Although the ‘60s were the heyday for biochemistry, there are still fundamental advances made all the time. In fact, researchers from Cornell discovered an important clue to how the cell regulates metabolism. They discovered that carbon dioxide increases the rate of...
The side effects of serotonin on blood pressure have been known for nearly a century. The word serotonin itself is a contraction of the words serum, tonic, and amine. It’s rather potent, and even more powerful than norepinephrine in raising blood...
A link between intelligence and goiter had been known since antiquity. But it wasn’t until the discovery of iodine inside the thyroid gland in 1896 that science started to understand goiter. In an iodine-deficient state, the thyroid swells-up in an attempt to filter more...
Iron performs an essential role in the body. As a transition metal, it has many electrons in its outer shell. And this property is necessary for life as we know it. If you remember your chemistry, you remember that atoms have electrons. These...
With all the talk about antioxidants since the 90s, researchers give relatively little attention to coffee. When people hear “antioxidant food,” they usually think of “fruit” or “wine.” We hear all about the health benefits antioxidants provide, but it's always when talking...
One of the common ways of treating prostate cancer today is chemical castration. But doctors don't call it that. They call it androgen deprivation therapy. Yeah, their way doesn't sound as bad as "castration," right? In this paradigm, doctors teach patients that testosterone...
In today's newsletter, we are going to look at prostate cancer outcomes. And we'll look at what it shows us we can do to lessen the likelihood of getting cancer or of having bad effects if we do get it. Our...
If your penis is not getting enough oxygen, then eventually you will have big problems. And this study shows that many men who have erectile dysfunction have low penis oxygen. In this newsletter, I want to discuss what it means, what...
Traditionally, medicine viewed teeth as inactive pieces of bone, incapable of regeneration. But it is simply not true. In response to injury, odontoblasts can create new dentin. Odontoblasts are specialized tooth cells responsible for dentin formation. This new dentin is called tertiary dentin to differentiate...
Sometimes the best studies come out of countries where you would not expect them. This is an extremely well-done study out of a veterinary school in India. It demonstrates extreme toxicity of the statin drugs. They took rats and separated them into groups. Then...
