Blocking androgens causes inflammation and prostate disease/cancer

Yet another study striking directly the incredibly corrupt theory known as the “androgen hypothesis” – i.e. that androgens are the cause of many of the issues aging males experience, especially prostate enlargement (BPH) and/or prostate cancer. For almost a century now, the so-called standard of care “treatment” has been androgen deprivation therapy. Originally done through … Read more

Prostate levels of androgens/DHT drastically lower in prostate cancer patients

Yet another study, which raises serious doubts about the so-called “androgen hypothesis” of prostate cancer (PC). The study found that androgen levels, and especially DHT, are drastically (90%+) lower in PC than in people with benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). In fact, 1/3 of the PC patients included in the study had undetectable DHT levels in … Read more

DHT is negatively associated with death from prostate cancer

Just a quick study that, despite being epidemiological, raises serious questions about the validity of the “androgen-driven” hypothesis of prostate cancer. If the assumption is that DHT is the primary driver of prostate cancer it is hard to come up with any plausible explanation of how the elevated levels of DHT in this study were … Read more

DHT may be vital for the morphogenesis of organism(s)

As many of my readers know, the potent androgen DHT is one of the most vilified endogenous substances produced by the human body, second only to cholesterol. Aside from verbal vitriol published in mainstream scientific journals, this attitude of medicine towards DHT can also be estimated from the number of prescriptions for 5-alpha-reductase (5-AR) inhibitors … Read more

Lowering DHT synthesis causes severe hypothyroidism, despite higher T levels

Just a quick post in regards to one of the most controversial steroids out there – dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Mainstream medicine has vilified this steroid for decades and has blamed a host of male and female pathologies on it – i.e. baldness, prostate enlragement (BPH), prostate cancer (PC), PCOS, diabetes, obesity, dementia, osteoporosis, etc. One of … Read more
