Biohacking

The term biohacking really does cover a wide range of approaches to improving your health, from optimising exercise, diet, supplements and lifestyle, through to DIY biology where people are experimenting on themselves with unproven drugs and gene therapies.

Here, we define biohacking as those pushing the boundary with new and, probably, unproven therapies, devices and supplements. Once proven.

Good advice from LEAF's Steve Hill - "if you are not recording your biomarkers and doing things scientifically, you risk hurting yourself and are taking things on faith rather than evidence; this also has potential to harm the field and set research back, so please hack responsibly."
