Something worth watching- CRISPR in 90 seconds
Most of us have never heard of CRISPR but some very smart people think it’s going to change everything in terms of human health. CRISPR enables us to edit DNA, so we can take out what we don’t want and add in what we do. Scientists believe CRISPR will revolutionize medicine, cure most diseases and eventually allow us to create a genetically modified human. There is a ton of really technical scientific data available on the topic and an amazing podcast available on RadioLab if you really want to go deep. This video is only 90 seconds and explains CRISPR in layman terms.
A podcast worth listening to – “Fasting, Ketosis and the end of Cancer”
This podcast forever changed they way we think about food. After listing to Dominic D’Agustino, we both couldn’t wait to buy exogenous ketones and jump into ketosis to see if this guy was for real. He is likely the foremost researcher in the country, if not the world, on nutritional ketosis. His research proves the many health benefits of living in ketosis including building strategies to fight diabetes and cancer. We are both enthusiastic fans of ketosis and Dr. Dom.
An item we love – FitBit Blaze
Not only does this device track your daily steps, it has an altimeter that tracks the number of floors you climb in a day and the number of calories you burn. It connects to your phone so you can get text messages and see incoming calls, but the most informative feature is the sleep monitoring. It monitors your movement and heart rate while you sleep giving you the total number of hours you actually slept. This feature alone makes it’s a worth while purchase.
