    Drop In Mom's Thyroid Levels, Undetectable By Blood Tests, Tanks Child IQ

    I am posting this article mostly for the specific quote corroborating Peat's writing that thyroid blood tests are very unreliable and always have to be interpreted together with other "biomarkers" of thyroid function such as pulse, core temperature, muscle tone, reflexes, etc before a...

    Elevated Maternal Estrogen (estradiol) Again Linked To Autism

    Just weeks after the first study on the link between elevated estrogens (all types) and autism, a new study again demonstrated a link between elevated maternal estrogen (estradiol in this case) and risk of offspring autism...

    SSRI Drugs During Pregnancy Cause Child Autism, Antiserotonin Drugs Cure It

    Almost four years ago I posted a study implicating elevated serotonin in autism and that study also showed that administering serotonin receptor antagonists was effective in reversing the pathology. Serotonin Causes Autism; Blocking It May Treat Autism And now, another study not only points the...

    Androsterone May Be The Main Source Of DHT, Drives Fetal Masculinization

    The study below demonstrates that not only may androsterone be the primary pro-hormone used endogenously for DHT synthesis, it likely also drives the masculinization of sexual organs in the fetus. For a long time it was thought that the so-called "front pathway" using testosterone (T) produced...

    Giving Niacinamide To Pregnant Females Greatly Benefits The Offspring

    A few very interesting studies came out in 2018 showing that niacinamide may be very helpful for (pre)-eclampsia, as well as prevent miscarriages and birth defects. Keep in mind that according to mainstream medicine, eclampsia is untreatable and the approach is to have the baby delivered ASAP...

    Children Inherit Mitochondrial DNA From Their Fathers Too

    One of the unquestionable dogmas of genetics (up until) today is that all mitochondrial DNA of a child is inherited strictly from the mother. This firmly entrenched belief is taught as an immutable truth in medical schools and is used to justify extensive genealogical genomic tests down the...

    Dads Pass On More Than Genetics In Their Sperm

    Another good study showing that our lifestyle choices directly affect our future children, despite what the morons in white coats keeps repeating. It has been known for years that dads in poorer health tend to beget more sickly children but the explanation had always been genetic - i.e. the dad...

    Paternal Use Of SSRI Increase Risk For ADHD In His Children

    By now even the general public has gotten a wind of just how bad the SSRI drugs are. But most of the studies demonstrating negative effects from SSRI use are focused on the health of the patient taking them or the health of the baby whose mother is taking SSRI while pregnant or during...

    Chronic Fasting / Famine Can Cause Diabetes And The Adaptation Is Hereditary

    Yet another study that shows why chronic fasting is not likely to lead to good long term outcomes for your health. While it can be argued that famine is not the same as fasting, the level of caloric restriction required to see the benefits reported in animal studies comes pretty close to what...

    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...

    Constant Parental Stress Leads To Deliberate Change In Offspring Epigenetics

    The ability of life events to influence non-genetic biomarkers and the hereditability of such biomarkers is a controversial topic these days, and it slowly disintegrates the centuries-old genetic dogma. This study was the first one that looked at constant stress on the parents and how that...

    SSRI use during pregnancy doubles child autism risk

    Not really a surprise to the people on this forum, but I thought it is worth mentioning given the recent posts on maternal pregnancy stress and hypothyroidism increasing risk of autism or homosexuality. And this time the recommendation is to just "do more studies" but rather to replace SSRI...
