Achilles heel of cancer discovered – its lack of CO2

Several years ago I posted about a study demonstrating that an Achilles heel of cancer had been found – i.e. its addiction to fat (not glucose, as doctors and media continue to mindlessly parrot). https://www.eurekalert.org/news-releases/805681 As my readers know from my other posts and various podcasts, excessive fatty acid oxidation (FAO) translates into lower CO2 … Read more

Human study – vitamin B1 safe & effective for preventing & treating Alzheimer Disease (AD)

A remarkable study, that for some reason is not being covered by mainstream media. Considering 99% of the clinical trials for AD since 2000 have completely failed, this study should be front-page news for most mainstream outlets. I suspect mainstream media, being literally owned by the same interests that own Big Pharma, finds it too … Read more

Vitamin B1 can reverse heart damage/failure caused by alcoholism

It has been known … Read more

Alcohol brain damage due to iron accumulation; vitamin B1 to the rescue

Chronic alcohol abuse is highly detrimental to health and especially to the brain. Alcohol puts the body in a reductive state and depletes vitamin B1 (thiamine) stores. If the B1 deficiency becomes severe enough it manifests through what is clinically known as Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (WKS), characterized by dementia and other severe neurological symptoms. It is … Read more

Forcing the heart to burn glucose instead of fat may cure heart failure

One of the blockbuster studies I have seen over the last 12 months. It reads as if written by Peat himself and discusses tissue regeneration, Randle cycle, dietary control of metabolism, etc. AFAIK this is the first study brave enough to demonstrate that simply switching fuel types in an organism can have profound structural effects, … Read more

Study links stroke to vitamin B1 deficiency

The study was observational but I am inclined to see a causative role of the deficiency for stroke. My inclination stems from the thousands of intervention studies with vitamin B1 to treat a host of neurological issues including accelerating recovery from stroke. In addition, chronic alcoholics in withdrawal are routinely given vitamin B1 in hospitals … Read more
