Loss of mitochondrial function (OXPHOS) induces de-differentiation (cancer)

The study only focuses on the lymphatic system and its cells, but the principle is general and has been observed in other organ/tissue cells. The most obvious example is cancer – no matter which organ it occurs in, the tumor is composed of de-differentiated cells not unlike the stem cells from which all other tissues/organs … Read more

High PTH, low vitamin D implicated in bipolar disorder (BD)

A great study highlighting once again the importance of calcium, vitamin D and especially the pro-inflammatory parathyroid hormone (PTH) for mental health. While there are many studies (both observational and intervention ones) examining the role of vitamin D in mental health, this is one of the very few looking into the role of PTH. It … Read more

Working too hard / long can kill you

Another study directly implicating work stress in not only chronic, degenerative conditions but also death directly. Apparently, as corrupt/inept as W.H.O is, the evidence linking hard work with early death is too strong even for them to ignore. Btw, what the study used as definition for “hard” and/or “long” work would come as a surprise … Read more

Mitochondrial dysfunction may be the cause of anemia

Despite anemia being a pretty common condition, I still don’t think medicine has a good idea what causes anemia (putting aside the more obvious reasons such as chronic bleeding and dietary iron deficiency). In one of the KMUD interviews Peat opined that in his opinion true¬† iron deficiency anemias were rare and the anemias characterized … Read more

Muscle weakness / wasting linked to poor mitochondrial function

A study that once again illustrates the central principle of bioenergetics – structure and function cannot be separated. They are interdependent at every level. In this specific case, the “structural” pathology is muscle weakness and wasting (sarcopenia, cachexia, etc). Most doctors, when evaluating such condition, will look for structural problems such as genetic mutations, trauma, … Read more

Blocking the endotoxin receptor (TLR4) may prevent / treat hearing loss

I did a post a few months ago on the connection between tinnitus and serotonin – i.e. using anti-serotonin drugs may treat tinnitus. Since tinnitus is almost always a precursor state to hearing loss (and eventually deafness), the two conditions obviously go hand-in-hand and are likely caused by the same agent (e.g. serotonin). Since more … Read more

Upregulated serotonin synthesis may be a biomarker for breast cancer

Once again, the available evidence contradicts the popular myth promoted by public health agencies that serotonin is the “happiness hormone”. One only needs to talk to a person on serotonergic (SSRI) drugs for a few minutes to realize just how “happy” those people are as a result of their medication. The study below now exposes … Read more

Vitamin B6, lowering stress, may treat schizophrenia

Both human and animal studies. The human study was with pyridoxamine – a vitamin B6 isomer declared by FDA to be a “prescription drug” and as such banned for OTC sale in USA while still being widely available in most other countries. That FDA ruling is pointless due to the fact that pyridoxamine is NOT … Read more

DHEA causes fat-loss and improved glucose metabolism in humans

Another study corroborating the role of DHEA as one of the “youth” hormones. A recent study already demonstrated that DHEA can reverse aging of the human immune system, which usually goes hand in hand with lower cortisol and improved metabolism. The proven anti-cortisol effects of DHEA are probably the reason behind its effects on decreasing … Read more

Depression fades away when serotonin levels drop

A very, very inconvenient study for mainstream medicine and its Big Pharma goons. The so-called “serotonin hypothesis” is slowly crumbling and the results from the most recent studies are so unequivocal that the fraud about serotonin as the “happiness hormone” may go down in history as one of the most open and grotesque examples of … Read more
