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 function and ATP … Read more

Nearly all pharma drugs and dietary supplements contain highly allergenic excipients

Finally a study that directly corroborates one of Peat’s most consistent message over the years. Namely, that drugs prescribed by doctors and dietary supplements in the forms of capsules/tablets contain additives/excipients that are not harmless at all and in fact can be responsible for many severe health issues affecting the public at large. Peat’s latest … Read more

Endotoxin (LPS) may be a major cause of preterm births

As many readers have probably heard, rates of preterm births due to a variety of maternal conditions including (pre)eclampsia has been steadily increasing since the 1980s. The official version is that the cause is unknown despite older studies proving definitively that progesterone deficiency was a major cause and that treatment with progesterone or increasing dietary … Read more

Heart failure deaths on the rise in younger US adults

The bad news for younger Americans just keep on coming. In addition to lethal cancers, diabetes, stroke, CVD, infertility, etc now we can add yet another “old man” disease to the list of banes inflicting the “young”. Heart failure is a condition traditionally seen in people 65 and older, and mortality from it has been … Read more

Endocrine disruptors in sunscreen absorb systemically after just one day of use, persist for days

So much for the safety of sunscreen. Of course, the article immediately goes on the defensive and warns against stopping sunscreen. It even includes gems like “The sun is the real enemy here” and keeps repeating the mantra that it is all about risk-benefits analysis. Yet, even MSM is forced to admit that the several … Read more

Height is dependent on diet quality, not genes

I posted a few threads in the past demonstrating that gene are likely not the main driver of height, despite the mainstream dogma vehement claiming to the contrary. Intelligence and height are often presented as two of the most genetically driven variables of any given human. Below is yet another study demonstrating that switching to … Read more

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 in withdrawal are routinely given vitamin B1 in hospitals … Read more

SSRI drugs during pregnancy cause child autism, antiserotonin drugs cure it

Yet another study pointing the finger directly at serotonin as a major causative factor in autism. This study comes just days after I made the post on decreased allopregnanolone synthesis by placenta as a possible cause of autism. It pains me just to think that currently all SSRI drugs are rated as safe for pregnant … Read more

Cosmology is nothing but a collection of fictional beasts and folktales

I did not expect to see this article come out of the Scientific American but I guess the situation is becoming untenable and somebody has to call the scam that “theoretical physicists” have been running for more than a century. Both a scientific and financial scam that is. As the article aptly points out, the … Read more

The people with the world’s healthiest hearts eat a 70%+ carbohydrate diet

So much for carbs making you fat, diabetic, sick and old. This is a nice corroboration of the other thread I posted on Okinawan diet. The author of this study actually mentions the Okinawan people as second-most-healthy in terms of cardiovascular system. The Tsimane diet has the same amount of protein as the Western diets … Read more
