    "Anti-aging" Hormone (hGH) May Actually Shorten Life

    The duo of hGH/IGF-1 does not need an introduction. Hardly a day passes without some ad on TV promoting the latest and greatest product that "naturally boosts" either hGH or IGF-1 levels. The two hormones have an almost perfect correlation - each one inducing the endogenous synthesis of the...

    PUFA Increases Risk Of All Cancers, Especially Prostate

    The bad news for PUFA just keep on coming. There seems to be no health pathology that PUFA does not promote, even indirectly. The study below demonstrates that BOTH omega-3 and omega-6 increase risk of ANY cancer and death from it, but specifically the risk of aggressive prostate cancer. It is...

    Heart Attacks Are On The Rise Among Young Women

    The bad news for the "young" just keep on coming. As I posted last week, the chronologically young do appear to have become the biological old. The "Young" Have Now Become The Old This week, the front page news is that heart attacks in young women have seen the largest increase than any other...

    Increased Cholesterol Esterification As A Cause Of Alzheimer Disease (AD)

    Peat's most recent newsletter was on the topic of cholesterol and its increased esterification as a possible cause of the many pathologies that occur with aging. Nov 2018: Dr. Peat Talks About Cholesterol Esters Causing Aging One of the organs most vulnerable to cholesterol esterification is...

    One In Four People Will Have Stroke At Least Once, Including People In Their 20s

    Yet another great indication of the "improving" health of the Western world (and China). Those geographical areas saw the biggest risk increases over the last quarter century, and in some of those areas the lifetime risk of stroke reached 40%+. China took the "crown" in the male competition...

    SSRI Drugs Such As Prozac (fluoxetine) Cause Antibiotic Resistance

    If the accumulated evidence on the ineffectiveness and dangers (Massive Study Says SSRI Drugs Are BOTH Ineffective And Dangerous) of SSRI drugs was not already bad enough, now we can add causing antibiotic resistance to the list. The study below found that exposure of E. coli to the SSRI drug...

    High Serotonin Is A Likely Cause Of Most Types Of Fractures

    Peat wrote in a few articles that serotonin is extremely detrimental for bone growth and that anti-serotonin drugs are anabolic for the bone. Serotonin is the most potent inducer of cortisol synthesis, which is probably the main mechanism behind its bone destructive effects. However, serotonin...

    Marijuana May Cause Psychosis/schizophrenia By Increasing Serotonin Signalling

    I know the topic of weed is controversial but by now the link between heavy and chronic marijuana use and the risk of psychotic conditions like schizophrenia has been well established. Peat mentioned a few times briefly that cannabis has anti-androgenic effects and should not be used chronically...

    Major Depression Rates Rapidly Rising, Especially In Young People

    I posted a few studies in the past showing that rates for cancer, diabetes, and stroke have increased several-fold over the last decade, and mostly in young people. The official version peddled by the FDA of course is that we just keep getting healthier by the minute and life expectancy is...

    Stress (adrenaline, Noradrenaline) As The Main Driver Of Cancer Metastases

    I just posted a study in which it was shown that surgical removal of a tumor results in massive and uncontrolled formation of metastases across the entire organism. Universal Test For Cancer Progression/stage Here is the quote again, just to make the point of this thread clear. "...The...

    Paternal Use Of SSRI Increase Risk For ADHD In His Children

    By now even the general public has gotten a wind of just how bad the SSRI drugs are. But most of the studies demonstrating negative effects from SSRI use are focused on the health of the patient taking them or the health of the baby whose mother is taking SSRI while pregnant or during...

    Birth Control (BC) Pills Increase Suicide Risk By More Than 300%

    Most of the current BC pills on the market are either estrogen-only or contain a combination of estrogen and a synthetic progestin. The role of estrogen in strokes in young BC users is now well known, but public health officials continue to deny it. The fact that estrogen raises suicide risk so...

    High Levels Of (endurance) Physical Activity Increase Risk Of CVD

    The study compared levels of physical activity (most often "endurance" exercise) and found that those in the highest titre have much higher risk of CVD compared to moderate or light activity. In light of the recent threads that starting and then stopping "endurance" exercise can make a person...

    SSRI Use In Children Dramatically Increases Risk Of Diabetes In Adulthood

    The bad news for SSRI just keep on piling. Given serotonin's role as a master metabolic inhibitor this findings is not really surprising. There are a number of clinical trials underway with serotonin synthesis (TPH) inhibitors as treatment of obesity, insulin resistance and diabetes II. As of...

    Higher Fat Diets And Fat Emulsification Increase Endotoxin (in Obese Males)

    High dietary fat is one of the primary factors for increased endotoxin load, especially if the fat is PUFA. This is probably one of the main reasons Peat prefers lower fat diets. However, most of the studies on the fat-endotoxin link so far have been on animal models. This new human study...

    Palmitic Acid (palmitate) Strongly Increases Oxidative Metabolism

    This is yet another thread as a follow up on the recent posts about plamitic acid inhibiting fatty acid oxidation and having therapeutic roles in cancer, diabetes and all other disease characterized by elevated/abnormal fatty acid metabolism. Palmitic Acid (palmitate) Is A Fatty Acid Oxidation...

    Death Rate From Alzheimer Disease (AD) Has Risen By 55% In Just 5 Years

    I am surprised this dire statistic even made it to front page news, but hopefully it would give the public some food for thought. The even scarier news buried inside this tragic article is that most of the deaths are due to the so-called "early onset" AD, which strikes people in their 50s, 60s...

    Palmitic Acid Is Androgen Agonist, Increases Androgen Synthesis, Decreases Cortisol

    Palmitic acid has a bad reputation in mainstream medicine and the blogosphere. It is claimed to directly cause insulin resistance, obesity and even hypogonadism. Well, these studies found the exact opposite. The first one found that methyl-palmitate (MP) is an actual androgen receptor agonist...

    SSRI Drugs Increase Risk Of Bleeding In The Brain

    Incidence of GI and brain bleeding events has been increasing over the last 30 years.Aspirin was blamed the increase of both the brain and GI bleeding events. Recent studies seem to have vindicated aspirin a bit, but the question remains about what is causing the increased incidence of brain and...

    Despite 10% Drop In Caloric Intake, Childhood Obesity On The Rise In The USA

    This new study is generating a lot of "controversy" as they like to call it in mainstream media. By controversy, what is really meant is the falsification of the calories in/out postulate that is so popular among medical professionals and dieticians. Here's why kids are still getting more obese...
