The Air Quality-Longevity Connection

Clean air is essential for human health and longevity. Outdoor air pollution is caused by a variety of sources, including the burning of fossil fuels, industrial emissions, and agricultural activities. Common pollutants include particulate matter, ozone, and nitrogen dioxide. When we breathe in these pollutants, they enter our lungs and get absorbed into our bloodstream, leading to inflammation and tissue damage throughout the body. This can cause a wide range of chronic inflammatory diseases including heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, skin diseases, and lung cancer.1,2

On a global level, outdoor air pollution shortens lifespan by nearly three years, which is comparable to the effects of smoking. This makes air pollution non-negligible as one of the greatest environmental risks to human health and lifespan.3

Detoxification Biohacking Means Fewer Chemicals

Indoor air pollution is also a serious health concern for longevity, as most people spend 90% of their time indoors. It’s created by the off-gassing of furniture, paint, and carpeting which releases harmful chemicals like formaldehyde and benzene. Cleaning products, dust, mold, and outdoor air pollution are other common irritants. Indoor air pollution can cause many of the same diseases as outdoor air pollution including heart disease, asthma, and lung diseases–all of which can substantially shorten lifespan.4

Reduce Outdoor Activity When Air Quality Is Poor

So what can you do about air pollution? Beyond moving to an area with lower air pollution, there are other ways to drastically reduce your exposure to air pollution. The first step is to determine the level of air pollution in your city or town. Try to limit your outdoor activities on days when the pollution level is high. Also, avoid exercising near busy roads as this will significantly increase the amount of air pollution you inhale. If you live in a large city, attempt to steer clear of the most air-polluted areas with more people, cars, and industry.5

Invest in House Plants, Air Purifiers, and Mold Removal

When it comes to indoor air pollution, house plants such as English ivy and peace lilies can help remove toxins from the air.6 Air purifiers, especially HEPA purifiers, can help reduce fine particulates.7 Make sure you have enough ventilation in your home to allow clean air in and toxins out. If you’ve had water damage in the past, it may make sense to bring in a mold expert to determine if there are any issues. Finally, avoid running a humidifier for more than a few hours as the excess moisture can increase mold growth.8

Microplastics

Microplastics Are Everywhere: Longevity Biohacks Can Help

Microplastics, or broken-down bits of plastic, are an increasingly serious form of environmental pollution that affect health and longevity. Thankfully, through awareness and smart choices, you can improve your detoxification process.

Microplastics Damage Health and Longevity

Microplastics are tiny particles of plastic produced from larger plastic pieces and broken down into less than 5mm in diameter. Since the 1950s, the amount of plastic being produced has increased exponentially, and with it, so has the widespread circulation of microplastics. These tiny particles are found in a wide variety of sources, including everyday items such as water, food and food packaging, clothing, personal care products, and the air we breathe.1

Microplastics have been found in various human tissues and stool, and research strongly suggests that they have harmful effects on human health.2,3,4 Studies have demonstrated that microplastics are dangerous because they cause inflammation and oxidative stress. In mice, microplastics were shown to disrupt gut barrier and function, cause liver damage, increase cholesterol, and reduce energy production.2 Microplastics may also increase the risk of reproductive and fertility issues, nervous system damage, and cancer.5,6

Biohacks for Lower Microplastic Exposure

There are several ways to limit the number of microplastics you ingest every day. One of the main ways is to avoid drinking out of plastic water bottles and instead opt for glass or stainless steel containers. Tea bags are another common source of microplastics; look for brands that use paper tea bags or use tea strainers and loose-leaf teas. Do your best to avoid foods that come in plastic packaging. If you’re drinking from your tap water, installing a reverse osmosis system can help remove most of the microplastics in your water. 

Detoxification Means Healthier Personal Choices

Running a good HEPA air filter in your house can help remove microplastics floating around the air. Many personal care products including sunscreen, body wash, makeup, and facial moisturizers contain microplastics, therefore make sure you read the ingredients carefully. You can also include more plastic-free clothing in your wardrobe, made from natural fibers. Keeping your gut healthy and intact is also key to keeping microplastics out of your body. Microplastics have more facility crossing the gut in those with IBS or Crohn’s disease. You can learn how to improve gut health here.6 

While microplastics do pose a threat to our health, biohackers armed with the right knowledge and awareness can greatly limit their exposure and harmful effects.

Heavy Metals

Rock On: Improve Longevity With Heavy Metal Detoxification Biohacks

Heavy metals, such as lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium, build up in our bodies over time. Biohackers can reduce their burden and increase their longevity with these proven detoxification tips.

Smiling woman in a robe with closed eyes wearing a felt hat in an infrared sauna.

Long-Term Heavy Metal Exposure Is Serious

Heavy metal toxicity has become a pressing concern due to our increased exposure to environmental pollutants and the widespread use of heavy metals in various industrial and consumer products. Heavy metals such as lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium are known to build up in our bodies as we age, potentially causing negative effects on our health and longevity. Even iron, which is a beneficial mineral, can accumulate in the body and accelerate the aging process by causing oxidative stress.1

Long-term exposure to heavy metals can lead to a range of health issues, including cognitive impairment, hormonal imbalances, poor immune function, kidney, liver, and brain damage, and even age-related chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases.2,3

Studies have found that higher levels of cadmium, mercury, and lead in the bloodstream increase the risk of death from heart disease and cancer.4,5

In light of the fact that heavy metals are practically everywhere, and the potential dangers associated with them, what actions can we take to protect ourselves against the long-term effects of these toxins on our longevity?

Biohack, Start Detoxification, and Avoid Heavy Metals

If you’re planning to live a long time, you need a strategy for detoxifying heavy metals so they don’t build up to harmful levels in your body. Sweating, especially during intense exercise or from sauna use, has been shown to help excrete heavy metals like lead, arsenic, and mercury.6

Proper Nutrition Helps Longevity and Detoxification

Also, make sure you’re getting enough zinc, magnesium, calcium, and selenium as these minerals compete for absorption with heavy metals.7 Keeping your glutathione levels high by supplementing with N-acetylcysteine or alpha-lipoic acid is another essential component of heavy metal detoxifying.8 Try to avoid or limit the main sources of heavy metals in diet including predatory fish such as tuna, swordfish, and mackerel, all of which are high in mercury. Many popular dark chocolate brands also contain high levels of cadmium and lead.9,10

Removing toxic heavy metals is a foundational pillar of any longevity biohacking strategy. The main takeaway is to avoid the major sources of heavy metals and assist the body in its natural detoxification processes through things like sweating and supplementation.

Biohacking Longevity FAQs

Longevity Through Detoxification Biohacks

Detoxifying your life can have significant benefits for longevity and overall health.

  • How does optimizing air quality contribute to biohacking longevity and detoxification?

    Optimizing air quality involves reducing exposure to indoor pollutants, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), mold, and particulate matter. By using air purifiers, improving ventilation, and avoiding chemical-laden products, you can reduce toxin exposure and support overall detoxification processes.

  • What are biohacker recommendations for removing microplastics from our environment?

    Biohackers recommend reducing the use of plastic products, especially those that come into contact with food or beverages. Using glass or stainless steel containers, filtering tap water, and avoiding single-use plastics can help minimize exposure to microplastics and support detoxification.

  • How can removing heavy metals from our diet contribute to biohacking longevity?

    Heavy metals, such as lead, mercury, and arsenic, can accumulate in the body and contribute to various health issues. Consuming a clean, organic diet, avoiding contaminated seafood, and supporting the body’s natural detoxification pathways through targeted supplements can help reduce heavy metal burden and support longevity.

  • What is a biohacker’s perspective on dental care and its impact on detoxification?

    Biohackers emphasize the importance of proper dental care for overall detoxification. This includes regular dental cleanings, addressing oral infections, using biocompatible materials and non-toxic oral care products. Biological dentists can help you with chronic inflammation and toxin release, while providing proper dental care support for systemic well-being.

  • How can lifestyle factors support detoxification and longevity?

    Lifestyle factors, such as getting adequate sleep, managing stress, and engaging in regular physical activity, play a crucial role in supporting the body’s natural detoxification processes. Quality sleep, stress reduction techniques, and exercise promote optimal organ function and aid in toxin elimination, contributing to longevity.

  • Are there dietary recommendations for biohacking longevity through detoxification?

    Yes, a diet rich in whole, unprocessed foods, organic fruits and vegetables, and high-quality proteins can support detoxification pathways. Including foods like cruciferous vegetables, berries, and herbs like cilantro or parsley can provide nutrients that aid in detoxification processes and promote longevity.

  • Can fasting or intermittent fasting be beneficial for detoxification and longevity?

    Yes, fasting or intermittent fasting can support detoxification and longevity by allowing the body to focus on cellular repair and toxin elimination. During fasting periods, the body enters a state of autophagy, breaking down damaged cells and recycling cellular components, contributing to overall detoxification and rejuvenation.

  • What are some biohacking strategies to reduce toxin exposure in everyday life?

    Biohacking strategies to reduce toxin exposure include using non-toxic household cleaning products, opting for organic and non-GMO foods, filtering water, and minimizing exposure to plastics and synthetic chemicals. These strategies help reduce the toxic burden on the body and support overall detoxification.

  • Can saunas or heat therapy be beneficial for detoxification and longevity?

    Yes, saunas or heat therapy can promote detoxification through sweating. Sweating helps eliminate toxins from the body, including heavy metals and environmental pollutants. Regular sauna sessions or heat therapy can support overall detoxification processes and contribute to longevity.

  • What role does hydration play in biohacking longevity and detoxification?

    Hydration is crucial for supporting detoxification processes. Drinking adequate amounts of clean, filtered water helps flush toxins out of the body and supports optimal organ function.
