Re: Best macadamia nut source (for keto diet)

How does one assess the quality of a macadamia nut?

I'm asking as a guy who had a macadamia tree in our back yard, and cut it down because of all the mess it makes... and the rodents it attracts.

Re: Alzheimer's caregivers, guardians, and conservators

I am new to this forum, but wonder if it is current since the posts I am seeing seem mostly from 2015-2017 Yep, the topic is current although the events occurred from 2008-17. I wrote most of it while my father was approaching end-stage Alzheimer's. He died in November 2017, so my life shifted from...

Re: Neck Blood Vessel scan predicts dementia 10 years earlier

Please couch further posts accordingly. I would've suggested that posters could put other posters on "Ignore", but this forum doesn't seem to show that feature. As a moderator on other forums, I've found the Ignore feature quite useful at defusing confrontations. Is it not turned on, or d...

Re: Article on extended family raising risk

At first glance it looks like a gigantic study, but the population shrinks awfully quickly: The analysis included 270,818 people with genealogy data for at least 12 immediate ancestors and a linked Utah death certificate; more than half of these individuals died after 1978. Of those people, 4,436 ha...

Re: Ibuprofen and not aspirin to prevent AD

Interesting that I have come across in reading books that Ibuprofen reduces inflammation to prevent AD but not aspirin? The trade off is potential stomach bleeding and maybe kidney issues. Is anyone doing this? I just take ibuprofen for joint pains & osteoarthritis symptoms, probably 4-5 doses ...

Re: L-serine research

http://fortune.com/longform/alzheimers-disease-cure-breakthrough/ Thanks. This L-serine theory was proposed in 2002, and in 2016 they were very enthused about 14 years of work. Over two years later, the biggest accomplishment is a Phase I trial confirming that L-serine is generally regarded as safe...

Re: For those who have children.

We started our family 20 years before we did 23andMe testing (for me, my spouse, and our daughter). At the time, our daughter was concerned that she might be susceptible to the breast cancer which killed my mother. Our daughter doesn't have the BRCA genes, and 23andMe also (belatedly) confirmed that...

Re: Alzheimer's caregivers, guardians, and conservators

Thanks, Kim, this advice is good to know. Estate Planning: Make sure the patient (someone who has already been diagnosed) is not named as a trustee or you will have to go through the procedure of getting the patient removed when he is no longer capable of handling the finances and daily living. You’...

Yeah, my reflex reaction to the research was that it’s great news for mice.

I’d hate to learn someday that the mouse model only translates to a small percentage of humans and we’ve all been pouring the research money down a... rathole.
