Evolution is a gradual change in the DNA of a species over many centuries, occurring by natural selection when traits created by genetic mutations promote survival or reproduction in an organism.
By looking at global DNA studies, it is evident that human evolution hasn’t stopped, but is happening at a faster rate than before.
What we consume or don't consume influences our genes. Example: Countries where milk isn’t taken commonly, develop lactose intolerance and other digestive problems.
Our Ultra-processed and super-unhealthy diets are also contributing to genetic adaptation, with studies showing changes in blood pressure and cholesterol levels. The upcoming result of this mutation of DNA is uncharted territory and will be more fully understood in the coming decades.
Certain molecular repairs seem to be happening in a biased way in our bodies, according to recent scientific studies of the genome. Certain ‘fast-evolving’ genes are rapidly accelerating, causing a fast rate of evolution.
This is currently being studied and is pointing towards new kinds of genetic problems for future generations.
Our sense of smell works in wondrous ways since the chemical composition of our surrounding change instantly and constantly. Our noses pick up volatile airborne compounds that interact with our olfactory receptors.
The information that we get from our surroundings pass through our noses and then to the core cortex in the brain. We, humans have about 400 types of olfactory receptors which is used to identify many different types of chemicals that have varying odor quality.
Biohacking manipulates one’s brain and body to ‘hack’ it, outside the realm of mainstream science and medicine.
Biohacking, or doing biological activities on oneself, is a broad term and covers stuff like performing ‘Young Blood Transfusion’ or tracking one’s sleep patterns. It took wings from Silicon Valley, where people started broadcasting their intermittent fasting, crazy diets, DNA injecting and the popular dopamine fasting.
We are more likely to listen to success stories than failures. The result is that we often over-estimate the likelihood of success in risky ventures.
