AUTOPHAGY

A Japanese cell biologist Yoshinori Ohsumi won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2016 for his research on how cells recycle and renew their content, a process called autophagy. (two Greek words: “auto” or self and “phagy” to eat.) After about 17 hours of fasting, these cells start eating the cells that are the ‘debris’ of the body.Continue reading “AUTOPHAGY”

PLANKS – they’re what everybody is talking about

Here are three videos to get you started. I’m already in. No longer than 1 minute is recommended for any variation of the PLANK. I did my first modified plank today for 1 minute.

However, watching is time-consuming, so I go for the short clips. But with the talking videos it isn’t necessary to watch – generally speaking – soContinue reading “Listen While You Work”
