Re: Do vaccines prevent AD and Parkinsons?

Thanks for sharing your experience, Quantifier. The CDC's guidelines promise a challenge for US residents who want BCG: BCG is not generally recommended for use in the United States because of the low risk of infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the variable effectiveness of the vaccine agains...

Re: Do vaccines prevent AD and Parkinsons?

I completed my shingles vaccination and began annual flu shots in 2021 as a result of this evidence. I had forgotten about the BCG evidence, which seems like the most compelling of all. Has anyone sought the BCG vaccine as a prophylactic measure against neuro degenerative disease? Was it difficult t...

Re: Fructose leads to Alzheimer’s? (new hypothesis and wiki)

Thanks for the eye-opening new wiki article, Theresa. Years ago when I was interested in ketogenesis, I learned the hard way (muscle cramps!) about the importance of getting enough salt.

What Causes Alzheimer's? (Quanta Magazine)

Much of this article details the checkered history of the amyloid hypothesis and is not news to many of us here. If you find yourself skimming, I recommend searching within the article for "lysosome". Overall, the article is typical of those found in Quanta - high-quality deep science cont...

(The workaround if that was correct is an enteric delivery.) That has been firmly debunked by a number of articles. Perhaps you could cite a few of the a...

Re: My version of a Ketogenic Diet

I eat more carbs than I did in 2014. I continue to restrict my daily feeding window to eight hours and avoid processed food. Lipids have been pretty steady since 2013 with some variability but no obvious trend. Here are some ranges along with the most recent in mg/dL: Metric Low-High 9/20/21 Cholest...

Re: My version of a Ketogenic Diet

Hi MarcR, I know this is a very, very old post but was curious how you determined the amounts of Mag. and Pot. to supplement? And, what variations of these minerals you used? like Mg Citrate, Mg Taurate, etc. Thanks I don't recall specifically. The magnesium dosage is what you'll see on supplement ...
