Re: Family Connections to Alzheimer's and

I like that suggestion, slacker. My father died very young; no idea if he'd have developed AD. My Mom has some signs, but no formal DX. Given the very long prodromal period, I suspect that many of our parents have the pathology without a formal label. It also might be a good idea to add cognitive de...

Re: Effect of Canola Oil on Brain

Welcome, genec! Excellent insight, if true. Failure to account for caloric intake is a huge problem. Can you point towards your source of information?

Re: Effect of Canola Oil on Brain

Good find! I wish the study authors had specified the process used to extract the oil from the plant. Typically, a combination of heat and hexane (rancidity/toxicity) is used in making canola oil. I've heard cold pressed rapeseed oil is becoming more readily available. It would be interesting to see...

Re: Betty's Lab results

Waves, Betty! Sorry about your strange experience. I agree that it's a smart move to follow through on a calcium scan. That should offer you important information moving forward. Overall, your biomarkers look good; lots of improvements. One thing that surprises me is your rise in sdLDL (from 21-30) ...

New evidence suggests the Alzheimer's epidemic is set to EXPLODE

STUNNING new evidence suggests that close to 50 million Americans could be in the early stages leading to Alzheimer’s disease right now, according to a new forecast out of UCLA. And 6 million people likely have it now. (Five million + is the stat typically used.) You can see the press release here. ...

Re: Found out I carry the PSAN1 gene is this a death sentence?

{{{Giftsplash}}} Deep breath, my friend. I wish I had an easy answer for you. I'm unsure if a single PSEN1 snp is causative. As you can see by this list, there are many. Do you have a strong family history? Many affected family members? Especially affected at a young age? I would suggest making an a...

Re: Biomarker Information Spreadsheet

WOW!!! :D What an amazing resource, Circ. I can see that you've been hard at work. My only suggestion is that it needs to be featured more prominently. Is it available via the wiki? If so, I can't find it... Let's consider adding it to Table of Contents so it will be easier to access. On behalf of t...
