Nutritional epigenetics, exercise, and immune system integrity

terrarium eco system

Anti-inflammatory mechanism of dieting and fasting revealed Summary: Researchers have found that a compound produced by the body when dieting or fasting can block a part of the immune system involved in several inflammatory disorders such as type 2 diabetes,…

The biologically-based origin of the mammalian placenta (2)

The past is not the key to the present

See also: The biologically-based origin of the mammalian placenta I’ll preface this follow-up on the origins of the mammalian placenta with comments that attest to foolishness of theoretical physicists who try to link Big Bang cosmology to neo-Darwinian theories about…

  Is Evolution Predictable? Excerpt:  “…evolution is not really predictable because too many chance events can knock it off course.” My comment: Ecological variation predicts nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological, social, neurogenic, and socio-cognitive niche construction via conserved molecular mechanisms manifested in the…

Nutrition, pheromones and cancer (2)

edit1

See: Nutrition, pheromones and cancer Despite the inaccurate reporting of exeperimental evidence, the link from the nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled microRNA / messenger RNA balance is becoming clearer. Unfortunately, due to the inaccurate reporting, others may need to take the free course:…

Odors epigenetically effect differences in genetic predispositions

Physics

No two people smell the same Excerpt: “A difference at the smallest level of DNA—one amino acid on one gene—can determine whether you find a given smell pleasant. A different amino acid on the same gene in your friend’s body could…
