Alzheimer’s death rate jumps significantly

Dementia is a chronic neurodegenerative condition that leads to difficulty remembering recent events and problems with language, behavioral issues, and difficulties with self-care. Nearly 70 percent of all cases of dementia are caused by Alzheimer’s disease. An estimated 5.1 million Americans are affected. According to a new report by the Centers for Disease Control and here to read more

New research may explain the reasons behind normal aging and Alzheimer’s disease

The most common neurodegenerative disease and source of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease. The condition is often associated with clumps of protein called beta amyloid that aggregate in the brain, leading to symptoms of memory loss and other cognitive deficits. These clumps are created due to misfolded proteins that have lost the elaborate shape that dictates here to read more

Confusion in Alzheimer’s disease patients linked to silent seizures

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia characterized by memory loss and decline in other cognitive abilities, resulting in difficulty completing everyday tasks in those affected by the condition. While some degree of memory decline and cognitive problems is common for the elderly, Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of aging, and here to read more


Postmenopausal hormone therapy may help prevent dementia

The University of Eastern Finland has found an association between postmenopausal estrogen-based hormone therapy and a decreased risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s is one of the most prevalent forms of dementia, especially among women, so these findings indicate that the female sex hormones—estrogen and progesterone—may be useful in preventing its onset and preserving cognitive ability here to read more

Intestinal bacteria linked to Alzheimer’s disease

Research from Lund University has found a link between intestinal bacteria and the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Gut bacteria interact with the immune system, intestinal mucosa, and your diet, and can affect your health and well-being. The team studied mice both with and without Alzheimer’s and compared the composition of their intestinal bacteria. Those with here to read more

Grapes may help prevent Alzheimer’s: Study

A recent study conducted by the University of California, Los Angeles, has found that regularly consuming grapes may protect against the decline of metabolic activity in those with early memory decline, preventing Alzheimer’s. Low metabolic activity in certain areas of the brain is a characteristic of the early stages of Alzheimer’s, and the study showed here to read more

Air pollution may cause dementia in women

Research led by the University of Southern California is showing that air pollution may significantly increase the risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, particularly in older women. The team of scientists and engineers discovered that older women who live in areas with air pollution that exceeds the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s standard have an here to read more

Can mushrooms prevent Alzheimer’s?

New research published in the Journal of Medicinal Food has shown that the bioactive components of certain edible and medicinal mushrooms may aid in the prevention and delay of dementia. Researchers from the University of Malaya have suggested that the activity of the bioactive compounds in certain mushrooms may aid in the growth of nerves here to read more
