Hypoxia (loss of oxygen) is a major stressor on the body.
On average, one can live ~21 days without food, ~2 days without water, but only a few minutes without oxygen. R
Most studies review long term exposure of hypoxia, but in this post we will discuss what happens to the body on a cellular level when exposed to hypoxia in the short term, such as flying or space travel (in a non-hormetic way).Read More
In this post, we will discuss the benefits of chitosan and chitosan derivatives.Read More
Amentoflavone Is Cool (AF) :D
Amentoflavone (AF) is a naturally occurring biflavonoid found in many (over 120) natural plants, such as Gingko Biloba and St. John's Wort.
Fluoride is a trace element, but it is found in our daily exposure more than a "trace".
In small amounts, it appears to be okay.
The problems with fluoride appear to be in chronic use of it over long periods of time, and/or being exposed to a high dose of it in a single instance.
Apart from skeletal tissue and teeth, fluoride can cause changes in the kidneys, liver, thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary gland, testis, muscle tissues, stomach, brain, neurons, and immune system.
I have mild dental fluorosis, probably from drinking too much fluoridated water, using fluoridated toothpaste, along with taking fluoride at the dentist to protect my enamel.Read More

Ziziphus jujuba (jujube or Chinese dates), a plant in the family Rhamnaceae, is used in several Asian countries as a food and traditional medicine for over 3000 years.
The different parts of the Jujube plant (seeds, fruit, leaves, roots, etc) have different functions on the body.Read More
Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) are perceived as environmental stressors on living organisms.
But since man-made EMFs are a very new stressor for humans, our cells have not developed proper defensive mechanisms against them.
For example, EMFs are classified as possibly carcinogenic (cancer causing) as is arsenic, chloroform, cigarettes, DDT, estrogenics, heavy metals, roundup, etc.
It seems clear that we would not willingly expose ourselves to these other agents, so why would we expose ourselves EMFs?
Is it from digital dementia (using electronics to remember everything for us) or FOMO (fear of missing out)?
In this post, to simplify everything, I'll try to stay away from quantum physics as much as possible. 😉
I'll also show as unbiased of an opinion of EMFs as possible, but I do give you my opinion towards the end.
I'll also provide ways you can protect yourself from the downsides of EMFs.Read More
Interleukin 8 (IL8 or CXCL8) is a chemokine produced by macrophages and other cell types such as epithelial cells, airway smooth muscle cells and endothelial cells.
IL-8, also known as neutrophil chemotactic factor, has two primary functions:
It induces chemotaxis in target cells, primarily neutrophils but also other granulocytes, causing them to migrate toward the site of infection.
It also induces phagocytosis once they have arrived.
