Simply inhaling endotoxin (LPS) may cause Parkinson Disease (PD)

The role of endotoxin (LPS) in neurodegenerative diseases is becoming more and more recognized, despite claims by mainstream medicine that LPS only poses danger to people with severely compromised livers. However, even scientists that are aware of the causative role of LPS in those diseases focus mostly on the absorption of LPS from colon into … Read more Simply inhaling endotoxin (LPS) may cause Parkinson Disease (PD)

Many “inert” additives in drugs and food are actually active and toxic

In addition to the recent legal/health fiascoes with talc and titanium dioxide we now have evidence that hundreds of other “inert” additives in commercial/pharma drugs (and food too) are not at all inert and in fact affect multiple physiological pathways, often in a strongly detrimental manner. http://excipients.ucsf.bkslab.org/ https://science.sciencemag.org/content/369/6502/403 https://www.ucsf.edu/news/2020/07/418146/some-inert-drug-ingredients-may-be-biologically-active “…Some supposedly inert ingredients in common … Read more Many “inert” additives in drugs and food are actually active and toxic

Progesterone – not a sex hormone, but a systemic health hormone

An older study, but some great information in there. Not only does it call attention to the fallacy of progesterone being nothing more than a “sex” hormone, but it also warns about the fallacy of equating the synthetic progestins with bioidentical progesterone. At least, when it comes to vascular/heart/muscle effects. Over the last 15 years … Read more Progesterone – not a sex hormone, but a systemic health hormone

Childhood stress / deprivation leads to early puberty / aging

The evidence that adult health problems have their roots in childhood or even prenatally continues to accumulate. The study below demonstrates that children who have experienced violence, trauma, deprivation or have had generally stressful childhoods not only enter puberty much earlier but are on average several years older (biologically) than their peers. While being several … Read more Childhood stress / deprivation leads to early puberty / aging

Declining vision from aging can be restored by staring at red light

The rates of cataracts, glaucoma, and other vision problems continue to rise and the increasingly aging world population will likely see this problem worsen in the coming years/decades. As such, therapeutic interventions that improve vision are desperately needed. The study below now adds declining vision to the list of problems now known to be caused … Read more Declining vision from aging can be restored by staring at red light

Lab animals kept under stressful conditions, thus affecting study results

Several months ago, I did a post on just how stressful the IP administration method is for lab animals. That method is considered the de-facto standard for steroid studies, yet it appears it is so stressful that it can easily produce invalid results due to the its strong effects on the HPA axis and overall … Read more Lab animals kept under stressful conditions, thus affecting study results
