High blood PUFA “a specific feature of severe COVID-19 pneumonia”

The evidence for PUFA being a crucial pathological factor in yet another disease is probably not surprising to my readers. The reason I like this study is that since COVID-19 is still (unfortunately) the main topic of the day in most Western countries, a study discussing PUFA in a COVID-19 context may get a lot … Read more

Low testosterone (T) and/or high estrogen/T ratio predict COVID-19 mortality

So, there we have it – yet another shameless lie exposed. After claiming completely evidence-free since the beginning of 2020 that high androgen levels are detrimental to males when it comes to COVID-19, mainstream medicine now gets to see its lies/incompetence exposed. Those shameless lies become even more egregious considering the abominable clinical trials with … Read more

Aspirin reduces symptom severity, COVID-19 mortality by half

Another great result for aspirin, which I suspect will not see much mainstream media publicity and will probably get censored the moment it hits my Twitter feed:-) Be that as it may, at this point the evidence for available successful/effective treatments for COVID-19 becomes too big to ignore, which of course invalidates the legal rationale … Read more

Endotoxin (LPS) may be the cause of fatal lung damage in COVID-19

Yet another study, which demonstrates that there is virtually no disease (acute of chronic, infections or not) where the infamous LPS does not play a causative role. As it turns out, the often fatal inflammatory reaction (cytokine storm) that usually kills patients with COVID-19 in ICU, is driven by endotoxin through activation of its TLR4 … Read more

Nine out of ten COVID-19 deaths may be due to vitamin D deficiency

A remarkable claim in this study, but not really surprising to people who have been studying the vitamin D effects on the immune system. While the study was observational, as the authors explain, the correlation between vitamin D insufficiency and COVID-19 mortality was so high that the authors do not think any other explanation is … Read more

Cortisol may drive COVID-19 mortality

The reason I decided to do a post on this study is that over the last several months, various public health authority bodies around the world have adopted “treatment protocols” for COVID-19 hospitalized patients, and virtually all such protocols contain a potent synthetic glucocorticoid such as dexamethasone. If the findings of the study below are … Read more

Endotoxin behind the mortality of Black Death and 1918 Flu pandemics

As many of my readers know, many/most people dying from COVID-19 develop either sepsis and/or respiratory failure. Endotoxin (LPS) is now a known cause behind both of these conditions, as a virus by itself has no known mechanism of causing a cytokine storm. As much as I revile the term “scientific consensus”, in this case … Read more

Obesity “paradox” strikes again – protection against COVID-19

I suspect this one will not go down will with the “lean is always good” crowd, which consists predominantly of members of the medical profession. Aside from all the health risks of obesity for pretty much any chronic disease, the news over the last 6 months have been replete with warning from all kinds of … 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

Calorie restriction (CR) increases cancer rates by more than 60%

The title says it all, so I won’t comment much on this other than to say that yet another myth propagated by mainstream medicine seems little more than wishful thinking. Namely, that calorie restriction (CR) will make you healthier. The official story on CR is not yet that it would make us live longer but … Read more
