You can find it published Monday Dec. 30/2013, in the journal JAMA Neurology. Having been an author and researcher in the areas of heart disease, cholesterol and Alzheimer’s Disease for over a decade, I can share with you that the findings in this study (are in my opinion), remarkable. Notably, the study’s conclusions supporting an adverse link between elevated cholesterol and Alzheimer’s (the hallmark and cause) of this neuro-degenerative disease must be considered. Dr. Charles DeCarli, director of the Alzheimer’s Disease Center and the study co-author, called the work “a wake-up call.
Last year alone, Alzheimer’s cost the American healthcare system 200B and as baby boomers are coming of age, perhaps the biggest threat to healthcare is this brain robbing, Alzheimer’s Disease. http://www.abigon.com/page/page/448087.htm What is misleading in the statistical amount spent on AD is the fact that an additional of 210B in expenditure went unpaid, as it was donated free of charge by volunteer and family healthcare givers. As the disease progresses, AD patients need extensive care, supervision and eventually even 24/7 oversight. cholesterol and Alzheimer’s.

If you would like to learn some of the cutting edge information on AD and what you can do to protect yourself and your family read, about to learn from how UCLA researchers at the Geffen School of Medicine have found less than 1% of elderly villagers (over 65) have any signs of Alzheimer’s or even dementia. Here is the good news, they found as did researchers from Duke University in North Carolina that the ancient spice turmeric keeps beta amyloid plaque (subject of the study we are reporting on) from forming in the brain. It now appears from many studies that the answer for arresting amyloid plaque formation happens to be turmeric and as importantly, the answer to neutralizing the plaque in the event it has already formed, is also, turmeric.
