Could Low Cholesterol Levels be a Factor in Alzheimer’s Disease?

for The Cholesterol Truth

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.

Study: Oil Pulling and Gum Massage Inhibits Gingivitis and Dental Plaque

While conventional dentistry is pouring chemicals into our mouths, ancient Ayurveda has been preventing gingivitis and periodontal disease with natural oils for thousands of years.

Ayurveda has been recommending oil pulling and gum massage for thousands of years to help prevent gum disease and plaque build up. Yet the chemical industry is convinced their antibacterial mouthwashes and rinses are the answer. The heck with ‘superstitious’ ancient therapies – they say.

However, modern research is now proving the oldest continuous medicine was not wrong about oil pulling or gum massage.

The U.S. fertility rates are at all-time record lows. Are we watching the leading edge of a slowly moving tidal wave of infertility? I wasn’t sure what is really happening with human fertility until I took a hard look at the data and the science. I now believe that there is strong reason to be concerned about the emerging trend of infertility. What is causing the current generation of child-bearing aged adults to become infertile?

How the FDA Deceives You About Mercury Amalgams

57 Percent of Americans Do Not Know Amalgam Contains Mercury!

Why exactly is the FDA so opposed to informing the public about the true nature of amalgam? The answer is simple: because the agency has been penetrated through the revolving door that’s so common in other industries. Just like Monsanto has penetrated the federal government’s regulatory agencies, amalgam profit centers have penetrated and effectively lobbied the FDA to remain complacent on this issue.

Ebola: WHO Turns To Experimental Drugs, But Not Proven Natural Remedies

Ebola: WHO Turns To Experimental Drugs, But Not Proven Natural Remedies

As the world starts looking to invest millions of dollars for ebola drugs, the Catch-22 of drug economics (no one will spend the exorbitant sums needed to run clinical trials if the product can’t be patented and turned into a huge money-maker) practically ensures that natural treatments will be ignored. But could some of our oldest natural antivirals be used at least to inhibit the transfer of the virus—or even cure it?

Silver has also showed great promise as an antiviral, in both attacking the virus and in inhibiting transmission. So far, silver has been tested on HIV and herpes. Silver has also been used to clear HPV warts; inhibit the replication of the hepatitis B virus; kill the H1N1 virus; fight ocular infection; and kill the tacaribe virus, which also causes hemorrhagic fever, as well as the bacteriophage viral strain. Since disinfecting contaminated environments is the most effective method of halting Ebola’s spread, silver could be a most potent weapon in the battle. But we don’t see the WHO getting behind anything natural, whether effective or not.
