Estrogen may be the cause of “estrogen-negative” breast cancer

IMO, one of the biggest medical frauds so far is the idea that androgens (especially DHT) cause and promote prostate cancer. We now have an abundance of evidence (posted on this blog) that it is instead deficiency of androgens and/or excess of estrogens that initiates and drives the progression of prostate cancer. When chemical castration … Read more Estrogen may be the cause of “estrogen-negative” breast cancer

Melanoma defined by increased fatty acid synthesis and unsaturation

Yet another study implicating dysregulated fatty acid, instead of glucose, metabolism in cancer cells. Namely, the expression and activity of the enzyme fatty acid synthase (FASN) is increased in melanoma cells. Another interesting finding of the study is the increased unsaturation of the accumulated fats inside the tumor. The FASN enzyme synthesizes palmitic acid (PA) … Read more Melanoma defined by increased fatty acid synthesis and unsaturation

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 few great studies 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 … 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
