Antifragility is the blueprint for living in a Black Swan world.
When was the last time you thought about what you were doing when you took a shower, or brushed your teeth, or drove home from work, or tied your shoes, or any of the other dozens (maybe hundreds ) of mundane things you do each day while your mind is anywhere but on the task at hand? Your brain has long since converted those things into habits, freeing your mind from the exhausting concentration that was required when those actions were new. We would all be drained husks at the end of each day if everything we did required constant focus. . Now reconsider the fact that there has never been a point in history, aside from the last blink of our human existence, in which health and fitness were things that we needed to make an effort to create for ourselves. Once we understand this concept, it becomes clear that most of us just want to live our lives. We don’t have brains that are wired for all this focus on abstract concepts like moving and eating for the sake of becoming what we always became by accident before we started playing this society game. . Let’s look at how things might play out with food. If something tastes good, our brains make the assumption that we have found a healthy source of calories and they take action to make sure we eat this food again when we find it in the future. But now there exist such “foods” as margherita pizza. You don’t eat margherita pizza when you’re hungry. You only eat margherita pizza for its flavor and the resulting chemical reward in your brain...#dopamine. Thus we have broken the system. What used to be a necessary tool for survival has been turned against us by those who manufacture hyperpalatability in processed foods without also including the nutrition that the added flavor should indicate.

Fasting May Hold Key to Cancer and Dementia Prevention . Besides normalizing your weight, intermittent #fasting is also one of the ways by which you can significantly boost mitochondrial health and energy efficiency, which is important for chronic disease prevention, thereby cutting your risk for health problems like heart disease and cancer. . Intermittent fasting can also have a very beneficial impact on your brain function, and may even hold the key to preventing Alzheimer's disease. . Mark Mattson, Ph.D. has conducted animal studies showing that when mice, genetically engineered to develop Alzheimer's, are put on an alternate day fasting diet, they develop Alzheimer's around the age of 2 years, which in human terms is equivalent to being 90. . Normally, they develop dementia in half that time — around 1 year, equivalent to the age of 40 or 50 in humans. When he put them on a junk food diet, they developed Alzheimer's around 9 months! Mattson's research suggests that alternate day fasting can boost a protein known as brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF ) by anywhere from 50 to 400 percent, depending on the brain region. . BDNF activates brain stem cells to convert into new neurons. It also triggers other chemicals that promote neural health, and has been shown to protect brain cells from adverse changes associated with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

2 ribeyes and yams . Genes are turned on and off by regulatory genes and regulatory genes are mainly controlled by nutrients. A gene will not express itself unless the internal environment is conducive to its expression… and we have ultimate control over that by the foods we choose to eat, the emotions we habitually choose to experience, the toxicity of the environment in which we live and the lifestyle we consistently choose to live. #verticaldiet #antifragile
3 reasons healthcare is destined to fail: . 1 Standard American Diet and lifestyle are out of alignment with our genes and our biology . 2 Our current system is not suited to tackle CHRONIC DISEASE . 3 Our model for delivering care doesn't support the interventions that would have the biggest impact on preventing and reversing chronic disease . 86% of the $3.2 trillion dollars we spend on healthcare goes toward treating chronic disease. 3% of the 3.2 trillion dollars goes to educate people on diet or lifestyle behavior changes that could actually reverse chronic disease and prevent it. #health
Fasting: regeneration from within . Research has shown that fasting for up to 3 days, boosts stem cell growth, raises ketone bodies in the blood, bolsters the immune system, increases fat oxidation, cleanses the body through a process called autophagy, reduces blood sugar, insulin, and inflammation levels dramatically. . One of the major benefits of fasting, particularly prolong fasting, which is around 4 to 5 days in humans, is a dramatic increase in autophagy and apoptosis, followed by a a massive boost in stem cell production. Autophagy clears away damage cells to use for energy, while apoptosis is a genetic program that causes damaged cells to self destruct. Both of these processes prevent damage cells from becoming cancer cells. #health
There are many reasons why your cholesterol levels might go up: it could be your body’s response to inflammation, or it could be a sign that part of your body is malfunctioning...maybe your thyroid function is low. #health

Repost from @history using @RepostRegramApp - The image has become iconic and the woman in it, a then 28-year-old Marcy Borders, became known as the 'dust lady' in the days after 9/11. She had been working in the North Tower of the World Trade Center only a month, on the 81st floor which was only 12 stories down from where American Airlines Flight 11 made impact. She made her way down the main stairwell of the tower, along with hundreds of others escaping. In the time it took her to reach the ground floor, the South Tower had just collapsed and an enormous dust cloud, visible from space, was rising. “I took chase from this cloud of dust and smoke that was following me,” Borders said. “Once it caught me it threw me on my hands and knees. Every time I inhaled my mouth filled up with it, I was choking. I was saying to myself out loud, I didn’t want to die, I didn’t want to die.” She was pulled from the dust and into a nearby lobby by a man, and that is where photographer @stanhonda snapped this haunting photo, seen around the world as a testament to the horrors of 9/11. Marcy Borders passed away from stomach cancer in August 2015, cancer she believes was exacerbated by inhaling dust on that fateful day. The 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund and the World Trade Center Health Program estimate that over 2,000 have died of illnesses related to the attack in the past 18 years. #September11th #DustLady #MarcyBorders #History #NeverForget #PatriotDay #WorldTradeCenter #wtc #911memorial

Fountain of Youth’ or Edible Hoax . One recent study of 53 elderly men with sarcopenia, a loss of muscle caused by aging, found that those who took 15 grams of collagen daily, in addition to lifting weights three times per week for 3 months, gained significantly more muscle and lost more fat than those who only lifted weights. #association
