    Damaged mitochondria may cause 90%+ of Parkinson Disease (PD) cases

    More evidence that yet another "incurable" condition is little more than energy deficit (due to mitochondrial dysfunction) in disguise. In this case the mitochondrial dysfunction was caused by accumulation of mitochondrial debris inside the cell, which has been repeatedly shown by other studies...

    Stress ups cortisol/estrogen/prolactin, drops DHT, causes male infertility and prostate issues

    If you try to discuss infertility with a fertility/reproductive specialist or an endocrinologist, and mention that chronic stress may be a factor in infertility, you will probably get laughed out of the room. This is not just speculation. This exact same thing happened to several friends and...

    Working too hard / long can kill you

    Another study directly implicating work stress in not only chronic, degenerative conditions but also death directly. Apparently, as corrupt/inept as W.H.O is, the evidence linking hard work with early death is too strong even for them to ignore. Btw, what the study used as definition for "hard"...

    Vitamin B6, lowering stress, may treat schizophrenia

    Both human and animal studies. The human study was with pyridoxamine - a vitamin B6 isomer declared by FDA to be a "prescription drug" and as such banned for OTC sale in USA while still being widely available in most other countries. That FDA ruling is pointless due to the fact that pyridoxamine...

    Stress causes/exacerbates allergies, pregnenolone/progesterone therapeutic

    Yet another studies demonstrating the "controversial" link between stress and a condition doctors insist has nothing to do with stress or hormones in general. This time the culprit is CRF/CRH, which is the initial step in the "stress" cascade and is now known to be implicated in conditions such...

    Stress (cortisol) causes hair loss

    Amazing study, which perfectly corroborates the findings of a previous study showing that estrogen (a cortisol promoter) also causes hair loss, while administering an estrogen-blocker reversed the hair loss.

    Stress (cortisol) causes pre-term birth by blocking progesterone

    If you ask a gynecologist what causes premature birth, the answer will usually be something along the lines of "insufficient progesterone" often accompanied by mumbling about "genetic predispositions".

    Serotonin (5-HT) is a key driver of asthma

    Yet another blow to the status of the so-called "happiness hormone". While histamine, acetylcholine, and estrogen have long been known as key drivers of asthma the link between the mast cells and the nervous system's production of the vasoconstrictor acetylcholine has remained unknown. The study...

    Childhood stress causes mental illness in adults by blunting androgens

    Yet another great study solidifying the evidence on just how detrimental early childhood stress is. It has been known for decades that childhood stress leads to early puberty, and that the latter is associated with greatly increased risk of chronic diseases later in life, as well as early death...

    Stress (cortisol) as the driver of hyperglycemia in type II diabetes

    To most of my readers, the title of the post may seem like something completely obvious and not deserving explanation of clarification. However, according to mainstream medicine (until now, at least) cortisol does not really have a causative role either in the development of diabetes type II or...

The study below demonstrates that sucrose consumption for just 3 days prior, blunted most of the negative effects of stress, and especially the rise in plasma cortisol. The HED of sucrose was about 4g/kg, which matches closely...

    Differences between begging and working -- a comprehensive outlook of livelihood.

    I've heard that you should find a job so you don't fall in to the ranks of begging. After all, begging is just something asking for money and does not make any themselves, right? I wonder what percent of people would want or expect something from someone else who has to give it to them, ignoring...
