  • High Carbs and Alzheimer’s Disease

    Posted on March 26, 2014 by in Chronic Disease

    I listened to part of a segment on our public station, KERA yesterday, I believe it was. I think it was the organization’s president who was being interviewed. She didn’t know the cause of Alzheimer’s and said something must be done because it’s becoming so prevalent. High blood-sugar levels, such as those linked with Type 2 diabetes, make beta amyloid protein associated with Alzheimer’s disease dramatically more toxic to cells lining blood vessels in the brain, according to a new Tulane University study published in latest issue of theJournal of Alzheimer’s Disease. The crises of Alz’s makes sense because so many more have diabetes and the majority do not control their blood sugars. I don’t think it’s cause is such a mystery. My intuition tells me those who are unwilling to make a connection to the underlying cause or the underlying aggravater of the diseases they are trying to sort out, don’t because they get to have a constant stream of research money coming in. If cancer were to be treated as the symptom that it is and the real causes brought out in the light of day, the funding of that war would stop. People would be out of a job. Hope I’m wrong about the Alzheimer’s Association. Are you looking hard enough? Is there really a motivation to get at the source of why others develop Alz’s and others don’t. Apparently, we all have some plaque in our brain at some point but a growing number have toxic plaque. Have you looked at the diabetes trend compared to Alz’s trend? Then look at the growth in restaurants when the Restaurant Association started. Then, look at the growth in obesity next to growth in diabetes next to growth in restaurants, fast food, and processed food starting from the change in American Agriculture.
