New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
Clothing I've Been Wearing For EMF, EMI, RFID & Radiation Protection
For the top, I wear a NoChoice Hoodie, which is made of 100% silver fiber technology. The hoodie has conductive, EMF, EMI, RFID, and anti-radiation functions. There is a grounding attachment and comes with a grounding cord so you can also ground when you get to your final destination (without having to go barefoot/outside). It zips up fully over the head to ensure your face, neck, eyes, brain, etc. are fully protected. You are even able to see through the fabric when zipped up so you can continue with daily activities. The silver fabrics are naturally and permanently antimicrobial too, which is nice.
For the bottom, I wear the NoChoice Reversible Joggers made of 100% silver fiber technology on the silver side. The black side is water-resistant nylon. Like the top, the joggers have conductive, EMF, EMI, RFID, and anti-radiation functions. There is a grounding attachment on these too.
So top and bottom together, they are basically like a full-body faraday cage. They even make a full-body suit for babies, which I think is cool, and very important. Also, I know that it’s working because I can’t even take a phone call if my phone is on and it’s in my pocket! Pretty comfortable too.
Anyways, most importantly, I am feeling way, way better when I’m flying and surrounded by radiation, WiFi, EMF, 5G, etc. Smart move to own gear like this. You can get some for yourself here, and use code BENPROTECT to save 5%.
Anybody else tried EMF-blocking gear like this?

Podcasts I Was Featured On This Week:
::: Get Exclusive Access To A New Continuous Blood Glucose Tracking Device :::
Poor blood glucose control is tied to a host of ailments including weight gain, fatigue, sexual dysfunction, diabetes, Alzheimer's, heart disease, stroke, and beyond.
And with almost 90 million Americans being prediabetic (and 84% of those with prediabetes not even aware of the road they're headed down), there's never been more of a need for direct access to your own body’s real-time data—so you can make lasting changes and improve your metabolic health.
This is where Levels comes in.
Levels is expanding access to continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and making it mainstream, focused on people looking to find their optimal diet, improve metabolic fitness, and increase longevity.
In addition to making it easy to get a CGM through their website, Levels provides an app that interprets your data for you, scores your meal and lifestyle choices, and allows you to run experiments across different inputs such as diet and exercise, and recovery techniques like temperature therapy.
Not to mention they’re backed by a stellar team including a Stanford MD, top engineers from SpaceX and Google, and world-class researchers, including repeat podcast guest of mine, Dom D'Agostino.
The folks at Levels are currently running an early access program with a waitlist of over 35,000 people. To skip that line and join the program now, just use my link!

Featured Product: Kion Decaf Coffee!
Fresh from Kion HQ in Boulder, CO and our highly-skilled roasters, Kion Decaf Coffee is finally here.
Using the same specialty-grade coffee beans and ultra-high standards of testing that made Kion Coffee wildly popular, we've crafted Kion Decaf Coffee to bring you the same aroma and flavor—with almost zero caffeine.
We maintain our commitment to offering the cleanest coffee possible by starting with 100% organic, mold- and mycotoxin-free beans, roasting them to high antioxidant/low acrylamide perfection, and decaffeinating it using Mountain Water Processing (MWP).
Nearly identical to the Swiss Water Process you're probably familiar with, MWP uses, you guessed it, pure mountain water and removes the caffeine without the use of chemicals. MWP maintains the beans’ original components and elements of flavor—giving you delicious, aromatic, decaffeinated coffee.

There's a reason that I personally drink no more than 1-2 cups of caffeinated black coffee each day, and switch to decaf for at least 1 week every couple of months. Low dose caffeine can improve mental performance and protect against Alzheimer's, so you don't need to avoid it entirely. But acting similarly to anti-depressants, high doses of caffeine, ephedrine, guarana, Ritalin, and any other central nervous system stimulant can flood the brain with neurotransmitters, creating neurotransmitter resistance or long term receptor damage. People who frequently use coffee, tea, soda, or energy drinks actually change their brain’s chemistry and physical characteristics over time. Because it is both water and fat-soluble, caffeine can easily cross your blood-brain barrier, and as you dump more and more caffeine into your body, your brain cells grow more receptors for a neurotransmitter called adenosine. Adenosine causes feelings of tiredness, and its molecular structure closely resembles caffeine – so caffeine can easily fit into your brain cells’ receptors for adenosine. With its receptors constantly plugged up by caffeine, adenosine can no longer bind to those receptors and cause the feeling of tiredness. Unfortunately, your body's response is to create more and more adenosine receptors – so you eventually need more and more caffeine to block the feeling of tiredness – and over time, you build up a tolerance. The good news is that to kick a caffeine habit and “reset” your adenosine receptors, you only need to get through about 7-12 days of caffeine avoidance, which is why I recommend taking week-long breaks from coffee and other similar stimulants every couple months. I break this down in great detail in my most recent article which you can read at BenGreenfieldFitness.com/decaf-article (in bio) and also in the video here. Fortunately, my company @kion has just released an extremely unique, flavorful and CLEAN decaf version of our world-famous Kion coffee, available for 20% off when you use the code BGF20 at GetKion.com/shop (in bio) Are you switching to decaf every so often?

Sooo…I just read that @realDonaldTrump says @JoeBiden will get an ass-cheek shot of drugs to amp him up for tomorrow night's debate. Brain biohackers: what's your bet on the drug? Semax? Selank? Modafinil? Adderal? Coke? I'd personally go for some kinda racetam/choline combo.
