Re: WARNING re. Aricept (Donepezil)

I dove into this recently when I saw the lightly cooked eggs depicted in Julie's personal protocol slide deck. My conclusion from about 15 minutes of googling around is that any loss is negligible - 10% or less. I could find no non-hearsay source for the belief that cooking eggs destroys choline. In...

Re: CSF Ferritin predicts cognitive decline in E4s

Thanks for the heads-up, giftsplash. Among friends my age, many are not eligible to donate blood, and as we saw from the Australian Family Physician article that slacker shared, professional phlebotomy may not be generally available due to public health policy. There's a good thread on IP6 at Longec...

Re: Olive Oil Brands

Kirkland Signature Organic polyphenol level was 369, peroxide was 5.08, and it scored well on the sensory tests, which were conducted by a single expert taster. The CL review focused on popular products sold at grocery stores - I wouldn't expect the Kirkland product to match up to Amphora Nueva's be...

Re: Olive Oil Brands

Last month ConsumerLab.com published a thorough evaluation of ten popular extra virgin olive oils . Enticed by the top marks for polyphenols and cost, I tried the Kirkland Signature Organic product. I have been using another highly rated product from California Olive Ranch, and I noticed the differe...

Re: New paper suggests that statins may be beneficial for E4 homozygotes

It's an open access paper - full text is here . Looking forward to hearing members' theories on WHY the statins caused a decreased cognitive decline. In the paper is an extensive discussion of the flaws and weaknesses in this after-the-fact analysis. After reviewing those equivocations, I'm not pers...

Re: CSF Ferritin predicts cognitive decline in E4s

That's a fascinating document, slacker. On the topic of insulin resistance / sensitivity, the authors point the arrow of causation in the opposite direction from Francesco Facchini ( Gastroenterology and also British Journal of Nutrition ): AFP: improve insulin sensitivity => reduce iron stores Facc...

Re: CSF Ferritin predicts cognitive decline in E4s

Marty mentioned how the brain iron stores are not reflected in these lab ferritins, so should we assume a high level is bad? I think the evidence that high serum ferritin levels damage our bodies is compelling. That serum ferritin levels don't correlate with CSF ferritin levels or brain iron stores...

Re: CSF Ferritin predicts cognitive decline in E4s

Men suffer greater rates of cancer, heart disease, and brain-degenerative disorders like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's than women. Iron is implicated in all of these maladies. I don't know as I see no footnote for that remark. The cancer, heart disease, and Parkinson's rates do seem to be higher for ...
