HATS AND Traumatic brain injuries......might they be linked?

    IS WEARING A HAT CHRONICALLY SIMILAR TO HAVING A Traumatic brain injury (TBI) based upon its effects on cytochrome C oxidase (CCO)? On the surface, these questions appear to be ludicrous, but is it?
    TBI's open the cervical blood-brain barrier and the brains blood barrier to allow materials to gain entrance that would normally be excluded.
    So could just wearing a hat too long lead to cognitive or neurologic problems longer term?
    Australia has a "no hat no play" policy at all schools and this is having very detrimental effects on children. Red light in sunlight is 42% Infrared A all day even when it's cloudy. Unlike artificial light, sunlight is unpolarized and has no flicker and penetrates deeply to all tissue in the body. It penetrates the skull and gets into every mitochondria in your brain too. IR-A light affects the 4 red light chromophores of CCO in humans Your head, containing your brain, is at the top of your body so it can collect red sunlight all day. if it is exposed to sunlight. What happens if it is not in the sun chronically?
    CCO makes DDW from IR-A in humans.
    Red light in sunlight increases mitochondrial function without using food electrons and their associated light photons to boost energy and information processing in cells while also making more deuterium depleted water (DDW) at CCO to control inflammatory ROS signals. If you spend your life indoors and/or wearing a hat then you might need to pay for this PBM treatment in a clinic to avoid brain diseases and be more susceptible to a potential TBI. http://www.jbc.org/content/280/6/4761.short

    I wear a hat all day when UV is 2 or higher. Rest of my body is exposed skin and I walk barefoot. If I don’t wear a hat, I develop freckles and other sun spots on my face. I’m Fitzpatrick 1, but finding success building a solar callus on the rest of my body.

    I'm starting to wonder when you all say solar callus if it's more metaphorical? Your skin isn't turning leather-ish right?

    @Saichi Have you read the solar callus blog on Patreon?

    Visor vs hat to get that light on the noggin? I like freckles, though.

  7. Metaphorical in that its not like thick calluses on your hands from long hard labor that look thicker but like a callus in that it allows one long exposure to sun without burns or blisters.

    I can vouch for the effectiveness of solar callus. I was a pale brown hair green eyed northern german who went all in about 14 months ago. No sun glasses or sun screen and as mu h sun as posible every day. Last winter spent 10 days in yucatan, 10 days on Kuaii and 21 days at 6 degrees n. Dont use any creams but my wife moisturized my back maybe 5 times. Never burnt. Last summer I aquired white spots all over chest, shoulder and back which I believe was caused by melonopsin disfunction. They have all completely disappeared without a trace.
    My skin is darker than it has ever been, but still soft.

    I used to get very dark as a kid and early adult. I'm wondering what genetic mitochondrial traits exist that allow some on this forum to handle nnUVC unlike others and most people I know in real life, even ones who work outdoors.

    To rephrase previous post I'm measuring minimum three parts UVC per thousand of total UV. Ott wrote he measured a trace amount 50ish years ago. Trace to me is part per billion or part per million max. Sort of blows my mind if there's no unclassified published reports of historical UV measurements, but I can also see why the Agency would want to keep it classified.

    Haven't signed up yet.

    Also don't go out without a sunhat on when it's sunny anymore. Got two reptile bulbs over my desk though lol.

    And here's an illustration of how NIR gets into the brain using CSF and to the fetus using amniotic fluid

    So a really full head of hair doesn't impact the amount of sunlight that deeply enters the human body?

  11. Thats Awesome Nathan...do you have the link for this please?

    I just finished Robert C. Kane's wonderful book, Cellular Telephone Russian Roulette. It's about 40 years of research on absorption of cellular phone radiation into your head. Nowhere did he suggest that hair blocked anything, at least at those wavelengths.

    To be honest, I don’t really think that hats and traumatic brain injuries are correlated at all. I might be wrong since I lack a lot of knowledge, but I still believe that what I’m saying is correct. I love wearing hats myself, and ever since school, I have never stopped wearing hats. A couple of weeks ago, I went to a football game with my cousin, and at one point, I realized that my favorite hat had vanished. I tried to look for it near the stands, but I wasn’t able to find anything. I decided to buy a new hat, and luckily my cousin recommended a cool website where you can purchase custom 7-panel hats. I decided to get one for myself, and I wasn’t disappointed at all.

    Somewhere here there is a post mentioning thick sculls (or harder sculls) of Egyptian soldiers compared to their enemy's skulls.
    Egyptians were shaved and fully exposed to sunlight, had no helmets.
