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

This thread is my hands-down forum favorite! I relish all the information sharing, the brilliant arguments presented, the clearly strong personalities, the underlying good humor and respect for differing conclusions and decisions, and the brave journey to brain health each one of us undertakes anew ...

Re: Any danger in sharing APOE e4/e4 status

Hoo boy, this is a subject near and dear to my extremely risk-averse heart! I have told my children absolutely not to get tested with 23andme or any related service.

She clearly lived life on her own terms and fiercely loved her connection with you and the rest of her family. Having cared for both of my parents and helping...

Re: URGENT: Biomarker Study Opportunity for ApoE4.Info Members

What a great opportunity! Count me in as 4/4! My sister has no 4's and would probably participate with me in the Biomarker Study. We are in our 60s. I will be interested on how and when folks get started after having completed the poll.

I was teased by my husband about my own fairly high Neanderthal percentage that is greater than of 60% of 23andme folk. Since the Neander Valley appears to be in what is now Germany, I thought it made...
