Oh, I do I hear you! Until a couple of years ago, we had 2 lab black mixes. Constant cleaning for dirt, grit and hair!!!

Well, maybe a little high for anyone with COPD who can barely breath at sea level. ;)

We'll definitely miss seeing you guys, and especially during the parade of lights!

Re: Housework could keep brain young, research suggests

By the way, Buzz Away is an herbal insect repellent that works well for my husband, whom mosquitoes love. I'm on the mosquito buffet menu, too, so thanks for the tip. Fortunately there aren't many at the RV park we're staying at. Remains to be seen about the house we bought. Off to shake out the ru...

Re: Housework could keep brain young, research suggests

Moving to Florida to take on a caregiving gig is a whole different matter. For a long time we thought we'd be bringing my hub's sister to Colorado at some point, but both are having health issues that preclude living at high altitudes. Moving was not an easy decision to make, but definitively the r...

Re: Housework could keep brain young, research suggests

In your small space, I’d guess you have dog hair in your own hair, all over your clothes, etc. I'm in the habit of checking everything, including the pans, plates, cup and glasses... I'm sad to think you're no longer just 730 miles way. Come back soon! We're sad, too, but we are also determined to ...

Re: Interesting paper about baking soda stimulating antiinflammatory pathways ...

Any idea whether calcium carbonate ( such as In Tums) would have a similar effect? My guess would be they would work if the effect in the study is due to a change in pH. You could also try contacting the researchers and ask them. Many are flattered that you take the time to ask questions and will r...

Re: Housework could keep brain young, research suggests

My husband and I have a German Shedder (oops, I mean German Shepherd), so dog hair will pile up to the ceiling without regular vacuuming! I hear your pain. We're currently waiting to close on a house, and living in a 20 foot travel trailer with a 60 pound lab mix who has gone from the Colorado clim...

Re: Curcumin restores innate immune Alzheimer's disease risk gene expression to ameliorate Alzheimer pathogenesis

My best guess is that curcumin is an antioxidant. Take too much of any antioxidant and you are messing with important signaling mechanisms when it comes to the immune system. And antioxidants are cumulative, so if you take others besides curcumin, you might get to that point of no effect more quickl...

Re: Interesting paper about baking soda stimulating antiinflammatory pathways ...

I think I read this review when it came out last year. The whole acid in the stomach thing kicks off a lot of different digestive functions including bile release, which can help resolve SIBO problems. Studies show RA can be linked to GI problems, so it's another piece of the puzzle of how to tweak ...
