Telomere length affected by diet

Longer telomeres linked to eating less fat, more fruit and vegetables.

Telomeres are bits of DNA at the ends of chromosomes that shorten with cellular aging. Telomere length has been suggested as a marker for biological aging, chronic disease risk and premature mortality.

Turmeric (Curcumin) and MS

The naturopathic doctor at my clinic is always suggesting that MS patients try to add more turmeric into their diet to help with inflammation. I did some more research and found a study done at Vanderbilt University's Neurology Department did on the subject. I wrote it up here, if anyone is interested: http://bumpymsadventures.blogspot.com/2012/12/spice-spotlight-turmeric.html

Here is also a healthy grilled chicken recipe using turmeric: http://bumpymsadventures.blogspot.com/2012/12/tasty-tandoori-chicken.html

Hope this is helpful to somebody and Happy New Year!

Diet Treats Toxic MS

I believe Dr. Zamboni has discovered the problem – venous blood reflux or CCSVI – but not the sole solution. Detoxification and nutritional therapy coupled with circulation therapies and/or skeletal adjustments may suffice to cure or control MS without taking the risk of angioplasty.
I've concluded there are 5 basic MS types, all of which leading to a reflux of venous blood into the Central Nervous System.
1) CONGENITAL vein malformations. 2) DEVELOPMENTAL vein malformations. ...

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?

Ive been following the Wahls diet 100% strictly for 7.5 months now, and i am so much worse,
my E.D.S.S has gone from 5.5 to 6.5 - 7.

Bare in mind, for the last 4.5 years i have been taking 2mg LDN (low dose naltrexone) which has kept me in remission - the SPMS stopped progressing, and while i didnt improve, my symptoms remained the same with no deterioration,

I started the diet in April ...

Insulin resistance in late middle-aged patients affected risk for Alzheimer’s
Willette AA. Diabetes Care. 2012;doi:10.2337/dc12-0922.

Recent data suggest that insulin resistance among late middle-aged patients is associated with progressive atrophy in regions of the brain affected by early Alzheimer’s disease. Additionally, insulin resistance in this patient population may negatively affect gray matter volume in the medial temporal lobe.

“Most studies to date ...

Lectins

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... 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. I'm interested what other foods we should avoid? And the other problem is that I just love peanuts and tomatoes :(. I read that cashew nuts ...
