Wait! Don’t run away! This is actually super cool. It’s a long post, but you’ll be super smart by the end ;) Yesterday, an extremely exciting academic study from the Netherlands Cancer Institute in Amsterdam described tremendously exciting leaps in anti-aging drugs, often thought to be a holy grail of biological science. These results are […]

I wrote a Chrome extension that strobes the screen at a custom intensity and frequency to aim to replicate gamma frequency induce amyloid plaque reduction. The extension options page allows for custom change in […]
