- Cryonics: Low-temperature freezing & storage of a recently deceased person, with the speculative hope that resurrection may be possible in the future.
- Spontaneous Combustion: The spontaneous combustion of a human without an apparent external source of ignition.
The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.-, editor-in-chief of The Lancet (top 5 most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world), worked in various roles at the World Health Organization, highly decorated in awards
It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.-, physician and longtime editor-in-chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) (top 5 most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world)
The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.-, editor-in-chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) (top 5 most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world), and Hardvard professor of Medicine

- Blood doping

Consumables that contain large quantities of phytoestrogens:
- Instant coffee 1833
- Brazil nuts 887
- Instant coffee decafinated 647
- Pumpkin seeds 539
- Peanuts 427
Onions have significant quantities of the molecule "Quercetin",
which is a "5-Alpha Reductase inhibitor" (i.e. an inhibitor of enzyme "5-Alpha Reductase").
Enzyme "5α Reductase" converts Testosterone to
Thus, onions increase testosterone but reduce DHT.
- 👍 Male musculoskeletal development
- 👍 Spermatogenesis and fertility
- 👍 Voice deepening
- 👍 Increased sex drive and erections
- 💩 Increased sebum production and acne
- 👍 2 to 10 times better agonist of the androgen receptor (AR), which is responsible for musculoskeletal growth, compared to testosterone
- 👍 Phallus length
- 🪒 Facial, axillary, pubic, and body hair growth
- 💩 Prostate enlargement and prostate cancer risk
- 💩 Scalp temporal recession and pattern hair loss
- 💩 Probably enhanced sebum production
- Meta-Analysis: There is evidence that onions enhance testosterone level in males. It is important to point that the only human study that directly link between onion and testosterone reveal a positive effect of onion extracts on testosterone.
Quercetin is a "5-alpha reductase" inhibitor

2,4-Dinitrophenol (AKA "DNP"):
- "A fat burner so effective it's potentialy deadly"
- Legal to possess and use. Illegal to manufacture and sell.
- A "high explosive" and has an instantaneous explosion hazard (e.g. shellite/tridite). A dust explosion is possible with DNP in powder or granular form in the presence of air. DNP may explosively decompose when submitted to shock, friction or concussion, and may explode upon heating. Listed on the Homeland Security Anti-Terrorism Chemicals of Interest list.
- pesticide (until 1998)
- herbicide (until 1998)
"[the body] uncoupling it results in chemical energy (calories) from diet (food eaten recently) and energy stores (fat / food eaten long ago) ... being wasted as heat ..., leading to dangerously high body temperatures that may develop into heatstroke.
Its use as a dieting aid has been identified with severe side-effects, including a number of deaths".
It continues to be used by some bodybuilders and athletes to rapidly lose body fat by simply taking it and just sitting front of a fan and drinking water.
- Has a half-life greter than 24 hours. Meaning that just because one can handle a specific dosage today, does not mean that one can handle the same dosage tomorrow (because some of today's will still be in your system tomorrow)
- Oral exposure to DNP has resulted in nausea, vomiting, sweating, dizziness, headache, and loss of weight.
- Case reports have shown that an acute administration of 10–20 milligrams per kilogram of body weight in humans can be lethal. The lowest published fatal ingested dose is 4.3 mg/kg
