Biology – The Danger Of Over Washing

Thermal Regulation Decreases Mutations?

January 12, 2016

Here is an idea to consider concerning mutations:

Maintaining temperature may play a role in decreasing mutations.

This was sparked by a quote from the book title “Introducing Genetics,” by Jones and Van Loon, …even a slight increase in temperature doubled the rate (of lethal mutations in fruit flies).”

Days later it dawned on me that the reverse was probably true. Thermal regulation in birds and mammals may decrease mutations. Perhaps that is even one reason for the thermal regulation. It would seem to me that if temperature regulation would reduce mutations; that would be a very important way to keep the genome as is. That would be a very big plus for any species.

The reverse may be true as well. Changing temperature may play a role in increasing mutations during times of environmental stress.

Sleep as Infection Fighting

November 19, 2015

More and more I see the body’s biological fight of infection as a major cause of many of our human problems, problems that are too often blamed on social relationships etc. We blame the people out there, but the greater danger – and our body is responding to it if we are unconscious of it – is infection.

Our conscious mind is not much in the fight, but the other parts of our nervous system seem to be making infection fighting, job one in importance. When we recognize that, I think it will solve a lot of our trauma.

Then I’ll take this one step further and say that sleep is mostly for fighting infection while resetting the digestive system. Wake and nurture, Sleep and fight infection.

Block Those Bad Bugs

Report – O2 on earth earlier than thought

October 7, 2015

Life is not a fluke one-time assembly, of chemicals that popped up out of nothing in one place. It’s a reaction to the environment over millions of years.

My ideas on the origin of life, are based on the idea that life was a reaction to UV and sunlight, in a daily cycle. That gets some support by this article showing how far back photosynthesis goes – much further than many had thought.
