    Serotonin puts the brakes on libido, by lowering dopamine

    Nothing really surprising, as far as Peatarians are concerned, in the findings of this study. I am only posting it here as it is one of the few that officially acknowledge that serotonergic drugs cause sexual dysfunction - i.e. something mainstream medicine has vehemently denied for decades. As...

    Stress ups cortisol/estrogen/prolactin, drops DHT, causes male infertility and prostate issues

    If you try to discuss infertility with a fertility/reproductive specialist or an endocrinologist, and mention that chronic stress may be a factor in infertility, you will probably get laughed out of the room. This is not just speculation. This exact same thing happened to several friends and...

    Dietary PUFA In Childhood Causes Diabetes And Irreversible (male) Infertility

    A great study, which corroborates the discussion in another recent post of mine on PUFA's role in infertility and insulin-resistance / diabetes. However, the study below found that the infertility caused by dietary PUFA exposure were NOT reversible upon discontinuation of the high-fat (both PUFA...

    Dietary PUFA Causes (reversible) Male Infertility And Androgen Deficiency

    An amazing study, which should serves as a causing to the nuts-and-seeds crowd precisely because it used exactly such a diet to produce these highly negative effects on male fertility. Come to think of it, it is common knowledge in many cultures around the world that seeds and seed extracts are...

    PUFA May Be A Major Factor In Sterility

    Just minutes ago I made a post about PUFA driving obesity, inflammation, and liver damage in diabetes II patients. The omega-6 fatty acid DLGA (a metabolite of linoleic acid) was the main pathological factor examined in that study. Now, a new study study demonstrates that DLGA may also cause...

    Low-dose (but Not High) Niacinamide Reverses Reproductive Decline In Old Females

    A great new study, which once again confirms the importance of metabolism in "aging" disorders such as infertility (both female and male) and menopause. More specifically, it was the increase in NAD/NADH ratio that was the main mechanism of action behind the beneficial effects of nicotinamide...

    Almost 40% Of Military Women (and Even More Military Males) Are Infertile

    I think this study should dispel some of the myths about what being "fit" really means, and that being truly healthy or "fit" often are quite divergent paths. Infertility is actually one of the most reliable indicators of poor systemic health and predictor of future chronic disease (in both...

    "Normal" TSH Above 2 As A Cause Of Unexplained Infertility

    As most of the people on this forum know, Peat has spoken many times about the optimal values of TSH and has said that its value should be as close to 0 as possible. I posted a study some time ago showing that "normal" TSH levels above 2 are associated with a number of health issues that baffle...

    Inhibition Of Sperm Motility And Agglutination Of Sperm Cells By Free Fatty Acids In Whole Semen

    Interesting....... "The effects of a serial dilution of linoleic acid on human spermatozoa in whole semen was tested on 21 semen samples obtained from 11 normal volunteers. The minimal concentration of linoleic acid required to stop the movement of at least 75% of the moving sperm ranged from 1...

    TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) Reference Range Wars

    I highly recommend reading the full article, there is a lot of information and advice on that site. Some excerpts: What is a reference range? Changing the reference range. The two sides of the public debate ...... Wartofsky & Dickey, "Controversy in Clinical Endocrinology: The...

    Infertility In Men Linked To High Estrogen

    Not really surprising but some "studied" have tried to paint a link between increased androgens and infertility, so I thought this would be good post here as a counter-perspective. Increased oestradiol level in seminal plasma in infertile men. - PubMed - NCBI "...Seminal hormonal patterns in...

    Estrogen (and Bpa) Cause Infertility For Several Generations

    I guess everybody is getting a free dose of estrogen and BPA through the water we drink. http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2015/0 ... tists-say/ "...In a study published in the journal Scientific Reports, U.S. Geological Survey researchers found that fish exposed to 17a- ethinylestradiol, also...
