Senior Man  Worried Son Could Low Cholesterol Levels be a Factor in Alzheimers Disease?

Excerpts:

Suck the water out of brain tissue and what you’re left with is mainly fat. The brain is also very high in cholesterol. This substance actually plays a key role in the normal functioning of the brain. Just these very facts alone might cause us to be wary about driving cholesterol to ever-lower levels as is the vogue. Is it possible that in doing so we jeopardise the brain’s functioning?

It is certainly true that some people who take statins report negative effects on their brain function. Problems with memory and concentration are not uncommon. It’s not assured, of course, that the problems these people experience are a direct consequence of lowered cholesterol levels in the body. However, the possibility still exists. Some supportive evidence for this notion comes in the form of a study, in which researchers compared cholesterol levels in people at various stages of Alzheimer’s disease (the most common form of dementia) with those in individuals not suffering from the condition [1]. What they found, in essence, is that those with Alzheimer’s disease had significantly lower levels of total cholesterol as well as low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. Also, those with late stage Alzheimer’s disease had lower cholesterol levels compared with those with less advanced forms of the disease.

Children Raised on Small Dairy Farms Develop 90% Fewer Allergies

A new study published in Sweden shows that children who live on small dairy farms run one-tenth the risk of developing allergies as other children. This study confirms the same results observed among small Amish dairy farms last year, where the drinking of farm-fresh raw milk was shown to be a cure for many allergies. The authors of the study suspect that the development of a healthy gut flora, as a result from living on the farm and being exposed to many different types of bacteria, is a major factor in developing immunity to allergies.
