health & fitness performance podcast Dec 11, 2018

Listen to it on your favorite podcast provider: 



 Dasha Maximov is former M&A consultant turned biohacker after six concussions. She has started a female biohacker community and is the COO of the Health Optimization Summit. Dasha shares how she has gone to dozens specialists and tried several biohacks to now finally getting her health back. She ends up with some tips for female health and what test to get as a woman to improve your health. This show notes provide a lot of scientific resources to go deeper into the proof behind some of the aspects that are often met with skepticism.

There are loads of references I could send you, these are probably the top ones:

– Good, easy to read, and practical book about nnEMF from my friend Nick Pinaeault — The Non-Tinfoil Guide to EMFs: https://amzn.to/2Dv20dq

– Wi-Fi – New meta-analysis paper by Prof. Martin Pall (2018) – The paper summarizes the various health effects found to be caused by WiFi. Wi-Fi is an important threat to human health: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0013935118300355?via%3Dihub

– Cancer from Cell Towers – Meta Analysis Paper- Yakymenko et al (2011) – a good summary of studies that show that wireless radiation from cell towers and radars has severe adverse effects. Long-Term Exposure to Microwave Radiation Provokes Cancer Growth: Evidence From Radars and Mobile Communication Systems: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21716201

– Reduced Sperm Count – Zilberlicht (2015) –  Dozens of studies prove beyond a doubt that wireless radiation adversely affects the sperm. Habits of Cellphone Usage: https://www.rbmojournal.com/article/S1472-6483(15)00300-4/fulltext

– Oxidative Stress Mechanism – Meta Analysis Paper – Yakymenko (2015) – This study shows that 93/100 studies show that wireless radiation causes oxidative stress, a mechanism that can lead to cancer, non-cancer diseases and DNA damage. This study disproves the wireless industry’s misleading statements that there is no mechanism by which non-thermal levels of wireless radiation can affect the body.

Video with a meter and phone next to it where it is turned on, turned off etc.

Note, read page 139 of the Non Tinfoil book re: bluetooth devices… specifically footnote 422 – “In one case, EMF expert Michael Neuert reports having measured levels of RF radiation emitted by a Bluetooth earpiece which were 7 times higher than the levels emitted by a cell phone. Yikes.”
