Coffee 'may reverse Alzheimer's' - BBC News Health - July 5, 2009.
"Drinking five cups of coffee a day could reverse memory problems seen in Alzheimer's disease, US scientists say.
The Florida research, carried out on mice, also suggested caffeine hampered the production of the protein plaques which are the hallmark of the disease.
Previous research has also suggested a protective effect from caffeine."
A high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet improves Alzheimer's disease in mice.
Study may also have implications for dieters - Public release date: 16-Oct-2005
Mice with the mouse model of Alzheimer's disease show improvements in their condition when treated with a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet. A report published today in the peer-reviewed, open access journal Nutrition and Metabolism, showed that a brain protein, amyloid-beta, which is an indicator of Alzheimer's disease, is reduced in mice on the so-called ketogenic diet.
The report, by Samuel Henderson, from Accera, Inc, Colorado and colleagues from Belgium runs counter to previous studies suggesting a negative effect of fat on Alzheimer's disease.
"This work supports the premise that key aspects of Alzheimer's disease can be altered by changes in metabolism. It also highlights the interaction of dietary components and how such components influence the metabolic state", write the authors.
The authors believe that insulin and the related hormone, insulin-related growth factor-1 (IGF-1), are the key players. "Insulin is often considered a storage hormone, since it promotes deposition of fat but insulin may also work to encourage amyloid-beta production."
Richard Feinman, editor of the journal, explains the relation between nutrients: "You might say that fat is the bomb, and insulin (from carbohydrate) is the fuse. Most studies of the deleterious effects of fat have been done in the presence of high carbohydrate. If carbs are high, dietary fat is not oxidized and is instead stored as body fat." When carbohydrates are very low and fat is high, compounds called ketone bodies are generated (ketosis) and these compounds may play a role in the observed reduction in amyloid-beta. In association with a group from University of Washington led by Dr. Suzanne Craft, Henderson has previously shown cognitive improvement in patients with mild AD who were given a diet that raises ketone bodies.
In an accompanying editorial, Feinman says, "Although it is too early to tell how the results will fit into the treatment of AD, the implication for diet in general is also important." The primacy of insulin as a control element is the basis of popular weight-loss diets based on carbohydrate restriction. Such regimens allow dieters to regulate fat and calorie intake by appetite alone as long as carbohydrate intake remains minimal. Feinman points out, "Henderson's effort is one of several recent studies that point the way to understanding metabolism beyond the issues surrounding simple fat reduction."~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Most Likely Cause of Alzheimer's Disease
The fact that Alzheimer's disease (or dementia) is epidemic and expected to get much worse is no surprise. Carbohydrates are the primary cause of Alzheimer's Disease. The USDA Food Guide Pyramid contains an outrageously high percentage of carbohydrates, and more and more people are attempting to follow the guidelines. The most damaging foods are fruit, whole grains, and sugar. Carbohydrates cause an increase in the level of blood insulin which is a very powerful anabolic hormone. The function of insulin is to force glucose into cells for energy, convert excess glucose to fatty acids, and to deposit those fats in the body for storage. Insulin has many negative and very unhealthy side effects. Insulin also forces glycated low-density lipoproteins (LDL), glycated hemoglobin, glycated protein, and oxidized polyunsaturated omega-6 vegetable fatty acids into the wall of the arteries, causing heart disease and other artery diseases. Hyperinsulinemia (high blood insulin level) and hyperglycemia (high blood glucose level) creates glycated protein molecules that are deposited outside and around nerve cells, thereby causing Alzheimer's disease. Glycation occurs when polysaccharide molecule chains (complex carbohydrates also called glycans) are attached to another molecule such as LDL, protein, or hemoglobin. Carbohydrates cause Alzheimer's disease, not eating meat or animal fats. Eating the following foods are the cause Alzheimer's disease.
Fruit and fruit juices.
Whole grains and refined grains.
High fructose corn syrup.
Sugar, glucose, fructose, and honey.
Vegetable, seed, and nut omega-6 polyunsaturated fats and oils.
Hydrogenated vegetable, seed, and nut oils.
Starches like potatoes and yams.
Cows' Milk, rice milk, soy milk, and yogurt.
Exercise does not prevent Alzheimer's disease.
We see people with heart disease and diabetes suffering from Alzheimer's disease as well because all of these diseases have the same root cause. The excess consumption of carbohydrates leads to hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinemia that plug arteries and damage brain tissues with glycated molecules.
People with diabetes have two times the risk of also suffering from Alzheimer's dementia of the brain than do non diabetics. Those diabetics who are insulin dependent have a fourfold risk of developing Alzheimer's dementia. This is not a small difference. It is a 500% increase. This is a massive increase in the incidence of Alzheimer's in those diabetics who are insulin dependent. The higher risk is caused by the tendency of the insulin-dependent Type 1 diabetic to use insulin as a license to eat a high-carbohydrate diet. The diabetic is at a high risk for Alzheimer's disease because the American Diabetic Association, and most likely the doctor, recommends the low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet. The resultant hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinemia promote glycation of the neurons of the brain. The low-fat, low-cholesterol diet causes Alzheimer's disease because it is a high-carbohydrate diet. The reason more people don't die from Alzheimer's disease is because 65% of them die from heart disease, and 25% die from cancer first. Diabetics have a life span that is eight years shorter than the non diabetic.

Vegetables do not prevent Alzheimer's disease. Don't believe the major media hype that a certain vegetable "may prevent Alzheimer's disease." The studies and announcements are paid advertisements funded at some point in the chain by the vegetable growers' associations. Alzheimer's disease has increased in the same proportion as adherence to the USDA Food Guide Pyramid. Alzheimer's disease is caused by the low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet of whole grains, fruit, legumes, and high-starch vegetables like potatoes, as recommended by the USDA Food Guide Pyramid.
The Latest Alzheimer's Disease News
Alzheimer's drug 'halts' decline - BBC News - July 29, 2008.
"UK scientists have developed a drug which may halt the progression of Alzheimer's disease. Trials of the drug, known as rember, in 321 patients showed an 81% difference in rate of mental decline compared with those not taking the treatment. The Aberdeen University researchers said the drug targeted the build-up of a specific protein in the brain. Alzheimer's experts were optimistic about the results, but said larger trials were now needed. "
Statins 'may cut dementia risk' - BBC News - July 29, 2008.
"Scientists have found further evidence that taking commonly used cholesterol-lowering statins may protect against dementia and memory loss. The study, published in Neurology, found that statins - normally taken to reduce heart disease risk - may cut the risk of dementia by half."
Tofu 'may raise risk of dementia' - BBC News - July 5, 2008.
"Eating high levels of some soy products - including tofu - may raise the risk of memory loss, research suggests."
Dementia sufferers set to double - BBC News - February 27, 2007.
"Dementia costs Scotland £1.4bn and the number of people suffering from the condition will almost double in the next 25 years, experts have warned."
Juices 'may cut Alzheimer's risk' - August 31, 2006.
"Drinking fruit and vegetable juices frequently may significantly cut the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, a study suggests."
"Clive Ballard, director of research at the Alzheimer's Society, said fruit and vegetables might also help cut the risk by helping to lower blood pressure, and keep the blood vessels in good order."
Fruit and fruit juice cause many serious diseases. Don't believe the report above. This study is a great example of research that cannot be trusted. It is a scientific fact that fructose sugar in fruit causes insulin resistance that increases the risk of Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, and diabetes. See the following truthful study that proves fructose as found in abundance in fruit and fruit juice is one of the root causes for metabolic syndrome, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and Alzheimer's disease.
Hypothesis: fructose-induced hyperuricemia as a causal mechanism for the epidemic of the metabolic syndrome.

Alzheimer's Disease or Dementia Cases 'Are Set To Soar' - December 16, 2005.
"The number of cases of dementia world-wide is likely to double every 20 years, say researchers. A report for Alzheimer's Disease International, published in The Lancet, found a new case of dementia arising every seven seconds. It estimated 24.3 million people currently have dementia, with 4.6 million new cases being diagnosed each year as the population ages. By 2040 the number is predicted to have risen to 81.1 million. The report said most people living with dementia are in the developing world, with five million in China alone. This compares with 4.8 million in Western Europe and 3.4 million in North America."

Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes
This is a must-read book. Gary Taubes is an award-winning scientist who has specialized in exposing misleading, incorrect, or fraudulent science. His seven-year research in every science connected with the impact of nutrition on health shows us that almost everything we believe about the nature of a healthy diet is wrong. For decades we have been taught that fat is bad for us, carbohydrates are better, and that the key to a healthy weight is eating less and exercising more. Yet with more and more people acting on the advice, we have seen unprecedented epidemics of obesity and diabetes.
Taubes argues persuasively that the problem lies in refined carbohydrates (white flour, sugar, easily digested starches) via their dramatic effect on insulin -- the hormone that regulates fat accumulation -- and that the key to good health is the kind of calories we take in, not the number. There are good and bad calories. Taubes traces how the common assumption that carbohydrates are fattening was abandoned in the 1960s when fat and cholesterol were blamed for heart disease and then -- wrongly -- were seen as the causes of a host of other maladies, including cancer. He shows us how these unproven hypotheses were emphatically embraced by authorities in nutrition, public health, and clinical medicine in spite of how well-conceived clinical trials have consistently refuted them. He also documents the dietary trials of carbohydrate restriction which consistently show that the fewer carbohydrates we consume the leaner we will be.
With precise references to the most significant existing clinical studies, he convinces us that there is no compelling scientific evidence demonstrating that saturated fat and cholesterol cause heart disease; that salt causes high blood pressure; and that fiber is a necessary part of a healthy diet. Based on the evidence that does exist, he leads us to conclude that the only healthy way to lose weight and remain lean is to eat fewer carbohydrates or to change the type of carbohydrates we do eat and, for some of us, perhaps to eat virtually none at all.

Life Without Bread: How a Low-Carbohydrate Diet Can Save Your Life
Life Without Bread is an important addition to the growing body of literature on the benefits and importance of low-carb diet. Written by Christian Allan, Ph.D., and Wolfgang Lutz, M.D., the book is based on Dr. Lutz's experience using carbohydrate restricted diets with thousands of patients for more than 40 years. It is based on extensive research in the medical and scientific literature and provides ample references. The book presents a unified theory of how high (and even moderate) levels of dietary carbohydrate cause or exacerbate various health problems and how carbohydrate restriction can help people to recover from those problems.
The book Life Without Bread by Christian Allan, Ph.D. and Wolfgang Lutz, M.D. has a chapter on gastrointestinal diseases. Don't be mislead by the title to believe the cure is the simple elimination of bread. Mr. Lutz's older book is out of print but has essentially the same information. It may even contain more detail than his new book above. Fortunately, Chapter VII: Gastro-Intestinal Tract of the older book can be read online.
