Re: Strawberries and 34% lower risk of AD in Rush Memory Cohort

I think this forum in particular should do better to answer this concern. And I think this forum is doing a wonderful job already by providing an opportunity for all to share their experiences. Dr. Gundy has satisfied patients and non-patient adherents as well as skeptics and naysayers. In my opini...

Re: APOE 4/4 Specific diet - Dr. Gundry or not?

So what is it, does this forum support his Diet approach for 4/4's with empirical evidence or is it more blind faith? I don't think a consensus regarding the scope of applicability of Dr. Gundry's protocol exists here. That said, I haven't seen much in the way of "blind faith". I think th...

Re: The Ketogenic Diet: A Neurologist’s Warning

I wonder how connective tissue disorders might influence the results. I think for those individuals the vessels are already supposed to be less stiff due to the weaker connective tissues that line them. Maybe it's something other than the connective tissue, and independent from it, and not influenc...

Re: Lead and Cadmium in Chocolate

The "ND" readings for a few samples are so rare and inconsistent that I do not count on them. When I filter by Endangered Species / 65-95% Cacao and sort by product, I see three entries for Natural Dark 72 and two for ND 88 (my personal staple): ND72 2016: 0.022 ppm, 0.9 ug/serv lead; 0.04...

Re: Attia email: LDL-C, blood pressure, and CVD risk

Parsing your words ... leaves out Statin users(which makes the study flawed) Exclude statin users = "study flawed" if you leave the statin users in you are again confounding Include statin users = "confounding" By this logic, all lipid studies conducted since the inception of sta...

Re: Attia email: LDL-C, blood pressure, and CVD risk

Great point, NewRon. I split the topic at the point that the link to Attia's email, which was about CVD risk, not Alzheimer's, was introduced.

Re: Blood Pressure Treatment Drastically Reduces Alzheimer’s Incidence

They left out Statin users thereby confounding the population pool they sampled from. This results in a sampling bias as the high cholesterol portion that has high cardiovascular risk would be left out. The entire study screened out people with existing diabetes and heart disease, so the statin use...

Re: Saying hi and needing help

if saturated fats are bad for those with the APO4 gene Just a quick note to let you know that consensus on this point does not exist. Here's a topic linking and discussing a noted nutrition scientist's views: Chris Masterjohn on saturated fat Because some members notice that their LDL-C levels rise...

Re: Blood Pressure Treatment Drastically Reduces Alzheimer’s Incidence

That looks like a terrific new paper, Susan - great find! I didn't have any luck acquiring the full paper as it does not yet seem to be on Sci-Hub . Fortunately the abstract does a great job of hitting the high points. So there might be a corollary that you don't want high LDL with the presence of i...
