    Index of refraction PUFA

    I found this video very interesting, something we don't speak about much is the refraction of PUFA and how this influence cells communication, I know Peat spoke about cells potentially using light to communicate, its also interesting to think about infrared light and how PUFA influences it. It...

    Light exposure increases androsterone by 200% in males

    This is one of these good, old studies from the 30ies. They applied light to different body parts of depressed individuals and measured androsterone output afterwards. The light contained UV- and infrared light, similarly to sunlight: "...the spectrum of this lamp consists of 52% infrared...

    Vibrational Therapy Resource Page: Homeopathy, Flower & Gem Elixirs, Light, Color, Sound and Energy Healing (Please post books, resources & studies)

    article: New research suggests water remembers what has been dissolved in it, even after dilution beyond the point where no molecule of the original substances could remain. Dr. Mae-Wan Ho reports August 25, 2003 For more than a century, practitioners of homeopathy have used highly diluted...

    Is there an advantage to incandescent light over red light ? Dr. Peat seems to always recommend incandescent light

    I see that near-infrared light (incandescent light or light that is warm-colored - more orange/yellow light) is usually recommended over red light - does anyone know the specific reason for this ? I feel a metabolic boost from red light but I also feel like I get stressed - I know that stress...

    Why there is no such thing as children being afraid of the dark and why people like sleeping "under the covers"

    Why are night lights so popular especially among young children ? Why do people like laying "under the covers" while sleeping ? Because darkness increases serotonin and what decreases serotonin ? Being in a dimly lit room would decrease the serotonergic response from being in a pitch black...

    Using Thyroid Despite Normal Temps?

    I have normal(ish) temps: 96.8F (36C) when waking up and 98.42F (36.9) after a few hours plus eating, and my heart rate is usually 80-90 bpm. Im dealing primarily with intractable whole body pain (neuropathic, osteoarthritic etc...) of CNS/nervous origen. I also have marked elevations of lactic...

    Found A Way To Block ALL Blue Light On IPhone Easily

    I’m sure many of you iPhone users are aware of night shift which takes out some of the blue light, however imo it’s not enough. So I’m glad to learn there’s a way to completely get rid of blue light/color and I’ll show you how! (Before doing this, if you haven’t set up night shift, go into...

    Hair Stem Cells Activated Through The Eyes Processing Light?

    I thought this was kind of an interesting study. Saw a guy post it on HLT a week or two ago. Important note that it is a MOUSE study and just thinking about mice will make them grow hair. Anyway I think its worth a glance.

    Blue Light Accelerates Aging And Reduces Lifespan By More Than 50%

    In one of his interviews, Peat mentioned that red light exposure may be the most fundamental protective factor in nature, and that a deficiency of it (as commonly seen in Western lifestyles) may be the main driver of systemic aging and the diseases associated with it. The study below provides...

    Lack Of Light Exposure May Be The Main Cause Of The Myopia Boom

    As the study says, there has been a drastic increase in myopia cases over the last century. Early research pointed at excessive indoor book reading and studying as a cause of the epidemic. Unsurprisingly, these initial claims were quickly drowned by fake research denying that such a link exists...

    Vitamin B2 (FAD) (not Light) May Control The Circadian Clock

    Hopefully this won't spur another war on words as the previous discussion on the circadian clock. This study found that the coenzyme FAD (a derivative of riboflavin) control the circadian clock in a light-independent manner. To make the matters even more "metabolic" so to speak, the levels of...

    Bohmian Mechanics Validated Once Again

    I posted a number of threads on David Bohm and is "alternative" version of quantum mechanics (QM), which is deterministic and non-local (very long distance interaction) - i.e. properties of the world Peat has often written about, albeit more in the context of biochemistry and health. Bohmian...

    Bacteria Have Eyes

    Well, it is the entire bacteria actually that is an eye but still it is a pretty monumental discovery. I am waiting on a study that shows bacteria have emotions and then we can officially proclaim that the anthropomorphic principle is correct. Bacteria 'see' like tiny eyeballs - BBC News...

    Circadian Clock Obeys Metabolism/sugar, Not Light/genes

    This is an excellent study b/c it demonstrates the circadian clock, which is one of the bastions of genetics, is actually controlled by metabolism and, more importantly, by the availability of sugar as a food source. Good and predictable availability of food "stabilizes" the circadian clock as...

    Red Light And Circadian Cycle

    I read the interesting claim that red lights are used for night illumination because they are supposed to be safer in terms of interference on the circadian cycle. Is there any truth to that? What are some interesting implications? They give a bit more explanation:
