Re: Shock news from 23and me.

I was taught that evolution was survival of the fittest, which begs the question, what am I doing here? My genes should have been eliminated thousands of years ago. As far as I know, other than gluten sensitivities, those diseases wouldn't normally affect your ability to reproduce and continue the ...

Re: Higher phosphatidylcholine protects against dementia

I was disappointed to see in this Cochrane review https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12917896 that supplementing with lecithin as a source of choline does not protect against dementia (in patients with dementia).

Here's an NIH fact sheet that covers specific groups that are susceptible for a choline deficiency. You'll note that It even div...
