Research shows Alzheimer’s Disease is really just ‘type-3’ diabetes

Source of article taken from:  http://www.naturalnews.com/036708_Alzheimers_type-3_diabetes_brain_disease.html Emerging research on the widespread degenerative brain disease known as Alzheimer's suggests that this prevalent form of dementia is actually a type of diabetes. Published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, a recent study out of Rhode Island Hospital (RIH) confirms that Alzheimer's is marked by brain insulin resistance and corresponding inflammation, a condition that some researchers are now referring to as type-3 diabetes. Dr. Suzanne de la Monte from RIH is the one responsible for making this fascinating connection, having found in her research that diabetes is closely associated with several key neuronal factors implicated in dementia. It turns out that Alzheimer's progresses as a result of the brain developing resistance to insulin, which in turn prevents proper lipid (fat) metabolism. Over time,…

An important nutrient not to be missed– Selenium

You may have heard of Selenium. This is a naturally occurring trace mineral  found in the soil and is absorbed into plant life.  When combined with proteins in the body, Selenium becomes a powerful antioxidant. There are no UK RDA set for selenium. The daily recommend nutrient intake is 75 µg/d for men and 65 µg/ d for women. In my expert opinion I believe it is perfectly safe to have an intake of 100ug to 200ug, especially since most most individuals are likely to be deficient in this trace mineral.   Recent surveys indicate that the average selenium intake may be as low as 30–40 µg/d (1). Vegetarians and the elderly particularly are at a higher risk of selenium deficiency. Many countries including the UK have soils that are very low in selenium,…
