Can Kids Take Smart Drugs?
Jens says: He's from the Netherlands, and he's wondering what the best supplements are for kids to get their max performance at school?
Can Ketosis Cause Muscle Damage?
Dave says: He's 4 weeks into ketosis and 5 weeks out from his first marathon. He did a 24k run yesterday and afterwards he had pale brown urine and he was advised to go to emergency where they told him he has rhabdomyolysis because his body could no longer burn fat and that it started to break down his muscles because he had no carbs on board. His question is, is that possible? Why would his body stop burning fat because of a lack of carbs? They recommended he take some carbs before a long run, which sounds like carb loading, and he's concerned if he does that before the marathon, once they are gone, his body won't be fat adapted and he'll be in worse trouble than when he started. Can you clarify?
Can Infrared Saunas Lower Sperm Count?
Jay says: He appreciates your bad-assery and appreciates you putting it on your podcast. He has some questions about sauna. He bought a sauna a while back and didn't think about EMFs – does this mean he needs to get rid of it and get a new one? And do you know anything about sitting on an ice pack while sitting in a sauna, just so the ‘gentlemen's' boys don't get too hot.
23andMe vs. DNAFit
Polly says: Polly is from Columbus Ohio, she started listening 4-5 months ago and got interested in biohacking thanks to you. She's interested in getting her DNA tested because she thinks she'll find out a lot to optimize her well being, but she's not sure about the difference between 23andMe, DNAFit and the other programs, like Promethease. She has read your blogs but she's still confused, can you help her out?
