Re: L-serine research

Thanks all for posting. Earlier today I posted about the Fortune article over on the Our Stories forum and asked if anyone heard of this. And they pointed me here. Didn't realize it was such old news, yet trials are due. The list of foods is pretty much what I eat (except eggs), and I agree it'd be ...

L-Serine

Below is a link to this month's cover story in Fortune Magazine. It is on L-Serine and its possible help with patients of ALS and Alzheimer's. What is the latest you've heard on this? The article ends with a visit to a town in Japan without the diseases, and says "“Wouldn’t you know it! The Ogi...

Re: New Member with one e4 copy.

I would also say that caregiving can be hell. I belong to the local United Way Caregivers Coalition. I go actually for caring for myself. Lots to learn and share, very supportive. And I see such difficult situations that caregivers have in caring for others, often multiple people. Do you have good s...

Re: New Member with one e4 copy.

23andme test states I have one e4 variant. How do I find out what the other variants are? You can click to download your data set from 23andMe to your computer (look to the right of your name at the top right for menu choices - browse raw data). From there you can upload the file to the promethease...

Re: New 3/4 with 4/4 husband both focusing on prevention

... I've been lurking on forums for years ... I wrote some of my thoughts to another post you can read, but I also like your idea of limiting saturated fat sources. I have great cholesterol - that ties to everything it seems like heart health and dementia - that I believe may relate to a diet for o...

Re: New and Suffering from Analysis Paralysis

I never thought that what I ate was causing my inflammation … eliminating dairy, sugar, soy, peanuts, corn, wheat (all grains) and eggs turned my life around in a short amount of time. My gastro doc put me on something like what you did but more specific - the FODMAP diet. It eliminates foods that ...

Re: New Member

Sugar substitutes are artificial processed food-like substances, and therefore not recommended for any healthy diet. A good point. My FODMAP diet per gastro doc eliminates things that tend to irritate your gut, (you can bring them back one at a time to see how your gut responds), and includes fake ...
