    High-salt Diet Strongly Inhibits Cancer Growth

    I am posting this study mostly as a response to the hostile exchanges I have had with doctors over what they claimed was "irresponsible" promotion of high salt intake. While these discussions mostly revolved around CVD, I also made claims that increased sodium intake would be protective for...

    Aspirin May Treat Brain Aneurysms

    Another huge win for aspirin, not only because of the condition's lethality, but because there is currently no treatment for it. While the study did not last long enough to make such claims, given the potent inhibitory effect on aneurysm growth I would not be surprised if aspirin actually makes...

    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...

    Consciousness Is Quantum, Can Be Modulated With Specific Chemicals

    Many readers are likely familiar with the theories of Roger Penrose on the topics of consciousness and how it relates to physics and even cosmology. He is perhaps the most vocal proponent of "quantum consciousness" theories, including his own theory known as "orchestrated objective reduction"...

    PUFA Inhibit Progesterone Production And Thus Drive/cause Menopause

    Peat wrote in a few of his articles that menopause is largely driven by a deficiency of progesterone and mentioned several anecdotes of women in their 50s and 60s getting their periods back after supplementing with large doses progesterone. In one of his articles he said that PUFA and estrogen...

    Niacinamide May Treat Brain Cancer (glioblastoma)

    Neuroblastoma is one of the most common brain cancers and one of the most lethal ones of all cancers. Senator John McCain is probably the most famous recent victims of this cancer, and others famous cases include Senator Ted Kennedy and one of Joe Biden's son. The latter two died from the cancer...

    Yet Another Study Calls For Inhibiting Fat Oxidation As A Treatment For Cancer

    I have posted a number of threads on the role of fatty acid oxidation (FAO) and fatty acid synthase (FAS) in cancer growth and progression. Inhibiting Lipolysis May Treat / Cure Cancer For more than 100 years FAO and FAS were thought of pathways irrelevant for cancer and also as ones that are...

    Acetaminophen (Tylenol) Decreases Respiration By Changing Cardiolipin Composition

    I posted a few threads recently on the negative effects of acetaminophen (Tylenol) on brain function and steroid response. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) Exposure During Pregnancy Feminizes The Offspring Acetaminophen raises serotonin/adrenaline, aspirin lowers it User @Koveras also posted a thread...

    Estrogen Impairs Memory In Women

    There has been some evidence from rodent studies that estrogen and BDNF are antagonistic to each other as animals exposed to estrogen cannot remember very well. BDNF is akin to an anabolic steroid for the brain, and estrogen powerfully impairs its effects, especially in cases of traumatic brain...

    Famotidine Is A Powerful Anti-serotonin Drug, Can Even Treat Serotonin Syndrome

    I wanted to make this as a separate thread, given how important anti-serotonin chemicals for metabolism and how few of them are available OTC. It looks like our old friend famotidine is a powerful inhibitor of serotonin synthesis in the GI tract, and the mechanism of action is the H2 antagonism...

    Aspirin Can Slow Brain Aneurysm Growth

    I posted a few studies in the past showing that aspirin actually lowers the risk of deadly bleeding events in the GI and brain - the two most notorious side effects cites against the use of aspirin. The Benefits Of Aspirin Outweigh The Bleeding Risks GI Bleeding Risks Of Aspirin Are Grossly...
