Stress causes/exacerbates allergies, pregnenolone/progesterone therapeutic

Yet another studies demonstrating the “controversial” link between stress and a condition doctors insist has nothing to do with stress or hormones in general. This time the culprit is CRF/CRH, which is the initial step in the “stress” cascade and is now known to be implicated in conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS), Alzheimer, depression … Read more

Estrogen can both cause and exacerbate Lupus

A quick post as a response to a recent argument I had over email with an endocrinologist who follows me on Twitter. His claim was that the causes of Lupus are currently unknown but are likely “multifactorial” and me ascribing such causes to “isolated peculiarities” such as endotoxin (LPS) or estrogen is unwarranted. The fact … Read more

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 directly causes polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

The worldwide rates of PCOS are skyrocketing, and have more than doubled over the last 10 years. Currently, about 12% of women in child-bearing age living in “developed” countries have PCOS and as a result struggle with infertility, diabetes, CVD, acne, bone issues, and even cancer. The fact that infertility is almost always present in … Read more

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

Blocking serotonin treats fatty liver disease (NAFLD / NASH)

The bad news for serotonin just keeps on coming. Just minutes ago I posted about serotonin turning people into violent criminals, and being the actual cause of depression instead of its cure (as FDA and Big Pharma would have you believe). Now, the study below adds another pathology that is caused by serotonin – the … Read more

Estrogen, not androgens, may be the cause of baldness

A quick post about a study calling into question yet another dogma in medicine – i.e. that the “evil” androgens (especially DHT) are the causes of men losing their hair and getting prostate cancer. So, the “solution” modern medicine proposes is “chemical castration” with drugs like finasteride, dutasteride, flutamide, bicalutamide, etc that render men impotent, … Read more

Blocking serotonin may treat allergies and inflammatory diseases

The bad news for serotonin (5-HT) just keeps accumulating. Aside from its well-known (outside of medical office, of course) effects on causing pretty much any mental illness defined in DSM V, as well as fibrosis in any organ/tissue unfortunate enough to be exposed to 5-HT now we can add infectious disease, allergies and inflammatory diseases. … Read more

Alzheimer Disease (AD) linked to PUFA accumulation in brain

So much for the “beneficial” effects of PUFA. What makes this study particularly interesting is that it calls into question a favorite defensive maneuver of clinical nutritionists. Namely, when challenged about the known inflammatory effects of omega-6 fatty acids, most medical professionals make a desperate claim that omega-3 fatty acids are actually protective and we … Read more
