    Do we really need 7-8 hours of sleep ? Does low stress/faster metabolism lower the time our body's require to rest ?

    I noticed that when my health was bad or when I had a stressful job I could sleep 10 hours a day probably - I know that if I had a long day at work and only got 6 hours of sleep I would wake up very tired and with adrenaline pumping - did not feel well rested at all - I would get so tired from...

    Nerves Shot Because of Emotional Stress

    I'm currently under emotional stress from three directions: my demented brother, my estranged wife, and my inability to make headway in my work. Three weeks ago, I became bloated and gassy, acid rising to my throat during sleep. The gastroenterologist recommended an endoscopy but I declined...

    Can a fruit sense when you are about to kill him/cut him open ? Do they release a stress response if they see you coming for the kill ?

    I remember coming across a study on this forum (I believe it was a Russian experiment) where a researcher took a pineapple and cut it open in front of another pineapple - The pineapple that was alive to "Watch" the encounter released an electrical response when the person that killed the...

    Can earplugs or sound-resistant rooms have a positive effect on metabolism in certain environments ? Examining the cortisol increase for loud noises

    I notice that since Peating - I notice "stressors" a lot more - I cannot stand being around a construction site - hearing the sound of a jackhammer or a drill sends me to disarray or someone hammering really stresses me out I also notice that if I'm in a party-like environment - where the...

    Vitamin D3 anabolic, calcitriol catabolic for muscle/thymus

    Several great studies, which will probably do little to calm down the controversy that seems to be brewing lately in the blogosphere over whether supplementing with vitamin D3 is beneficial or not. Namely, the last study below demonstrated direct muscle-anabolic effects from supplementation with...

    The feeling of being watched - what about the feeling of being recorded ? Do celebs hate paparazzi because of EMF ?

    I am sure most of us are familiar with the phenomenon of "feeling like you are being watched" - I have experienced something even more interesting - when someone is recording me with their phone camera or a DSLR especially - I can immediately sense it even if I am not facing that direction - I...

    Exercise causes (and worsens) arterial calcification

    A great new study sent to me by one of my readers. It will more than likely cause a lot of controversy, despite its findings having a very simple explanation. Namely, chronic exercise increases baseline cortisol and over time, cortisol (acting through the aldosterone/mineralocorticoid receptor)...

    Serotonin puts the brakes on libido, by lowering dopamine

    Nothing really surprising, as far as Peatarians are concerned, in the findings of this study. I am only posting it here as it is one of the few that officially acknowledge that serotonergic drugs cause sexual dysfunction - i.e. something mainstream medicine has vehemently denied for decades. As...

    Cellular "memory" of stress can be passed on for 50+ generations

    There was a study that came out 2-3 years ago showing that when animals were exposed to a toxin, often the negative effects did not even manifest in the directly exposed organism but manifested in their offspring and were passed on for more than 14 generations. The study below now demonstrates...

    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. Administration of androgens (known cortisol and estrogen blockers) such as testosterone...

    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". Yet, how exactly is insufficient progesterone responsible for premature birth has remained a...

    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...
