How did a son help his institutionalized mother, who didn’t remember how and accused staff of kidnapping her? Could his approach be the key to saving millions from this ravaging disease?




With the explosion of Alzheimer’s Disease and cognitive decline (memory impairment), are you concerned about yours? Here’s a new study that indicates eating more of a certain group of veggies can protect your memory.



When we think of preventing and/or reducing one’s risk of developing Alzheimer’s, exercise, diabetes, depression, diet, and family genetics are the normal factors that come to mind. Could something as seemingly simple as prayer affect one’s risk of developing this dreaded disease?





New research determined that Curcumin, the yellow pigment of turmeric (Curcuma longa), may provide significant benefit in preventing telomere shortening and may actually promote elongation of telomeres.

Although telomeres shorten with each cell division, dividing cells express telomerase, a protein complex that synthesizes and elongates telomeres. Researchers sought to determine if Curcumin could increase telomerase expression and thereby help preserve telomere length. To test their hypothesis, they chose to look at its effects on telomerase expression in brain cells exposed to beta-amyloid, a primary source of oxidative damage and brain cell death linked to Alzheimer’s.
