Another Biohacker On Stage From Quantified Self 2011

Check out this video from the Body Track initiative out of Carnegie Mellon. The speaker used tech tools to determine what her response to environmental variables was. She figured out that some things affected her more than others and learned how to avoid them.
She found she had a very common problem – an allergy to nightshades, which includes potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant. Approximately 20% of arthritis is caused by a reaction to the lectins in these foods. The Bulletproof Diet accounts for problems like this, automatically taking out foods that are high in toxins.
I wish I’d had something like Body Track when I was doing all the biohacking I did to troubleshoot myself. It’s getting so easy to hack yourself that there’s no excuse for not doing it!
