    Pregnenolone (P5) Fully Prevents Testicular Atrophy Due To Steroid (ab)use Or High Estrogen

    I often get emails from bodybuilders, athletes and others who have used or currently use steroids and want to either protect themselves while using those steroids or want to recover after long-term usage.

    Estrogen And Cortisol, Not Androgens, Suppress Immunity

    There is a very famous theory in reproductive biology still considered the dominant one in its field. Namely, males have to accept a trade-off between androgen levels and immunity.

    Probiotics Powerfully Suppress The Immune System

    Casein Is A Potent Tumor Suppressor

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3507493/ "...Here, we identified the milk protein α-casein as a novel suppressor of tumor growth and metastasis. Briefly, Met-1 mammary tumor cells expressing α-casein showed a ~5-fold reduction in tumor growth and a near 10-fold decrease in...
