    Serotonin, PUFA and histamine increase leaky brain

    This is just just another angle showing how stress hormones and PUFA affect the whole body negatively. Increased Blood-brain-barrier permeability(leaky brain) is linked to many diseases : "Blood–brain barrier dysfunction contributes to pathology in a range of neurological conditions including...

    Drop In Androgen Levels Causes Parkinson Disease (PD), DHT Reverses It

    Yet another study demonstrating that many of the so-called chronic, degenerative and above all "mysterious" conditions often have quite a simple cause and, potentially, treatment. There is no need for mutated genes or complex interactions of genes with environment that nobody can decipher...

    Blue Light Accelerates Aging And Reduces Lifespan By More Than 50%

    In one of his interviews, Peat mentioned that red light exposure may be the most fundamental protective factor in nature, and that a deficiency of it (as commonly seen in Western lifestyles) may be the main driver of systemic aging and the diseases associated with it. The study below provides...

    Adrenaline (epinephrine) Damages The Brain

    Adrenaline injections directly into the heart are the only currently approved treatment for cardiac arrest. It is considered the patient's only chance of revival and recovery. However, observational trials over the year have noticed that cardiac arrest survivors often have severe neurological...

    Gilbert Ling's Theory Confirmed - ATP Required For Protein Solubility & Aggregation Control

    As some of you know, the Wikipedia article on Gilbert Ling's AI hypothesis was removed due to being too "alternative" and not accepted as valid by the scientific "consensus". In the mainstream biochemical view, ATP is nothing but an energy currency for cells and has no role in maintaining...

    Carbonic Anhydrase Is A Key Driver Of Aging; Inhibiting It Is Beneficial

    In support of Ray's views of CO2 as one of the main factors in mitochondrial biogenesis and health, and as such in a host of health conditions, this study found that carbonic anhydrase levels are higher and the enzyme itself is more active in both aging and degenerative conditions. Inhibiting...

    Maternal Inflammation Causes Brain Damage (autism) By Raising Serotonin

    I posted several studies recently about maternal hypothyroidism and stress being linked to autism, as well as the use of serotonin antagonist to reverse autism pathology in an animal model. This study adds more weight to the serotonin-autism connection. It showed that triggering flu-like...
