Blocking cortisol may treat even terminal cancers

The metabolic causes of cancer are slowly starting to be recognized, and especially the role of cortisol. I recently did a post on the role of cortisol in triple-negative breast cancer and the protective effects of androgens such as DHT. Now, mainstream medicine does not deny that androgens have therapeutic role in breast cancer (BC) … Read more Blocking cortisol may treat even terminal cancers

Simple metabolic change sufficient to turn “normal” cells into “cancer”

Yet another study exposing the fraud/myth that somehow “cancer” cells are different and evil and as such the only hope for curing cancer is killing them before they kill their “host”. The central dogma of oncology is that genetic mutations happen first (and randomly so). Then, once a “cancerous” mutation happens the cell is fundamentally … Read more Simple metabolic change sufficient to turn “normal” cells into “cancer”

Cytokine storm in COVID-19 / sepsis due to “cancer metabolism” (Warburg Effect)

A great study illustrating the crucial effects of metabolism even in “non-metabolic” conditions like COVID-19. We already have evidence that increased PUFA peroxidation is one of the causes behind the (often lethal) cytokine storm in viral diseases, including COVID-19. However, the direct mechanism through which immune cells such as phagocytes “go berserk” and increase release … Read more Cytokine storm in COVID-19 / sepsis due to “cancer metabolism” (Warburg Effect)

Estrogen and histamine, not HPV, drive cervical cancer

A few months ago, I did a post about a study which made the bold claim that estrogen instead of HPV is the actual cause of the (often deadly) cervical cancer. According to that study, HPV infection is at best permissive and at worst simply an (largely innocent) bystander. A statement like this is absolute … Read more Estrogen and histamine, not HPV, drive cervical cancer

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

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+

“Anti-aging” hormone (hGH) may actually shorten life

The duo of hGH/IGF-1 does not need an introduction. Hardly a day passes without some ad on TV promoting the latest and greatest product that “naturally boosts” either hGH or IGF-1 levels. The two hormones have an almost perfect correlation – each one inducing the endogenous synthesis of the other. Clinics catering to the super … Read more “Anti-aging” hormone (hGH) may actually shorten life

PUFA increases risk of all cancers, especially prostate

The bad news for PUFA just keep on coming. There seems to be no health pathology that PUFA does not promote, even indirectly. The study below demonstrates that BOTH omega-3 and omega-6 increase risk of ANY cancer and death from it, but specifically the risk of aggressive prostate cancer. It is mind boggling that in … Read more PUFA increases risk of all cancers, especially prostate

PUFA is a cancer “sensitizer”

A neat study, which demonstrates that in addition to its direct carcinogenic effects, PUFA is also a cancer “sensitizer” – i.e. is triggers the development of cancer in the presence of less-than-healthy chemicals that are relatively harmless by themselves. This sensitizing role of PUFA seems to be well-known to the research community and applies to … Read more PUFA is a cancer “sensitizer”

PUFA increases risks of skin cancers

As the study says – not total fat but its composition in the diet is what drives (skin) cancer risk. And as expected, PUFA “shines” once again. What is particular good about this study is that it exposes both omega-6 and omega-3 as cancer-promoting. Omega-3 has been the defense of last resort for modern nutritional … Read more PUFA increases risks of skin cancers
