Are Alzheimer's and diabetes the same disease?

Thursday, November 28, 2013

"Feeding animals a diet designed to give them type 2 diabetes leaves their brains riddled with insoluble plaques of a protein called beta-amyloid – one of the calling cards of Alzheimer's. We also know that insulin plays a key role in memory. Taken together, the findings suggest that Alzheimer's might be caused by a type of brain diabetes."

    I've been reading up on cancer, CVD, Diabetes and Alz, In my non-expert opinion, I think they are all related to inflammation. The manifestation is on the weakest link of the body. Some people get cancer, some get heart disease, depending on the weakest system.

    I have no problem believing this at all.

    The solution: GREEN JUICING! LOL That and a diet of raw organic fruits, greens, and veggies.
