Re: Can you CATCH Alzheimer's?

The NPR report on this made a great effort to emphasize that the scientific report in no way was relating this to Alzheimer's being contagious. http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2015/09/09/438839277/brain-tissue-transplants-may-have-spread-alzheimers-protein It may be possible to transmit Alz...

Re: Dr. Steven Gundry with diet recommendations for ApoE4

Richard thanks for that note about posters. I hadn't thought of it. Dr. Gundry's work on adiponectin and TNF-alpha and AI and lectins, AFAIK, is only seen in a poster and not published in a peer reviewed format yet? When I looked earlier this year, I could not see anything from him other than the p...

Re: Alzheimer's risk reduction report

If you do a Google image search on body fat percentages, there are a variety of sites showing examples of percent fat across the spectrum. With the unreliability of the calipers, I'm of the opinion that a careful study of multiple versions of these comparison graphics will get you a pretty decent id...

Re: Dr. Steven Gundry with diet recommendations for ApoE4

Just a reminder that, as an abstract for a scientific meeting, there is minimal peer review. It carries little of the weight of a peer-reviewed paper regardless of the prominence of the journal. On the TNF-alpha front, I just had blood drawn for my level today along with oxLDL, homocysteine, and NMR...

Re: Innate Immunity and Alzheimer's Risk

That one is from Nature-Immunology . I'm being forced to split the paper into two PDF's as the original one was too large despite my attempts to reduce the unbroken file. [attachment]Innate immunity in Alzheimer's disease 2015a.pdf[/attachment] The first author, Heneka, also published in the Lancet ...

Re: Neither Exercise Nor Supplements Boost Cognition in Two Large Studies

I'd be much more shocked if Brendensen's claims held up to any kind of scrutiny. eta: by which I mean his claim of reversing LOAD progression via lifestyle changes. For now, Brendensen is gaining notoriety because of being one of the very few to report on a multi-pronged lifestyle intervention for ...

Re: Will Smith's new movie

You can be sure some concussion experts will be interviewed when it is release. I think the best impact we may have is to flag those people to contact and push the E4 message. However, I think such journalistic nuances will be lost in our sound bite world.

Re: Neither Exercise Nor Supplements Boost Cognition in Two Large Studies

It looks more and more like prevention is our best hope under the current state of medicine. It looks like after so much damage is done, it cannot be undone (yet). I think that is a good assessment. My impression is that there becomes a point where a cascade of pathology feeds on itself - a negativ...

Re: Question to those who've watched someone transition to MCI/AD

I saw with my father and heard saw clinically as a post-doc in a memory disorders clinic that motivation, physical activity and decline in eating habits can be seen in the earliest stages. Unfortunately, there is a huge overlap with depression there. Depression can mimic some signs of MCI and AD and...

Re: "Aterofisiol" (EPA, DHA, K2:MK7, B6, B12, grape skin) in carotid plaque evolution

Read the full text. A solid looking study with supposedly no conflicts of interest. Definitely reinforces the anti-inflammatory approach to vascular health.
