The study looked at correlations between ambient temperature and criminal activity and found that higher temperatures correlate with reduced SERT density and as such elevated extracellular serotonin. The SERT protein is the one that deactivates serotonin and it is a sodium-dependent protein. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serotonin_transporter Unfortunately, the popular press article that picked up this study included their … Read more Elevated serotonin increases criminal activity
I mentioned the idea of “suspended animation” on several of Danny Roddy’s podcasts and posted in a few threads that rat brains have been kept alive for days during experiments conducted in the early 1990s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suspended_animation https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8281302 These experiments severely challenge our idea of what it means to be “dead” and suggest there is indeed … Read more The brain can be revived hours after death, and without a body
As Peat has discussed many times in this interviews and most people know first-hand, FL is really not pleasant to bask under. Unfortunately, this is the default lightning in most administrative buildings, including hospitals and daycare facilities. FL use in residential buildings is also widespread. Despite literally millions of people complaining of headaches, vision problems, … Read more Fluorescent light (FL) exposure triggers chronic inflammation / immune overactivity
The condition known as “chemo brain” is notorious among cancer survivors and many other patients undergoing toxic interventions with chemotherapy and may affect up to 85% of cancer patients. It amounts to severe cognitive dysfunction, memory problems, and even personality changes that result in the patient becoming completely dependent and often unable to care for … Read more The (in)famous condition “chemo brain” may be simply a state of low DHEA
As Peat has written many times, there is truly no such thing as “beneficial” gut bacteria as long as they are capable of producing endotoxin (LPS). And since most bacterial species known to colonize the gut can produce LPS when exposed to undigested food or mechanical stimulation (stretching or even bouncing the intestine through, say, … Read more All gut bacteria is dangerous, their endotoxin drives liver cancer; antibiotics can cure.
As many of you know, there are two fundamental dogmas in reproductive medicine. One is that every woman is born with a fixed number of eggs and those cannot be replenished. The second one is that there is a biological fertility clock in every woman that inexorably ticks, and if the female does not have … Read more Fertility depends on metabollism (ATP), not age
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 a causative factor in PTSD. People with high C/T ratio also happen to … Read more Blocking stress signal (adrenaline) just once cures anxiety, PTSD and maybe any mental disorder.
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 the well-known role PUFA play as precursors of the most important inflammatory mediators (prostaglandins and … Read more Damaged mitochondria and endotoxin (LPS) drive chronic inflammation
Yet another study showing the beneficial effects of improving mitochondrial function. This time, the study looked at heart health and found that NAD precursors like niacinamide and nicotinamide riboside (NR) can help prevent the decline in mitochondrial function and oxygen consumption driven by various stresses, including toxic assaults and calcium overload. The study showed that … Read more Niacinamide may help treat/reverse heart disease
Yet another sad reminder of just how much the health of the average person has declined over the last 20 years. If these trends are not reversed or at least slowed down, we may start seeing people in their 20s filing for Medicare/Medicaid due to rapidly declining health and inability to cover their health expenses … Read more Epidemic of NAFLD and NASH in young people
