Exposure to fluoride actually damages teeth, even at low concentrations

Most adults are familiar with the much-publicized (and advertised) claims of public health authorities about the purported benefits of fluoride exposure for dental health. The official story is that by adding fluoride to tap water, people’s teeth are exposed to “low” concentration of fluoride, which has a strengthening effect on the enamel and makes it … Read more

Some ALS cases may be cured by vitamin B2 (riboflavin)

A rather fascinating case study/report, which, despite its misleading and convoluted description, suggests yet again that motor neuron diseases such as Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) are nothing but severe mitochondrial/energetic dysfunction that can often be remediated quite easily. This is not at all an exaggeration – several studies I posted about (see below) in the … Read more

Energy deficiency due to stress causes anxiety, panic disorders, and subbordination

This is a great study on so many levels. First, it directly demonstrates that chronic stress leads to mitochondrial dysfunction and reduced oxidative phosphorylation. Second, it demonstrates that glucocorticoids (cortisol) are a direct cause of this energy production downregulation. Third, it demonstrates a direct parallel between animal models and human mood/mental disorders by comparing the … Read more

Supplementation with (long chain) saturated fats protects liver from alcohol

As many of my readers already know, there are a number of human studies, going back to at least the 1960s, demonstrating that supplementation with saturated fats (SFA) protects the liver from damage induced by alcohol. I fact, supplementation with SFA not only prevents alcohol-induced liver damage but actually fully reverses the fibrosis/cirrhosis induced by … Read more

Osteoporosis is caused by mitochondrial dysfunction, driven by nitric oxide (NO)

Let’s repeat the mantra one more time – structure and function cannot be separated, they are interdependent at every level of reality/life. As such, it is little surprise (to us) that a structural disorder like osteoporosis may be caused by a deficiency in energy production. Yet, despite being a sacrilege to utter this in a … Read more
