Cancer.. where to look for clues

I’ve been interested in cancer for quite a while. Even before I got affected, the complexity and the link with metabolism caught my attention. Despite digging up all the details of how cancer develops and works, I somehow never could find a distinct feature of a cancer cell. I could not find a single featureContinue reading “Cancer.. where to look for clues”

The curious case of macrophages and LDL cholesterol uptake in the pathology of atherosclerosis

Recently I wrote an article exploring what could be at the root cause of atherosclerosis. After the publication a comment pointed to the macrophage and cholesterol not being discussed. I didn’t do this because the root cause brought me to a point before macrophage and LDL-cholesterol comes into the picture. But it got me thinking…Continue reading “The curious case of macrophages and LDL cholesterol uptake in the pathology of atherosclerosis”

The cause of atherosclerosis is unknown… or is it?

Medical establishment considers a causal role for cholesterol. There has been a great deal of effort put into lowering cholesterol without significant effect on curing and preventing the disease. How come the failure is so big? Is it really THE cause? I’m especially concerned because my LDL level is >300mg/dL It turns out that theContinue reading “The cause of atherosclerosis is unknown… or is it?”

Why are mice bad at ketogenesis?

Previously I collected different studies to see how the mice perform on ketogenesis. Despite having a diet that often consists of >90% fat they produce disappointingly low BHB levels. Without thinking much about it I just assumed they are bad at fat metabolism biased by thinking they are typical high carb eating animals so theyContinue reading “Why are mice bad at ketogenesis?”

The case for fat adaptation in endurance

– Pointing out the obvious – It is pretty obvious by now in sports is that if the body requires something then you need to give that in order to enhance performance. Be it vitamines, minerals, energy… whatever it needs to produce that wattage, make sure it doesn’t fall short to sustain the performance. ExceptContinue reading “The case for fat adaptation in endurance”

HyProCICO – The theory behind obesity

Why a theory behind obesity? Isn’t it just CICO? I’ll use a simple analogy. You find a little puddle of water so you start mopping it up but then it comes back so you do some more mopping. The puddle of water keeps coming back and bigger if you don’t do any mopping so peopleContinue reading “HyProCICO – The theory behind obesity”

Vitamin D and immune system

I won’t know until I have antigen testing done but I’m fairly sure I was infected with the SARS-COV-v2 aka COVID-19 at the starting of March. Last year I was also diagnosed with lymphoma. The connection between the 2 is that the lymphatic system is involved in the defense against infectious pathogens. If you haveContinue reading “Vitamin D and immune system”

Fructose, the really bad guy

I came across a couple of resources and started to appreciate how different fructose is from glucose. In the low carb community, carbohydrates are obviously avoided or at least high amounts of it as they are generally considered bad. I support this approach but when we zoom in on fructose we notice that it isContinue reading “Fructose, the really bad guy”
