Re: Can lithium halt progression of Alzheimer's disease?

Re: In Medical News Today: What causes Alzheimer's? Not toxic amyloid, new study suggests

If one were looking at the research field as a whole today, globally, which biomarker is the predominate leader in practice for AD related trials? A beta-amyloid tracer or tau tracer? I'm looking for a back of the napkin type answer here, 60/40, or 80/20 with some % using both. ... Can "it dep...

Re: Strawberries and 34% lower risk of AD in Rush Memory Cohort

Thanks for the response, but to be blunt, I think this forum in particular should do better to answer this concern... If we haven't done this yet, what do WE need to do as the community to get to this answer? Again, I'm in my 40's, so partaking in an actual trial and documenting the results are pos...

Re: Strawberries and 34% lower risk of AD in Rush Memory Cohort

Isn't this counter to Dr. Gundry's anti-lectin diet? Hi dfmcapecod, As a 67 year old 4/4, I have come to accept a fairly wide level of ambiguity in my life! I saw your post asking for a clear answer on Dr. Gundry's protocol and the only honest answer, in my opinion, is that no one diet or food can ...
