Arginine / glutamine depletion may treat cancer by blocking the Warburg “Effect”

As my readers have noticed, I started putting quotes around the “effect” part of the infamous observation made by Otto Warburg himself. Over the last 3-4 years, even mainstream medicine has started to publish studies acknowledging that the “effect” is very much a cause as well. In other words, acidosis is not benign and is … Read more Arginine / glutamine depletion may treat cancer by blocking the Warburg “Effect”

Fish feel pain just like other animals and humans

Yet another piece of evidence that there is no such thing as a “lower animal” and pretty much anything with consciousness experiences pain much the same way we do. Yet despite these advances in our understanding of how similar we are to any other living creature, we still have surgeons performing surgery on babies without … Read more Fish feel pain just like other animals and humans

Poverty makes people dumb and prematurely old

A common debate in public policy is whether people slide into poverty because they are stupid or being poor makes people stupid and unable to cope with life. The study below adds some evidence to the latter claim and found that extended poverty (20 years or longer) exposure also causes premature aging. Perhaps one of … Read more Poverty makes people dumb and prematurely old

Energy deficiency due to stress causes anxiety, panic disorders, and subbordination

This is a great study on so many levels. First, it directly demonstrates that chronic stress leads to mitochondrial dysfunction and reduced oxidative phosphorylation. Second, it demonstrates that glucocorticoids (cortisol) are a direct cause of this energy production downregulation. Third, it demonstrates a direct parallel between animal models and human mood/mental disorders by comparing the … Read more Energy deficiency due to stress causes anxiety, panic disorders, and subbordination

Aspirin may protect lungs from air pollution

It seems that there is nothing mighty aspirin cannot do. Just recently, I posted about its ability to treat (and, more importantly, potentially have curative effect) erectile dysfunction (ED) at least as effectively as established drugs such as Viagra, Levitra, Cialis, etc. yet with much fewer side effects. Aspirin as effective as Viagra for ED, … Read more Aspirin may protect lungs from air pollution

DHT may treat prostate cancer, estrogen (E2) strongly promotes it

As I have posted many times over the last 4-5 years and discussed numerous times on Danny Roddy’s podcasts, the so-called “androgen hypothesis” (as in androgens being a cause) of prostate cancer appears to be little more than untenable conjectures often combined with outright fraud. What’s worse, millions of men are not only being chemically … Read more DHT may treat prostate cancer, estrogen (E2) strongly promotes it

Cholesterol and saturated fat are anabolic; PUFA/MUFA akin to chemical castration

A pair of interesting study and a commentary in the highly respected Journals of Gerontology. Namely, higher cholesterol intake is associated with much higher lean muscle mass accrual as a result of weight lifting. Interestingly, higher protein intake was not. Even more interestingly, and much to the chagrin of the medical industry, the increased dietary … Read more Cholesterol and saturated fat are anabolic; PUFA/MUFA akin to chemical castration

Oral free/base (unesterified) testosterone is more effective and safer than synthetic AAS

A number of my blog readers contacted me over the last 2 weeks and urged me to write this post in response to the recent FDA approval of the first oral testosterone (T) product in the USA. The approved product will contain the testosterone ester undecanoateĀ in the form of tablets. https://www.fda.gov/news-events/press-announcements/fda-approves-new-oral-testosterone-capsule-treatment-men-certain-forms-hypogonadism Well here is my … Read more Oral free/base (unesterified) testosterone is more effective and safer than synthetic AAS

Rats play hide-and-seek for the fun of it, just like humans

Slowly but surely, the foundations of the “pathological science” – initiated and patronized by corporations like GE – are crumbling. One of the tenets of this “science” is the “false” human tendency for anthropomorphism – i.e. ascribing human qualities, abilities, and behaviors to “primitive” animals. The famed linguist Noam Chomsky is another known critique of … Read more Rats play hide-and-seek for the fun of it, just like humans

Vitamin E restores cardiac health after heart attack

A great study that gives vitamin E a much deserved exposure in mainstream media. A few years ago, vitamin E was lambasted by the press for failing to prevent prostate cancer and heart attacks. Yet, upon a more careful look, it quickly becomes evident that those trials were handicapped from the start in a way … Read more Vitamin E restores cardiac health after heart attack
