Estrogen, not androgens, may be the cause of baldness

A quick post about a study calling into question yet another dogma in medicine – i.e. that the “evil” androgens (especially DHT) are the causes of men losing their hair and getting prostate cancer. So, the “solution” modern medicine proposes is “chemical castration” with drugs like finasteride, dutasteride, flutamide, bicalutamide, etc that render men impotent, … Read more Estrogen, not androgens, may be the cause of baldness

High-carb (65%-85%) diets therapeutic in diabetes

Another myth of mainstream medicine continues to (slowly) crumble. The myth of diabetes as the “sugar disease” may be still alive but the evidence against it is quickly mounting. Perhaps the only thing still preventing it from collapsing overnight is the large numbers of Paleo-diet supporters who currently dominate the blogosphere and serve as a … Read more High-carb (65%-85%) diets therapeutic in diabetes

Anti-histamines may prevent, treat melanoma

About 2 years ago I did a post discussing the hypothesis that melanoma is an endocrine tumor, similar to breast cancer – i.e. driven by estrogen. In fact, if one has the time to dig into the published literature on all known malignancies, it quickly becomes apparent that virtually all cancers can be classified as … Read more Anti-histamines may prevent, treat melanoma

Mad cow disease may be a mitochondrial/metabolic issue

Peat has mentioned the Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease (CJD) / BSE in several of his articles and interviews and has explained how environmental stress, estrogen, PUFA, ionizing radiation, etc can cause metabolic derangements resulting in the same brain damage so characteristic of this pathology. The public is more familiar with that pathology under the name of mad … Read more Mad cow disease may be a mitochondrial/metabolic issue

Aspirin protects mitochondria from inflammation and aging

The good news about aspirin just never seem to stop. While the anti-inflammatory effects of aspirin are well-known, mainstream medicine like to explain them away with the limited (and frankly primitive) mechanism of COX inhibition alone. If aspirin happens to achieve some other beneficial health effects, the doctors always try to either frame it in … Read more Aspirin protects mitochondria from inflammation and aging

My first scientific study: Anti-cancer effects of CortiNon+

After more than 9 months of dealing with scientific bureaucracy, publishing politics, carefully crafting wording to avoid “rocking the boat”, and of course the “minor” issues of funding a study with personal income, I am pleased to present the two publications below (one of them co-authored by me). Namely, the results of both an in-vitro … Read more My first scientific study: Anti-cancer effects of CortiNon+

Blocking serotonin may treat allergies and inflammatory diseases

The bad news for serotonin (5-HT) just keeps accumulating. Aside from its well-known (outside of medical office, of course) effects on causing pretty much any mental illness defined in DSM V, as well as fibrosis in any organ/tissue unfortunate enough to be exposed to 5-HT now we can add infectious disease, allergies and inflammatory diseases. … Read more Blocking serotonin may treat allergies and inflammatory diseases

Raising NAD levels may be therapeutic for COVID-19

A rather timely study, which demonstrates once again the crucial role energy plays even in “non-metabolic” diseases such as viral infections. At this point, even mainstream medicine admits that every function of the organism requires energy, so it would be plausible to expect an organism with higher energy reserves to be better able to defend … Read more Raising NAD levels may be therapeutic for COVID-19

SSRI drugs, not depression, destroy empathy

Yet another medical myth gets busted today. A common dogma in psychiatry is that one of the core symptoms of patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) is lack of empathy. In other words, while such patients are perfectly in tune with their own suffering and negative emotions, they are indifferent (and sometimes even pleased) at … Read more SSRI drugs, not depression, destroy empathy

It is a “folly” to claim that DNA is the main blueprint for life

Finally, some common sense coming out of the bastion of “institutionalized” science – genetics. After spending more than a century proclaiming that DNA is the core concept driving life, heredity, health and longevity medicine has now lost all hope of producing anything useful with all these idiotic assumptions. Thankfully, the genome-centric view never fully conquered … Read more It is a “folly” to claim that DNA is the main blueprint for life
