SSRI drugs increase violent behavior and promote recidivism

Despite decades of animal research demonstrating how elevated serotonin in general, and SSRI drugs in particular, turn animals into homicidal, vicious creatures, (and are actually the cause of depression and not the cure for it) mainstream medicine continues to deny that such scary effects are possible in humans. Recent studies demonstrating loss of empathy in … Read more SSRI drugs increase violent behavior and promote recidivism

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 PUFA increases risk of all cancers, especially prostate

Nut consumption may cause diabetes even without obesity

Such are the findings of this intriguing study, and I suspect the authors probably “massaged” the data a bit in order to avoid getting their study rejected by the peer-review committee. Cases of diabetes II without the presence of obesity are extremely rare, so the finding that nut consumption robustly increases diabetes risk and blood … Read more Nut consumption may cause diabetes even without obesity

High levels of DHT may reduce diabetes risk

The title says it all, as the study is quite clear. DHT “…was most consistently associated with a lower level of insulin resistance and lower risk of incident diabetes” in the words of the study’s lead author. The current darling of “aging/obese male” treatments – testosterone (T) – was not associated with lower insulin resistance … Read more High levels of DHT may reduce diabetes risk

The inconvenient truth about cancer and mobile phones

This mainstream media article is one of the best reviews on the dangers of EMF exposure and it does a very good job of explaining why this “inconvenient truth” is not more widely known – i.e. deliberate and well-funded propaganda campaign by the wireless industry often involving direct bribing and even physical violence aimed at … Read more The inconvenient truth about cancer and mobile phones

Vegans and vegetarians have a higher risk of stroke

A good reminder that vegetables are not as benign, let alone as healthy, as your board-certified, PhD-boasting, marathon-running corporate nutritionist would have you believe. In fact, this is not the first study to seriously question the “eat mostly plants” mantra. Several other very large and well-controlled studies have found that a diet high in vegetables … Read more Vegans and vegetarians have a higher risk of stroke

Parents’ emotional trauma may change their children’s biology

Not a new idea, but the study is a nice summary of recent work in the area and demonstrates that the old gene-centric idea of inheritance is slowly being replaced by a much richer theory of how organisms interact with their environment and how they pass this information down to generations. It is a very … Read more Parents’ emotional trauma may change their children’s biology

Statins more than double the risk of diabetes compared to non-users

Yet another damning study on the toxic effects of drugs whose main effect (lowering cholesterol by blocking its synthesis) is already known to be harmful and has no evidence behind its claimed benefits. So, we can now add diabetes to the list of cancer, ALS, dementia, birth defects, osteoporosis, infertility, premature aging, mental health orders, … Read more Statins more than double the risk of diabetes compared to non-users

GWAS predicting height are bunk; same likely the case for disease-prediction

Another study calls into question the validity of genome-wide association studies (GWAS), at least when it comes to traits such as height. Height (together with IQ) was once hailed as one of the most genetically-sensitive traits and so-called polygenic scores were developed that were claimed to predict a person’s height within a fraction of a … Read more GWAS predicting height are bunk; same likely the case for disease-prediction

Aspirin actually decreases risk of bleeding in the brain

As many readers know, one of the scary stories Big Pharma tells about aspirin is that it increases the risk of bleeding in the GI tract or brain. As such aspirin has long been bashed as a possible cause of so-called hemorrhaging strokes. I posted two studies a few years ago demonstrating that aspirin, in … Read more Aspirin actually decreases risk of bleeding in the brain
