Re: A blood exchange protocol significantly slows rate of decline in moderate AD patients

The book "Dumping Iron" gives a nice review of the evidence that giving blood is beneficial. Its underlying viewpoint is that it's the donation of the red blood cells, rather than the plasma, that yields the benefit. It seems like donating whole blood is a good bet either way. http://rogue...

Re: Dr. Rhonda: Get some DHA in phospholipid form

Very helpful - thanks! My understanding - probably too simplified - was that triglycerides and phospholipids were usually broken down to free fatty acids to cross the gut lining, then sometimes reformed for packaging into chylomicrons for circulation on the other side. ! Link below provides a summa...

Re: Disturbing news about E4 and HSV1

I think that factor of 12 must be too high. If 66% of the heterozygous 3/4 population had the virus, and if the virus boosted their risk by a factor 12, then in aggregate heterozygous 3/4 population would have their risk boosted by a factor of at least around 8, even if the remaining 33% of them who...

Re: Drinking Silica water prevents Alzheimer's in those with the APOE-E4 gene

Thanks Laurie -- Below is the link to the worldlifeexpectancy.com listings of Alzheimer's dementia by country. However, I remain skeptical about the reliability. The table implies for example that Alzheimer's is 164 times more prevalent in Finland than in Singapore. One would think that would be wid...

Re: Drinking Silica water prevents Alzheimer's in those with the APOE-E4 gene

The article says that Alzheimer's deaths per 100,000 is about 10 times lower in Japan than in the US. Is that widely accepted? It just doesn't seem plausible to me. The paper below reports that Japan has 1.1 million cases of dementia, and the US has 2.9 million. The US has about 3 times the populati...

Re: Dr. Rhonda: Get some DHA in phospholipid form

There is a Nordic Naturals product labeled "Omega 3 Phospholipids":

That seems like a good bet to me, and I take it, for what it's worth, but I'm not a health care professional by any means.

Dr. Rhonda: Get some DHA in phospholipid form

Dr. Rhonda Patrick has an impressive new paper. The takeaway is that APOE4s aren't as able to get DHA where it needs to go unless the DHA is in phospholipid form. This explains, she says, why most studies of fish oil supplements indicate no benefit, yet fish in the diet does show benefit. Seems very...

Re: Associations of protein and fiber with Amyloid-β

It's nice to see some pro-protein research results! I was kind of disappointed with Valter Longo's book. I think he is more biased against animal products than the evidence justifies. He advocates eating low protein when you're young and then boosting it when you're older, maybe it was over 70. I we...

Re: Exercise, muscles, mTOR, IGF-1, brain health, and cancer

I'm biased. I do Crossfit and believe I have gotten great benefit from it. Someone named "Camron" gives a pretty thorough takedown review on Amazon. In short, whenever Gundry cites the literature, it's misleading. For example, rather than cite a refereed article in a decent journal, he'll ...
