    Adhd Drugs That Don't Harm Your Health

    Are there any ADHD medications that aren't so bad for your health? I was diagnosed with adhd and my doctor put me on ritalin. But in the forum I read that Ritalin would be estrogenic and would lower body temperature. I already take caffeine, taurine and thiamine to help me. Any help is appreciated.

    Steroid Receptor Antagonists in Bottled Water An increasing number of in vitro studies reports the presence of EDCs in bottled water [12], [13], [14], [15], [17]. With previous studies focusing on estrogenicity, the present work provides evidence for an additional contamination...

    PUFA are remarkably estrogenic, toxic to the ovaries

    One of the few studies that looks into the issue of whether the xenoestrogenic burden we are exposed to 24x7 in Western countries is due entirely to synthetic, industrial chemicals or if there is more to the story. Well, there is definitely more to the story, and the additional evidence we have...

    SSRI drugs decrease androgens / progestogens, increase estrogens

    As hard as it is to believe, this is the actual title of the study - i.e. SSRI drugs are bonafide endocrine disruptors. As it turns out, all of the six most-prescribed SSRI drugs the study looked at behaved not only as inhibitors of gonadal androgen synthesis (e.g. testosterone, DHT), but also...

    Some aromatase inhibitors (AI) are estrogenic

    I have long suspected this considering the peculiar side effects of some AI drugs, but was not able to find concrete evidence...until now. The study below demonstrates that one of the most widely used AI - anastrozole - is a potent estrogen receptor activator/agonist, and at low concentrations...

    Liquid Alternatives

    I live in a hot and humid climate and I feel a strong urge to drink fluids throughout the day. Since I started peating (I have been consuming a lot more salt than before), I started to feel less desire to drink liquids throughout the day, I stopped drinking pure water, nowadays I only drink...

    Simple, Non-invasive Test For Adrogenic / Estrogenic Tone

    One of the core issues in modern endocrinology is the relatively weak correlation between serum levels of steroids and the overall activity in the organism associated with a particular steroid. For example, post-menopausal women have very low levels of estradiol yet very high whole-body...

    Endocrine Disruptors (BPA) Can Cause Autism Several Generations Later

    In one of his recent newsletters, as well several KMUD interviews, Peat mentioned that the effects of GMO foods and other environmental toxins would not be immediately visible. In fact, they would take several generations to manifest and by the say third, forth, fifth generations we would start...

    Synthetic Progestins Are Estrogenic And Promote Cancer Through FAS

    As many forum users know, the debate over the role of progesterone in breast cancer has been raging since the 1950s when the first synthetic progestins hit the market. Peat is strong proponent of the beneficial and anti-cancer effects of bioidentical progesterone, while at the same time voicing...

    Chemicals Used In Packaging, Carpets And Utensils (Telfon) Are Endocrine Disruptors

    Whenever a news articles contains the phrase "endocrine disruptor" most people automatically think of chemicals like BPA, BPS and other related plasticisers. BPA and its related chemicals are known thyroid antagonists, estrogen agonists and androgen antagonists. The material commonly known as...

    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...

    Unsaturation = Estrogenic, Saturation = Androgenic

    Most people on the forum have read Peat's articles on PUFA and its great synergism with the estrogenic hormones. Peat has written that saturated fats have effects opposite to those of PUFA and there are studies showing feeding saturated fat increases androgen synthesis. I have been researching...

    Pregnenolone Is An Estrogen Antagonist

    This has been stated by Peat a few times but usually the assumption has been that pregnenolone converts into progesterone and that is how it exerts its anti-estrogenic effects. This older study claims that pregnenolone (also called delta-5-pregnenolone) is directly antagonistic to estrogen...

    Test For Estrogenic Activity And Prostate Cancer

    In addition to getting a test for prolactin as in indicator of estrogenic burden, this study makes a case for using the blood levels of estrone (E1) sulfate as a reliable indicator of global estrogenic activity. So, the next time you get some bloodwork you should ask for testing E1 in addition...

    Ssri Drugs Are Estrogenic And Cause Breast Cancer

    Another article confirming Ray's views of the tight connection between serotonin and estrogen. I was surprised to see this in mainstream media but I guess the truth is slowly coming out. On the flip side, the article states that FDA recently approved "low dose" SSRI drugs for treating hot...

    Estrogenic Substances Are All Around Us

    Ray has written about the ubiquity of the chemicals with estrogenic action in nature. If that's not enough, we are now surrounded by a plethora of synthetic "xenoestrogens" that appear to be having the same (and sometimes even more potent) estrogenic effect than estrogen itself. It appears that...
