If you bled when you brushed your teeth this morning, you might want to get that seen to. We may finally have found the long-elusive cause of Alzheimer’s disease: Porphyromonas gingivalis, the key bacteria in chronic gum disease.

https://www.newscientist.com/article/21 ... o-stop-it/

Here's a really fascinating article on the latest research related to Alzheimer's disease. The ameloid and tau proteins that form in the brain and are associated with the disease may represent our bodies' adaptation to fight bacteria attacking brain tissue. In other words, they are not the cause, but the symptom, of the disease...which is totally different than what I learned in graduate school just a few years back.

If you have a history of dementia in your family (~70 percent of dementia is Alzheimer's-related) or are just interested in some popular science, it's pretty cool.

Interesting. My dad is in the early stages of dementia.

I've been interested in the role sleep, or a lack thereof, plays in the development of dementia.

Pretty cool. Dementia is a scary thing. The lack of sleep on my career has always made me worry. I’m good on the gym disease though. Lol. Thanks Fats.

FYI, there is some research to suggest that creatine may help prevent or reverse early dementia.

I'm guessing just regular creatine monohydrate? I remember hearing/reading something about the neuroprotective benefits of creatine like 13 years ago when I was in college, and then promptly forgetting about it.

Ironic.

Thanks, Fats. He's survived liver cancer, lung cancer, and is living with prostate cancer but never slowed down til his memory began to fade.

He's probably the toughest guy I know.

Sounds like he is a tough man.

Purely by happenstance my wife was walking home from grocery shopping yesterday and saw our good friend’s mom in a park on the way. She stopped to say hi, but the mom—who we’ve known for decades—couldn’t recognize her. She said it was pretty bizarre and chilling.
