Diet, exercise, and medicine, damaging or repairing respiratory metabolism MAIN IDEAS AND CONTEXTS Lactic acid and carbon dioxide have opposing effects. Intense exercise damages cells in ways that cumulatively impair metabolism. There is clear evidence that glycolysis, producing lactic acid from glucose, has toxic effects, suppressing respiration and killing cells. Within five minutes

Hospital accidents kill more people than highway accidents. But when people die while they are receiving standard, but irrational and antiscientific treatments and “support,” the deaths aren’t counted as accidents. The numbers are large. Medical training and medical textbooks bear great responsibility for those unnecessary deaths. Most medical research is done under the influence of mistaken

Acetylcholine is the "neurotransmitter" of cholinergic nerves, including the parasympathetic system. Cholinesterase (or acetylcholinesterase) is an enzyme that destroys acetylcholine, limiting the action of the cholinergic nerves. Attaching a phosphate group to the cholinesterase enzyme inactivates it, prolonging and intensifying the action of cholinergic stimulation

“Then tell me, what is the material world, and is it dead?” He, laughing. answer’d: “I will write a book on leaves of flowers, if you will feed me on love thoughts & give me now and then A cup of sparkling poetic fancies; so, when I am tipsie, I’ll sing to you to this soft lute, and shew you all alive The world, where every particle of dust breathes forth its joy.” -William Blake The cell

“Energy and structure are interdependent, at every level” -Ray Peat It is my intention here to show that the basic problem of carcinogenesis, that is the origin of cancer in the organism, has been understood, not only this, that following from the understanding of cancer’s origin comes knowledge of how to prevent and reverse the cancer process. Much of this draws upon the ideas presented in

“Aging and stress increase some of the inflammatory mediators, tending to reduce the barrier function of the bowel, letting larger amounts of bacterial toxins enter the bloodstream, interfering with energy metabolism, creating inflammatory vicious circles of increasing leakiness and inflammation.” –Ray Peat Many of the shatkarmas (bodily purification techniques) of Hatha Yoga focus on

“Marshalling the information needed to optimize our own development runs counter to the program of our technicalscientific culture, which prefers to believe that degeneration is programmed, while emergent evolution is unforeseeable. But, if an optimization project is presented as a way to forestall the “programmed degeneration,” it might succeed in becoming part of the culture.” -Ray Peat

“In every case do the opposite to whatever technology does today. Then you will always be on the right track.” “They called me deranged. The hope is that they are right. It is of no greater import if another fool wander this Earth. But if I am right and the science is wrong – then may the Lord God have mercy on mankind.” -Viktor Schauberger First a disclaimer: My own understanding of Viktor

“Each stage of evolutionary history has its characteristic metabolic chemistry. By protecting and promoting mitochondrial respiration we are contributing to our own evolution.” –Ray Peat Part 1: Mojo and Mitochondria. Mitochondria are the organelles responsible for energy production in the cell, it is within the mitochondria where food, in the form of carbohydrates, fats and protein, is
