Hopeful Alzheimer's News

We last blogged on Alzheimer's treatments about a year or so ago, with this unlikely news:

"Maple syrup isn't just delicious, it could also cure Alzheimer's disease"

Blueberries made an appearance, too.

Fast forward to now, and we learn about promising research being done in Israel :

"A protein dubbed SIRT6 is almost completely absent in Alzheimer’s disease patients and this deficiency likely contributes to its onset"

Using mouse as human stand-ins, researchers are trying to lock this connection down.


RELATED: From the folks at PowerLine blog, we learn that:

"The brain scans showed the somms had developed thicker and more robust areas of the brain that deal with olfactory and memory response. In turn, the researchers concluded that studying wine might help lower the risk of Alzheimer’s disease."

It's science!
