    Estrogen Can Both Cause And Exacerbate Lupus

    A quick post as a response to a recent argument I had over email with an endocrinologist who follows me on Twitter. His claim was that the causes of Lupus are currently unknown but are likely "multifactorial" and me ascribing such causes to "isolated peculiarities" such as endotoxin (LPS) or...

    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...

    Another study about endotoxin, this time linking higher sensitivity to endotoxin to lower survival chance for people with lymphoma. While the study below looked at only one cancer, there are multiple studies with other cancer that have found similar link. Endotoxin and cancer go hand in hand...

    SSRI Drugs (Prozac) Worsen Prenatal Stress And May Contribute To Autism

    I am posting this study because it may explain why the incidence of autism is much higher in male than in female offspring. As I posted in a few other threads before, serotonin is one of the likely direct causes of the autism pathology and it is of course elevated during chronic stress...

    The Brain Damage In Cases Of TBI May Be Partially Driven By Gut Bacteria

    Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most common injuries sustained by soldiers on the battleield, as well as by various athletes (NFL, NHL, major league soccer, etc).

    SSRI / Serotonin Worsens Tinnitus

    Most of the people on this forum know about the connection between gut irritation and tinnitus. Ray said a few times that endotoxin can directly cause tinnitus but I don't think he has talked about the role of serotonin as a causative agent, even tough endotoxin will increase serotonin synthesis...
