Re: Vegan Newbie, Accidental 4/4 discovery, Terrified

ZenGinner, I would add that some exceptionally high-powered and persuasive recent studies associate cholesterol in the 200-300 range with LONGER life. Cholesterol in the sub-200 range recommended by traditional medical authorities is associated with SHORTER lifespans. Consider this 8-year study of 1...

A pill for Alzheimers? Philip Haydon's promising research

http://now.tufts.edu/articles/alzheimer-s-hope I infer from the breezy way the author describes the success of the initial study that it used a surrogate endpoint - amyloid accumulation - rather than something real like cognitive status. I'm skeptical of the treatment but appreciate very much the fu...

Re: Hello! New to the site

Welcome, Veronika. I can relate to your story. Like you, I'm a middle-aged (54) ε3/ε4 with kids and a parent (father, age 76, ε3/ε4) in decline. He's mid-stage, no longer driving but still able to live at home with my mother. I learned of my ε3/ε4 status four years ago and, like George, I immediatel...

Re: Brainstorming about our 2017 meet-up!

I think we're talking about Dr. Georgia Ede, who is an entirely different person from Dr. Michael Eades. :-)

Re: New member - keto dieter with 3/4

Libertina, I don't see anything amiss with your lipids - key ratios like TC/HDL and TG/HDL are optimal, and your TC level is well-supported by this 8-year study of 100,000+ people without preexisting diabetes or heart disease. Besides being exceptionally high powered and lengthy, this study is espec...

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...
