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

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

New science blooms after “stars” die

As the article aptly quotes Max Planck, the running joke in physics for the last 100+ years has always been that science advances “one funeral at a time”. However, up until the study below came out this informal statement/knowledge was viewed as little more than the gripe of cynical, disillusioned, overworked post-docs. Shockingly, it appears … Read more

The brain can be revived hours after death, and without a body

I mentioned the idea of “suspended animation” on several of Danny Roddy’s podcasts and posted in a few threads that rat brains have been kept alive for days during experiments conducted in the early 1990s. These experiments severely challenge our idea of what it means to be “dead” and suggest there is indeed … Read more
