However I don't have a nebulizer, however I do have a diffuser that you put essential oils in and it blows them out into the air. I got the idea that this might work with baking soda, so I took about...

    Masks And CO2

    If you want to increase your CO2 simply wear a mask. Del Bigtree in the latest Highwire YouTube video measured the CO2 concentrations for various Covid-19 masks. All masks measured concentrations of 9000+ ppm after a few minutes. Normal concentrations without a mask are around 800 ppm. Wear a...

    The Coronavirus Seems To Be Sparing Populations At High Altitudes

    When tourists from Mexico, China and Britain became the first covid-19 fatalities in Cusco, Peru, it seemed as if the onetime capital of the Inca Empire might be headed for a significant outbreak. Nestled in a picturesque Andean valley, the high-altitude city of 420,000 residents, the gateway...

    Ray Peat On Carbon Dioxide

    Carbon dioxide protects nerves and muscles against excessive excitation. It inhibits lactic acid formation, and lipid peroxidation (measured in the blood) can be completely suppressed by a pC02 of about 90 mm, which isn't high enough to produce acidosis. Hospital respirators are normally set to...

    Humans Have A 'salamander-like' Ability To Regrow Cartilage

    The title says it all, but the study authors make the unfortunate/handicapped conclusion that while we may very well be able to regrow cartilage, we cannot regrow limbs. Well, multiple animal studies I posted in the last beg to disagree and point to both high metabolism and progesterone as...

    Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Therapy Reduces Belly Fat In Humans

    Finally some good news out of mainstream medicine! I am quite happy to see that the crucial role of carbon dioxide in health and metabolism is finally being recognized. This was a human study, which makes it even more relevant. Finally, given that belly fat is primarily driven by cortisol is...

    Cosmic Radiation Can Create Life-building Blocks From Ammonia & CO2

    Peat mentioned this in a few of his articles and the process of formation of basic amino acids from simpler chemicals is well-known. But up until now the "trigger" or "spark" of this process was not known. The study below shows that low-energy electrons from cosmic radiation can serve as that...

    Naked Mole Rats Do Not Age

    Many forum users are familiar with the naked mole rat. Peat has mentioned them a few times and we have a few other posts about them on the forum. They are highly resistant to cancer, and while the mainstream medical view is that this is due to their special genes the much more likely explanation...
