Protect against Alzheimer's disease with Omega-3 fatty acids.

Protect against Alzheimer's disease with Omega-3 fatty acids.

Alzheimer's disease is commonly known as an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and eventually the ability to carry out the simplest tasks (Alzheimer's Society).  Recent estimates suggest that Alzheimer's is the third leading cause of death for older people in the United States, trailing behind heart disease and cancer.  Billions of dollars are spent each year in search of a cure, however the mainstream system seems to be missing the target completely as they have neglected the crucial piece of the puzzle – the root cause.  This devastating disease is due to cell death...

Scared Stupid

When you think of diabetes, you probably associate it with your body’s resistance to insulin signals, but guess what, in an Alzheimer's brain, insulin is not too effective either, in fact, brain cells are practically starving to death!

Your mental tasks that require a degree of coordination (like driving) falls off rapidly when you sleep less than 5 hours.  While 7 hours of sleep is considered adequate, that target is more a reflection of society than science.  Our parents most likely got between 8 and 9 hours, routinely.  Sleep deprivation has been linked to chronic depression, anxiety, decreased fertility in men and, of course, increased accidents, not to mention high risk behavior when lack of sleep is coupled...

Mitochondria – The High Price of Power

Without mitochondria, you would be a slow moving, geographically localized (like within a 10 foot radius) creature, so be grateful for your mitochondria, but take good care of them.  There’s a price to pay for all this power and being at the top of the food chain.  Mitochondria can get sick and they can get old, and oxygen is a dangerous friend by nature, since it always generates free radicals. As a result, mitochondria can fail to provide adequate energy, as they are subject to the everyday wear and tear of life.  What are the usual suspects?  The wrong diet,...
