Why We Can’t Beat The Vegans To It

They Did It Again

The Game Changer movie is out and is sweeping through the minds of men of all ages! Yep, they will try the vegan diet because of the penis part of the movie. I am not going to talk about the penis story. It was the highlight of the movie in the eyes of all men for sure!

There is nothing better than to appeal to the ego when we want to sell a story (or an expensive car or purse or jewelry). Humans seem to live for being different from thy neighbors. While a designer purse or red convertible are likely to catch the eyes (not heart) of a young female beauty on the street, getting more and bigger erections (while sleeping and you have no clue about them) may be an equally provocative eye-catcher for men. I am not a man so just guessing here. Continue reading

Children in Ketosis: The Feared Fuel

PRESS RELEASE

I have written an article in Medium that I have completely forgotten about mentioning here. Bad girl… well, it is better later than never. Shortly after I published that article and it went viral, it was republished by Marika Sboros on her website with a beautiful header image that I love to look at. Whichever you prefer to read, just read it.

What’s All The Fuss About?

We often hear that glucose is the human primary fuel and ketones are the secondary (backup) fuel for those times when glucose is not available. But is that really true? Continue reading

Where is the Beef? The 6 Papers That Turned the World Up-Side-Down

About the News on “No Harm” from Red Meat

You have heard it by now. For sure. Several academic articles hit the press (below the belt) on October 1, 2019, published by the Annals of Internal Medicine:

Unprocessed Red Meat and Processed Meat Consumption: Dietary Guideline Recommendations From the Nutritional Recommendations” (here)

Patterns of Red and Processed Meat Consumption and Risk for Cardiometabolic and Cancer Outcomes: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Cohort Studies” (here)

Effect of Lower Versus Higher Red Meat Intake on Cardiometabolic and Cancer Outcomes: A Systematic Review of Randomized Trials” (here)

Health-Related Values and Preferences Regarding Meat Consumption: A Mixed-Methods Systematic Review” (here)

Red and Processed Meat Consumption and Risk for All-Cause Mortality and Cardiometabolic Outcomes: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Cohort Studies” (here)

Reduction of Red and Processed Meat Intake and Cancer Mortality and Incidence: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Cohort Studies” (here) Continue reading

Osteocalcin and Atherosclerosis

The Secret Cholesterol Theory

Completely accidentally I bumped into an article about osteocalcin, and it turned out to be something pretty important. My research about the fight-or-flight mechanism, which is associated with migraine, led me to this article. Those of you who follow me know that my research is in migraines and not with cholesterol. My understanding had been that when humans encounter danger or stress they respond with a “fight or flight” which is initiated by the central nervous system and stress hormones, such as adrenaline(1). According to this article this is not the case.

The initiation is performed by osteocalcin (defined and discusses below.) What’s osteocalcin’s connection to cholesterol? Actually, nothing directly but plenty indirectly, through calcium.  Atheroma is calcified (calcium filled) cholesterol forming atherosclerosis in all the wrong places, and a very negative condition. The sequence leading to it is as follows:

Stress => Osteocalcin = T2D, Atheroma, Calcium, CVD

Statin Lies

New Article is Revealing: Do Statins Really Work?

A new article, by one of UKs most prominent cardiologists, Dr. Aseem Malhotra, was just released. I also saved this article as a PDF, in case it mysteriously disappears, since in the past, articles, podcasts, and similar, have often been pulled by financially negatively impacted people when information like this was released. So in case the article ever disappears, you can find it here: Do statins really work_ Who benefits_ Who has the power to cover up the side effects_with my highlights–the darker the highlight, the more essential the information.

Do We Need to Reduce Cholesterol?

Yet One More Junk Paper in JAMA Internal Medicine

Will they EVER learn statistics?

The paper Association of Animal and Plant Protein Intake With All-Cause and Cause-Specific Mortality, an “original investigation” (whatever that means, since they just crunched numbers), published on the 26th of August–this paper is behind a paywall. Interestingly, a nearly identical paper with a nearly identical title, published in the same journal in 2016: Association of Animal and Plant Protein Intake With All-Cause and Cause-Specific Mortality, with the same outcome. And what is that outcome?

Animal Protein Causes Earlier Death

How Far Will They Go?

To The End!

Fighting for what science shows can harm your reputation, make you lose your job, and… who know how far they will go!  This the story of Maryanne Demasi, Ph.D., an investigative science journalists:

“I became the subject of attacks by those with vested interests. Secret documents revealed food industry giants initiated ‘active defence’ against me (and others) for challenging their marketing messages.

It manifested in social media attacks, industry-sponsored propaganda by so-called ‘experts’ paid to undermine my credibility, critics’ calls for my sacking, and vexatious complaints about my scientific integrity.

Eventually, our entire team was axed from the ABC. The TV executives who promised to support us, the same people who approved and applauded our programs, were now the ones walking us all out the door.”

As always, things must be understood in context. The context here is revealing that statins Continue reading

Can Potassium Harm You? One More Time!

PRESS RELEASE

Hot off the press! My latest article published on HormonesMatter with a ton of extremely important details on potassium.

This article is based on an email discussion I had with an emergency hospital cardiologist friend. It is written in a Q and A style with additional thoughts after each of the doctor’s responses. This article is a bit more medically challenging and revealing than what I wrote before on potassium.

Potassium is an essential but very dangerous mineral!

Comments are welcome, as always, and are moderated for appropriateness

Hypertensive 90-year Old Recovers on the LCHF Diet

An Unusual Testimonial

I receive lots of testimonials in my FB migraine groups. I usually post them on my migraine testimonials page, which, by now, sports several hundred (if not over a thousand) testimonials. However, I sometimes receive testimonials that are not about migraineurs successfully recovering and preventing their migraines, but about family members who are not migraineurs, but use my protocol anyway.

Here is what I received from one of my migraineurs, who placed her 90 years young mother on the Stanton Migraine Protocol® way of eating.

My mom’s 90. In April, when I joined protocol, she went off all grains and sugars; increased her salt, water, protein and animal fat; and now, three months later, she consumes only very small amounts of protocol-friendly fruits and vegetables.

She’s taken maximum doses of 2 hypertension meds for about 30 years. BP has been normal every time we’ve measured since 3 weeks into this WOE [way of eating]. We were able to cut one [medicine] in half and will hopefully be able to dc it soon. Really astonishing, yet logical.

Ketosis for Migraine?

PRESS RELEASE

My first article published on Medium yesterday. I have been quite skeptical about posting articles on Medium. Many of the articles I so far read are OK but most I read are provocative and not necessarily in a positive way.

Out to Make Money or to Challenge?
