  1. Re: What Can You Do To Avoid Alzheimer's Disease?

    Mercola had an article on sleep today, which I trashed after skimming. I will dig it up and see if it contains anything pertinent about amyloid plaque.

    Edit/update: he had a passing reference to...

    Re: Is It Possible To Eat Too Much Fruit?

    Another reason why I grow my own apples, pears, plums, raspberries, rhubarb. I lost 2 peach trees, a Contender and a Madison, in the fall of 2017 when a brief warm spell at the end of the season...

    Boss sets the rules

    The manager of a large office noticed a new man one day and told him to come into his office.
    "What is your name?" the manager asked.
    "John," the new guy replied.
    The manager scowled, "Look,...

    Re: Is It Possible To Eat Too Much Fruit?

    Excellent point. Besides which, I'd contest that theory. The structure of our jaws and teeth speaks to a period in human evolution when we ate a great many tough roots and gristly meats. Over time...
  6. Re: What Can You Do To Avoid Alzheimer's Disease?

    So if a mere 1% can be attributed to genetics, that leaves a lot of explaining to do. Given that we live in an increasingly polluted world (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_pollution_in_Delhi, or...
  7. Re: China Approves World's First New Alzheimer's Drug

    I do. My body insists on it. If for some reason I don't get all 7 hours overnight, I'll fall asleep midafternoon, and if I happen to be driving, I'll pull over at the first convenient place to stop...
  8. Re: CDC: Antibiotic resistance causes 1 death every 15 minutes in US

    May I add another leg to make yours a 2-legged theory? Because I think it's plausible that the most recent Blogspot entry, "Partnering for a path to digital identity," is a worldwide, multi-corporate...
  9. Re: China Approves World's First New Alzheimer's Drug

    Wouldn't it be refreshing to see pharmaceutical companies searching for a cause rather than a treatment for a specific condition? We have yet to know how to prevent Alzheimer's, yet companies are...

  12. Re: Copper Hospital Beds Kill Bacteria, Save Lives

    Thanks for the info. Now, what are "chimney blocks"? Cement? Something else? Both of ours are fieldstone, so I have to ask. As for wood & creosote, both of our chimneys are indoors and I have to tell...

  14. Re: Copper Hospital Beds Kill Bacteria, Save Lives

    Grulla, you built a "masonry chimney." I'm impressed! We built two, using Scott and Helen Nearing's method, in our passive solar home. I'm curious about two things: what "masonry" materials did you...

    Re: The Activity That's Bad For Your Heart

    Oh, great. I don't do sports, and given this chronic hip pain, I can't even do brisk walks any more. Thus my "exercise" (aside from occasional stair climbing) consists of heavy lifting: 50-lb. bags...

    Thank you for thinking of that, Pattypans. I have used the magnesium crystals in the past but it's much more convenient to take tablets, which I do every morning. I know most of us are deficient in...

    The strain is a part of the Group M version of HIV-1, the same family of...
  23. Re: How A High Salt Diet May Lead To Cognitive Decline

    Good point. I don't consume processed, salty foods at all but I do have to eat about half a banana daily for enough potassium to avoid leg cramps at night.

    Maurya, I have what's called a Medicare Advantage Plan, a health insurance policy that is somehow affiliated with Medicare (I really don't understand how). When I was sent to the ER a couple of...
