Re: Neck Blood Vessel scan predicts dementia 10 years earlier

of course it was personal. what else could it b when she singles me out of 3,000 people on this site to try to school in what the definition of dementia is. she's never done that to anyone else on this site, I'm sure. I see 40 people w dementia 13 out of every 14 days at my wife's facility . in 2018...

Re: Neck Blood Vessel scan predicts dementia 10 years earlier

mike, nope, u need to look at page 2 of the topic "Bredesen and de la Torre Divergence". slacker seems to think Bredesen is beyond any criticism at all, and she was clearly angry that I corrected her on the nature of the "36 holes in the roof" question. obviously, my one sentence...

Re: Neck Blood Vessel scan predicts dementia 10 years earlier

u r wrongly using vascular dementia and the vascular hypothesis of AD interchangeably, but they r 2 very different things. all scientists , including Bredesen, define vascular dementia as a form of dementia involving strokes or mini-strokes. the vascular hypothesis is a theory as to the cause of AD,...

Re: Neck Blood Vessel scan predicts dementia 10 years earlier

clearly more support for the vascular hypothesis of AD by the UTexas guys, de la Torre and G-L. L.

Re: Bredesen and de la Torre (and G-L) divergence

actually, the "36 holes in the roof" constitute the ReCode Protocol ( which is chapter 10) and they all can b measured by lab results. as Bredesen says (p,82) , "the lab results reveal the size of each hole for each person". and all 36 impact whether APP is cleaved in 2 or 4 (bad...

Re: Bredesen and de la Torre (and G-L) divergence

thanx much, Julie. this has probably been proposed before, but it occurred to me last night that some kind of SCORECARD might b very helpful to members here, where there is a tally of the number of people using some version of ReCODE or something similar and what % r showing stabilization, small rev...

Re: Bredesen and de la Torre (and G-L) divergence

Julie, the only reference to mitochondrial function in "The End of AD" I could find was 1 1/2 pages which did not mention reduced cerebral blood flow or glucose at all, but referred simply to several chemicals that can damage mitochondria such as antibiotics, statins, alcohol, NSAIDS, coca...

Re: Bredesen and de la Torre (and G-L) divergence

Roher 2011 found a major narrowing (80% or more) in many autopsies of AD patients in the circle of Willis artery (brain) versus only minor narrowing in cognitively normal patients autopsies. same was true in internal carotid and vertebral arteries. seems clear atherosclerosis is a major risk factor ...

Re: Bredesen and de la Torre (and G-L) divergence

Bredesen says growing evidence that neither amyloid plaques or tangles is the cause of AD, yet nearly his entire thesis hinges on the 2 ways he believes APP, as a dependent receptor , can b cleaved. de la Torre never mentions "dependent receptor" (probably should have), because old mice w ...

Bredesen and de la Torre (and G-L) divergence

as someone who gave 9 copies of "The End of AD" to family and friends, it would b wonderful to think that Dr. Bredesen has essentially solved the mystery of AD, to the exclusion of other theories of it, such as the "vascular hypothesis" of Jack de la Torre and Francisco Gonzalez-...
