    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...

    Poverty Makes People Dumb And Prematurely Old

    A common debate in public policy is whether people slide into poverty because they are stupid or being poor makes people stupid and unable to cope with life. The study below adds some evidence to the latter claim and found that extended poverty (20 years or longer) exposure also causes premature...

    Energy Deficiency Due To Stress Causes Anxiety, Panic Disorders, And Subbordination

    This is a great study on so many levels. First, it directly demonstrates that chronic stress leads to mitochondrial dysfunction and reduced oxidative phosphorylation. Second, it demonstrates that glucocorticoids (cortisol) are a direct cause of this energy production downregulation. Third, it...

    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...

    Estrogen Is A Stress Hormone, It Can Both Trigger And Potentiate The Effects Of Stress

    I was quite surprised to see this article in WebMD - a website that is bastion of mainstream medicine. It regularly promotes dogmas related serotonin, estrogen, oxytocin, growth hormone, etc and the myriad of "benefits" these substances bestow upon humans. However, a bit of truth apparently...

    Estrogen Excess During Pregnancy May Cause Autism

    Finally! Some common sense is emerging from the medical profession. For one, it points the finger straight at estrogen as a possible cause of autism. And not just estradiol, which the medical profession considers the only estrogen of note, but all 3 of them (estrone, estradiol, estriol). So, all...

    Psychiatric Diagnoses Are 'worthless', Most Mental Illness Stems From Stress (trauma)

    It is rare to see a study like the one below that does not hold anything back and exposes psychiatry for what it really is - fraud. Well, the exact words used were a "disingenuous categorical system" but words like "worthless" and "meaningless" were also used freely. In summary, psychiatry is a...

    Vast Majority (90%) Of Depression Cases Are Caused By Stress

    In case anybody continues to doubt the stress-depression connection and/or their doctor tries to convince them their depression is due to genetic predisposition, below is an eye-opening statement from the mighty WebMD - the mouthpiece of mainstream medicine. As the article states, about 10% of...

    Osteoporosis Is Caused By Mitochondrial Dysfunction Driven By Nitric Oxide (NO)

    Let’s repeat the mantra one more time – structure and function cannot be separated, they are mutually dependent at every level of reality/life. As such, it is little surprise (to us) that a structural disorder like osteoporosis may be caused by a deficiency in energy production. Yet, despite...

    Mitochondria (energy) As The Main Driver Of Health, Intelligence, And Aging

    We are finally starting to see Peat enter the mainstream and article like the one below are calling for a complete review of what we know about health and aging and how intelligence is tied to them. As the authors says, or actually borrows from Peat, there is solid evidence that mitochondrial...

    Blocking Stress (adrenaline) Just Once Cures PTSD And Maybe Any Mental Disorder

    This is a remarkable study, which once again implicates extreme stress in the pathology of mental health disorders, specifically anxiety and PTSD. Just a few days ago I posted a study showing a high cortisol (C) / testosterone (T) ratio is likely causative in PTSD. People with high C/T ratio...

    Damaged Mitochondria And Endotoxin (LPS) Drive Chronic Inflammation

    Chronic, low-grade inflammation has now been recognized as the main cause behind a number of chronic degenerative conditions including CVD, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer, Parkinson, etc. Mainstream medicine claims that the cause of this chronic low-grade inflammatory reaction is unknown, despite...

    High Cortisol And Low Testosterone Likely Drive PTSD

    As the article below states, 20%+ of service members come back with PTSD. It is a devastating mental condition that makes patients not only unable to participate meaningfully in society but often drives them to violent and homicidal/suicidal behavior. Given the roles of cortisol and serotonin in...

    Cheating Is Driven By Cortisol, Not Testosterone

    The topic of macho behavior and its apparent mediator testosterone has been studies every since steroids were discovered. The mainstream dogma states that high testosterone drives cheating behavior (especially of males) as some sort of dominance-asserting behavior of genetically superior...

    Cortisol (stress) Directly Causes Depression

    I have posted quite a few threads/posts on the role of stress as perhaps the main cause of depression and other mental disorders. Officially, psychiatry claims that no environmental factor is known to be a direct cause of depression and that depression is a “complex” mix of genetic...

    Stress (epinephrine And Lactate) Cause Tumor Growth, Vitamin C Stops It

    Yet another study linking chronic stress to cancer growth. I posted several threads in the past demonstrating the negative effects epinephrine and lipolysis on cancer cell growth and how administering a beta blocker can inhibit the growth of tumors. Stress (adrenaline, Noradrenaline) As The Main...

    Pregnenolone Advances As A Treatment For Loneliness In Humans

    A few years ago, I posted a thread on the possibility of using pregnenolone as a treatment for loneliness in humans. Pregnenolone As A Treatment For Loneliness At the time, the studies were mostly based on animal models and a small pilot human study. It seems that the results were promising...

    Most People Recover From "addiction" On Their Own

    We have discussed the issue of "addiction" many times on this forum. Starting with the "Rat Park" experiment in the 1970s, there have been numerous studies showing that "addiction" is nothing but a desperate attempt at self medication as a way to limit the effects of chronic stress. Addiction...

    Stress And Learned Helplessness May Be The Main Cause Of Dementia

    A great study showing that controlling for factors such as sex, marital status, lower educational level, lifestyle factors, existing chronic and acute disease, substance abuse, etc did NOT change dementia risk. The only thing that correlated (likely causatively) with risk of dementia (e.g...
