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).

The Gateway Drug of the Pharmaceutical Industry (NSAIDs Part 3)

This week we’re learning about non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs.  First, we went over how they cause lasting damage to your body (link), then, we dove deeper into the negative effects on your cells and your body (link).  Today, I’m going to show you some alternatives to taking NSAIDs.

Most of these treatments work by inhibiting the COX-1 or COX-2 pathway.  Cyclooxygenase, often abbreviated as “COX” is a chemical catalyst in your body that speeds up the production of other chemicals in your body that cause inflammation and pain.  The pathway is the way these chemical reactions link together.  If you inhibit or disrupt the pathway, then the result could be prevented. So, treatments that inhibit the COX-1 or COX-2 pathway reduce their ability to cause pain.

The Gateway Drug of the Pharmaceutical Industry (NSAIDs Part 2)

This week we’re discussing pain relieving drugs, known as NSAIDs.  In my last post we went over some basics and learned that NSAIDs create a negative feedback loop in your body because they harm more than they heal.  Today, I’m going to go more in depth about 5 harmful side effects of NSAIDs.

At the root of most of these problems is that NSAIDs affect the mitochondria in your body’s cells.  Every cell in your body is made up of parts called organelles.  You can think of them like the organs in your own body—each has a job to do in order for your body to work.  Since the organs in our bodies are made of cells, we need the organelles in our cells to function properly, too!

The Gateway Drug of the Pharmaceutical Industry (NSAIDs Part 1)

If you were to look in your home medicine cabinet right now, I’m willing to bet you have at least one bottle of a pain reliever—perhaps a generic ibuprofen or a well-known brand like Tylenol or Aspirin. These types of medicines are very common because they’re easily available over the counter or on shelves at practically any pharmacy in the US.

However, just because they’re so easy to get doesn’t mean that they don’t have hidden and incredibly harmful side effects.

I’m going to tell you about the harms of these drugs and safer and healthy alternatives to them.
