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).

Why NRF2 Activation Can Make You More Sick

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).

Blue Light's Unique Effects On Our Health

In 1958, researchers looked at how each unique color affected organisms. 

They found out that blue light could change the circadian rhythm of algae, and this was later found out to be true with humans as well. 

Our understanding about blue light has increased and I have summarized what the literature shows to date.

Blue light is quite powerful and has the power to reset/disrupt our circadian rhythms, but if used and timed properly it may mitigate diseases like diabetes, obesity, depression, anxiety, bulimia, schizophrenia, dementia, and Parkinson's Disease. 

Some of the reasons (more explained below) is because blue light influences hormone secretion, heart rate, alertness, sleep, body temperature, and gene expression.

Are EMFs Dangerous? Unbiased Science-Based Review of Electromagnetic Fields

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.
