Re: Effect of living near a busy road- increases dementia risk

Good one, Stavia. These findings raise important questions. First, regarding Parkinsonism and MS, the numbers were smaller so it may be that a small effect from location near a busy road was missed. Who knows? Here are some more cogent questions before we assume that there is some environmental toxi...

Re: For those of us with elevated Lp(a)

Here's a study that shows ApoE4 is associated with reduced Lp(a). http://www.lipidjournal.com/article/S1933-2874(14)00087-7/fulltext?mobileUi=0 Here's something more recent that looked at Lp(a), not with apoE4, and found that higher Lp(a) levels seem protective against dementia (not necessarily Alzh...

Re: For those of us with elevated Lp(a)

I'm new here so forgive this question. Is the concern about Lp(a) because some here have an elevated level or because there is some link between ApoE4 and Lp(a)? In general, people ApoE4 tend to have a lower Lp(a) than E2 and E3, but there are exceptions.

Thanks.

Re: Message from Food Revolution Network and Dr. Greger

I am easily seduced by hyperpalatable food. If I don't regulate my eating strictly, I don't do well. So I plan me meals the day before and eat only that. It works for me. The hardest part has been social navigating. What do you do when the host offers you his/her special dish? What do you say when y...

Re: Message from Food Revolution Network and Dr. Greger

The hard parts for me are eating while traveling and social gatherings. In the latter, food is much more than just nutrition.

Re: Message from Food Revolution Network and Dr. Greger

Esselstyn, Greger, Katz, and Ornstein are heavy hitters in lifestyle medicine. From the outside it seems like they are in an echo chamber. But in the American Academy of Lifestyle Medicine meetings, the differences become accentuated. There are polite arguments and even some temper flairs occasional...
