Lactic Acidosis: A Mechanism For Common Disease
Although there are many diseases, it can be asserted that many, or even most of them are derived from lower common denominators. Some would even take that further with the suggestion that there is perhaps even just a single cause for illness, and while that may be true, it is not the intention of this article to prove that. It is worthy to note that there is, however, a large body of evidence that demonstrates many common diseases are narrowed down to more simple causes having to do with diet and so forth. Sadly, much of that evidence and research seems to get drowned out by interests which are somewhat competitive to the cause of progress towards public health. This is said to be true of much of the research by doctors who studied the fields of nutrition and metabolism during the first part of the twentieth century, specifically regarding the study and significance of Lactic Acid and its effects as a by-product of carbohydrate synthesis, which we will discuss in greater detail in this article.
Research That Provided Answers
Much of the progress that led to the describing of mechanisms within the human body which cause common diseases such as Diabetes, Cancer and Heart disease were made in the time between 1920 and 1960 by a handful of doctors in the US - Dr. Royal Lee, Dr. Westin Price and others: Although much of this research and progress was largely stopped and even eradicated because of pressure and an eventual lawsuit by the FDA and The American Sugar Association against Dr.Lee and his company, Standard Process, which still exists, the motives of these agencies are obviously shady for those in the know. Coincidental changes that took place simultaneously may also shed light on the conspiratorial nature of attitude towards human and environmental welfare by the governing authorities: For example, the agricultural practice of spraying chemicals as pesticides to replace long trusted and dependable farming practices such as land rest were introduced after WWII because of an alleged overabundance of petrochemicals caused by military defense production and what the governing bodies afterwards saw fit to do with that excess. In a nutshell, this is what has led to the pesticide and GMO 'dependance' of todays world which is without a doubt detrimental to both health and environment. In a similar way, the medical field added more emphasis than ever to its focus on petrochemicals like pharmaceuticals in its primary approach for dealing with illness, all the while cutting off the air supply to more natural therapies like Dr. Lee's that were not only getting attention, but were getting results. Whether or not these coincidences happened for the same reason after WWII, one thing is difficult to deny: Considering the avoidable health and environmental damage, the governing bodies responsible had financial gain/interests in mind above the interests of public and environmental welfare. However, given the ever increasing amount of conspiracy and cover up brought to light since the dawning of this information age, there is nothing at all new or surprising about that.
Getting back to the subject of the propagations of disease, which can generally be related to Endocrinology, one of, or perhaps the lowest common denominator must be what was called Lactic Acidosis, a proper term developed for a condition which occurs in the metabolic pathway. The reason I use the term was here is because the current mainstream model holds a completely different meaning than the former that was used in 1960 and before.
Although there are currently contradictions as to how to define Lactic Acidosis or what causes it, this in reality is largely due to a lack of understanding by the medical community. The proper scientific definition according to the aforementioned historical data is more comprehensive than the current mainstream science model because of its progressive, more logical approach than that of the chaotic patchwork of the magically and unquestioningly accepted conclusions of pharmaceutical driven research.
The concept of Lactic Acidosis discussed here, then, definitively, is a chain of events in which the consumption of high levels of carbohydrates (and especially high levels of processed carbohydrates like candy bars, processed cereals, and sugar to name the worst culprits) impede the metabolic pathway, specifically when the by-product(s) of mitochondrial energy synthesis (called metabolites), such as Lactate, caused by that same carbohydrate intake, eventually result in a decline in the liver's efficacy to purify the blood, causing a polluted cardiovascular system in which oxygen must compete for space in the veins, setting up a disease prone environment. The next significant sequence in this chain is a known chemical reaction in which the heart releases Nitric Oxide into the bloodstream to facilitate oxygen transport through the cells by means of vasodilation, causing the heart to beat faster, resulting in heart palpitations. Over time, the stagnation in the blood becomes more predominant, and 'pooling' of stagnant blood in the capillary beds leads to chronic hypoxia (low presence of oxygen in the blood) or anoxia (absence of oxygen in the blood): Being devoid of oxygen, cell death occurs, and upon degeneration, toxins are released into an environment where circulation is compromised, setting up a catalyst for further disease.
The Role of the Liver in Lactic Acidosis
The liver, in the Lactic Acidosis condition, becomes increasingly ineffective due to lack of synergistic B vitamins and thusly is unable to process the byproducts it is normally able to. This also leads to the Cori cycle, a cycle discovered by
