    Cuomo says NY must reopen ASAP or they will be nothing left to reopen

    A year ago, if I had seen an article like that on MSM I would have just rolled my eyes and assumed it was just schizophrenic journalists writing in a state of SSRI withdrawal. Yet, here it is and it is not an isolated news item. After an entire year of mocking, vilifying, arresting, doxxing...

    Obesity "paradox" Strikes Again - Protection Against COVID-19

    I suspect this one will not go down will with the "lean is always good" crowd, which consists predominantly of members of the medical profession. Aside from all the health risks of obesity for pretty much any chronic disease, the news over the last 6 months have been replete with warning from...

    Adrenaline Suppresses The Immune System And Promotes Viral Infections

    The timing of this study just could not have been better considering the current coronavirus epidemic. The study below demonstrates that both adrenaline and noradrenaline suppressed the immune system and both increases vulnerability to viral infection as well as increasing mortality after the...

    Vitamin D - The New Antibiotic Against Skin And Gut Infections

    A great new study demonstrating the crucial role of vitamin D in maintaining proper immune function. The study demonstrates that maintaining normal levels of vitamin D is strongly protective against gut infections by Salmonella-type bacteria. Interestingly, the authors claim that vitamin D is...

    Inhibiting Fatty Acid Synthesis (FAS) Dramatically Improves Sepsis Survival Rate

    Yet another study that points the finger straight at fat as a key factor in one of the most common causes of inpatient hospital mortality - sepsis. Sepsis is currently considered to be a condition of infectious (bacterial) etiology, driven by endotoxin. However, in light of the new findings it...

    PUFA Cause Fatal Swelling Seen In Brain Infections; SFA Are Harmless

    Conditions like meningitis and brain abscess are on the rise and there is currently no explanation why. The fatality of such conditions is usually not due to the infection itself but due to the swelling of the brain, which results in compression of the brainstem and often herniation, both of...

    Vitamin E Deficiency Increases Risk Of Tuberculosis (TB) Infection

    Most people in modern societies probably do not have much to fear when it comes to TB, as that disease is very rare in the Western world. The reason I am posting this study below is that it demonstrates once again the role of vitamin E in maintaining a healthy immune system. The benefits of...

    Fat Cells Are Mobile, Migrate As Needed To Heal Wounds Or Prevent/treat Infection

    A very interesting study showing that far from being passive and strictly detrimental to health, fat cells are highly mobile and migrate readily through contraction/motility. These cells accumulate in areas with wounds or infection and release beneficial macrophages and peptides to help...

    Cardenosine - Liquid Product For R&D

    Our new product is finally here and it is "all about the ATP". I mentioned quite a few times on the forum and over email that we plan on releasing an ATP product and people have been asking me about it for the last few months. It seems a very simple task at first but we thought that we can do a...

    Rheumatoid Arthritis May Be Caused By The Same Bacteria That Causes Crohn's

    I posted a few studies on the now VERY likely causative link between a bacteria called MAP (Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis - Wikipedia) and the pathology of Crohn's. It seems that FDA is finally taking notice and there is a clinical trial for treating Crohn's with antibiotics...

    Serotonin Is The Likely Cause Of Septic And Anaphylactic Shock

    I am hoping that as a result of this study, mainstream medicine will finally start to take the pathogenic role of peripheral serotonin more seriously. More importantly, this study points to a rather simple and safe way of treating two of deadliest acute reactions (sepsis and allergic shock)...

    Baking Soda Dramatically Increases Antibiotic Effectiveness, Could Help In Sepsis

    Recently we posted some studies showing that thiamine (by itself or vitamin C) dramatically increases survival in sepsis, and lowers its severity. IV B1+Vit. C+ Cortisone Prevents Septic Induced Death Sepsis is the number one killer of hospitalized patients, so finding a way to reduce its...

    Without Endotoxin (TLR4), An HIV Infection May Not Cause AIDS

    More than 3 years ago I posted a study showing that monkeys that are natural carriers of the simian version of HIV known as SIV, do not develop AIDS. It was only after being injected with endotoxin (even when attenuated) that these monkeys develop the wasting syndrome and oppostunistic...

    Endotoxin (from Low-grade Infection) As A Cause Of Crohn's, UC, And Other IBD

    Not sure how many people on the forum know that Crohn's disease, which is a type of an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), has recently been reclassified in some countries as infectious of origin and not as an autoimmune disease. The causative pathogen of Crohn's is thought to be a type of...

    The Brain Damage In Cases Of TBI May Be Partially Driven By Gut Bacteria

    Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most common injuries sustained by soldiers on the battleield, as well as by various athletes (NFL, NHL, major league soccer, etc). Repeated TBI events or even a single TBI of sufficient severity can trigger what is commonly known as chronic traumatic...

    Breast Implants Can Cause Lymphoma

    The study only discussed one specific type of localized lymphoma but the underlying cause (inflammation) is generic enough for me to wonder how many other cancer are caused by breast implants. At least the message is loud and clear that it was inflammation due to the body trying to contain the...

    C. Difficile Gut Infection Or Even IBD May Be Due To Low Vitamin D Or PPI Drugs

    As the study says, the direct cause is high intestinal levels of calcium but as the study also says these are usually due to poor calcium absorption. And unless a person has IBD (which is rare) the low vitamin D status or PPI drug (GERD) use stand out as the most likely causes, even more so...

    DeFibron - Liquid Methylated SFA For Lab/R&D

    Ever since I read in one of Ray's articles about the ability of saturated fat to reverse even advanced liver fibrosis (cirrhosis) I have been researching the effects of various saturated fatty acids on a number of organs and tissues. A number of studies have been posted on the forum indicating...
