Tau Proteins Very Similar To Prions

Prion Science Still Unfolding Neurodegenerative disease is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. Prion disease is responsible for the vast majority of the surge in humans and other mammals. Professor Goedert, a program leader at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, believes our best hope of fighting dementia requires predicting who … Continue reading Tau Proteins Very Similar To Prions

Simple Steps To Protect Your Brain

Nutrition, Exercise The Best Defense Against Alzheimer’s Disease As we age, cognitive decline is common, there is much that we can do to boost our brainpower, while promoting overall health. Neuroplasticity means the brain can grow, rewire, adapt and strengthen when properly stimulated. Recent studies suggest physical and mental exercise, a healthy diet and other … Continue reading Simple Steps To Protect Your Brain

Patients With Neurodegenerative Disease Produce Infectious Waste

Caregivers Caught In The Crossfire Of Misinformation, Mismanagement Neurodegenerative disease is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. Alzheimer’s disease alone is taking the lives of 50-100 million people now. Despite millions of Alzheimer’s-related fatalities annually, experts suggest that the prevalence of the disease among the living will quadruple by 2050, if not sooner. Some advocates are … Continue reading Patients With Neurodegenerative Disease Produce Infectious Waste

Preventing Dementia A Major Challenge

New Report Offers Little Hope In Battle Against Neurodegenerative Disease By Sharon Begley, STAT Alzheimer’s disease drug treatments have met failure after failure. Many people have decided that prevention is the only hope. Unfortunately, a U.S. panel of experts claims that prevention might be just as elusive as a cure. From physical activity to avoiding high … Continue reading Preventing Dementia A Major Challenge

Alzheimer’s Disease Influenced By Acidity

pH Level Might Deter, Slow Progression Of Alzheimer’s Disease Prion diseases are scary, incurable and fatal. They first gained notoriety when cows became infected by prion proteins and, in turn, infected people. Fervor surrounding mad cow disease resulted in the U.S. banning imports of beef from the European Union for 15 years. New research led … Continue reading Alzheimer’s Disease Influenced By Acidity

Is Alzheimer’s Disease Contagious

Science, Evidence Proving Transmissibility If you think that you and your family are immune to the surging epidemic of neurodegenerative disease, think again. Neurodegenerative disease, including Alzheimer’s disease, is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. It’s getting worse every day thanks to mismanagement and misinformation. Infectious proteins known as prions are involved with most forms of neurodegenerative disease. … Continue reading Is Alzheimer’s Disease Contagious

Wastewater Treatment Plants Spreading Brain Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease An Infectious Disease Neurodegenerative diseases are the fastest-growing causes of death around the world. The mismanagement of infectious waste is contributing to the epidemic. Dr. Stanley Prusiner earned a Nobel Prize in 1997 for his pioneering research on deadly prions—an infectious form of protein that connects a deadly spectrum disease called transmissible spongiform … Continue reading Wastewater Treatment Plants Spreading Brain Disease

Asians At Higher Risk For Dementia

DNA Analysis Reveals Key Genetic Mutations, Therapies By Joana Fernandes, PhD Researchers reviewed the novel mutations found in genes associated with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease in Asian countries, arguing that identifying disease-associated mutations greatly contributes to the knowledge of the cause and effect of the disease. This information is also essential to develop preventive and therapeutic strategies. The study, “Mutations, Associated With … Continue reading Asians At Higher Risk For Dementia

Pomegranate Seeds Treat Neurodegenerative Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease Treated With Antioxidant Granalix BioTechnologies has developed a new treatment for those with Alzheimer’s disease. The company announced the availability of GranaGard™ a food supplement based on pomegranate oil that helps prevent neurodegeneration. GranaGard, is a submicron Pomegranate Seed Oil (PSO) emulsion, and is an innovative formulation of one of the strongest natural … Continue reading Pomegranate Seeds Treat Neurodegenerative Disease

Wildlife Contracting Brain Disease From Humans

Chronic Wasting Disease Further Proof Of Infectious Disease Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and other forms of neurodegenerative disease are collectively becoming the leading cause of death around the world. Brain disease also continues to expand in wildlife. Is there a connection? Keep reading to find out why: Alzheimer’s disease is part of a spectrum disease known as … Continue reading Wildlife Contracting Brain Disease From Humans
