    L. plantarum protects testicles & lowers inflammation/endotoxin

    It is well known that phtalates used in plastics are endocrine disruptors and damage testicular tissue. This study is showing that Lactobacillus plantarum (LP) alleviates testicular damage, increases testosterone back to normal levels, lowers inflammatory mediators like TNF-a, IL-1b and IL-6 and...

    Anti-histamines May Prevent, Treat Melanoma

    About 2 years ago I did a post discussing the hypothesis that melanoma is an endocrine tumor, similar to breast cancer - i.e. driven by estrogen. In fact, if one has the time to dig into the published literature on all known malignancies, it quickly becomes apparent that virtually all cancers...

    Virtually All Patients With Depression Are Hypothyroid

    It does not get much better than what this study found. More than 2/3 of mildly depressed patients and basically all moderately and severely depressed ones has low T3 levels. TSH was elevated in almost 55% of the patients. As the study says, this widespread prevalence of sub-clinical...

    Melanoma Is An Endocrine Tumor Like Breast Cancer - Driven By Estrogen

    Peat has said this a number of times in his articles, but to this day the mainstream view is that melanoma and all other skin cancers are driven by overexposure to sunlight.

    PUFA Is Estrogenic And Androgen/Progesterone Antagonist

    As Peat mentioned many times and I discussed on Danny Roddy's shows, PUFA is a powerful endocrine disruptor. As such, it has direct effects on steroids and expression of steroids receptors in cells that go beyond its metabolism into the inflammatory mediators (even though those amplify the...

    Insulin Resistance As An Endocrine Disorder

    This argument has flared up so many times on this forum and I doubt we have reached any agreement. I am on the side that insulin resistance and obesity are endocrine disorders. There is a group here that maintains that it is the obesity that really triggers it all. This study discusses some of...

    Bpa-free Plastic Just As Dangerous As One With Bpa

    The dangers of the so-called plasticisers are well-known and have been known for decades. Despite the extensive research, FDA refuses to ban these chemicals that are banned in many other countries. I recently posted a study on the mechanism through which the plasticisers cause damage...
