New research shows that 2,4-DABA induces irreversible functional changes in neurons.

From the abstract of a recent paper by Spacic et al. in Aquatic Toxicology:

“In this paper we present, for the first time, a detailed account of electrophysiological effects of 2,4-diaminobutyric acid (2,4-DABA). 240 more words

Repeated five-day administration of L-BMAA, microcystin-LR, or as mixture, in adult C57BL/6 mice - lack of adverse cognitive effects

Abstract from the Myhre et al. (2018) paper in Scientific Reports:

“The cyanobacterial toxins β-methylamino-L-alanine (L-BMAA) and microcystin-LR (MC-LR; a potent liver toxin) are suspected to cause neurological disorders. 205 more words

Metabolic solutions to the biosynthesis of BMAA and 2,4-DAB in cyanobacteria

The pathways of BMAA (and the related 2,4-DAB) biosynthesis in cyanobacteria are not known. A recent review by Peter Nunn and Geoffrey Codd considers possible metabolic routes, by analogy with reactions used in other species, by which these amino acids might be biosynthesised by cyanobacteria, which are a widespread potential environmental source of these neurotoxins. 40 more words

PROOF: Flu shots are the Greatest Medical Fraud in the History of the World

Flu shots are the Greatest Medical Fraud in History.

As one of the very few independent voices willing to stand up against the scientific dogma of our modern medical regime, I’ve long felt a need to communicate the dangers of flu shots to the public so that people can have better information to prevent vaccine injuries and save lives. 2,180 more words

Cancer from toxins, inhaled, small metal dusts, lack of sleep and our brain

We must know what are the toxins or lifestyles that contribute to cancer.  Some of the toxins are metal dusts and neurotoxins proliferate in the absence of sleep. 243 more words
