    Were males destined to die young ? Examining life expectancies in humans and mammals - males vs females

    I think by now most of us have heard about the idea that women live longer than men - "Among humans, women's life span is almost 8% on average longer than men's life span." "In every human population, women live longer than men, so much so...

    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...

    Estrogen Is A Major Cause Of Migraines

    After more than 80 years of claiming estrogen protected women from migraines and mood disorders (and prescribing HRT as prevention/treatment) modern medicine seems to be finally recognizing the causative role of estrogen in migraines. Peat has been saying this for years, and it should have been...

    More Than One Third Of Men And Almost Half Of Women Are Energy Deficient

    I wanted to note from the start that this is NOT about calories, this is about ENERGY deficiency as a result of bad metabolism. So, while not the same as hypothyroidism, this study shows just how sick the general population is (if we assume that energetic deficiency is behind all diseases). Now...

    Low DHEA-S Predicts Fractures In Older Men

    There is a big push to start treating older men with estrogen, just as women are, because estrogen is "good for the bone". No evidence exists to support this approach and in fact multiple studies in women have shown that low DHEA, and not estrogen, is what is associated with weak bones. In...

    DHT Lowers Risk Of Diabetes In Older Males

    Most endocrinologists view DHT as an almost exclusively bad hormone. Aside from the its much publicized (and likely incorrect) role in prostate cancer and MPB, endocrinologists consider DHT as a causative agent in insulin resistance and even diabetes type II. Most of that misguided opinion...

    DHT Is The Primary Driver Of Male Sexual Activity And Is Crucial For Male Orgasm

    Yet another study pointing out that DHT is quite the good guy, for both men and women alike. Contribution of dihydrotestosterone to male sexual behaviour. - PubMed - NCBI "...RESULTS: Serum dihydrotestosterone concentration was the only independent hormonal predictor of the frequency of...

    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...

    Caffeine Can Cure Baldness In Both Men And Women

    This is actually a follow up study and unfortunately was once again done in vitro and not in vivo. Nonetheless, the authors seem pretty confident that the approach works and in the actual experiment discovered that caffeine in concentrations of 0.005% - 0.0005% is several times more effective...

    Lower Androgens And/or Increase In Pituitary Hormones Linked To Increased Mortality In Men

    So much for T and DHT being bad for older men. More specifically, lower androgen levels and higher pituitary hormone levels were linked to higher cancer and CVD mortality. Temporal changes in sex hormones linked to increased mortality in older men "...Increased risk for all-cause mortality was...
