Artificial butter flavoring exacerbates Alzheimer's

The Butter Flavorant, Diacetyl, Exacerbates β-Amyloid Cytotoxicity
Chem. Res. Toxicol., 2012, 25 (10), pp 2083–2091

    Diacetyl (DA) , a ubiquitous butter-flavoring agent, was found to influence several aspects of amyloid-β (Aβ) aggregation—one of the two primary pathologies associated with Alzheimer's disease. Thioflavin T fluorescence and circular dichroism spectroscopic measurements revealed that DA accelerates Aβ1–42 aggregation into soluble and ultimately insoluble β-pleated sheet structures. DA was found to covalently bind to Arg5 of ...

Why is the Wahls diet making me much worse, is it possible?

Lectins ... 4wLGh4DeAw
Watched this video. I know it is about Paleo and there is topic for that, but I'm more interested in lectins. They mention not to eat tomatoes and peanuts in the video.

Dietary fat, not glucose, is the preferred fuel

Conventional advice has focused on low-fat diets for weight loss and heart disease prevention, but again and again, studies demonstrate ...

Hemp oil

Was wondering if anyone tried it? It is high in omega 3's. Has the GLA.. it really looks a lot like what we need. I am not talking about the stuff made from weed. I am talking about what comes from the vitamin store.
