Lectins Cause Mitochondria Damage

Phytohemagglutinins (PHA) Lectins bind to Mitochondria triggering a mitochondria-mediated apoptosis causing cells to age-prematurely. Symptoms of Mitochondrial Damage such as fatigue, muscle pain, shortness of breath, and abdominal pain can easily be mistaken for collagen or vascular disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, or psychosomatic illness.  Mitochondrial damage is poorly diagnosed, and when symptoms do occur, they can run…

Immune Cells Produce TSH

The Pituitary is not the only producer of TSH. Invasive Bacterial species promote T-cell differentiation, which cause lymphocyte production of an immunoreactive Thyrotropin (irTSH). Low serum thyroxine (T4) levels and increased thyrotropin (TSH) polymorphism suggests an impaired Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Thyroid axis (HPT).   Though thyroid atrophy due to chronic under-stimulation could explain the low T3 response to…
