Antibiotics Side Effects on the Mitochondria

Science is just beginning to understand how important your mitochondria are to warding off the diseases of aging. And, as usual, mainstream medicine is lagging way behind. Along with your telomeres, the cellular time keepers at the ends of your chromosomes, your mitochondria are another key component of the anti-aging equation. You see, these tiny organelles in your cells are the power plants that turn fuel into energy for your body. Healthy mitochondria keep you young and energetic.  Research shows that damaged mitochondria can lead to: Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder; Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease; Epilepsy, migraines, and nerve pain; Loss of muscle control and balance; Strokes, heart disease, and coronary artery disease; Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia; Blindness; Diabetes; Hepatitis C and cirrhosis.1 Now new research reveals that antibiotics smother your mitochondria. I’ve been warning about the side effects of antibiotics for years. Yes, they’ve saved many lives. But rampant overuse of these drugs has left us with a slew of health problems. Antibiotic Side Effects on The Gut Antibiotics destroy the good bacteria that make up your gut’s flora. They impact digestion, the immune system, and the endocrine system. Now a study in the journal, Cell Reports, has raised the alarm about tetracyclines.2 These drugs are used for bacterial infections. They treat urinary tract infections, acne, malaria, Lyme disease, r...

Abstract AimsTo identify gestational diabetes mellitus exposure‐associated DNA methylation changes and assess whether such changes are also associated with adiposity‐related outcomes. MethodsWe performed an epigenome‐wide association analysis, using Illumina 450k methylation arrays, on whole blood collected, on average, at 10.5 years of age from 81 gestational diabetes‐exposed and 81 unexposed offspring enrolled in the EPOCH (Exploring Perinatal Outcomes in Children) study, and on the cord blood of 31 gestational diabetes‐exposed and 64 unexposed offspring enrolled in our own ‘Healthy Start’ cohort. V...

CONCLUSIONS: The level of patient satisfaction, duration of hospitalisation and the severity of stroke were found to be the three important factors associated with SS-QOL at hospital discharge, indicating doctors might assist patients adjust to the consequences of stroke and improve the QOL of subacute stroke.

Conclusions In patients with schizophrenia who receive a fixed course of 8 ECTs, threshold BT ECT is associated with greater cognitive impairment across a range of measures, and moderately high-dose RUL ECT is associated with poorer efficacy against positive symptoms. Threshold BF ECT exhibits the best efficacy-cum-neurocognitive safety profile. All differences between groups, however, are small and perhaps clinically insignificant.

Conclusions Notwithstanding some limitations of this study, the combination of ECT and antipsychotics has improved several neurocognitive domains, without evidence of worsening of any cognitive functions.

This study is a retrospective analysis of a provincial database for inpatient psychiatry. The study includes all psychiatric inpatients 18 years or older in Ontario, Canada, assessed with the Resident Assessment Instrument for Mental Health (RAI-MH) within the first 3 days of admission between 2009 and 2014 (n = 153,023). The RAI-MH is a validated assessment tool which includes a breadth of information on symptoms, self-harm, functioning, social support, comorbid medical diagnoses, and risk appraisal. Multivariable analyses were performed using SAS. Results One hundred forty-five thousand seven hundred (95.2%) of patien...

Conclusion: These findings demonstrate for the first time the molecular cascade and related cell biology events involved in the mechanism by which HGF and bFGF derived from hADSCs improved ovarian function during natural aging via reduction of oxidative stress by activating the SIRT1/FOXO1 signaling pathway.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;45:1316 –1332

Conclusion: These results indicate that miR-27a may contribute to detrusor fibrosis in STZ-induced diabetic rats by targeting PRKAA2 via the TGF- β1/Smad3 signaling pathway.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;45:1333 –1349

Conclusion: Our results suggest that FGF-21 clears up plasma glucose by stimulating glucose absorption in the liver of diabetic animals and decreases glucose release from the liver by inhibiting gluconeogenesis. Overall, these data indicate that the liver is an important target organ of FGF-21 to regulate glucose metabolism.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;45:1423 –1433

This article does not say what kind of human stem cells were used -- it's going to create an even bigger shit storm if they were embryonic stem cells -- but you may remember that George Bush the Second actually spoke against this line of research in a State of the Union speech. So a lot of people don't like it.However, I haven't really heard anyone articulatewhy or how this is unethical. I am curious what people may think.
