Navage Nasal Care

I purchased a Navage Nasal Care unit, and absolutely love it. Much more pleasant than the Neti Pot. However I am wondering if there is any dangers of bacteria or disrupting the nasal cavity biosphere that might increase the risk of alzheimers? Love to get some opinions on this. https://www.amazon.co...

Statins and Dementia studies

I am not sure if this has been brought up before but I have seen a few studies that point to statins being protective against dementia.

And leaky BBB tends to be a factor for dementia.

Rat studies vs Humans

I have a question that I wonder if someone can help me with? I was surprised to learn that less than 50% of the drugs that work on mice eventually translate to actually working in humans. Since most drugs get tested on mice first, what happens to all the drugs that start out not working in mice but ...

Looking for some help in helping understand polygenic score?

Trying to get a handle on how to determine the risk of a disease based on ones polygenic score.

If I am in the 99% percentile for a particular disease with a 1.6 polygenic score and the odds of the disease is 2% in general population. Can I determine my odds of getting the disease?
