    Does tobacco lower estrogen?

    I have heard from some people that tobacco lowers estrogen and masculinizes men and women, but I also read a study saying smoking leads to earlier menopause in women. I want to hear this side of the story.

    Lowering Estrogen Prevents Memory Decline In Menopausal Females

    As many of my readers know, the WHI studies were highly detrimental to the profits of the estrogen industry. Every since the results of those studies came out, the estrogen industry has been trying to undermine the findings and re-introduce estrogen HRT for women with the claims that estrogen is...

    Pregnenolone (P5) - A New Osteoporosis Drug

    About a month ago, I made a post in regards to aspirin becoming a new treatment for osteoporosis. Several months ago, I made another post about an in-vitro study demonstrating powerful anabolic effects of pregnenolone (P5) on bones. Apparently, the protective effects of P5 on bone health are...

    PUFA Is A Cancer "sensitizer"

    A neat study, which demonstrates that in addition to its direct carcinogenic effects, PUFA is also a cancer "sensitizer" - i.e. is triggers the development of cancer in the presence of less-than-healthy chemicals that are relatively harmless by themselves. This sensitizing role of PUFA seems to...

    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...

    Niacinamide May Restore Female Fertility In Old Age

    The mainstream medical dogma is that after the onset of menopause, female reproductive potential is essentially zero. I posted a thread recently that challenged that dogma and demonstrated that infertility is essentially an energetic dysfunction process and can be reversed with exposure to red...

    While Estradiol Falls, Estrone Rises With Age And Is Much More Relevant For Estrogen-driven Diseases

    I posted a few studies in the past demonstrating that estrone (E1) and especially its long-lasting derivative estrone sulfate (E1S) are reliable biomarkers of both breast and prostate cancer progression/prognosis. However, for some reason the medical industry is obsessed with estradiol and since...

    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...

    Even A Slight Increase In Estrogen Strongly Decreases DHEA Levels

    I posted a few studies in the past revealing that in old age (and menopause) the levels of pregnenolone, progesterone and DHEA declines, while that of cortisol and aldosterone stays the same or even increases. Pregnenolone, Progesterone And DHEA Drop, Cortisol Rises In Aging The decline in...

    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...

    FDA Approved First Drug Containing DHEA

    I knew it was coming, the evidence in favor of DHEA is just too strong to ignore and the pharma companies are desperate for something that works. The bad news is that the more drugs based on DHEA that appear the more reason and clout FDA acquires to eventually start controlling sales of DHEA...

    The Final Word Is Out - HRT Triples Risk Of Breast Cancer In Women

    The words in the title are not mine, they are from the actual study. As many of you have heard, the pharma industry has big hopes for estrogen HRT to make a comeback and has sponsored several "independent" studies claiming that estrogen is not dangerous and the results from the Women Health...

    Low-dose Glycine As A Treatment For Menopause, Osteoporosis, Obesity

    This study is a great find IMO but unfortunately it uses the elevations in blood levels of estrogen as a reason to label glycine as estrogenic, which is wrong. Just like progesterone, glycine can trigger release of estrogen from tissues/cells and this elevates the blood levels while lowering it...
