Re: Question about testosterone

Not sure. However, I read a article recently about men that have been given treatment to lower testosterone (for prostate cancer) had a higher incidence of dementia - than those not given the treatment. This may or may not correlate to the effect of some testosterone in women.

Re: study: Tb vaccine lowers AD risk.

Also, some medicines used to treat TB, methylene blue and artemisinin, seem to show action against AD. Oddly, these are also used for malaria - maybe because they are both at least somewhat antibiotic?

Re: A Study Where ApoE 4 Is Associated With Longevity

My guess is a higher percentage of none APOE4 died at an earlier age from parasites or microbes. E4 confers some immunity benefits.

Re: blood pressure medi improves blood flow to hippocampus

Re: Worn a fitness tracker during practice?

Hi, I have 2 fitness trackers. A garmin vivosmart 3 and a Fitbit 2 I think. Both are useful. Both have different features that I like. They are both useful for resting heart rate, and sleep time (and type of sleep). The heart rate monitor functionality can lose accuracy depending on which exercise. ...
