How Jet Fumes And Hypoxia On Planes Affect The Body

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).

How Chronic Fluoride Can Damage Mitochondria And The Gut Biome

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.

The 9+ Benefits of Irisin And How To Increase It Naturally

Irisin is an anti-obesity and anti-diabetes hormone that regulates fat tissue and blood sugar.

Irisin is generated by exercise and acts as an insulin-sensitizing hormone.

Irisin is so powerful that even moderately increased levels of circulating irisin potently increases energy expenditure, reduces body weight and improves diet-induced insulin resistance.

Adropin: A Predictor of Heart Disease

Preptin, adropin and irisin are three co-workers in the regulation of energy homeostasis. 

Adropin is derived from the Latin roots “aduro” [to set fire to] and “pinquis” [fats or oils]. 

It was first discovered in 2008 by Kumar and his coworkers. 

Peptides secreted from peripheral organs regulate lipid metabolism in key insulin-target tissues and are important for energy homeostasis and maintaining insulin sensitivity.
