    Oral pregnenolone as hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in humans

    As many of my readers know, the first step in steroid synthesis is the so-called "side-chain cleavage", which converts cholesterol into pregnenolone (P5). That step is known as the rate-limiting step in the steroid cascade, and its function depends on the redox status and ATP levels. In other...

    Lower Growth Hormone (hGH) And IGF-1 Levels In Men Extends Lifespan

    The study is important because it was done on humans and confirms a lot of what Ray has written about the dangers of pituitary hormones, including hGH. Combined with the well-known link between hGH and cancer I am not sure how sane the doctor advising all the athletes juicing with hGH are. The...

    Growth hormone implicated in cancer and diabetes

    The article is very confusing, so I am not sure if they advocate using HGH for treating cancer/diabetes or are they saying they discovered how HGH may be causing cancer/diabetes. There is one line though that sums up the message likely to be of interest to us...

    Acidifying Foods Block The Release Of Growth Hormone

    Ray has written about the misconception of "growth hormone" (GH) being something to be desired, and how high levels of it are associated with many diseases, particularly cancer and diabetes.
