Your genes aren't the only factor dictating Alzheimer's risk
December 11, 2019
The colour of our eyes or the straightness of our hair is linked to our DNA, but the development of Alzheimer's disease isn't exclusively linked to genetics, suggest recently published findings.
In the first study published about Alzheimer's disease among identical triplets, researche...

Eating more ketones may fight against Alzheimer's disease
December 9, 2019
A ketone-supplemented diet may protect neurons from death during the progression of Alzheimer's disease, according to research in mice recently published in .
Early in the development of Alzheimer's disease, the brain becomes over excited, potentially through the loss of inhibitory, o...

Improving blood vessel health in brain may help combat Alzheimer's
December 5, 2019
In patients with Alzheimer's disease, amyloid-beta protein fragments accumulate in the tissue and blood vessels of the brain, likely due to a faulty clearance mechanism. In experiments conducted in mice, investigators at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) have found that very slow spontaneous v...

Skiers have lower incidence of depression and vascular dementia — but not Alzheimer's
November 26, 2019
Half as many diagnosed with depression, a delayed manifestation of Parkinson's, a reduced risk of developing vascular dementia -- but not Alzheimer's. These connections were discovered by researchers when they compared 200,000 people who had participated in a long-distance cross-country ski race ...

Inflammatory processes drive progression of Alzheimer's and other brain diseases
November 20, 2019
Inflammation drives the progression of neurodegenerative brain diseases and plays a major role in the accumulation of tau proteins within neurons. An international research team led by the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the University of Bonn comes to this conclusion in t...
