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

Daily aspirin reduces by 37% risk of fatty liver progressing into cirrhosis

Another great study about aspirin. What I particularly like about this study is that one of the authors is calling aspirin “a promising anti-fibrotic strategy for NAFLD”. This is the first time I have heard a doctor refer to aspirin as anti-fibrotic chemical. Peat mentioned aspirin as one of the most protective chemicals for liver … Read more Daily aspirin reduces by 37% risk of fatty liver progressing into cirrhosis
