SFA / MUFA are preferentially oxidized, while PUFA are stored/accumulated

Just a quick post in response to some of the hate mail I keep getting on a daily basis in regards to the body’s discriminatory treatment of various fat types. According to various proponents of keto diets, fasting, etc the organism has no preference for one type of fat or another in terms of oxidation … Read more SFA / MUFA are preferentially oxidized, while PUFA are stored/accumulated

CamphoSal – Liquid Camphoric Acid + Salol

As many readers know, Peat has written extensively on the benefits of antibiotics and on keeping the GI tract as free of bacteria as possible. Bacterial overgrowth in the colon alone is already a problem due to the production of endotoxin, but in hypothyroid people this bacterial overgrowth can extend into the small intestine. The … Read more CamphoSal – Liquid Camphoric Acid + Salol

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 strong evidence in support of … Read more Blue light accelerates aging and reduces lifespan by more than 50%

Endotoxin has a G.E.L.D.I.N.G effect, causes obesity and hypogonadism

A very interesting study proposing that the decline in gonadal function seen in obese/diabetic men is due to chronically elevated endotoxin levels in such people. The study calls this phenomenon (G)ut (E)dotoxin (L)eading to a (D)ecline (I)n (G)onadal function (GELDING) due to the remarkable similarities in the phenotypes caused by castration and chronic endotoxemia. While … Read more Endotoxin has a G.E.L.D.I.N.G effect, causes obesity and hypogonadism

PUFA and serotonin promote each other, and likely cause mental illness

I neat new study that draws a direct parallel between PUFA-driven inflammation, serotonin and depression. As the study demonstrated, high levels of the PUFA arachidonic acid (AA) are highly correlated with lower density (expression) of the serotonin transported (SERT, 5-HTT), and the relationship is actually causative in both directions (AA<->serotonin). This results in increased serotonin … Read more PUFA and serotonin promote each other, and likely cause mental illness

Acidosis (Warburg Effect) drives cancer through increased fat oxidation (Randle Cycle)

The evidence continues to pile on that naming the (in)famous observation made by Otto Warburg in regards to cancer an “effect” is one of the most profound falsehoods the medical profession has ever concocted. Almost a century after the Warburg “Effect” term was coined, the evidence rapidly accumulates that the lactic acidosis is not at … Read more Acidosis (Warburg Effect) drives cancer through increased fat oxidation (Randle Cycle)

The (remarkable) intelligence of plants

I made a few posts in the past about the altruism of plants, as well as their apparent consciousness (affected by anesthesia) despite the fact that they do not have a nervous system. The article below describes additional experiments demonstrating that plants are apparently capable of a number of stunning feats that make them look … Read more The (remarkable) intelligence of plants

The Linguistic Genius of Prairie Dogs

A nice article showing that the one of the most uniquely human aspect of our existence – language – is actually a capacity that much “lower” animals possess as well, and may be even more adept than us at using. Apparently, prairie dogs are not only capable of verbalizing sentences with just about the same … Read more The Linguistic Genius of Prairie Dogs

Lack of light exposure may be the main cause of the myopia boom

As the study says, there has been a drastic increase in myopia cases over the last century. Early research pointed at excessive indoor book reading and studying as a cause of the epidemic. Unsurprisingly, these initial claims were quickly drowned by fake research denying that such a link exists. Modern society depends for its survival … Read more Lack of light exposure may be the main cause of the myopia boom

Drop in androgen levels causes Parkinson Disease (PD), DHT reverses it

Yet another study demonstrating that many of the so-called chronic, degenerative and above all “mysterious” conditions often have quite a simple cause and, potentially, treatment. There is no need for mutated genes or complex interactions of genes with environment that nobody can decipher. Chronic stress leads to metabolic and endocrine changes that alone are sufficient … Read more Drop in androgen levels causes Parkinson Disease (PD), DHT reverses it
