Startup Promises More HP, Better MPG, And Less Car Engine Wear

There’s an interesting t startup on Kickstarter that’s promising more horsepower, better miles per gallon, and less wear on your engine. The product is called TriboTEX. For more information check out their Kickstarter campaign: You fund them, they will ship immediately. TriboTEX has 300 packages on hand, ready to go.

Users of TriboTEX will get the full benefits of the product in about 500 miles or two tanks of gas.

TriboTEX Kickstarter

The research for TriboTEX started all the way back in August 2009. In February 2017 the Kickstarter was launched.

Technology Behind TriboTEX

“It’s like ceramic protective coatings used in some of high-performance engines, but it reduces friction 10X BETTER than engine oil alone. In engine tests we discovered that:

– Fuel economy performance increased by 6-8% in a car with 130K+ miles with compression going up.

– Cylinders in your engine form a film that is thicker in a transverse direction, As a result, ellipticity decreases and compression increases. So engine “repair” itself as the TriboTEX coating goes to work.

– Engine noise drops dramatically. On idle your engine noise will be so low, your neighbors may not even hear your car in the AM and your mechanic will hear your injectors as dominant source of a noise.

– Easily adds 3%+ more power under your hood without disassembly”

What Won’t Product Do?

– “It will not ruin your catalytic converter on newer cars like other oil additives (ZDDP), Pollute the environment because all TriboTEX ingredients are environmentally friendly. Leave you wondering “if it’s working”. You’ll feel & hear it as soon as 15 minutes after, due to coating in journal bearings while performance boost will come later when your cylinders get coated.”


“We’ve been awarded over $1,033K+ in grants from the National Science Foundation and other agencies to conduct research and make our material in large production quantities. Now we need you to bring TriboTEX to life in your vehicle.”

New Type Of Light Found

I saw this article yesterday on CNN. So interesting! Here is the full article: Wanted to share this with my audience in case you didn’t hear about this.

Ireland researchers have reported that they discovered a “new form” of light, and say that their discovery “will impact our understanding of the fundamental nature of light.” The discovery was published in the scientific journal “Science Advances.”

“What I think is so exciting about this result is that even this fundamental property of light, that physicists have always thought was fixed, can be changed.”

Eastham suggested that the discovery could have implications for telecommunications and privacy.

Turmeric: The Healthy Wonder Spice

Turmeric: The Healthy Wonder Spice

In an article by world-renowned holistic doctor, Andrew Weil, MD, entitled, 3 Reasons to Eat Turmeric, under the heading, What is Turmeric? He states:

“Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a culinary spice that spans cultures – it is a major ingredient in Indian curries, and makes American mustard yellow. But evidence is accumulating that this brightly colored relative of ginger is a promising disease-preventive agent as well, probably due largely to its anti-inflammatory action.”

The article goes on to state that, “…turmeric appears to outperform many pharmaceuticals in its effects against several chronic, debilitating diseases, and does so with virtually no adverse side effects.”

The Turmeric Extract Curcumin Found to Reduce Symptoms of Anxiety and Depression in a Recent Study Out of Australia

A randomized, double-blind study of the benefits of turmeric/curcumin as it applies to anxiety and depression recently backed up the results of former studies that showed the effectiveness of the turmeric extract in functioning as an anxiolytic. Dr. Adrian Lopressor, who headed up the research study at Murdoch University in Australia, said:

“Curcumin’s positive antidepressant and anti-anxiety effects are likely due to its ability to normalize specific physiological pathways. It appears to elevate neurotransmitters such as serotonin, while lowering stress hormones, such as cortisol, and is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Curcumin also provides protection to the brain.”

Speaking of protecting the brain, it seems that multiple studies have shown that the turmeric/curcumin extract is almost a wonder spice/herb. Of its many amazing benefits, the following are sited:

Anxiety and Depression

Alzheimer’s Disease

Heart Disease





Studies have now revealed that what seems to account for the multiple health benefits found in the turmeric/curcumin extract are due in large part to its very strong and powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

It should be noted that the curcumin found in turmeric, although extremely low in weight, is what mostly accounts for the health benefits. Curcumin alone does not absorb well into the bloodstream. It is therefore important to be sure that it is combined with piperine (or bioperine). The piperine boosts absorption by about 2000%. If the turmeric/curcumin extract is taken alone, most of the extract will pass through your digestive tract without giving you the benefits you are trying to achieve.

While we are siting the benefits of turmeric/curcumin, here is another one that you will want to keep in mind. Due to its strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, curcumin strongly fights free radicals. But it gets even better. It stimulates your body to boost its own antioxidants.

With all of this research evidence, it’s no wonder that it prompted Kris Gunnars, a nutrition researcher with a BSc, to state the following:

“Turmeric may be the most effective nutritional supplement in existence.”

Cryotherapy: How Does It Really Work?

Cryotherapy: How Does It Really Work?

The theory of cryonics has been around for many years, although cryotherapy is relatively new and becoming a trend, especially among athletes.

So What Exactly Is Cryotherapy?

In order to understand cryotherapy, one needs to first have a brief understanding of cryonics. In an article on cryonics, Wikipedia states:

“…the modern era of cryonics began in 1962 when Michigan college physics teacher Robert Ettinger proposed in a privately published book, The Prospect of Immortality, that freezing people may be a way to reach future medical technology. (The book was republished in 2005 and remains in print.) Even though freezing a person is apparently fatal, Ettinger argued that what appears to be fatal today may be reversible in the future.”

The practice of cryotherapy was an outshoot of cryonics. Today there are various methods used for cryotherapy.

The technology of whole body cryotherapy began in 1978 in Japan. It was developed and used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. From Japan, cryotherapy spread to Europe where more advanced studies developed further uses for cryotherapy.

Whole body cryotherapy is usually performed by clinicians and takes the place of cold water immersion or ice packs. The individual receiving the therapy wears minimal clothing, gloves, a woolen headband that covers the ears and a nose and mouth mask. Dry shoes and socks protect the feet. The person will then enter a chamber where they are exposed to extremely cold dry air that reaches temperatures of -100 ? C for 2 -4 minutes. In some cases the whole body cryotherapy allows the individuals head and neck to be free above the chamber.

What Medical Conditions Are Helped by Cryotherapy?

As mentioned earlier, cryotherapy has gained most of its credibility for relieving athletic aches and pains. As the technology keeps advancing though, cryotherapy uses also advance. The following list shows some of the most popular ways people are being helped through cryotherapy:
Muscle Soreness and Stiffness
Muscle and Injury Recovery
Skin and Facial Treatments
Diseases like MS and Cancer

Why Do People Choose Cryotherapy and Does Medical Insurance Pay for Cryotherapy?

People from all walks of life have chosen to try cryotherapy for various reasons. It seems that once a person gets over the initial apprehension of allowing their body temperature to be so drastically reduced, they come out of a session as a true believer.

Scott K, from California states:

“I’m 51 years old and this…is the fountain of youth…my stress level is down and I sleep much better.  I’ve had some various nagging aches and pains for years that have all cleared up.  I also find that I have more energy working out.”

Hailey C, from Nevada, who regularly has cryofacials, says:

“The Hydrafacial took about 30 minutes and made such a difference in my skin! My aesthetician, Lora, explained the whole process and was very nice! At the end of the treatment she showed me everything she got out of my skin during the treatment so I knew it worked well!
The Cryofacial felt very relaxing and helped to tighten my pores.”

An athlete, Jeff D, claims cryotherapy works better than more traditional treatments:

“I have chronic back pain and tons of sports related injuries and this…really works. The chamber treatments are awesome and the localized treatments really work and help get rid of dull pain that simply ice and ibuprofen would not take away.”

While medical insurance policies in many European countries recognize treatment through cryotherapy, the United States health insurance companies still do not reimburse for whole body cryotherapy. Down the road, however, as cryotherapy continues to become a more accepted medical treatment, health insurance companies in the US will have to reevaluate their policies.

Brain Hacking: Your Thoughts Aren’t as Private as You Believe

Brain Hacking: Your Thoughts Aren’t as Private as You Believe

Modern electronic technology has changed a lot over the last few years. For instance, BCI (Brain Computer Interfaces) have become popular because of the video games that have been developed by the entertainment and gaming industries. Consumer-grade BCIs are now available for very reasonable prices and are used for a variety of different applications. As anyone savvy with current technology knows, there are now application stores where you have access to APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that have been designed to interface and collect data from a BCI device. And all of this technology has led to what we call, brain hacking.

Brain Hacking Revealed Through Scientific Research

In 2008, a neuroscience research company by the name of, NeuroFocus, was bought by The Nielsen Company (a leading global information and research company). NeuroFocus developed an EEG-based BCI called Mynd. At the time they stated (see the Martinovic PDF):

“…market researchers will be able to capture the highest
quality data on consumers’ deep subconscious responses
in real time wirelessly, revolutionizing mobile in-market
research and media consumption at home.”

Using this new technology, scientific studies were conducted by researchers at the University of California in Berkley and the University of Oxford in Geneva. The researchers wondered if they could access secret personal data stored on a person’s brain by using EEG-based BCI devices. The specific data they were interested in was secret information such as: bank accounts, bank cards, PIN numbers, areas of living, the knowledge of known persons, etc.

Results of Brain Hacking Scientific Studies

The initial testing, which took place back in 2012, showed significantly positive results that the conclusion of the researchers was that as technology in the quality of EEG-based BCI devices increased, the success rates of attacks to obtain secret information from brain hacking would also increase. Their conclusion was that the development of new brain hacking attacks could be accomplished with relative ease and would only be limited by the attacker’s creativity.

It seems that brain hacking is another serious threat to our security now and in the future.

The Paleo Diet, Is It Your Best Choice for the New Year?

The Paleo Diet, Is It Your Best Choice in 2015?

Every January millions of us step on the bathroom scale and reality hits. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed the holidays and eating everything that we have resisted all year. For most of us, we go from feast to famine and we dust off our gym membership and head back to the “exercise torture chamber.” The worst part is that we have the post- holiday blues, and where in the world did our energy go? We think, maybe it’s time to try that Paleo Diet we’ve been hearing about.

So What Really Is the Paleo Diet?

The Paleo Diet, or Paleolithic Diet, is based on how it is believed our cavemen ancestors ate. The emphasis is on meat and fish that is not saturated with growth-stimulating antibiotics and hormones and fresh fruit and vegetables. The diet excludes dairy products, processed sugars, grains, trans fats and industrialized Omega-6 fats. Herein lies the objections of many dieticians and nutritionists. They claim that any diet that excludes certain food groups is not balanced. They also claim that there is no scientific proof that the Paleo Diet leads to a longer and healthier life.

Jennifer Andrus, a New York City nutritionist, says of the Paleo diet:

“It eliminates dairy, legumes and some other foods that can be a healthy part of one’s diet…I think processed food deserves the criticism, but probably not because we haven’t evolved; more likely because we eat too much of it and most of it is nutritionally void.”

The Paleo Diet and Recent Research

Most processed foods and packaged foods contain trans fats. Trans fats are man-made oils that cause inflammation. Scientific research has unearthed the fact that inflammation is behind many of our serious health problems such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, ADD/ADHD, strokes, migraines, thyroid issues, the list goes on and on. The Paleo Diet is a diet that avoids foods that cause inflammation. When we change our diet to a diet that is anti-inflammatory, such as the Paleo Diet, we can see immediate and dramatic health improvements. Another benefit of an anti-inflammatory diet is that people tend to lose weight.

Mark Sisson, a leading expert on anti-inflammatory diets and the Paleo Diet, says:

“Certainly use plants, vegetables as the main basis of the Paleo eating strategy. And then great sources of protein: so meat, fish, fowl, eggs, and so on, and then healthy fats.”

So, what does he mean by “healthy fats?” Aren’t all fats, especially saturated fats, bad for you? No. That is another thing that extensive recent research is unveiling.

Here is a list of the healthy fats that are encouraged by the Paleo Diet and thousands of doctors who have stayed current with the recent dietary research:


Nuts and seeds

Olive oil

Fish oil

Coconut oil

Saturated fat in beef and pork

Dr. Eric Westman, of the Duke Lifestyle Medicine Clinic, is one of those doctors who has changed his opinion due to the research results. He now says:

“In fact, saturated fat, the fat that we’ve been taught not to eat, raises your good cholesterol best of all the foods you can eat.”

So should you feel comfortable about using the Paleo Diet this year? Yes, but remember that balance in a diet is all important. Chris Kresser, author of the book, Your Personal Paleo Code, says:

“Some people like to abide by the 80/20 rule; if 80% of your diet is perfect, there’s wiggle room for the rest.”
