    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...

    The People With The World's Healthiest Hearts Eat A 72% Carbohydrate Diet

    So much for carbs making you fat, diabetic, sick and old. This is a nice corroboration of the other thread I posted on Okinawan diet. The author of this study actually mentions the Okinawan people as second-most-healthy in terms of cardiovascular system. The Tsimane diet has the same amount of...

    US Government Study Found Cellphones (EMF) Cause Brain And Heart Cancer

    This is one of the very few official studies from the US government that directly acknowledges the carcinogenicity of cellphone radiation. The study only found increased incidence in male animals, but the findings in females were inconclusive which is not the same as a finding of safety...

    The Big Study On Curing Heart Condition Through Genetic Editing May Be Wrong

    Yet another one of these blockbuster studies on gene editing as a way to "erase" diseases may turn out to be a premature fanfare. Hey @Drareg, I think you will like this. Inter-homologue repair in fertilized human eggs? | bioRxiv Was the big paper about the successful editing of human embryo...

    The Trophic Effects Of Androsterone

    As I mentioned in a few past threads, androsterone was studied intensively in the first half of the 20th century and one of the reasons was its functional similarity to thyroid.

    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...

    The Obesity "paradox" - Confirmed Once Again

    This study looked at people who had undergone cardiac surgery, so it probably does not apply directly to "healthy" people. However, the findings are pretty telling - if you are unhealthy and about to have a surgical procedure being overweight or mildly obese can save your life...

    Resveratrol Apparently Is Not The Answer To The French "paradox"

    Yet another study, which shows that whatever the longevity benefits of wine and berries are, they are not due to resveratrol. Just thinking how many hundreds of millions went into "researching" and promoting this substance is just mind boggling. http://www.futurity.org/resveratrol-wine-heart/...

    Significant drop in mortality when doctors are away from work

    Ray has been saying that a significant number (perhaps majority) of deaths are iatrogenic - i.e. caused by the medical procedures and/or staff. These studies seem to confirm his view: http://arstechnica.com/science/2014/12/ ... o-survive/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18849101

    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
