Re: Alzheimers Disease Completely Reversed by Removing One Enzyme

One of the common poisons in our diet that contributes to enzyme dysfunction and plaque is fluoride, even in drinking water. It also causes plaques in hearts and increases absorbtion of lead and aluminum into brain tissue. Also increases BACE1 as do many pesticides. 

 

Eat organic as much as you can and avoid fluoride in any form. 

 

2015 … “fluoride and aluminium intake induces the progression of cell death which inhibit AChE activities and trigger the release of lysosomal and cell cycle proteins."

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0928468015000206

 

2014 ... 

“Fluoride at 1 or 10 ppm in drinking water produced significant (P \ 0.05) inhibition of AChE activity in a dose dependant manner and inhibition was maximum in brain (26.39 %) and least in heart (10.23 %)… co-exposure of fluoride and chlor- pyrifos produces more pronounced inhibition of AChE than the individual exposure of either toxicant.”

@MarkFreedom  Interesting. Thanks for sharing!

 

OK: don't overdo it on protein intake. On it. Smiley Happy

 

For anyone wanting a quick overview, here's a snippet from the Newsweek article:

 

"An experimental treatment completely reversed Alzheimer’s disease in mice by reducing the levels of a single enzyme in the animals' brains. The results further bolster the theory that amyloid plaques are at the root of this mysterious brain disease, and that addressing these plaques could lead to an eventual cure for Alzheimer's.

 

The study, published February 14 in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, found that slowly reducing levels of the enzyme BACE1 in mice as they aged either prevented or reversed the formation of amyloid plaques in the brain, a hallmark sign of Alzheimer’s disease.

Amyloid plaques, formed when bits of protein clump together in the brain, are found in high amounts in Alzheimer’s patients. BACE1 is a protein that naturally forms in the brain and helps produce beta-amyloid peptide, a protein also involved with brain plaque formation."
