Even briefly elevated lactate is a “master” cause of chronic diseases

The title of the post actually does not do justice to how strongly the study authors word their statements in regards to lactate. The lead study author called lactate “a master regulator of carcinogenesis” (with “regulator” being a euphemism for “cause”, otherwise the study won’t get published), while the rest of the study goes to … Read more

Lactate is a key driver of diabetes/obesity, by promoting inflammation

A great study, demonstrating that in diabetes (just as in cancer) the so-called Warburg Effect (aerobic glycolysis) is as much a cause of those degenerative conditions as it is an effect of. The study below demonstrated that increased intracellular lactate results in robust increase in systemic release of inflammatory cytokines, resulting in aggravation of systemic … Read more

Reduced pyruvate and/or increased lactate drive heart failure

I just did a post on the role of reduced glucose metabolism, lower pyruvate/NAM/NAD and elevated lactate in the pathogenesis of glaucoma. Just minutes later, another study popped up in my newsfeed. Namely, a study that demonstrates the exact same metabolic disturbances as the main drivers of heart failure. The study below demonstrates that heart … Read more

Lactate is an oncometabolite (promotes cancer), no genes/mutations needed

It has now been more than 5 years since a seminal post/discussion on Reddit raised the question publicly of whether the dominant medical theory on cancer may actually be nothing but an elaborate fraud. Namely, a study that spurred the Reddit discussion demonstrated that that the so-called Warburg Effect is as much an effect as … Read more

(Brain) Cancer is a metabolic disease, can be treated by glutamine restriction

It seems that mainstream medicine is finally wisening up to the massacre they have been orchestrating for the last 100 years. Without much fanfare or apologies, medicine is now quietly changing its story on cancer, hoping the public won’t notice as long as a cure is finally found. The study below is yet another one … Read more

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
