Nitric Oxide Spawns an Evil Twin



By Atom Bergstrom

Atom’s Blog

Oxygen blocks nitrogen (nitric oxide), stopping fertilization.

Oxygen also stops cancer “fertilization,” a fact embryologist John Beard (1854-1924) grokked before Otto Warburg (1883-1970) investigated the respiration of cancer cells.

Dr. Beard understood cancer is an “evil twin.”


Most modern researchers don’t grasp nitric oxide’s overall functions.

They’re bogged down in receptor theory (“a cultural fabrication of the pharmaceutical industry”).


Julia Karow (“When Sperm Meets Egg: The sex life of sea urchins shows that the answer to fertility is NO,” Scientific American, Aug. 2000) wrote …

“One question was whether NO or the extra NOS from the sperm were enough to activate the egg. To answer it, the researchers [David Epel and his colleagues from Stanford University] injected one of two molecules into the eggs: a molecule that releases NO gas spontaneously or the NOS-enzyme. They found that in both cases, a large fraction of the eggs started to lift up their fertilization membrane, a sure sign of activation.

“Additional experiments suggested that, NO aside, nothing else in the sperm seems able to activate the eggs. To prove this, the scientists turned to oxyhemoglobin, the familiar oxygen transporter in blood. This protein mops up and “neutralizes” all NO in its vicinity before the gas can perform any other function. And Epel’s team found that when they injected oxyhemoglobin into the eggs, the sperm could no longer activate them and the calcium levels in their cytoplasms remained low; nothing replaced the function of NO.”

    I’m writing another book (this will make seven about the DHA DECEPTION and Waxy Yellow Fat Disease.


    Re: Isn’t DHA crucial for RPE (retinal pigment epithelium)?

    Indians such as the Apaches were known for their sharp eyesight.

    Maybe it was all the salmon the desert-dwelling Apaches caught in Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas?


    Desert hawks are known for their keen binocular vision — allegedly eight times more powerful than human eyesight.

    They don’t hunt salmon, so maybe the rodents they eat do?–e-books.php


    • February 22, 2018 @ 9:43 pm John

      I love it!


      • February 23, 2018 @ 1:36 am Atom

        By the way, a salmon’s eyesight is “none too good.”

        Why does a fresh-water trout have much better eyesight?


        • February 23, 2018 @ 8:15 pm John



          • February 23, 2018 @ 9:22 pm Atom

            Maybe trout don’t have access to DHA.

            I’m just speculating, but if DHA is go good for the retina, why aren’t DHA-rich salmon more “hawk-eyed”? :)

    Doesn’t the Burst Exercise idea release NO that builds muscle?


    • February 22, 2018 @ 3:34 pm Atom

      Ever wonder why so many bodybuilders die of cancer (including my friend Don Peters)?

      It’s the Nitric Oxide / L-Arginine / Prolactin Triad.

      In the exact words of comedian Robin Williams …

      “Viagra is NOT your friend. Are you coming? No, I’m dying!”

          Re: How does nitric oxide (NO) trigger muscle growth?

          Nitric oxide triggers the Warburg Effect.

          Sugar takes the heat while NO walks on water.

          According to Otto Warburg …

          “In the absence of oxygen, life can’t do anything but grow and divide.”


          Muscle growth and muscle strength are two different things.

          Watch Sri Chinmoy do his amazing lifts on YouTube.

          He performed them while weighing under 150 pounds.

          Remember Wiley Brooks, the alleged breatharian?

          His ex-girlfriend told me he ate fast-food burgers, yet how can we explain the feats he performed in the gym?

          “He Weighs a Puny 135 Pounds but Can Hoist 965,” proclaims one headline.

          He was skinny and had “pole-thin legs.”

    Six ways to supplement with nitric oxide (NO) …

    1) Develop Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

    2) Breathe deeply on a smoggy day in downtown Los Angeles.

    3) Eat food packed in cans containing bisphenol A (BPA).

    4) Swallow L-arginine capsules.

    5) Swallow L-tryptophan capsules (esp. when combined with L-arginine capsules).

    6) Expose yourself to Blue Light Therapy.


    Nitric oxide (not sugar) triggers the Warburg Effect.

    Say “No!” to NO.

      So…we want oxygen but not NO? Did I get that right?


      • February 23, 2018 @ 9:44 am Atom

        Re: So … we want oxygen but not NO? Did I get that right?

        We need carbon dioxide so we can get oxygen.

        It’s called the Bohr effect.

        Dr. Christian Bohr (1855-1911) got the credit, but other physicians were already familiar with it.


        Friedrich Miescher (1844-1895) wrote (in 1885) …

        “Over the O2 supply of the body, CO2 spreads its protective wings.”


        The less you breathe, the more oxygen (and consciousness) you get.

        According to Swami Nitty-Gritty …

        “Brain power is increased when breath enters this particular state of neutrality known as samadhi, the breathless state, hibernation, or suspended animation.”

    Re: So, ‘nitric oxide dump’ exercises, which are much touted now, are inadvisable, Atom Bergstrom?

    High-intensity interval training (HIIT) — if done correctly and not too intensely — has value.

    Nitric oxide originating in the muscle does much less damage than supplemental nitric oxide, which goes everywhere.

    It’s similar to the difference between castor oil applied to the skin versus castor oil in the intestines.


    • February 24, 2018 @ 12:07 pm John

      what’s the difference between castor oil on the skin versus in the intestines ?


      • February 25, 2018 @ 7:03 pm Atom

        Castor oil causes intestinal bleeding, while it soothes the skin.

    Re: What about light therapy devices such as this one from Inlight Medical?

    Best is a 250 watt red heat lamp to photodissociate (destroy) nitric oxide.

    For more info on “light water,” see my ORN blog entry, “Deuterium-Depleted Water & Deuterium-Enhanced Water” (Jul. 29, 2014). (ORN’s “Search” feature is awesome!)

    Since “ordinary water” only contains about 156 (or so) deuterium atoms per million hydrogen atoms, it’s not worth my effort to eliminate any of these pesky deuterium atoms.

    Most experts claim you wouldn’t notice a difference even if the ratio was 250,000 (or so) deuterium atoms per million hydrogen atoms, but then I definitely would be motivated to eliminate more than some of these deuterium atoms.

    There’s a big difference between hosting a party for 156 guests versus 250,000 guests.

    Deuterium-enhanced water (“heavy water,” the opposite of “light water”) is even being used to reduce blood pressure, although there are much better ways to do this !!!!!

    Hi Atom, should tomatoes be eaten without the skin and if so why ?


    • February 25, 2018 @ 7:05 pm Atom

      The skins can get “stuck” in the intestines.

      It’s probably a rare occurrence, but I’ve been eating most of my tomatoes without the skins for decades.

    Hi Atom, how long do you need to jump on a trampoline to move the lymph ?


    • February 25, 2018 @ 7:10 pm Atom

      Any physical action for any time moves lymph — it’s just a question of how far and how long you want to move it.

      NASA rejected trampolines for the same reason I ENDORSE them.


      • February 26, 2018 @ 4:19 pm James

        Another cliff hanger Atom… Why did NASA reject trampolines? AND how long is too long?


        • February 26, 2018 @ 7:33 pm Atom

          NASA is trying to put calcium into bones instead of into the pineal gland.

          Some scientists know (but don’t know why), “It seems that the pinealocyte is both an endocrine and gravisensory cell.”

          NASA probably missed that memo (and Swami Nitty-Gritty isn’t one of their advisers now as he was in the 1980s).

          There’s no time limit on using a mini-trampoline, although restricting use to 20 minutes every two hours might be a good idea.

          You’ve jumped too long if it makes you tired.

    Hi Atom,
    coffee beans are burned when roasted. Does this make them a cancerous food?


    • February 26, 2018 @ 8:01 pm Atom

      All foods have multiple downsides. That’s why “light roast” coffee is a higher choice.

      However, one capsule of activated charcoal (burned organic matter) is probably more dangerous than several hundred cups of “dark roast” coffee.

      And saccharine, originally called “coal tar sugar,” is even worse.

      All foods have upsides too — there are more anti-cancer nutrients in coffee (caffeine, niacinamide, etc.) than carcinogens (magnesium, acrylamide, etc.).

      It’s well known that coffee drinkers have low rates of cancer.


      • February 27, 2018 @ 6:49 am John

        How is caffeine anti-cancer ?
        Magnesium in coffee is a carcinogen ?


        • February 27, 2018 @ 11:00 am Atom

          Re: How is caffeine anti-cancer?

          The evidence is overwhelming, and easily found in cyberspace.

          Even the World Health Organization, which once listed caffeine as a carcinogen, now calls it an anti-carcinogen.

          But how is it anti-cancer? There are theories out the wazoo.

          In a world where Big Science still believes in membrane pumps and essential fatty acids, don’t expect a valid answer soon.


          Re: Magnesium in coffee is a carcinogen?

          Is cancer a fungus? No.

          Is cancer a parasite? No.

          Is cancer an isoparasite? Yes.

          Cancer loves to eat (almost) everything its host does — including magnesium.

          Magnesium prevents the growth of cancer, but encourages its metastasis.

    Is there any health benefit to cooking your foods in a pressure cooker ?


    • February 27, 2018 @ 11:20 am Atom

      Pressure cooking saves water and power, and neutralizes toxins.

      However, we prefer ordinary boiling and baking.

    When eating fresh aloe vera leaf is it ok to eat the brown sap that comes out when you cut it or better not to ?


    • February 27, 2018 @ 11:44 am Atom

      Opinions vary.

      I tend to avoid it, but Vibrant Gal ate it for years without any ill effects.

      The aloin in the brown sap is a potent laxative.

    For a middle aged man with deep vein thrombosis where the left leg swells from the foot to below the knee and the skin goes red on occasion what would help to remedy it ?


    • February 27, 2018 @ 1:16 pm Atom

      Whole oranges or lemon juice at Spleen-Pancreas Time and Gall Bladder Time are anti-thrombotic and anti-edematous.

      Estrogen, polyunsaturated fatty acids, cold weather, darkness, and lack of sodium chloride encourage thrombosis.

      Yawning with a wide-open mouth longer than 7 seconds at a time is anti-edematous.

      (The longer the yawn, the bigger the brain.)

      Left leg = Cognitive Shock involving a man.

  15. February 27, 2018 @ 6:22 pm James

    You mentioned “However, one capsule of activated charcoal (burned organic matter) is probably more dangerous than several hundred cups of “dark roast” coffee.”
    Why are different guests recommending to take activated charcoal internally for toxins? Is there any benefit under the right circumstances?


    • February 27, 2018 @ 8:17 pm Atom

      Activated charcoal could “detoxify” the stomach and part of the intestines if you used 25,000-50,000 milligrams a day.

      That’s 100 to 200 250-milligram capsules (or tablets) a day.

      Smaller amounts can reduce bloating and abdominal cramps (but with what side effects?).

      For more info, see my One Radio Network blog entry, “Another Side of Activated Charcoal” (Nov. 14, 2016).


      Whenever someone mentions “detoxification,” the founder of homeopathy (Samuel Hahnemann) spins a little faster in his grave. :-D

    How do you get the skins off the tomato ?


    • February 28, 2018 @ 1:28 pm Atom

      Most people do it by holding a tomato under hot running water from the faucet until the skin loosens enough to be gently squeezed off.

      (Warning: Don’t burn your fingertips!)

      I eat a tomato the lazy way — I cut a tomato in quarters, then eat the flesh out of the skin.
