Red meat and l-carnitine

This news about carnitine, TMAO (produced by gut bacteria that metabolize l-carnitine), and thickening of the arteries is everywhere today. Apparently, it is not the saturated fat which is the villain in red meat. Many diets for MS limit the amount of red meat – could this finding be the real mechanism at work? Taking the supplement may not be a good idea either, according to the researcher Dr. Stanley press Hazen.

Vitamins and Amino Acids

There is so much misinformation or contridicting information out there it really is hard to know what is the right thing to do. I do know that MS affects people differently so some people may or may not benefit from certain recommendations.

Is it advantageous to take a multi vitamin and an amino acid? My mate feels that it is a waste of money and that I am just "pissing it all out". I have ...

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.

Leukocyte telomere length and its relation to food and nutrient intake in an elderly population

    Shorter leukocyte telomere length (LTL) is associated with ...

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:

Here is also a healthy grilled chicken recipe using turmeric:

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 ...
