The Evolution of Amyloid Toxicity in Alzheimer’s

The rates of dementia differ greatly around the world, from the lowest rates in Africa, India, and South Asia, to the highest rates in Western Europe and especially North America.

6 Common Myths About Aging

<strong><h5><p>For instance, studies on the brains of elderly people with and without dementia find significant blood vessel damage in those with hypertension.

Aluminum contamination implicated in dementia and bee deaths

BY Gutierrez: (NaturalNews) An insect form of Alzheimer's disease caused by aluminum contamination may be one of the causes behind an ongoing decline in populations of bees and other pollinators, according to a study conducted by researchers from the universities of Keele and Sussex and published in the journal PLOS ONE.

The researchers found that honeybees had levels of aluminum in their bodies equivalent to those that could cause brain damage in humans.

Poor sleep, low blood oxygen levels linked to brain abnormalities associated with dementia

By Antonia: (NaturalNews) Constantly stressed about something that prevents you from getting a decent night's sleep? Rather watch a late-night movie in bed than snooze? People may want to rethink these habits, as their brain health depends on it. More importantly, those who suffer from health conditions that prevent them from sleeping well may want to pay attention to the latest findings.
