 The drugs are rarely used, but sometimes are taken by visitors from high-gravity worlds when they need to stay for an extended time on Luna or some other low-gravity environment. A better solution is the electro-stimulation suit. This is a garment which produces a low-level electrical impulse -- it cannot be felt by the person wearing it. Wearing this device for about one-half to one hour per day stimulate muscles and bone to react as if exposed to gravity. Some beds have been wired to provide gentle electro-stimulation while the occupant sleeps. ​ The drugs are rarely used, but sometimes are taken by visitors from high-gravity worlds when they need to stay for an extended time on Luna or some other low-gravity environment.

-Ever since before the Apocalypse War, the class of asteroid-dwelling recoms known as Belters have been genetically engineered to thrive in low gravity without any drugs or electro-stimulation. Since that time, many other recoms in Sol System chose to have the same genes recombined into their children. As a result, a fairly large portion of Luna's native population now are able to live without electro-stimulation. This trait is less common on Mars and other recom colonies. ​ +Ever since before the Apocalypse War, the class of asteroid-dwelling recoms known as Belters have been genetically engineered to thrive in low gravity without any drugs or electro-stimulation.

 ====== Aging ====== ====== Aging ======
  
 Most recoms develop to adulthood at the same pace as humans, but after about the age of 19 they age more slowly. Aging is also controlled to some extent using medical treatments, such as telomere replacement therapy, but nobody has yet managed to completely halt the aging process. Most recoms develop to adulthood at the same pace as humans, but after about the age of 19 they age more slowly.
