  • Why Certain Plant Compounds May Mimic Dietary Restriction
    A new concept, called xenohormesis, has arisen to explain the mystery of why so many plant molecules interact with and modulate key regulators of our physiology in ways that are beneficial to our health (explained further in my video, Xenohormesis: What Doesn’t Kill Plants May Make Us Stronger).

  • How Humans Benefit From Stressed Plants
    Plants live the ultimate sedentary lifestyle—most of us usually think of plants more as objects than as organisms. Because plants can't move, they've had to evolve a whole other way to escape threats to their well-being. Plants can “sense and respond dynamically to all sorts of stimuli: chemical concentrations in the air and soil, water, […] (...more)

  • Hives from Tick Bite-Induced Meat Allergies
    In a previous video Alpha Gal and the Lone Star Tick, I started talking about a tick bite-induced meat allergy, called Alpha-Gal, that is unlike any other food allergy we know. The most interesting feature of the reactions may be that first symptoms can occur hours after eating meat. Normally, an allergic reaction to a […] (...more)

  • How a Tick Bite Can Lead to Food Allergies
    In the beginning, Aristotle defined two forms of life on planet Earth: plants and animals. Two thousand years later, the light microscope was invented and we discovered tiny, single-celled organisms like amoebas. Then, the electron microscope was invented and we discovered better characterized bacteria. Finally, in 1969, biologists recognized fungi (...more)

    Eating healthy whole foods is important—and so is paying attention to individual nutrients. Lately, though, that's become an unpopular thing to say.

    Helping people go vegan is great. But it's meaningless if we can't help them stay vegan. Last week, I wrote about how overhyping the benefits of a vegan diet can result in ex-vegans.

    This blog focuses "on issues related to both veganism and paleontology, my two biggest passions; I live by one and am working towards a master's degree in the other. It may seem a strange combination, but hopefully you'll come to see otherwise by reading this humble blog. In my mind, both subjects converge in their connection to issues of climate change, evolution, human health, and H. sapiens' impact and place in the web of life. I think you'll find that using those two concepts -- veganism and paleontology -- as lenses can be the key to a wide range of interesting and vitally important subjects; hence, the title of this blog.
