    Simple saline solution stops SARS-CoV-2...and maybe all viruses?

    More news adding to the evidence that COVID-19 and its associated virus are little more than a media circus, at least when it comes to the gauging the pandemic's true danger to our health. We already have at least two amazing studies showing vitamins D/E can not only stop/treat COVID-19, but are...

    Serotonin (and SSRI drugs) can cause anxiety and PTSD

    Yet another great study exposing just how much of a "happy hormone" serotonin really is. As usual, the popular press article does everything possible to avoid pointing the finger at serotonin and even engages in misdirection. For example, it says that SERT is the main target of drugs like...

    High-salt Diet Strongly Inhibits Cancer Growth

    I am posting this study mostly as a response to the hostile exchanges I have had with doctors over what they claimed was "irresponsible" promotion of high salt intake. While these discussions mostly revolved around CVD, I also made claims that increased sodium intake would be protective for...

    Anti-Peat High-Salt Augments Aldosterone Toxicity Despite Lowered Plasma-Readings

    High-Salt Augments Aldosterone Toxicity Despite Lowered Plasma-Readings. Blood-LVL-Aldosterone gets lowered by sodium,but apparently sensitivity rises,augmenting damage.Sodium is truly almost a micronutrient,with intakes as low as 500mg-1500mg,in indigenous tribes,lower than magnesium,lower...

    Interstitial Sodium

    I highlighted some parts but other parts are interesting too https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0735109714071782 Consequently, a large amount of Na+ is bound to GAGs, creating a microenvironment of hypertonic Na+concentration (19). However, the dense network exhibits a low...

    Cortisol And Aldosterone Cause Vascular Calcification

    In one of his newsletter circa 2015, Ray wrote about the role of aldosterone in heart failure, heart attacks, shock, and edema. He conjectured that aldosterone antagonists would one day be recognized as therapeutic for these conditions. Almost all types of heart disease start with vascular...

    In Defense Of Gilbert Ling - Ion Pumps Not Needed To Explain Cell Physiology

    The purported existence of pumps is the official reason why Gilbert Ling's AI hypothesis was removed from Wikipedia. I posted a few days ago about the "newly" discovered role of ATP as a protein hydrotrope and co-solvent - something Ling postulated back in the 1950s. Gilbert Ling's Theory...

    More Dietary Salt Increases Urea Synthesis And Energy Requirements

    The salt recommendations mentioned by Peat in some of his articles have been the source of much controversy. He has given accounts of people with various conditions recovering when they increased their salt intake to 1-2 tablespoons daily. I also posted studies showing that when sodium intake is...

    Opioids Increase Pain Through Endotoxin Receptor, Minocycline Reverses The Effect

    Most people here know Peat's opinion about opioids due to their effects on histamine, estrogen, and promoting tissue growth. A few weeks ago I posted a link in regards to the so-called "endotoxin receptor" known as TLR4, and how opioids are the main class of substances that activate that...

    Aldosterone Causes Fat Gain, Sodium May Prevent It

    In confirmation of what @haidut said here Salt Prevents Weight Gain On High Fat Diet These researchers have shown that blocking Aldosterone, in this case with a receptor blocker, prevents fat gain on a high fat diet. The same effect of reducing aldosterone signalling, may be achievable more...

    Low Sodium Diet Increases CVD / Death Regardless Of Person's Blood Pressure

    Another big point in favor of salt and this time the scientists actually provide salient explanation for why the low salt diet was detrimental - i.e. it increases renin, aldosterone and adrenaline. Pretty much what Peat wrote...about 30 years before this study. It also matches well another study...

    Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate) Studied For Cancer

    If you go to the American Cancer Society website, there is a special section on "quack" treatments for cancer and one of the listed quacks is baking soda. As is usually the case, bashing something publicly does nor prevent big pharma of studying it privately for fun and profit (i.e. see my posts...
