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…

Metabolism, fixation, health or neurodegerative disorder


“Shown is the location of the conserved regions encoding for the N-terminal chromo domain and the C-terminal MYST functional domain. An arrow denotes the position site of amino acid substitution E431Q.” Microarray Analysis Uncovers a Role for Tip60 in Nervous…

Ecological adaptations link bats to humans


  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)


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


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…

Epigenetic effects of viruses on cellular homeostasis


control of homeostasis by the epigenetic effects of proper nutrition and social stress inhibition might prevent our diet-driven and social stress-driven extinction.

Human pheromones, nutrition, DNA, epigenetics


Natural selection for a well-nourished conspecific that is reproductively fit is ensured via the epigenetic effects of nutrient chemicals and pheromones.
