Ever heard of the concept of bio-hacking? The idea is similar to computer hacking. In a way, how can you take existing systems, such as computer programming and use it to make systems better. In computer hacking, its computers. In bio-hacking, its how you hack your own body to improve its performance.
There are many bio-hackers around and usually these people experiment on themselves based on existing research that they could read up on. However similar to the spirit of computer hacking, there is a high element of self experimentation. Before you jump the gun here and tell me how dangerous it all sounds, let me assure you that the bio-hacking communities have some of the most impressive people with impressive credentials that I have read. And more often than not, they will tell you where to get quality food, where to eat, what to eat, what is good for various activities and goals. Bio-hacking is the next step for health conscious individuals who wants to be the best that they can be.
