSD

    As the article below states, 20%+ of service members come back with PTSD. It is a devastating mental condition that makes patients not only unable to participate meaningfully in society but often drives them to violent and homicidal/suicidal behavior. Given the roles of cortisol and serotonin in...

    Increased Fat Oxidation Is The Cause Of Kidney Damage

    At least in diabetes, according to the study below. Peat mentioned in several of his articles and interviews that the kidney damage so commonly seen in both type I and II diabetes patients is due to increased PUFA oxidation and decreased glucose oxidation. He also said that the same mechanism...

    Yet Another Study Shows That Chemotherapy Drives Cancer Metastases

    More news coming in, corroborating earlier posts on the topic. It seems the MD profession is the only one that still has not wisen up to the fact that trying to "kill" the cancer only makes it spread/grow and turn into a killer itself. Chemotherapy Causes Cancer Metastases, Tumor Evolution...

    PUFA As The Main Cause Of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) And Organ Failure

    Some more evidence on the role of PUFA as a big factor in CVD. While the evidence is not widely discussed on mainstream media, and a few saboteur attempt against coconut oil have recently been published, nonetheless a few "runaways" do make it to front page news and we have posted them on the...
