• tca300: I understand this is off topic from what you typically teach, but I was wondering if you have run across any information or learned on your own, things that help people grieve over lost loved ones, and or fear of losing others to death? Thank you!

    Ray Peat: It activates the “helplessness” reactions in the body, stress weakening your own life, and I think it can help to get out of that if you think of your life as a continuation of theirs—the same life, though with fewer bodies.

    Acetic acid (vinegar) as a source of energy?

    This might be a stupid question but why is that we can't use vinegar / acetic acid as a dietary energy source? After all, after carbs have been broken down into pyruvate, pyruvate is converted to acetyl-CoA which is then fed into the Krebs cycle as fuel. Peat has written about how butyric...

    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...

    Mitochondrial Damage And Fatty Acid Buildup, Not Glucose, May Drive Diabetes

    Finally some common sense is coming out of mainstream medicine. The study below demonstrates that it is the buildup of fatty acid metabolites and mitochondrial damage that drives the chronic inflammation now known to be a major causative factor for diabetes II (T2DM), as well as virtually all...

    PUFA Enhance Glucocorticoid (cortisol) Signalling

    I posted some studied in the past on the estrogenic and pro-cortisol effects of PUFA, as well as the pro-androgen effects of SFA. One of those studies showed that PUFA increases cortisol synthesis even in the absence of ACTH, which suggests that they may have pituitary hormonal-like effects...

    Altering Fatty Acid Availability Does Not Impair Running To Fatigue

    Altering fatty acid availability does not impair prolonged, continuous running to fatigue: evidence for carbohydrate dependence.

    The Fatty Acid Syndrome (Randle Cycle)

    This is the original study that postulated the existence of the Randle Cycle. I strongly recommend that everyone reads it as it will likely dispell whatever doubts you may have had about Peat and his ideas. I have posted many other studies that directly support the role of the Randle Cycle in...

    Peat Got The Fats Quite Wrong

    Hi folks! I have some strong points against some of Rays ideas: So all started because my blood lipid levels have gone bad from being spot on average before I started "peating". LDL is high now. I was looking around once more and found quite shocking information. It is quite obvious and...

    Toxicity of Fatty Acids

    Comparative toxicity of fatty acids on a macrophage cell line (J774) http://www.clinsci.org/cs/111/0307/1110307.pdf Everyday I get more and more impressed by how accurate most claims by Ray Peat are..
