Cool Facts Friday #26

with Dave Asprey

A mix of facts about humans, humanity and the strange and wonderful world in which we live.


In this Episode of The Human Upgrade™...

Cool Facts are quick hits of new human and world science curated into short bursts of information just for you. This fun compilation publishes one Friday a month.
  • Gut bacteria convert vitamin A to retinoic acid
  • Low-carb diets contribute to depression
  • Lifestyle affects cognitive health more than age
  • More bad news about America’s obesity epidemic 

"Eat less, move more is dumb because it doesn't work. It didn't work for me, it's never worked for most people because it goes against nature. The changes in our food supply are changing your weight and out of control stress hormones are a part of the problem."
