People with high levels of omega-3 DHA in their blood have a 49% lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease – Neuroscience News

Summary: People with high levels of omega-3 DHA in their blood are 49% less likely to develop dementia than those with lower levels. Researchers say adding supplemental omega-3 DHA to the diet, especially in people with the Apoe4 gene associated with Alzheimer’s disease, may slow the development and progression of dementia.

Alzheimer’s disease causes cells to overheat and ‘fry like eggs’ – Neuroscience News

Summary: The heat produced by the aggregation of beta amyloid can cause other healthy beta amyloid to clump together, causing more and more aggregates to form. However, with the addition of a new drug compound, amyloid-beta aggregation can be arrested and cell temperature lowered. Source: University of Cambridge Researchers have shown that the aggregation of …
