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 / Progesterone / aspirin treat, cortisol ineffective, PUFA promotes prostate cancer

A great study, albeit in-vitro, that once again throws into doubt the entire hypothesis behind prostate cancer. First, it proves the key role of PUFA in the genesis and progression of prostate cancer by demonstrating that inhibitors of the COX enzyme (responsible for synthesizing prostaglandins from PUFA) are therapeutic even when used as a monotherapy. … 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

PUFA increases risk of all cancers, especially prostate

The bad news for PUFA just keep on coming. There seems to be no health pathology that PUFA does not promote, even indirectly. The study below demonstrates that BOTH omega-3 and omega-6 increase risk of ANY cancer and death from it, but specifically the risk of aggressive prostate cancer. It is mind boggling that in … Read more

DHT may treat prostate cancer, estrogen (E2) strongly promotes it

As I have posted many times over the last 4-5 years and discussed numerous times on Danny Roddy’s podcasts, the so-called “androgen hypothesis” (as in androgens being a cause) of prostate cancer appears to be little more than untenable conjectures often combined with outright fraud. What’s worse, millions of men are not only being chemically … Read more

Drostanolone (a DHT isomer) may treat prostate cancer

The bad news for the DHT-driven theory of prostate cancer just keep piling on. There have been at least 3 human trials in the last 5 years demonstrating that the direct injection of testosterone (T) into the prostate can stop advanced, inoperable prostate cancer. Instead of admitting what is quite obvious at this point – … Read more
