To breed healthy humans you need to understand what their native habitat and species appropriate diet is. Unfortunately, humans have strayed far, far away from their natural habitat and most people are not aware of what is a natural human diet or lifestyle. To have a healthy child you, the parents, need to have healthy hormones and low levels of inflammation. This is achieved through a species appropriate diet and maintaining appropriate circadian signaling via sunlight and darkness on eyes and skin every day.
- Have your children in your late teens or twenties.
- Before conception optimize hormones and circadian rhythms via sunlight and darkness at night
- Do not have any inflammatory/autoimmune disease
- Before conception ensure naturally made Vitamin D levels are over 60ng/ml
- Before, during and after conception have regular consumption of DHA and iodine rich seafood
- Always drink non fluoridated water.
- Before conception ensure menstrual cycles are regular and pain free.
- Always mitigate non-native EMFs in your environment including artificial light at night (ALAN)
- Before conception ensure the father has good sleep and circadian rhythms.
- Before conception ensure both parents are not leptin resistant (LR)
Human Health has Rapidly Declined in the last 130 Years
- Childhood Cancers
- Gut disfunction
- Skin diseases
- Eye diseases
- Suicide in all age groups and especially in children
- Mental illness
These are all new diseases that first appeared in the 20th Century and have increased exponentially in the last 70 years. The last 30 years have seen an even more rapid increase in infertility, autism, ADHD, mental health, neurodegeneration. Diseases that were considered diseases of the elderly in the 1950s are now being seen in young adults and children.
1 in 7 couples in the USA are now infertile.
These are all epigenetic diseases, not genetic diseases. These diseases develop when there is an environmental mismatch between our species and the lifestyle we live these days. Our lifestyle changed radically after the invention of the power grid and artificial light in 1874. People who worked outside came inside. People started illuminating their homes and the streets at night time. The first cases of neurodegeneration were described in the literature in 1901. Autism was not even described in the literature until the 1940’s in the USA. Now in Orange County, California one in every 33 boys has autism. No matter which way you try to skew your head you can not explain away those statistics with “increased awareness and diagnosis”. Something dreadful is happening to our children and most of them will not grow up to be doctors or scientists. Many of them will never even live independently.
Cancer was rare before 1900 and now it is the leading cause of death in most western countries. After the invention of radio frequency communications disease in humans really took off. The last 30 years has shown unprecedented increase in the decline of human health thanks to mobile phone towers and wifi in our homes, schools, workplaces. In the last thirty years mental illness in children has skyrocketed. In the USA today suicide is now the leading cause of death of young people under 25 years of age. That is a devastating new epidemic.
Imagine you have a flock of sheep and you adopted the new farming practice of keeping them indoors, under artificial light all day and night and never let them outside. You flood their new home with wifi and Netflix and they get to eat the new Craft SheepPhood derived from canola oil and GMO soy. They drink fluoridated water. How soon would it be before the sheep start to show signs of infertility, inflammation, disease, aggression? Would you question the environment the sheep are living in? Or would you just pay for pharmaceuticals and fertility treatments?
Major Factor in Epigenetic Diseases: Mitochondrial Disfunction
Mitochondria are the energy generating organelle in every cell of the body except red blood cells. Cells contain two sets of DNA; the nuclear genes you inherit from both parents and the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) that you inherit from your mother. Nuclear DNA is quite stable compared to mtDNA and true nuclear genome diseases are reasonably rare. The human nuclear genome has changed very little in the last 100 000 years.
Mitochondrial DNA detects environmental signals and changes cellular metabolism in response to those signals. When the signals are natural the cell grows appropriately. When the signals are unnatural the cell becomes diseased. Mitochondria can detect diseased cells and recycle them by autophagy or replace them by apoptosis when circadian rhythms are functional. When circadian rhythms are dysfunctional diseased cells remain and mitochondrial DNA collects mutations known as heteroplasmy. Mitochondria communicate with the nucleus to control gene expression. Nuclear gene expression is increased in times of growth and illness based on the flow of electrons and protons along the electron transport chain (ETC). In front of every nuclear gene is a CLOCK gene that links circadian rhythms to nuclear gene expression. This is how environmental signals result in epigenetic changes.
In biology we learn that mitochondria make ATP and this is “energy”. How ATP is energy is not very well described in formal education. Actually ATP is not the “energy”. The food you eat is broken down to electrons and protons and these are separated and fed through the ETC in the mitochondria to make three important things for a cell; ATP, deuterium depleted water (DDW) and infra red light. The ATP is used to unfold the water binding sites on proteins and the DDW is used to hydrate intracellular proteins and hydrophilic surfaces inside the cell. The infra red light is absorbed by the intracellular DDW to make an exclusion zone (EZ) of electrons and protons or it is released as free heat. This DDW absorbs IR light and forms liquid crystal structure around things in cells to convey energy and information via electrons and protons around the cell.
Electrons carry photons and these are the source of the energy and information in a cell. Sunlight photons vary daily, monthly and seasonally and this the information your cell uses to create circadian rhythms. The circadian rhythms control hormones and cellular growth and metabolism. The more ATP and DDW your mitochondria can make the healthier you will be. The two food sources of electrons and protons are from fats and carbohydrates. Fats make a lot more ATP and DDW, IR light than carbohydrates. When mitochondria decrease their production of ATP and DDW cells become dehydrated and inflammation signals are sent out via reactive oxygen species (ROS). These signals lead to repair and replacement of cells when your circadian rhythms are working well. When the signals are chronic and sleep is suboptimal disease will develop.
In females, the egg (oocyte) that made you was developed in the body of your maternal grandmother. Leptin is the hormone that selects the oocyte for fertilisation. Leptin is a circadian rhythm hormone that is destroyed by inflammation, artificial light at night (ALAN), non-native electromagnetic frequencies and eating after sunset. Leptin is made by morning sunlight in the eyes and skin. Leptin resistance leads to infertility and selection of less appropriate oocytes. This increases the likelihood of illness in offspring.
Females are less myelinated than males to absorb environmental signals and pass those on to offspring to optimise them to the environment they are born into. These signals are the native electromagnetic radiation of sunlight, darkness, temperature, seasons, magnetic field of the earth, food availability. This information is programmed via single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and single amino polymorphous (SAPs) that are epigenetic changes to DNA expression in the offspring. In human evolution, this made humans supremely adaptable to the different climates, diets and environments around the globe.
Life of Today
Today the dominant electromagnetic signals are not natural. Today people live 95% of their lives indoors where they are exposed to ALAN day and night and electromagnetic pollution from the power grid, communications, radar, TV, microwave and radio frequency radiation. People are told to avoid sunlight and so they can not make the daily hormones they need to have good circadian rhythms. This destroys their sleep and mitochondria and creates new diseases. Females tend to get more of these diseases, especially autoimmune diseases, because of their increased sensitivity to environmental signals.
Doug Wallace is has shown that mitochondrial heteroplasmy increases 10% every ten years.
Heteroplasmy is the collective damage to mitochondrial function and DNA (mtDNA) that accumulates naturally with ageing and also in response to broken circadian rhythms and non-native EMFs. Increased heteroplasmy leads to emergent diseases such as gut and skin problems, infertility, autoimmunity, autism, ADHD, cancer, mental illness and neurodegeneration. This is why you need to procreate when you are young because every decade you wait increases your chance of having suboptimal offspring even if you are healthy.
Melatonin is the hormone that maintains good mitochondrial health and this hormone is made via morning sunlight in the eyes and skin. Melatonin is released at night time after four hours of darkness when you are asleep. ALAN turns off melatonin and ruins regenerative sleep when mitochondria recycle and replace themselves and the cells they live in. Failure to get morning sunlight or darkness at night leads to poor sleep that does not regenerate cells. This leads to disease in you and your offspring.
Homo sapien sapiens first evolved on the East African rift and their ancestors had been there for 4 to 6 million years. This is an equatorial region with shallow coastal waterways, many fresh water lakes, strong magnetic fields from the tectonic plates of the earth and strong UV sunlight year round. Humans here had dark hair, skin and eyes and “tightly coupled mitochondria” that relied on the strong UV sunlight for energy generation. The melanin in their skin, hair and eyes is not just to protect against the UV radiation but more importantly to capture the UV radiation to provide more hydrogen for energy use in cells. Melanin is also an antioxidant free radical scavenger, especially in the skin. They lived naked in the sunlight from sunrise to sunset and slept on the earths strong magnetic field in darkness at night time. They ate a diet high in aquatic foods rich in DHA, iodine, iron, selenium and zinc in the daylight hours. This DHA and iodine allowed humans to build large brains and a complex immune system. This is our species appropriate diet.
When humans migrated away from the equator around 70 000 years ago they developed lighter hair, skin and eyes in response to the lower levels of UVB sunlight in seasonal variations. They evolved changes to their vitamin D receptors and mitochondrial function to cope with the lower light levels and colder temperatures. Their mitochondria became more “uncoupled” which allowed them to make more infra red heat and energy from high fat food electrons in winter time when carbohydrates do not grow and there is no UVB sunlight to make energy for cells via melanin.
Doug Wallace has identified the different mitochondrial haplotypes that evolved around the world. Tightly coupled haplotypes need more UVB sunlight to have good mitochondrial function. They do not do very well in high latitudes where there is less UVB sunlight. Uncoupled haplotypes are more adaptable to different climates and can do well anywhere provided they are connected to nature and not living indoors. Knowing your mitochondrial haplotype is informative as to the environment you and your offspring are most adapted to. You can learn your mitochondria haplotype via a genetic test such as the 23andMe DNA test.
Building a Brain
To build a baby’s brain, specific nutrients, sunlight and Vitamin D are required to make daily hormones and keep inflammation low.
DHA is an essential dietary fat for humans that is not burned for energy. DHA is a structural component of cell membranes that has signaling, electrical generation and antioxidant functions. DHA has direct epigenetic effects on gene expression via hormone production. A lack of DHA changes your gene expression. Humans require more DHA than any other mammal. We used it to build our large brains and complex immune systems and that is what sets us apart from our primate cousins with whom we share 98.2 % of our DNA.
When DHA is absent from the cell membranes it affects the formation of hormones, vitamin D and many other immune metabolites and decreases the energy that can be made in cells. DHA is an electron-rich PUFA that creates the electrical properties in a cell. Sunlight photons can only interact in the body via electrons. A lack of DHA decreases your ability to absorb the sunlight photons required for circadian clock signaling and metabolism. DHA is a fundamental structural component of human cells that facilitate the delivery of electrons to the electron transport chain of mitochondria.
DHA also has a vital immune-regulating role in keeping inflammation low via inhibition of NF Kappa beta. This is fundamental in maintaining leptin sensitivity in the brain and the production of all hormones including Vitamin D. Inflammation lowers thyroid hormone T3 that prevents the conversion of cholesterol to the steroid hormones and vitamin D.
DHA affects vitamin A and to make hormones you need vitamin A and T3 to convert cholesterol to pregnenolone. Thyroid hormones can not be made without iodine. DHA & iodine are essential for human hormone production and are both conveniently found in the marine seafood that we evolved eating. Pregnenolone is the precursor to sex hormones and Vitamin D when your inflammation is low. When your inflammation is high your pregnenolone makes the stress hormone cortisol INSTEAD of your sex hormones and Vitamin D. If you want to be fertile you must be making sex hormones not stress hormones.
A lack of DHA causes pre-eclampsia, smaller brain volume, lower intelligence, learning and behaviour problems, mental illness and neurodegeneration. DHA is absorbed by the gut and so gut disfunction impairs DHA absorption.
Pregnenolone is made from sulphated cholesterol and this requires exposure to UV and IR sunlight on the eyes and skin that brings blood vessels to the eye and skin surface so the blood cells can collect the sunlight signal that sulphates cholesterol. Cholesterol is also the pre-cursor to vitamin D. Cholesterol in the skin uses UVB sunlight to make Vitamin D. Vitamin D is not a vitamin but is rather a complex hormone system with global impacts on immune, bone, brain health, and it controls 3% of your nuclear genome.
Inflammation in the body impairs leptin sensitivity. Leptin is a photoreceptor hormone made from sunlight on the eyes and skin. Leptin is the master sensor of energy in the body and it controls ALL other hormones. Leptin selects oocytes for fertilisation based on the environmental signals it receives from your eyes and skin. This includes the earths magnetic field, sunlight, darkness, food availability, temperature. Leptin seeks to select the oocyte most suited to the environment that the child will be born into. Leptin resistance occurs when circadian signals are disrupted by ALAN, eating at night, non-native electromagnetic frequencies and not sleeping well in darkness after sunset. This leads to obesity or anorexia, inflammation, autoimmunity, hormone imbalance and many other diseases, especially of the skin and gut. Inflammation makes you leptin resistant and this ruins your hormones.
After conception, the developing fetus uses the mother’s stores of brain-specific nutrients especially DHA and Vitamin D and hormones to build and connect every cell in its body. The human central nervous system has a huge need for Vitamin D, DHA, iodine, iron, zinc and selenium and children of mothers who are deficient in these nutrients have smaller brains, learning and behaviour problems. Mothers suffer “baby brain” brain fog when the developing child is depleting them of these nutrients. They need to eat these nutrients regularly to avoid depriving themselves and their child of these essential nutrients. Females carrying female children are compromising the health of their grandchildren when they get this wrong.
Blue Light Effects on Mothers
Mothers who are blue light toxic sun avoiders become leptin resistant and are more likely to suffer morning sickness. Morning sickness confounds conventional medicine and they have zero clue why it happens. Babies born to mothers who suffered morning sickness are more likely to be born by C-section and have jaundice, colic, asthma and allergies. This is because the baby and the mother are lacking AM sunlight to make melatonin, especially in white blood cells. Morning sickness is a sign your baby has high mitochondrial heteroplasmy. The fetus makes the mother nauseous to induce fasting because fasting replaces poorly functioning mitochondria (mitophagy) in the mother and the developing child. To reverse this problem you need to get yourself into the morning sunlight to make melatonin and avoid ALAN to protect melatonin and circadian rhythms. Without a connection to circadian rhythms, the baby will not know when to be born and you might find yourself having a C-section at 42 weeks. Sunlight has blue light that reduces bilirubin that causes jaundice. Blue light in sunlight always comes with 42% red light. This is important. Having your jaundiced newborn treated with artificial lights that are high in blue and have no red will increase their risk of cancer, obesity and metabolic syndrome.
DHA supplements do not contain iodine, iron, selenium or zinc. These minerals are necessary for the assimilation of DHA into cell membranes. DHA from algal sources is not in the correct molecular configuration (SN2) to be absorbed by humans. DHA supplements are often oxidised because DHA is an unstable PUFA when it is outside its natural food source. Oxidised dietary fats are inflammatory. The natural food source is the only safe and fool proof way to obtain DHA.
Iodine is a critical element for human development and we need a constant dietary supply of it. Iodine makes thyroid hormones and these are critical in embryo development especially the development of the central nervous system, limbs, fingers and toes. Iodine helps to build neurons and is an anti-oxidant that protects the brain lipids from inflammation. Iodine is a supreme antioxidant in the body and especially protects DHA in cell membranes from oxidation and inflammation. Iodine is necessary to grow and mineralise bones. Iodine catalyses the formation of iodolactones from DHA and arachidonic acid to control cell growth in the brain and thyroid gland. Lack of iodine can cause tumors in the brain and thyroid as well as goiters. Iodine normalises progesterone and estradiol ratio to decrease estrogen dominance (PCOS). Severe iodine deficiency in the developing embryo leads to cretinism. Iodine deficiency also impairs ketosis and myelin formation on neural sheaths leading to multiple sclerosis (MS) or hearing and acoustic defects due to nerve and bone defects. Fluorine inactivates iodine. Iodine is most abundant in shellfish, coastal plants, algae and seaweed. The next best source is eggs. Meat and nuts are moderate sources. Iodine is absorbed by specific transporters in the gut cells so if your gut is diseased you will not absorb iodine well.
Iron is an essential mineral in heme molecules. The mitochondrial electron transport chain is made of heme molecules. Red blood cells are also made of heme molecules. Red blood cells carry oxygen to the mitochondrial electron transport chain to make energy for life. Iron deficiency anemia is a serious problem for brain function because it requires so much oxygen. Iron is a co-factor for the formation of brain neurotransmitters dopamine and GABA. Iron deficiency is a leading cause of learning and behaviour problems in children and mental illness and neurodegeneration in adults because it compromises oxygen delivery and mitochondrial energy generation. Iron also facilitates thyroid hormone function and is vital for temperature control. So if you are a cold frog vegan then you might want to improve your iron and iodine consumption before you have a child. Iron is most easily absorbed from seafood and meat via gut cells. Gut disfunction impairs iron absorption.
Zinc is critical in infant brain development and is concentrated in the hippocampus. The hippocampus is where new neurons and connections are made via learning. Zinc deficiency is highly associated with autism spectrum disorders because it impairs this particular part of the brain most. Zinc is required to use DHA to build cell membranes and this is especially crucial in the developing brain. Zinc is a cofactor for norepinephrine, testosterone, estrogen production in the brain. This is critical in specialisation of the brain and the development of the sexual organs from female to male and affects other hormones like insulin, leptin and adiponectin that are sexually dimorphic. Zinc deficiency is the likely cause of sexual dysmorphia which is increasing in incidence. Zinc deficiency can result in reduced immune function, poor wound healing and bone mineralisation. Zinc is most abundant in shellfish, seafood and meat.
Selenium is needed for proper immune function and is critical in brain function in two ways. The first is the formation of glutathione peroxidase which is an antioxidant that protects cell membranes from DHA lipid and glycation damage. Selenium is essential for the assimilation of iodine in thyroid metabolism. Selenium is also required for hemoglobin production. Selenium protects against cancer via the p53 gene especially in the gut. Selenium deficiency results in less oxygen delivery and more inflammation due to oxidative damage. Selenium is most abundant in shellfish, seafood and less so in meat.
Copper is an essential dietary mineral that helps to form hemoglobin and collagen and it participates in many enzymatic reactions particularly antioxidant protection of cell membranes and myelin. Copper is a co-factor for iron absorption from the gut. Copper regulates neurotransmitters and helps to form dopamine so can result in learning, behaviour and mental illness problems. Copper is also a cofactor in mitochondrial cellular respiration. Copper deficiency can result in anemia, less energy generation in mitochondria and poor immune function. Copper deficiency decreases melanin formation which decreases your ability to absorb UV sunlight for energy generation and anti-oxidant effects in the mitochondria. Copper is found most abundantly in shellfish, squid and crayfish. The only decent animal source is offal which most people don’t eat anymore.
Magnesium is hydrophilic and when non-native EMFs and ALAN dehydrate cells magnesium is lost. Magnesium is also lost when mitochondria make less intracellular water. Magnesium and Vitamin D deficiency always occur together because the cellular reaction to make vitamin D in the skin uses intracellular water that mitochondria make. If your vitamin D is low despite sun exposure then you know your cells are dehydrated.
B vitamins are all chromophore photoreceptor molecules that absorb blue light to emit their electrons in the methionine cycle and methylation of DNA. B vitamins evolved to be programmed by the morning sunlight that has a strong blue signal. Blue light in sunlight is never without 42% red light and this needs to be present to generate appropriate signals. Artificial light has a high blue colour temperature and no red. This blue light liberates Vitamin A from melanopsin to destroy photoreceptors locally and eventually globally. This destroys the B vitamins. A constant dietary food source of B vitamins is necessary when exposed to artificial light.
Vitamin B12 is essential to maintain sheathes around nerve fibres and it also activates another B vitamin, folic acid. B vitamins are photoreceptors that participate in many cellular processes. B vitamins are also most abundant in shellfish and seafood and in meat. Gut disfunction interferes with the assimilation of B vitamins.
So you can see that to build and maintain a human baby you need sunlight, darkness, Vitamin D, DHA, iodine, selenium, iron, copper, zinc, B vitamins and all of these nutrients are abundant in seafood and less abundant in meat. Seafood is the species appropriate food because we have used all of the nutrients and minerals in seafood to build our large brains and immune system. Raw seafood is the most nutrient dense food and it has positive effects on normalising oestrogen hormones. Without species appropriate food humans get suboptimal offspring, infertility and disease. Autism is a neurodevelopmental epigenetic disease that is increasing in incidence and is prevalent in western countries where diets are lacking brain specific nutrients. In adults the result of these deficiencies is mental illness and neurodegeneration.
Naturally Made Vitamin D
Humans make sulphated vitamin D3 from sulphated cholesterol in the skin using IR and UVB sunlight when calcium is normal in blood and melatonin is present locally in skin cells. This form of vitamin D reflects the suboptimal solar radiation and facilitates the absorption of the UV and IR light that build the DC electric current in cells. You do not get that effect from Vitamin D absorbed via the gut.
Humans do not require large amounts of dietary vitamin D because we have the ability to make it more efficiently and effectively in the skin. The vitamin D made in the skin has different and more diverse functions to the vitamin D absorbed in the gut. Very few foods actually contain vitamin D naturally and this form of vitamin D is unsulphated. This form of vitamin D regulates calcium homeostasis in the blood. Low vitamin D causes you to absorb less calcium from the gut.
The advice to avoid sunlight and take supplements is nonsensical because it overloads the body with unsulphated dietary vitamin D. This is will negatively affect calcium homeostasis. Vitamin D supplements are not sulphated by sunlight and can result in toxicity because in nature it is available in only small amounts in the diet. Sulphated vitamin D made in the skin can never be toxic and its photoproducts, that are made by the sunlight interaction, have multiple immune functions. The body stores this form of excess vitamin D when levels are above 40 ng/ml using the Vitamin D Binding Protein. Levels need to be at least 60 ng/ml to see you through a winter when UVB is absent or a pregnancy.
The vitamin D in supplements cannot be metabolised to the photoproducts lumisterol, tachysterol, toxisterol that have immune functions. Exposure to UVB sunlight produces these essential photoproducts that protect the skin microbiome, regulate skin cell growth and activate immune cells. This is how sunlight on skin protects you from skin cancer and skin infections. When you live indoors or at a high latitude when UVB is absent for long periods of time you increase your chances of autoimmune and skin diseases as well as skin cancer. All of these diseases are more prevalent at high latitudes and indoor workers.
Sulphated vitamin D directs the formation of neuroectoderm in the embryo via noggin. Neuroectoderm forms the skin and the central nervous system. The skin and the brain connect via DHA, the vitamin D receptor and the Vitamin A receptor.
Vitamin D made with cholesterol in sunlight decreases LDL cholesterol and increases HDL to protect the heart. This form of vitamin D does not interfere with calcium homeostasis. Vitamin D is a renin inhibitor that acts to reduce blood pressure. Vitamin D increases adioponectin to protect against leptin resistance and obesity.
Vitamin D has an important role in cellular immunity. T & B lymphocytes require activation by sunlight and then they express a vitamin D receptor. In the gut T cells in the brush border quickly become dysfunctional to cause leaky gut when they are not activated by sunlight. Avoiding the sun increases your chances of developing leaky gut and autoimmune disease.
When people avoid UVB sunlight they do not make sulphated vitamin D from cholesterol and this causes unsulphated LDL cholesterol to rise in the blood plasma, along with an increase in retinal binding protein and a decrease in vitamin B2 (riboflavin). This slows metabolic cycles in the mitochondria and reduces your ability to clear heavy metals.
Vitamin D has endocrine functions and controls 3% of the nuclear genome, including the expression of the E-cadherin gene which is a on/off switch for cancer.
Vitamin D is necessary for proper placental development.
Diseases associated with vitamin D levels under 30ng/ml:
Rickets, osteomalacia, psoriasis, hypocalcemia, seizures, muscle tetanus and heart failure in the newly born, osteoporosis, osteopenia, cancer of all types, heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, osteo and rheumatoid arthritis, mental illness of all types, chronic pain, muscle weakness, radiation poisoning, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, multiple sclerosis and most other autoimmune diseases.
The Importance of a Healthy Microbiome
Human evolution included the co-evolution of various colonies of diverse species of specific microbes that live on the eyes, skin, mouth, gut, genital-urinary tract and the lung. These microbes facilitate immune function and nutrient absorption and keep these organs, and the entire body free from infection. The microbiome on all of these surfaces is affected by light. Sunlight keeps them healthy and artificial light decreases the diversity of species and increases your chances of infection. Mothers give their babies their microbiome and this sculpts their immune system.
The gut microbiome strips hydrogen (H+) and sulphate from animal amino acids in the food you eat which should be during the sunlight hours. The gut microbiome makes over a litre of sulphated hydrogen gas per day and the amount it makes is determined by the sunlight signal on the eyes and skin. The microbiome releases light and nitric oxide (NO) to the gut cells to increase blood flow to collect the nutrients. The microbiome keeps the gut cells healthy and provides immune system education for the body.
Artificial light and non-native EMFs simplify the gut microbiome because it causes melanopsin/retinol disfunction and calcium efflux, free radical generation in gut cells. Diets high in refined carbohydrates and industrial seed oils also simplify the gut flora. When the diversity of species in the gut decreases certain species become more prevalent and they can release bacterial toxins called lipopolysaccharides (LPS) that cause leptin levels to rise. This can eventually cause leptin resistance, obesity and inflammation. You will pass these on to your offspring during childbirth.
Consumption of raw seafood favours the production of a form of oestrogen called estriol (E3) by the gut flora. This form of oestrogen is secreted normally during pregnancy to protect the foetus from cancer during the rapid growth phases. Raw seafood consumption will limit the production of estradiol and estrone which is advantageous to women as they age to prevent the formation of breast cancer. The regular consumption of raw or undercooked seafood is why Asian women have lower rates of breast cancer compared to western women.
The gut microbiome species change during pregnancy in response to the increased levels of progesterone. Women with low progesterone and high cortisol due to leptin resistance will have a more obesogenic microbiome and during pregnancy, will put on more weight and are at a higher risk of gestational diabetes. These inflammatory epigenetic signals are passed on to offspring affecting their development in utero and for the rest of their lives. Females need to ensure their hormones and microbiome are optimal before conception.
The gut microbiome facilitates the absorption of the brain specific nutrients by keeping gut cells working efficiently. The microbiome provides us with vitamin K2.
The vaginal microbiome also changes during pregnancy with pregnant women having more lactobacillus species that the child will use as protection against infection and to aid digestion. The vaginal microbiome of the mother is passed to the child during childbirth. Breastfeeding and skin contact also provide microbe seeding for the newborn child. The microbiome of children born by C-section is radically different to vaginally born children for the rest of their lives. If they are unlucky enough to miss out of breast milk too their immune system and microbiome are compromised further.
Drink Non-Fluoridated Water
Fluoride is a dielectric blocker that reduces the dielectric constant of the water inside you. Water inside you is not just sloshing around. It has a specific role in capturing and transforming energy via the development of the EZ that separates negatively charged electrons and positively charged protons to form a battery using IR and UV sunlight. This creates the dielectric constant in water inside and outside of a cell. This facilitates the energy you can deliver to your mitochondria. When mitochondria make less energy your inflammation goes up and your hormones and gene expression are changed. This reduces the DC electric current that your cell membranes need to develop to transfer energy and information around the body. This is especially important to a foetus who is floating in tank of water called the womb.
Circadian Rhythms are Paramount
Get your eyes and skin into the sunlight, eat during the daylight and sleep in darkness
The conventional health advice to avoid sunlight is utterly ridiculous and the most dangerous thing you can do for your health and the health of your offspring. The studies that linked UV light to skin cancer were done using artificial UV light. UV in sunlight is never without the other frequencies of sunlight and we evolved to use all of these frequencies of light.
Humans are diurnal animals. That means we evolved to eat and move during the sunlight and sleep at night during darkness. Photoreceptors in our eyes, skin, subcutaneous (SQ) fat, arterioles evolved to respond to the all the hourly, daily, monthly and seasonally varying frequencies of sunlight that change biochemical processes in the body. Every single colour of sunlight has a role in your physiology. Sunglasses, sunscreen, artificial tan, makeup, tattoos, clothing block your ability to absorb the sunlight information your brain and hormones need to function. Artificial light changes your biochemistry and the biochemistry of your offspring.
Sunlight on the skin causes the release of nitric oxide (NO) that dilates capillaries to bring blood to the retina and skin surface to collect sunlight. This lowers blood pressure. Haemoglobin absorbs UV and IR sunlight. IR light makes the exclusion zone in water in the blood and CSF and UV extends it to increase the energy and information in the electrons and protons that are delivered to mitochondria. Sunlight controls the voltage gates on RBC, platelets and WBC to affect viscosity and clotting.
Sunlight increases sulphated vitamin D3, histamine and sulphydryl groups and lowers via photolysis adrenaline, steroids, testosterone, estrogen, thyroid hormones, DNA and RNA expression. Breasts and men’s genitals are external to the body for a reason. They are meant to be in the sunlight. Blue light increases sex steroid release and combined with a lack of sunlight that does not turn them off you get estrogen dominance problems like melasma, PCOS, breast and prostate cancer.
Eating at night releases insulin and cortisol and causes the gut microbiome to release light to our gut cells. This turns off melatonin in the gut cells. This stops gut cells from replacing themselves every 24-48hrs and leads to gut disfunction. Gut disfunction impairs absorption of nutrients even if you eat them. Gut disfunction creates inflammation. Inflammation down regulates your sex hormones. Gut disfunction is usually the first step on the chronic disease ladder. Insulin stops leptin binding its receptor in the brain at night time during sleep to cause leptin resistance.
Blue light in sunlight always has 42% red and varying levels of UVA and UVB throughout the day and seasonally depending on your latitude and altitude. All these frequencies are used as circadian signals to control cell growth, metabolism, recycling and removal. Red light is healing due to its effects on hydrogen. Artificial light is abnormally high in blue, has no red, and stimulates cancer in melanin-producing cells. It also causes the death of retinal pigmented epithelial cells (RPE) in the retina that communicates light information to the brain. This stops your brain from being able to keep track of circadian rhythms. This is how tech addiction in Japan has led to “celibacy syndrome”.
Sunlight is a natural calcium channel blocker in the skin. Full spectrum sunlight makes POMC. POMC makes alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone that stimulates melanocytes to make melanin. Blue light over stimulates melanocytes that can lead to cancer when melatonin is not made from AM sunlight and released at night time darkness because lack of melatonin turns off apoptosis.
Darkness is the daily signal that is missing from modern human life. After sunset, we are meant to be in darkness to facilitate the release of leptin, prolactin, melatonin, growth hormone when we sleep.
Leptin: The Master Hormone
Leptin is a photoreceptor hormone in SQ fat and suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) in the brain. The SCN is the brain clock that controls all the CLOCK genes in the body. Every gene in your nuclear DNA has a CLOCK gene in front of it. Nuclear DNA expression depends on the light detected on the eyes and skin. It couples optical data from skin to brain to control all growth and metabolism in the body via circadian release of hormones made by AM sunlight on the eye and skin. The leptin receptor “counts” the protons and electrons in the body to determine what the energy requirements are and coordinate the release of appropriate hormones to change epigenetic gene expression. Leptin needs melatonin and DHA in the eye and liver to function. Melatonin is made via AM sunlight in the eyes and skin.
Leptin resistance is caused by artificial light and late night eating due to the release of free retinal from melanopsin destroying the leptin photoreceptor in the hypothalamus of the SCN. Leptin resistance depletes DHA from cell membranes first in the eye and liver and then globally. Leptin resistance induces changes in ROS and catalase to inhibit JAK2/STAT3 gene expression. Obesity, anorexia, metabolic syndrome, diabetes are examples of disease from leptin resistance.
Leptin is made by white fat cells and it travels in the blood to bind various receptors in the brain, mostly in the hypothalamus. Different receptors mediate different aspects of leptin effects in the brain and the rest of the body. The more fat stored in the fat cell the more leptin is released and when it binds receptors in the brain it suppresses appetite and glucose production in the liver. It also influences insulin and dopamine in the brain. This affects mood and mental health. Leptin’s many diverse impacts on the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system and the endocrine system depend on the ability of the brain receptors to bind leptin.
You first get leptin from the colostrum in breastmilk. If your mother’s leptin is suboptimal or you do not get breastmilk you are very likely to become obese because your brain has lost the ability to keep track of your energy status.
Leptin controls fertility in women because to grow a new human you need control over hormones and energy metabolism. Leptin controls oocyte selection and maturation and placental formation and growth. If the mother has dodgy leptin levels then oocytes are not matured appropriately and the placenta does not grow properly to support optimal growth of the fetus. This can result in recurrent miscarriages and a huge variety of epigenetic abnormalities in the growing fetus.
Leptin controls the progesterone made by the placenta and this directly affects neuron development and synaptic connections in the fetus. Progesterone, Vitamin D and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) all work together to create and connect neurons in the central nervous system of the fetus. This mechanism is thought to be compromised in autism, dyslexia and ADHD. Vitamin D and BDNF are both made from sun exposure. These are examples of the epigenetic effects of hormone disturbance on offspring.
Leptin also controls and modulates the immune system in the brain and inflammatory cytokines in visceral fat. Leptin resistance occurs when brain receptor cells no longer recognise the leptin signal due to it being chronically elevated or leptin being destroyed by freed retinol from artificial light. Leptin resistance results in infertility, PCOS, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, obesity/anorexia, thyroid disease, autoimmunity, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, degenerative disc disease, adrenal fatigue.
After 4 hours of darkness leptin levels rise and around midnight it enters the hypothalamus and binds its receptor. It then upregulates T3 production to stimulate uncoupling proteins in muscle mitochondria to burn fat whilst we sleep. This provides the cell with lots of ATP and DDW. This requires leptin sensitivity and thyroid hormones. Leptin also stimulates the release of prolactin between midnight and 2am. Prolactin controls the sleep stages 2 to 4. This is when melatonin facilitates autophagy and mitophagy to recycle cells whilst we sleep. If you eat after sunset or expose yourself to ALAN or you lack iodine to make thyroid hormones you miss out on all of these regenerative cellular processes. You will not release cortisol well at sunrise to wake you up. Your growth hormone will not be released and all of the other daily hormones will not be made at the correct times of the day. This decreases muscle mass to cause obesity and inflammatory signals.
Artificial light is detected by photoreceptors in the eyes and skin and it turns off melatonin and leptin to ruin sleep and cellular regeneration. Chronic exposure to artificial light destroys ALL photoreceptors in the body via melanopsin/Vitamin A disfunction. This stops you from being able to absorb the sunlight you need to make your hormones. ALAN causes insulin resistance, lowers sex steroid hormones, destroys vitamin D levels and alters the gut flora so they don’t make enough vitamin K2. Chronically lowered K2 induces further insulin resistance and diabetes.
Food is Sunlight Information for Your Mitochondria
All food is broken down to electrons and protons that are fed through the electron transport chain of your mitochondria to make energy for life. Food electrons carry photons from the sunlight they grew in. Carbohydrates grow in strong sunlight and the electrons from this food carry those photons of light to cytochrome I in your mitochondria to tell it that it is summer time or you live at the tropics. This light must match the sunlight signal you are getting on your eyes and skin for proper daily and seasonal release of reactive oxygen signaling molecules.
In winter time, when carbohydrates do not grow, the human diet is naturally higher in marine and animal protein and fats because that is all that is locally available unless you live at the equator. Electrons from fats carry lower energy photons and these go to cytochrome II to release reactive oxygen signals that correspond with a ketotic diet and lack of UVB sunlight and lower vitamin D levels. Fats provide three times more hydrogen (H+) to the electron transport chain than carbohydrates do. This must correspond with the temperature and sunlight signals in the eye and skin for seasonal circadian rhythm response. This keeps inflammation low. These are the adaptations that “uncoupled” mitochondrial haplotypes evolved when they migrated away from the equator to colder climates. Humans who live in air-conditioned comfort and eat imported bananas are creating a circadian mismatch in their mitochondria that they will pass on to their children.
People think that if they eat fat they will burn fat and this is the basis of the popularity of the ketogenic diet. However, the food you eat does not determine what fuel your mitochondria chooses. Mitochondria decide what fuel to use based on the light signals they get from your eyes and skin via leptin. Mitochondria burn fat at night time when you get proper regenerative sleep in darkness. When the light signal is artificial light which high in blue it chooses carbohydrate electrons because that is the summertime light signal in sunlight. Mitochondria did not evolve to use artificial light. Artificial light leads to metabolic diseases.
Non-native EMFs upregulate glucose metabolism no matter what you eat. This also prevents ketotic fat burning to make lots of DDW and ATP. This dehydrates cells and lowers the energy you can generate. When you are an obligate glucose burner you become susceptible to the Warburg shift that is associated with cancer. Ketones are the preferred fuel for building a babies brain and the baby takes the fat from the mother’s hips and buttocks if the mother is able to burn fat.
Humans who eat processed carbohydrates year round are telling their mitochondria it is summer time all the time. This uncouples circadian signals in the eye, skin and gut. This ruins hormones and sleep. Sleep is when your cells and mitochondria regenerate to replace old cells and remove cancer cells and misfolded proteins. Humans live under artificial light and artificial temperatures and cover their eyes and skin from sunlight with clothing, sunscreen, sunglasses. They can not make and release the hormones they need at the right times of the day and night because they are leptin resistant. This decreases fertility and increases chronic disease. If you do manage to get pregnant your offspring will carry the circadian mismatch you have been living with because it is programmed via your hormones and your hormones control the growth of the fetus.
The placenta is controlled by progesterone and leptin. Together they coordinate the depletion of fats, DHA, iodine, Vitamin D from the mother’s stores to grow the fetus over 9 months. If the mother is depleted of these things before pregnancy the child will suffer poor neurological development. If inflammation is high pregnenolone is converted to cortisol rather than progesterone. If there is leptin resistance then energy partitioning from the mother to the fetus is impaired and the baby suffers poor growth and development. This can make the baby grow too large inside the womb. This is why cesarean sections are increasingly necessary in a world where so many mothers have suboptimal health when they get pregnant.
Have you ever wondered why human babies are so fat and immature compared to primate babies? They burn their fat to myelinate their brain cells during rapid growth spurts after birth. Breastmilk is also ketotic for that reason and human babies are meant to be breastfed for 3 to 5 years. Fat burning requires leptin sensitivity. Ketones are the main substrate for lipid formation in brain cells. Babies and children are more sensitive to environmental EMFs including the nnEMFs. This can turn off fat burning in your baby to impair their brain myelination. You might want to rethink those wireless baby monitors, wireless toys and all the wifi in your house.
The Native Electromagnetic Fields are the Earth and the Sun
Living cells evolved to detect the native electromagnetic fields of the earth and the sun and we use those signals vary daily and seasonally to regulate cellular metabolism via calcium and magnesium. The magnetic field of the earth ranges from 0.25 – 0.65 gauss and varies daily, seasonally and by location around the globe. The earth has an extremely low, non-pulsed, resonant electromagnetic frequency of between 3 and 60 hertz called the Schumann resonance. This also varies daily, seasonally and is affected by lightning, solar storms and weather patterns. The Schumann resonance affects hydrogen bonding in water molecules inside our cells. Cells are 71% water molecules. Water surrounds all proteins, DNA and RNA. Mitochondria make DDW and this water absorbs the native frequencies to change cellular metabolism. The thalamus in the brain connects to the earth’s magnetic field via resonance to tune the alpha waves of the brain. This is achieved when your bare feet are on the earth.
Non-native electromagnetic radiation invented by humans blocks the native signals and creates alien signals to our cells particularly in the hydrogen bonding of water molecules. Non-native EMFs activate voltage-gated ion channels on our cells to release calcium and this increases free radical production and leads to intracellular dehydration, magnesium loss and inflammation. This can affect any or all of the organs in the body. Dehydration depletes cells of energy and information. Inflammation turns off melatonin, leptin and all other hormones. This affects mitochondrial function, immune cells and sleep. Females evolved to be more sensitive to these environmental signals to pass that information on to offspring. If the electromagnetic fields are unnatural it will have effects on your fetus because it changes the hormones that direct the development of the child. What effects this has will be very individual. It may be autism, ADHD, childhood cancer, autoimmune disease or many other diseases.
Calcium Modulated Protein (Calmodulin) is the messenger activated by non-native EMFs and this protein affects inflammation, metabolism, apoptosis, smooth muscle contraction, intracellular movement, short and long term memory and the immune response. This is how metabolic syndrome, autoimmunity, cancer and neurodegeneration develop. This is how some people can develop all of those diseases in their lifetime. These are all neolithic diseases that have become rampant in the last 130 years.
Autism is a neuroimmune spectrum disease in babies and children that was first described in medical literature in the 1940s in the USA. The incidence and prevalence of autism is in western countries and is still unheard of in traditional hunter-gather communities; until they migrate to a western country and then their incidence is the same as ours within one generation. This tells us that the environment in western societies is causing this epigenetic disease in children.
In western countries, the industrial revolution in 1760 to 1840 brought outdoor workers inside. The power grid came into use in the 1880s. This operates with alternating (AC) electric currents (50 or 60 hertz) and creates corresponding magnetic fields (up to 50 gauss). This allowed people to stay up after sunset using their brand new artificial lights. Electric power lines, wiring, appliances and indoor lighting all emit electric and magnetic fields. From 1919 to the 1950s there was the deployment of radio and television using radio frequencies between 3-300 megahertz. This also brought people indoors for leisure time. Radio frequencies have electric and magnetic fields. Radar was first deployed in WWII and today uses radio frequencies 3 megahertz to 300 gigahertz. This technology is used in weather, aviation, maritime, military, emergency services.
In the 1980s mobile phone technology began using 894 megahertz and today 5 G is using 6 -300 gigahertz. Wifi (900 megahertz to 60 gigahertz) was introduced for sale in 1997. Bluetooth (2.4 gigahertz) on phones, appliances and in cars from 1999. In the mid-2000s Smart Meters (900 megahertz to 60 gigahertz of pulsed radiation) began to be installed on homes to measure electricity, gas and water. LED screens in TVs in 2009. The Internet of Things (IoT) since 2012 introduces wearable devices and connectivity of a huge range of appliances, equipment, toys…anything really. This uses 100 megahertz to 5.8 gigahertz. Collectively these unnatural electromagnetic frequencies are polluting our environment because they are trapped in the ionosphere of the earth. This affects every living thing on the planet.
1 hertz = 1 cycle per second
1 megahertz = 1 million cycles per second
1 gigahertz = 1 billion cycles per second
1 tetrahertz = 1 trillion cycles per second
The calcium efflux caused by non-native EMFs opens up the blood-brain barrier and the gut barrier and decreases the DC electric current on cells that change signaling to immune cells, microglia and oligodendroglia, in the brain. This creates inflammation and dysfunctional T and B cells leading to autoantibodies. The inflammation depletes neuro-hormones creating pregnenolone steal syndrome to alter melatonin, cortisol, thyroid hormones, Vitamin A and D cycles. This makes LDL rise but you can’t convert LDL to pregnenolone without T3 and Vitamin A so there is a massive inflammatory response and the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system are affected. If this happens during certain times in embryologic development the result can be Hashimoto’s or celiac disease. If it happens after the 8th embryologic week it can affect the development of the hind brain and dentate nucleus in the cerebellum and can result in autism spectrum disorder.
Nonnative EMFs affect the hydrogen bonding networks in intracellular water. This dehydrates cells and changes the energy and information that intracellular water can deliver to mitochondria. Females and children under 25 years are less myelinated than adult males and so they absorb more nonnative electromagnetic radiation and develop more autoimmunity than males. Females pass these aberrant signals on to their offspring. If you are born with mitochondrial heteroplasmy and you live your life indoors, avoiding sunlight, exposed to ALAN and nonnative EMFs then you may never myelinate your central nervous system. This explains why younger and younger people today are developing MS, mental illness, addiction and suicide. You don’t want to live when you can’t sleep or make hormones appropriately.
People today think we are so advanced with our knowledge and technology but our health statistics show we are in deep trouble. We are de-evolving and heading towards the 6th extinction and most people have no clue they are being slowly boiled in a pot of microwave radiation and artificial light. Should you take pharmaceuticals, have fertility treatments and keep scrolling through social media all night?
If you want to optimise the health of your offspring you need to optimise your own health first, eat a species appropriate diet and live connected to nature, not Netflix. Your skin is a solar panel for sunlight. Sunlight is not bad for you but artificial light is.
