Mass nervous breakdown: Millions of Americans on the brink as stress pandemic ravages society

Posted by:

As a doctor, I can tell you that stress has reached pandemic levels, though many still hold back from admitting it to themselves or their peers. Our normalcy bias prevents us from taking notice that tens of millions of people in Western countries are dropping like flies from illness, depression and self-destruction. I came across this article by David Kupelain on Americans’ health and agreed with some of the observations made about the dire ...

Lactobacillus GG and its potential role in tolerance development

Posted by:

I had the opportunity to listen to a talk given recently by Jon Vanderhoof, a pediatrician from the University of Nebraska. He was talking about the wonders and peculiarities of Lactobacillus GG and its role in digestive health.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG is a probiotic unlike any other because it has little “hairs”(pili) that helps it stick to the inner lining of the digestive system. It also acts as the good guy which promotes the proliferation ...

The Paleo Diet – A simple project proposal to alleviate human suffering

Posted by:

I predict that this simple and feasible project proposal which will alleviate a host of different modern ailments will be rejected by any mainstream health care system which relies heavily on Big Pharma’s budget and its status quo.

Summary

It is increasingly recognized that certain fundamental changes in diet and lifestyle that occurred after the Neolithic Revolution, and especially after the Industrial Revolution and the Modern Age, are too recent, on an evolutionary time scale, for ...

Methylglyoxal and the Ketogenic Diet – The Miraculous Compound that got Bad-Mouthed by Ignorance

Posted by:

I came across this information by reading an argument against a ketogenic diet. I decided to do some further research and what I found was astonishing to say the least. Those who are doing some ketogenic badmouthing through this argument are clearly shooting themselves in the foot since it is among the most jaw dropping information on the anti-cancer and anti-viral potential of a ketogenic diet that I have come across. As it happens it has been very well documented ...

Lowering Cholesterol with Statin Drugs – Big Pharma’s Queen of Deception

Posted by:

The other day I received a message from a high school friend whom I remember to be brilliant, inspiring and creative. She was just a genius. Recently I learned that she also became a medical doctor and has worked in a public health care system treating elderly people ever since. She sent me a message over facebook frustrated because she found herself in the ridiculous situation of pointing out the obvious to Big Pharma reps and colleagues in a heated ...

A Scottish Terrier Miraculous Recovery from Bladder Cancer

Posted by:

According to this article from the Scottish Terrier Club of America, if you have never lost a Scottish Terrier to bladder cancer – or, more properly, Transitional Cell Carcinoma – consider yourself extremely lucky. Research has suggested that Scottish Terriers are 20 times more likely to get bladder cancer than other breeds and it usually occurs in older dogs (average age 11 years). Such a diagnosis can be devastating to dogs and their owners alike. So you ...

Ketogenic Diet – Protein and Carb Counter for Dummies

Posted by:

This is a “what you see is what you get” rough guide for those folks on a ketogenic diet and who are having trouble estimating their protein intake – which should be between 0.8 to 1.5  grams of protein per kg of ideal body weight per day. More than that will likely stimulate insulin way too much. Notice that the 1.5 gram upper limit is typically for those doing endurance exercise. The average person must stay between 0.8 and 1 ...

Fatty Liver and Foie Gras: When Humans Are Forced-Fed Sugar

Posted by:

Foie gras is a French gourmet delicacy. It is delicious and extremely fatty. Foie gras” translates to “fatty liver” in English and in order to make it, geese or ducks are forced-fed large amounts of a wet mash of corn. Their livers balloon up to about 6-10 times their normal size and are packed full of fat. This serves as a clear picture of the fattening effects of carbs and how it promotes a fatty deposition in the liver. It ...

On Viral “Junk” DNA, a DNA Enhancing Ketogenic Diet, and Cometary Kicks

Posted by:

“Junk” DNA includes a whole subset of names such as introns, retrotransposable elements, and non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs). In fact, ncRNAs are often located near genes known to be important to both stem cells and cancer, to serve as enhancer elements which promote their gene expression.[1]  Stem cells are the cells that have the potential to turn into lots of other cells. So this junk DNA can influence how stem cells specifically differentiate into multiple cell types.

In ...

Nicotine, the Insular Cortex and Empathy

Posted by:

A couple of very interesting papers have come to my attention recently. The first one was published very recently in Clinical Endocrinology where they found that those who quit smoking had a 6-fold increase risk for autoimmune thyroid problems. There seems to be a complex interaction between smoking and the immune system in that the authors of the paper were speculating that “transition from current to ex-smoker may lead ...
