Brain 'Rust' Could Be The Real Alzheimer's Trigger

Post by Riddick » 07-29-2017 11:03 PM

Cleaning out "rust" from the brain could be a way to slow and even prevent Alzheimer's, say researchers. The finding pinpoints iron as a potential driver of the degenerative disease.

Previous research has long linked Alzheimer's to a build-up in amyloid protein fragments in the brain that are normally broken down in healthy brains. But efforts to treat Alzheimer's by using drugs that reduce amyloid levels have so far failed, leading to speculation that something else is driving the disease.

New research, published in the journal Brain, suggests iron might be the culprit. Iron has a special property that allows it to exchange electrons, which is crucial in allowing our bodies to generate energy from oxygen and fuels such as sugars. But it can also damage neurons in the same way that iron metal rusts in the presence of oxygen. FULL STORY

With rust's oxidation of steel, a copious amount of proactive applied paint usually helps.

#3 diabetes is the real name but the finder got his name plastered into world health history books!

You can be proactive for brain health with any GOOD brand of any "enhanced formula" of turmeric curcumin taken daily! :)

It's 24 benefits to date are standing-by just below Riddick's eye opening entry.

#10 - May prevent and slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease by inhibiting or removing amyloid plaque buildup in the brain.

Consume more cholesterol and the lack there of ain't a bit good for thinking on your own in your later years. Soft scramble, soft yolk boiled eggs, etc, eat 4 - 8 eggs a day for a start! :wink: ... 35&t=51324

That "May" word is not doubted in India!
