    Vitamin E Restores Cardiac Health After Heart Attack

    A great study that gives vitamin E a much deserved exposure in mainstream media. A few years ago, vitamin E was lambasted by the press for failing to prevent prostate cancer and heart attacks. Yet, upon a more careful look, it quickly becomes evident that those trials were handicapped from the...

    PUFA (metabolites) Drive Heart Failure And Possibly Diabetes

    Over the years I have posted a number of studies on the roles of PUFA metabolites such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes in many chronic conditions including cancer, Alzheimer, Parkinson, ALS, MS, CVD, etc. For those that are new to this issue, COX enzymes are responsible for prostaglandin...

    Pyrucet - Liquid (ethyl) Pyruvate/Aceatoacetate Mix

    As many forum users know, I have been interested in the Randle Cycle (glucose/fat competition for oxidation) for quite some time. The topic of limiting fatty acid oxidation (FAO) and promoting glucose oxidation is pretty central to the metabolic theory of health. Peat has written many times on...

    PUFA As The Main Cause Of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) And Organ Failure

    Some more evidence on the role of PUFA as a big factor in CVD. While the evidence is not widely discussed on mainstream media, and a few saboteur attempt against coconut oil have recently been published, nonetheless a few "runaways" do make it to front page news and we have posted them on the...

    Morphostasis Theory Of Immunity Confirmed - Body Treats Heart Attack Like Viral Infection

    Peat has touched upon his views of the immune system in several articles, mostly related to autoimmune disease. In his view, the role of the immune system is not so much to "attack" foreign pathogens that threaten the organism, but is more akin to sanitation workers who clean up trash and other...

    Niacinamide Lowers BP, May Reverse CVD And Reduce Heart Attack Risk By 25%

    This is a human study, so the findings are that much more relevant even though they probably do not come as a surprise to users of this forum. The duration of the study was just 6 weeks and the dose was 500mg nicotinamide riboside (NR) twice a day (for a total of 1,000mg). There were no side...

    Cardiology Patients Have Lower Mortality When Top Doctors Are Absent

    A study made the news a few years ago showing that patients in the ER, as well as kidney disease wards had much lower mortality when senior doctors were out of town due to conferences. This new study below now adds cardiology patients to that list of people faring much better then their "expert"...

    Vitamin D Rapidly Reduces Arterial Stiffness In Humans

    As many of you know arterial stiffness is one of the main signs of CVD and contributes significantly to both elevations of blood pressure (BP) and actual ischemic events in brain/heart. According to official guidelines, arterial stiffness cannot be reversed once it sets in, and the only recourse...

    Androgen Deficiency As The Main Cause Of Chronic Disease In Males

    This is one of the most comprehensive reviews that I have ever come across on the topic of androgens and their role in male health. It is authored by one of the most renowned experts in urology - the former director of the Department of Urology at Boston University (BU) School of Medicine. Given...

    Standing At Work May Be A Lot More Dangerous Than Sitting

    I am sure many people here have seen the flood of ads for "standing desks" - a raised desk without a chair which a person uses to work in an upright position instead of sitting. Thee have been many health claims made for these desks, none of which have been verified so far in controlled studies...

    Eating PUFA Instead Of Butter Increases Overall Death Rates And CVD

    This is actually a human study and the sad part is that the study was actually done 50 years ago. Why was this data kept unpublished for so long is hard to explain but at least the truth is coming out. Note how the popular press title is worded carefully to avoid casting PUFA in completely...

    BCAA protect against heart attack damage

    The proposed mechanism is inhibition of Ca+ channels. Other substances that do the same are magnesium, cyproheptadine, taurine, etc. Not surprisingly, all of them have shown benefit in reducing CVD incidence and damage. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10442223
