    Default Can this inexpensive nutrient help you avoid Alzheimer's?

    Frank Shallenberger, MD

    With rates of Alzheimer's disease on the rise, researchers are constantly seeking new insight into what causes this disease, how to prevent it, and how to possibly reverse it. According to the Alzheimer's Association, this year, 5.1 million Americans are struggling with dementia, and by 2025, this number is expected to increase by 40% to 7.1 million. At least, that is, unless researchers find a way to slow or stop its progress.
    Fortunately, researchers are releasing new information regularly about preventative steps you can take to lower your risk of dementia. In fact, they just published one such study in July. In it, researchers found an interesting link between cognitive function and blood serum levels of vitamin D3 in older adults.

    Vitamin D supps are cheap, sun is free. As for dementia, see my recent post on aluminum in Vaccines forum...pretty scary.

    LabDoc, do a site search on aluminum. The post I referred to above, in the Vaccines forum, is frightening. I think you will have spell it the U.S. way, as I did here.

    Aluminum and the interior of the human body should never meet. Same goes for fluoride. I believe both contribute to memory problems. I would add that vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin, not cyanocobalamin) has been shown to help ward off dementia. Most Americans are deficient in this critical vitamin. I have read that magnesium is also helpful (another nutrient that most Americans are deficient in).

    StephenX, welcome back and happy to see that you recovered your password. Hope to see more of you!

    You offer good advice. I periodically reinforce my intake of both B-12 and magnesium. I also grow and consume a lot of greens (beet greens, turnip greens, swiss chard, NZ spinach, collards, kale, even wild ones like dandelion greens and lambs' quarters in season. The home-grown ones are canned or frozen for year-round availability.

    I have an article about aluminum and transferrin I'll try to link later. Aluminum attaches to transferrin and was considered the way it's detoxed out of the body, but the article I have suggests transferrin could be transporting aluminum into the body's cells, and thus be the mechanism of aluminum damage. Also transferrin is supposed to attach to iron, so it seems reasonable that there could be consequences of having aluminum compete for it.
