Hypoxia, nutrient deficiency rapidly rewires cells for cancer metabolism

One of the earliest observations of Otto Warburg when he studied cancer was that anything that interferes with oxygen supply to the cell effectively caused the cell to become “cancerous”. In other words, he opined that cancer was essentially an adaptation to a lack of oxygen, not a mutant gory monstrosity as the medical industry … Read more Hypoxia, nutrient deficiency rapidly rewires cells for cancer metabolism

Aging likely caused by decreased respiration / metabolism, not genetic mutations

It looks like after a century of utter idiotism in biology and medicine, those two disciplines may finally be getting on the right course. Despite the fact that the “rate of living” theory is still the dominant theory of aging in the halls of academia, a new generation of scientists is emerging that is not … Read more Aging likely caused by decreased respiration / metabolism, not genetic mutations

Dietary niacinamide (B3) deficiency may be a cause of schizophrenia

As many of my readers know, the link between niacinamide and schizophrenia dates back at least the 1950s and possibly much earlier. The late Abram Hoffer, one of the founders of the orthomolecular approach, was convinced that stress was a huge factor in mental illness and ran several successful trials with high dose niacin/niacinamide as … Read more Dietary niacinamide (B3) deficiency may be a cause of schizophrenia

Lack of light exposure may be the main cause of the myopia boom

As the study says, there has been a drastic increase in myopia cases over the last century. Early research pointed at excessive indoor book reading and studying as a cause of the epidemic. Unsurprisingly, these initial claims were quickly drowned by fake research denying that such a link exists. Modern society depends for its survival … Read more Lack of light exposure may be the main cause of the myopia boom

Vitamin D deficiency can cause heart failure

As many readers know, there is an epidemic of vitamin D deficiency. It is of worldwide proportions, but is visible mainly in “developed” countries in the Western world. The official stance of mainstream medicine is that while vitamin D deficiency is undesirable, it does not really have much clinical relevance except for older people at … Read more Vitamin D deficiency can cause heart failure

Progesterone can prevent recurrent miscarriages

I am only posting this because this is yet another mysterious condition for which officially there is no cure. As a result, all kinds of absurd explanations are given including “genetic incompatibility” of partners, mental disorders, “addiction” and/or substance abuse, etc. As it turns out, it may be simply a progesterone deficiency, and giving those … Read more Progesterone can prevent recurrent miscarriages

Study links stroke to vitamin B1 deficiency

The study was observational but I am inclined to see a causative role of the deficiency for stroke. My inclination stems from the thousands of intervention studies with vitamin B1 to treat a host of neurological issues including accelerating recovery from stroke. In addition, chronic alcoholics in withdrawal are routinely given vitamin B1 in hospitals … Read more Study links stroke to vitamin B1 deficiency

Allopregnanolone deficiency during pregnancy causes autism

Yet another study that links prenatal stress with the offspring developing autism. The rates of autism have been steadily rising over the last 3 decades but the medical profession claims this is simply due to better diagnostic methods. The fact that the health of general population, and especially young women of child-bearing age, is declining … Read more Allopregnanolone deficiency during pregnancy causes autism
