David has a large number of followers on Instagram, with more than 300,000 followers reading his posts about biohacking. He made a drastic transformation and reduced his body fat from 30 to 9% in 1 year and has strived to optimize his health through biohacking. She is a holistic nutritionist, epigenetics and human potential trainer who has spent the last 10 years researching and learning about human optimization and is the host of the popular and growing podcast BioHacking SuperHuman Podcast. Brad Stanfield is a 28-year-old doctor from New Zealand who has recently created a popular YouTube channel that is growing rapidly.
I am currently at the PaleoFX conference and had the pleasure of listening to a panel discussion on biohacking with some of the best biohackers in the world (pictured above, from left to right, Dan Pardi, Josh Whiton, Jolly, Abel James Bascom and Darryl Edwards). With the writings of Michael Pollan, Gandhi and Thoreau as his guide, Josh became a food system reformer (and a master at composting), creating a community garden in his neighborhood and, later, a highly visible one-acre commercial urban farm just one mile from downtown. As the author of “The Wild Diet”, Abel brings ancient, paleo and real dietary principles to the mainstream. Abel has conducted research studies, presentations and conferences for Fortune 500 companies, Ivy League institutions, and the Federal Government.
Abel James completed high school and college in a total of just six years. Distinguished as the best student at the New Hampton School, he earned his A, B. at Dartmouth College and graduated as a senior fellow with honors with a specialization in Psychological and Brain Sciences. He focused his scholarship research on the evolutionary and biological basis of the faculty of music and on the effects of technological advances on business, popular music and culture.
Dan is the CEO and co-founder of Dan's Plan, an online technology and wellness company that promotes optimal health in our modern world. Before founding this company, Dan established a track record of excellence in a variety of health-related occupations, including innovative work in bioinformatics and scientific and medical issues in the biopharmaceutical industries. Dan has also done scientific research on diet, exercise, and cancer, and is currently conducting research in both the neurobiology of sleep and cognitive neuroscience at Stanford University and Leiden University. Take more measurements and quantify them (I would personally recommend looking for something like FitBit for that).
Dave Asprey is considered the founder of BioHackers, who runs a company that all biohackers will be familiar with called Bulletproof. Ben Greenfield is in close dispute with Dave Asprey as the reference source for biohacking, since he covers many areas in extreme detail. Davinia Taylor is known for starring in the popular television series Hollyoaks, and has since become a biohacker. He is the author of several books that are popular with BioHackers and his most recent release, Boundless, has been considered the “BioHacking Bible”.
Although the relatively famous biohacker Dave Asprey was absent, this lineup of biohackers still brought significant intellectual capacity to the stage. Biohacking is the art and science of being healthier by intentionally changing the environment inside and around you. Bob Troia is a New York-based tech entrepreneur, biohacker, and fan of self-quantification who focuses on data to optimize your health. Now, this is just a sample of what was discussed during the roundtable on biohacking, but in a few weeks I'll show you how to access ALL the videos produced by PaleoFX.
