Cytokine storm in COVID-19 / sepsis due to “cancer metabolism” (Warburg Effect)

A great study 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 release … Read more Cytokine storm in COVID-19 / sepsis due to “cancer metabolism” (Warburg Effect)

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

ALS tied to increased fat oxidation (FAO), increasing glucose may treat it

I made a few posts in the past about ALS characterized by adrenal hyperactivity and suppressed gonadal function, as well as mitochondrial dysfunction and copper deficiency. Also, non-familial ALS is known to occurs 4-5 times more often in active/retired elite athletes. All of these findings strongly suggest ALS is linked to stress and dysregulated metabolism. … Read more ALS tied to increased fat oxidation (FAO), increasing glucose may treat it

Baking soda may treat cancer, metformin may cause it

As many readers know, using baking soda to treat cancer has been labelled as “quack medicine” by many mouthpieces of mainstream medicine, as well as by several “watchdog” groups. Here are some links “debunking” the usage of baking soda for cancer. https://sciencebasedmedicine.org/another-cancer-tragedy-in-the-making/ https://scienceblog.cancerresearchuk.org/2014/03/24/dont-believe-the-hype-10-persistent-cancer-myths-debunked/#fungus https://edzardernst.com/2017/02/this-must-be-the-most-sickening-cancer-scam-i-have-seen-for-a-while/ Some of the claims of the baking soda proponents are not … Read more Baking soda may treat cancer, metformin may cause it
