Experts found that men can inherit heart disease from their father after they have tracked the condition to the Y chromosome that dads pass to sons

Experts found that men can inherit heart disease from their father after they have tracked the condition to the Y chromosome that dads pass to sons. By studying the DNA of over 3,000 men, scientists found a particular version of the sex chromosome increases the risk of coronary artery disease by 50%. The risk it confers is in addition to other heart risk factors like cholesterol, The Lancet repor...

Inhaling a cloud of insulin two times per day appears to slow symptoms of memory loss in people with early signs of Alzheimer's disease

Early-onset dementia: symptoms and the importance of early diagnosis.   A new study has found that inhaling a concentrated cloud of insulin through the nose two times per day appears to slow — and in some cases reverse — symptoms of memory loss in people with early signs of Alzheimer’s disease. The study was run by researchers from the Veterans Administration’s Puget Sound Health Care...

Skin and Morgellons disease

There is no scientific evidence that Morgellons disease is an infectious illness, a study published this week in the journal PLoS One has shown. The half-million-dollar study performed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was started because of the increasing reports of the symptoms and the intense public interest. “We saw a growing number of people complaining about these unus...

A new study has revealed that some of the earliest signs of Alzheimer’s disease have been found in the brain, more than two decades before the first symptoms usually appear. Treating the disease early is thought to be vital in order to prevent damage to memory and thinking. A study, published in the Lancet Neurology, found differences in the brains of people destined to develop an early for...

Eating too much red meat could increase the risk of Alzheimer's

0 63

According to a recent research, eating too much red meat could trigger Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists found that a build-up of iron – abundant in red meat – could cause oxidant damage, to which the brain is particularly vulnerable. Researchers say this could in turn increase the risk of Alzheimer’s. Prof. George Bartzokis of UCLA said that more studies have suggested the...

Human brain cells that are an exact replica of genetically caused Parkinson’s disease have been successfully created in the lab by US scientists. The breakthrough means the scientists can now see exactly how mutations in the parkin gene cause the disease in an estimated one in 10 patients with Parkinson’s. And it offers a realistic model to test new treatments on – a hurdle that...
