IMPORTANT: Change to our Community Guidelines!

Friends, I vividly recall the launch of our site back in late October of 2013. So many people from all over the world, who were just learning about their ApoE4 status through 23andMe, were eagerly embracing the concept of a community based around our risky genetic status. We were all trying to figur...

NYTs: What if you knew Alzheimer's was coming for you?

Great coverage of our project! Knowledge of ApoE4 status provides an opportunity to proactively focus on health optimization. We ARE creating a revolution to disrupt Alzheimer's disease as we know it. Thanks to Pagan Kennedy (who also covered this ApoE4 story ) and the New York Times for continuing ...

Re: Diet help. Please post what is working for you!

So you and Julie do not consume butter, ghee, soft cheese. Your fats are primarily avocado and olive oil.

True, and lots of nuts. Very occasionally, I'll put a dab of ghee in my coffee. I recently found a grass-fed, vanilla-infused variety, YUM.

Go NUTS for brain health!

An interesting new study out of Loma Linda shows that nuts are particularly helpful for brain health as they strengthen brainwave activity. Peanuts (actually a legume), pistachios, almonds, pecans, walnuts, and cashews were each found to have beneficial properties with very specific, yet different, ...

Re: My version of a Ketogenic Diet

Thanks, deborahk. My guess is that specifically addressing this aspect of our gene would be helpful. I also think it's encouraging that the keto diet was on her radar. I'm very excited about the POINTER Study and thrilled that dietary/lifestyle strategies are finally being studied in a RCT here in t...

Re: Mild Ketosis and MCT for 4/4 with high LDL

I would really love some input on this. I just started measuring my ketones with a breath meter. First thing in the morning it is .2 or .3g/L which converts to 1.5 or 2.3 mmol/L. Then after exercising and drinking only water it is .0. I have read and friends have witnessed that taking MCT oil susta...

Re: Alcohol

We had the Dry Farm wines (recommended by Nancy above) at our last meet-up. They were delicious, but a bit pricey.

Re: Guy Eats 100% Fish with no Change in Cholesterol

Weird story. Who eats fish to improve their cholesterol? Wouldn't all of the side dishes and his overall macronutrient ratios play a part? Too many unknown variables. Also, no surprise that his mercury was high as he was eating fish known to be high in mercury. Anything new for us?
