Statin Myth A New Factor In Diabetes
Over the past two decades, I have watched with increasing alarm the skyrocketing numbers of patients with type 2 diabetes who come to my wellness clinic. Often, they come to see me about other medical issues, but their diabetes adds a new level of complications to their treatment. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body’s response to insulin – the hormone critical for the maintenance of healthy blood sugar levels – becomes either ineffective or the insulin itself is produced in insufficient amounts. The horrific trend I’m seeing at my wellness clinic mirrors almost exactly what’s happening in the...

The Greatest Health Scam In History Used President Eisenhower As A Pawn
On June 24, 1956, the American Heart Association broadcasted a show on the three major television networks. It presented a new theory on heart disease: that is was caused by cholesterol. The major proponent of this theory was not a doctor or even a scientist. He was a little-known economist named Ancel Keys. Keys called his theory the “lipid hypothesis.” The idea was that meat and eggs and butter were bad for you and should be replaced by corn oil, margarine, chicken and cold cereal. Two weeks after the TV broadcast, the American Heart Association adopted the cholesterol theory of heart disease and later that y...

Statins reverse learning disabilities caused by genetic disorder
UCLA scientists have discovered that statins, a popular class of cholesterol drugs, reverse the learning disabilities caused by a genetic disorder called Noonan syndrome. Their findings were published online Nov. 10 by the journal Nature Neuroscience. The disorder, which is caused by a genetic mutation, can disrupt a child’s development in many ways. It often causes unusual facial features, short stature, heart defects and developmental delays, including learning disabilities. No treatment is currently available. “Noonan syndrome affects 1 in 2,000 people, and up to half of these patients struggle with learning...

miRNA, Inflammation and Coronary Heart Disease
This study demonstrates the relationship between miR-21 and the STAT3 pathway in Coronary Heart Disease. Delivering inhibitory miRNA into cardiomyocytes was key to establishing this relationship. Further study could enable discovery of STAT3 related targets for CV protective drug. In the spirit of helping researchers find the best solutions and protocols for Gene Expression Analysis Studies, we will continue to post new findings.
