    Emulsifiers Found In Most Commercial Foods Cause Brain Tumors, Hemorrhage, And Stroke

    A really interesting study that demonstrates how emulsifiers considered "benign" by the FDA/USDA and present in virtually all commercial food can actually cause quite a bit of damage to health. The study demonstrates that even a low-dose of a common commercial emulsifier Polysorbate 80 (P80)...

    Vegans And Vegetarians Have A Higher Risk Of Stroke

    A good reminder that vegetables are not as benign, let alone as healthy, as your board-certified, PhD-boasting, marathon-running corporate nutritionist would have you believe. In fact, this is not the first study to seriously question the "eat mostly plants" mantra. Several other very large and...

    Aspirin Actually Decreases Risk Of Bleeding In The Brain

    As many readers know, one of the scary stories Big Pharma tells about aspirin is that it increases the risk of bleeding in the GI tract or brain. As such aspirin has long been bashed as a possible cause of so-called hemorrhaging strokes. I posted studies a few years ago demonstrating that...

    Study Links Stroke To Vitamin B1 Deficiency

    The study was observational but I am inclined to see a causative role of the deficiency for stroke. My inclination stems from the thousands of intervention studies with vitamin B1 to treat a host of neurological issues including accelerating recovery from stroke. In addition, chronic alcoholics...

    Pyrucet - Liquid (ethyl) Pyruvate/Aceatoacetate Mix

    As many forum users know, I have been interested in the Randle Cycle (glucose/fat competition for oxidation) for quite some time. The topic of limiting fatty acid oxidation (FAO) and promoting glucose oxidation is pretty central to the metabolic theory of health. Peat has written many times on...

    One In Four People Will Have Stroke At Least Once, Including People In Their 20s

    Yet another great indication of the "improving" health of the Western world (and China). Those geographical areas saw the biggest risk increases over the last quarter century, and in some of those areas the lifetime risk of stroke reached 40%+. China took the "crown" in the male competition...

    Aspirin May Help Treat Tuberculous Meningitis

    As some people with medical background on this forum know, tuberculous meningitis is the most deadly form of meningitis. Not only does it have a high mortality rate, but the people who do survive often suffer a series of strokes, which leave many disabled for life. The treatment options are very...

    Vitamin D Rapidly Reduces Arterial Stiffness In Humans

    As many of you know arterial stiffness is one of the main signs of CVD and contributes significantly to both elevations of blood pressure (BP) and actual ischemic events in brain/heart. According to official guidelines, arterial stiffness cannot be reversed once it sets in, and the only recourse...

    Androgen Deficiency As The Main Cause Of Chronic Disease In Males

    This is one of the most comprehensive reviews that I have ever come across on the topic of androgens and their role in male health. It is authored by one of the most renowned experts in urology - the former director of the Department of Urology at Boston University (BU) School of Medicine. Given...

    Endotoxin (LPS) Theory Of Atherosclerosis (CVD)

    I posted a study more than year ago, which examined the role of NO in aging and disease. The Nitric Oxide (NO) Theory Of Aging One of the main endogenous stimulators of NO synthesis is endotoxin (LPS). It turns out that the connection between LPS and CVD has been studied for a long time in...

    Flagship Blood Thinner Worse Than Aspirin For Preventing Strokes, Trial Halted

    Many of you may have seen the ads on TV for the blood thinner Xarelto. Sadly, those ads have lately started to show increasingly younger people with apparent blood clotting issues, some of them clearly in their 20s. Xarelto is the latest attempt of the pharma industry to replace the old and...

    CNN: Saturated Fat Does NOT Clog Your Arteries; Stress And Inflammation Do

    I think we will be seeing more and more of these "breaking news" on major news outlets as the house of cards made of PUFA slowly crumbles. The FDA already reversed its official recommendations on cholesterol, but left the policies on saturated fat intact even though the same study on which the...

    Stroke Rates Have Almost Doubled In Young Adults

    I posted recently about two studies showing rapidly increasing incidence of colon cancer, and diabetes in young adults. At least for the colon cancer cases, the respective study itself stated that neither genes, nor obesity can explain the increase. Breaking News: Colorectal Cancer Rates In...

    NSAID Other Than Aspirin Strongly Increase Risk Of Cardiac Arrest, Heart Failure, And Stroke

    It has been know for at least 20 years that taking NSAID drugs other than aspirin increases risk of heart problems. The risk was considered low and even if materialized it was thought it would lead to relatively low grade heart attacks. However, this new study shows that the risk is higher than...

    SSRI Drugs Increase Risk Of Bleeding In The Brain

    Incidence of GI and brain bleeding events has been increasing over the last 30 years.Aspirin was blamed the increase of both the brain and GI bleeding events. Recent studies seem to have vindicated aspirin a bit, but the question remains about what is causing the increased incidence of brain and...

    Low-dose Glycine As Stroke Treatment In Humans

    The mainstream therapy for (non-hemorrhaging) stroke is a IV anticoagulants like warfarin, or a baby aspirin within the first few hours of getting stroke symptoms while the person is on her/his way to the hospital. These two studies show that sublingual glycine in a dose of 1g-2g within the...

    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...
