Mesencephalic astrocyte-derived neurotrophic factor (MANF; also known as ARMET or arginine-rich mutated in early stages of tumor) belongs to the fourth family of neurotrophic factors.
It plays a huge role in repairing neurons and cells after oxidative stress, and has promising uses for the future in neurodegenerative diseases (such as Parkinson's Disease). Read More
All this week on mybiohack we’re making sense of blue light. First, I explained the visible light spectrum and the differences between how blue light occurs naturally and from our devices. Then, I shared five pros and five cons of blue light. Today, I share how to truly biohack blue light by avoiding its drawbacks and biohacking its benefits. Read More

Blue light naturally occurs as part of the visual spectrum but we’re overexposed to it as a result of our devices like TVs and computers. There is a lot of research on blue light that looks at how it hurts it, but there is also increasing interest in studying how it benefits us. Today, I’ve listed five pros and five cons of blue light.

How are you reading this article? On your computer? On your phone? Are you inside? If you answered ‘yes’ to at least one of those questions, chances are, you’re looking at a blue light!
Light-emitting diodes (more often just called LEDs) are everywhere in modern life. They allow us to have useful devices like computers, tablets, and smartphones. LEDs have a peak emission in the blue light range. All around us, there are waves of different kinds of radiation. The waves we can see are called the visible spectrum and we see it as light. That light is made up of different colors. If you’re having trouble visualizing this, think of the Pink Floyd cover of the triangle and the rainbow. That’s a representation of plain light being dispersed by a prism in order to show all the colors that are contained in it. Read More

Recent cancer research has helped us understand how the body detoxes.
By studying upregulated genes in tumorous cells, we were able to find the Nuclear Erythroid 2–Related Factor 2 (NRF2) pathway.
NRF2 is a major transcription factor in detoxing the body and keeping it healthy.
In this post, we will discuss the benefits/downsides of NRF2 activation, as well as why NRF2 may be hurting you more than helping you (and what you can do about it). Read More
