    Lack of optimism, enthusiasm, excitement and also ED

    Hi, despite being a fit and active 39-year-old, I've had a few issues that have plagued much of my adult life, namely: -erectile dysfunction (I've tested my NO levels, using strips and they are constantly low, despite taking L-arginine/Citrulline, which I've come to realise is unlikely to help...

    Parents’ Emotional Trauma May Change Their Children’s Biology

    Not a new idea, but the study is a nice summary of recent work in the area and demonstrates that the old gene-centric idea of inheritance is slowly being replaced by a much richer theory of how organisms interact with their environment and how they pass this information down to generations. It...

    Dads Pass On More Than Genetics In Their Sperm

    Another good study showing that our lifestyle choices directly affect our future children, despite what the morons in white coats keeps repeating. It has been known for years that dads in poorer health tend to beget more sickly children but the explanation had always been genetic - i.e. the dad...

    Genes Do Not Matter (again) - Individuality Is An Inevitable And Unpredictable Result Of Development

    I posted quite a few studies showing that genes do not matter much when it comes to determining the "fate" of the organism, be that health, personality or intelligence. This new study went a step further and examined the development of genetically identical organisms under the same environmental...

    The Neo-Darwinian Theory Of Evolution Is Incomplete Without Lamarck

    After decades of denial that environmentally-driven traits can be inherited, more and more prominent geneticist are calling for a major revision to the Neo-Darwinian theory of evolution. There is nothing modern about the so-called Modern Evolutionary Synthesis, and it needs to be revised or...

    Schizophrenia / Psychosis Linked To Traumatic Experience And Stress

    I have suspected this for a long time, but the official version to this day is that schizophrenia is primarily a gene-driven disease linked to a "misbehaving" cluster of about 300 genes. The fact that most of these genes are related to serotonin metabolism is considered, of course, irrelevant to...

    Epigenetics Probably Affects Long Term Evolution

    This article adds even more support to the importance of the epigenome over the genome. It's still a bit too early to make a definitive announcement. However, if the evidence stands that epigenetic changes are inherited for more than a few generations then epigenetics certainly affects long term...
