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.

Green, leafy veggies slow age-related cognitive decline, making brains 11 years younger

(NaturalNews) A diet rich in green, leafy vegetables could dramatically slow age-related cognitive decline, according to a study conducted by researchers from Rush University Medical Center and presented on March 30 at the Experimental Biology 2015 meeting in Boston.

The researchers found that much of the protective benefit from the greens came from vitamin K, which the body synthesizes from a precursor found at high levels in green leafy vegetables.

A tasty way to help prevent cardiovascular disease, cancer, and dementia

By Fassa: (NaturalNews) Up until a few decades ago, blueberries didn't have the superfood status they rightfully claim now. As a matter of fact, they were considered lacking in nutrition. Since then, serious testing and analysis have proven blueberries are truly tasty, medicinal foods.

Blueberries are native to North America. The American Indians, who used them as food and medicine, showed early Massachusetts European colonists the bushes containing them. Prior to that, Europeans only knew of blueberries' cousin - bilberries.

These "medications" scientifically make you slower, dumber, and at greater risk for dementia

By Johnson: (NaturalNews) True medicine does no harm and promotes self healing within. Modern medicine operates in the exact opposite manner. Nearly all pharmaceuticals mask symptoms while throwing off vital inner workings of various systems of the body. For instance, a specific class of drugs has been shown to make users slower and dumber, delaying their cognitive processes. On top of that, these drugs, which include some very common over-the-counter and prescription meds, scientifically put users at greater risk of dementia.

Study On B Vitamins and Dementia Slammed

By TRACI PEDERSEN Associate News Editor: A study published last year claiming that B vitamins play no role in preventing dementia is coming under sharp criticism.

Medical experts are concerned that patients who are in the earliest stages of dementia could miss out on a potentially effective treatment if they follow the research which they say is misleading.

New study shows these common over-the-counter drugs linked to Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia

By Sinclair: (NaturalNews) A new study clearly shows common over-the-counter medications widely used for asthma, allergies, and insomnia increase the risk for dementia. The study also found that the risk may not be reversible, even after several years off of these medications.

Three superfoods that can support brain function and prevent cognitive decline

People have long believed that cognitive decline is an inherent and inevitable symptom of aging. In reality, however, most age-related mental conditions -- from minor irritations like forgetfulness to serious neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and dementia -- are the product of toxic environments, unhealthy lifestyles and poor nutrition. For this reason, there are many things that individuals of all ages can do to prevent age-related cognitive decline, including getting enough sleep and exercise, optimizing gut flora and eating foods that are rich in vitamin B12 and omega-3 fatty acids.

Aluminum intake leads to dementia; silica intake decreases risk

How much aluminum is in your drinking water? It's hard to tell, but in a 15-year study on French elderly men and women, regular consumption of tap water was associated with aluminum toxicity and increased prevalence of dementia. How might the accumulation of aluminum from just tap water alone affect your cognitive ability as you age?
