It looks as though the transhuman future is just around the corner. An ex-Nasa biochemist, Josiah Zayner, recently publicly modified his own DNA in order to block the production of myostatin.
This change could potentially induce an increase in muscle mass of around 30%. The same process has been demonstrated in knockout mice, resulting in visibly increased muscle with no obvious side effects. What's more is that bulls and dogs can be selectively bread for this mutation AND it can occur naturally in humans to varying degrees.
This is not a procedure that is available right now and of course it carries risks: the long-term implications are completely unknown. However, this is undoubtedly a fascinating subject and a topic that we will need to contend with in the coming years. The process known as CRISPR makes this so easy that it will be incredibly hard to regulate. And there's no way to detect this kind of gene doping either.
This is just one example of transhuman technologies slowly becoming a reality - I discuss two other interesting ones in the video. What do you guys think about this kind of thing?
You may be wondering if you can block myostatin for increased muscle *without messing with your DNA. To some extent yes. Myostatin correlates with grehlin and cortisol - keep your blood sugar from dipping too low, avoid stress and keep eating and you can avoid muscle breakdown.
Likewise, studies suggest that -epicatechin, found in dark chocolate and cacao, might be able to reduce myostatin and increase follistatin.
Transhumanism is what the elite want
my hero academia is about to be real
I recover like superfast and think it might be some kind of genetic mutation is it possible?
Let us pray that strength enhacement from batman to cap america,black panther and spiderman will happen and combined with brain to machine learn all 200 martial arts. Amen
The far future is unimaginably weird.

Iam waiting for Gene Therapy to be affordable . Bless you Doctor .
Que ganas de ser parte e integrar mi experimento luz yo trabajo con el monucleotido de nicotinamida con resultados co.probables pero lentos para mi gusto a 6 meses se ven algún os cambios en coloración de mi pelo y mejora de la visión como datomis uñas muy fuertes en fin .su terapia es más avanzada y siguiente sus publicaciones telomerasa es lo que estoy estudiando a Rull. Concluí que se presenta de origen animal y vegetal esa es mi duda dar liz
Sounds very exciting! How many patients have gotten this treatment and how much did it cost them?
Does he mean he tried gene therapy before Liz Parrish? He said five years ago...? My, time flies! Me next!??
What is the dosage? I’ve heard of weightlifters injecting 100mcg/day for 30 days. Does this sound correct?
