Alzheimer’s Pathology Linked to Diet

May 6, 2021 – “people who followed a Mediterranean-style diet closely had less amyloid and tau pathology, increased brain volume in regions vulnerable to Alzheimer’s disease and better memory performance, a cross-sectional analysis in Germany showed.” Earlier research showed that a Mediterranean diet — high in fish, vegetable, fruits and nuts, low in meat and dairy products — may be linked to a “reduced risk for cognitive impairment” and fewer early signs of Alzheimer’s disease. Really – do we need a study to tell us that vegetable, fruits and nuts are better than processed foods? I am always amazed that…

COVID-19 – An Alternative Approach


The COVID-19 virus pandemic is literally scaring everyone in the world because of the unknowns that are associated with this virus. So, I would like to provide some scientific information that most people have found useful in these uncertain times. First – what is the difference between a bacterium and a virus and why is a virus so much harder to kill? This is a great question and once you understand the difference, it will make complete sense. The primary reason these two pathogens are different is due to their structure. A bacterium as a membrane or a cell wall, like all the…

Antidepressants – Tied to Significant Increase in Risk for Death


According to a study released on September 21, 2017, researchers found that use of antidepressants is associated with an increased risk of all-cause death by at least 33%! They are very harmful to the general population, but also much less effective than previously thought. My take – This is an incredible finding because it basically says that doctors and the pharmaceutical industry that produces these dangerous drugs, don’t really know how they work. Or worse, they know, but are hiding the truth from everyone. Depression and anxiety are complex issues, but the treatment should not produce a worse outcome than…

Diabetes – A National Tragedy and Disgrace


According to a new study released by the CDC, Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in July 2017, 100 million Americans have diabetes or are pre-diabetic – and this is both a tragedy and disgrace. Why? Because Type 2 Diabetes – T2D – is 100% preventable. How? Because T2D is caused by what people eat – their DIET!!! Today, the Standard American Diet – SAD for short – has almost no nutritional value, is void of vitamins and minerals and has substantially too many simple carbohydrates. How is T2D preventable? Because before someone becomes diabetic, their blood work will show…

Statins and the Risk of Cancer

cancer cells

People who met eligibility criteria for statin therapy had almost DOUBLE the cancer incidence of people who did not meet criteria for the lipid-modifying agents – data from the Framingham Heart Study showed. Framingham participants eligible for statin therapy had a cancer incidence of 15.5% compared with 8.8% for those who did not meet statin eligibility criteria. Statin-eligible study participants had a ten-fold higher cancer mortality. My Take – while this study went on to say that these results do not suggest that statins themselves are a cancer risk, there is no doubt in my mind that any foreign substance…

Ketone Metabolism – A New Approach to Alzheimer’s


A session, dedicated to the topic of brain ketone metabolism and ketogenic interventions was held during the recent Alzheimer’s Assocation International Conference (AAIC) 2017, with new clinical data showing some exciting preliminary observations. Alzheimer’s disease causes the brain to lose its ability to use glucose to produce energy and in some areas of the brain, glucose metabolism is down 40%, this according to Stephen Cunnane, PhD, University of Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. Preliminary studies presented suggest that the brain can use ketones instead of glucose to reduce the energy gap. So by supplying the brain with Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCTs), the energy…

Depression – Linked to High Sugar Intake

Cookies, candy, donuts, jelly beans, marshmallows

According to a new study published in the journal Scientific Reports, there is a strong association between the amount of sugar a man consumes and an increased risk of depression. Dr. Anika Knuppel from the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at the Unviersity College London, analyzed sugar intake from food and drinks and the occurance of common mental disorders. Adults in Britain consumed almost twice the recommended level of added sugar in their diets and saw that increased risk. Analysis was completed on sweet foods (cakes/biscuits/etc) and drinks and coffee and tea with added sugar and found that men…

Third Leading Cause of Death in USA

In 1999, a study was published, stating that “medical errors”, cause an estimated 100,000 unnecessary deaths in the US – EVERY YEAR! However, a new, more sophisticated study is being published by Dr. Martin Makary, a professor of surgery and health policy at John Hopkins School of Medicine, stating that the actual deaths cause by medical errors, is really much, much higher. Dr. Makary and his team, conservatively estimate that more than 251,000 people die each year from medial errors, making medical errors, the third leading cause of death in the US, only behind heart disease and cancer. But the…

Proton Pump Inhibitors – Really?

Did you know that almost all human health comes from the gut or gastrointestinal system? What you eat has a tremendous impact on your health, but for many individuals, even if they try to eat healthy foods, they still feel bad and experience gas, belching, bloating, constipation and even diarrhea on a daily basis. These people go to their medical doctor, who tells them that they have too much acid in their system and then puts them on something called a PPI or proton pump inhibitor. PPI’s work by reducing acid produced in the stomach. But is this what is…

Poor Diet is Killing Americans

March 9, 2017 – Is this real News? Apparently, to some people it is, but what people are eating – or are not eating – is KILLING them! A new research report just released demonstrates that a low intake of nuts/seeds, Omega 3, vegetables, and fruits and a high intake of processed meats and sugar-sweetened beverages, are the primary reasons for a “substantial” proportion of deaths in the US due to heart disease. The study was published in the medical journal JAMA on March 7th, and presented to the American Heart Association of Epidemiology and Prevention. The study estimates that…
