We also like sweet and protein rich foods. The crispiness on baked goods, chips, or grilled foods is a combination of… Continue reading Zinc, cancer, and bitter taste receptors

Cytokine Storm, SIDS, autism and Vitamin C

The over-reaction of the immune system to any infectious stimulant whether an infection or vaccines, may be a cause of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) (1) and the encephalopathy (2) that is a frequent factor in later development of autism. (3) Sudden Infant Death Syndrome may be a toxin overload as success was achieved with… Continue reading Cytokine Storm, SIDS, autism and Vitamin C

Nrf2 and Nf-Kb pathways – one restorative, one inflammatory

Many phytonutrients and other chemicals have been found to promote the production of the Nrf2 gene and its encoded Nrf2 protein, both of which have varying impacts on other genes causing an increase in immune strength and in our own production of antioxidants. Other research has focused on nutrients and chemicals that inhibit or promote… Continue reading Nrf2 and Nf-Kb pathways – one restorative, one inflammatory

Hypercoaguability; TNF alpha & Nrf2

*This post got quite long so I put it in a document form too and added a Table of the medicinal foods/herbs/extracts, there are still more to add: docs.google.com . The table of 700 small molecules that may help reduce TNF-alpha by inhibiting the NF-kB pathway is quite large, so I am working on recreating… Continue reading Hypercoaguability; TNF alpha & Nrf2
