    Aspirin May Protect Lungs From Air Pollution

    It seems that there is nothing mighty aspirin cannot do. Just recently, I posted about its ability to treat (and, more importantly, potentially have curative effect) erectile dysfunction (ED) at least as effectively as established drugs such as Viagra, Levitra, Cialis, etc. yet with much fewer...

    Johnson & Johnson Concealed For Decades Its Baby Powder Had Asbestos

    It is hard to get more nefarious than that. Apparently, not only did Johnson & Johnson (J&J) sell baby powder laced with asbestos but it knew about it for several decades and did everything it could to prevent the information from leaking to the public. Keep in mind, this is on top of the...

    High-dose Vitamin C Is Making A Comeback As A Treatment For Cancer

    It look like Linus Pauling may have the last laugh after all. The studies below show that high-dose IV therapy with vitamin C dramatically increases survival of several highly lethal cancers (e.g. pancreatic). Even the lead author is in disbelief and says the results are unheard of...

    Lungs Are A Blood-making Organ

    Ray wrote a few times that people with clotting disorder often have issues with high serotonin and estrogen, and lung disorders like pulmonary hypertension, COPD and even cystic fibrosis. Lungs are also one of the few organs outside of the brain and GI tract that is capable of synthesizing...

    Stress At Work Increases Risk For Certain Cancers

    I suspect work stress increases risk for all cancers but that would be too political of a study to conduct. For now, we can say that it at least increase risk for GI and bladder cancers. ScienceDirect "...Employment in at least one stressful job was associated with increased odds of cancers of...

    Menopause Is Associated With Accelerated Lung Function Decline

    http://www.atsjournals.org/doi/abs/10.1164/rccm.201605-0968OC Going through the menopause impacts the lungs the same way as smoking 20 cigarettes a day for a decade, scientists claim. Experts say the change accelerates the decline in the lungs' ability to expand and expel air. This could make...

    Acute Colon / Lung Damage May Be Due To Endotoxin; Breast Milk Stops It

    The study was done to mimic the condition necrotizing enterocolitis in premature babies, but if you look at the actual study the scientists think the mechanism is probably the same for most cases of acute colon and lung damage. Once again, our old "friend" endotoxin rears its ugly head and acts...

    Many Officially Diagnosed Cancers Are Not Cancer At All

    While this study is mostly about thyroid "cancer" it actually highlights a problem that Ray has written a lot about - i.e. the manipulation of official diagnostic criteria to skew disease cure rates in favor of modern medicine. Thankfully, the trend seems to be reversing and thyroid "cancer" is...

    Gamma and alpa tocopherol affect lungs in opposite ways

    This study is controversial, but I decided to post it anyways. In his earlier writings Peat wrote almost exclusively about alpha tocopherol and its beneficial effects. As more studies came out about the other isomers, I think Peat started leaning more towards the gamma isomer. Well, according to...
