New Alzheimer’s treatment fully restores memory function!
Of the mice that received the treatment, 75 percent got their memory function back. 
Australian researchers have come up with a non-invasive ultrasound technology that clears the brain of neurotoxic amyloid plaques - structures that are responsible for memory loss and a decline in cognitive function in Alzheimer’s patients. 

If a person has Alzheimer’s disease, it’s usually the result of a build-up of two types of lesions - amyloid plaques, and neurofibrillary tangles. Amyloid plaques...  Read More

Leukemia Lymphoma, Myeloma - what you need to know


Today we are sending informational notes and requests for small donations to our neighbors for The Leukemia Lymphoma Society. We are also sending in the organization's 'goal' for us - a check, as people just do not respond well to such mailers any more. Long ago, our mother used to walk the neighborhoods for so many charitable organizations, seeking monetary support and educating everyone as she sweetly visited with each. That really worked much better.

But at least if the people open their envelopes, they will see helpful tips on Blood Cancers, how to recognize symptoms, possible causes and how to get help for themselves or a loved one. From the informational mailer, here are the potential signs and symptoms of Leukemia, Lymphoma, Myeloma and other blood cancers. The symptoms can result from several medical conditions, but...  Read More

Tea's benefits extend to old bones, Japanese researchers claim - AFP

Please note: This is an opinion piece and not intended as health advice. Some people cannot have tea, and in fact, it is harmful to them. We happen to love and enjoy it, so are grateful if there are healthy benefits included in addition to thirst-quenching, refreshing attributes. But be sure to check with your physician before you make any changes in lifestyle/diet...to be sure that they are right for you.



Researchers in Japan say black tea could help treat osteoporosis, a bone condition affecting older people, but admit you need to drink an awful lot of it.

Scientists say the humble brew contains an antioxidant that can prevent the loss of bone density commonly seen in old age that makes the elderly more vulnerable to fractures.

Breast Cancer Occurs Most Often in These 5 States - The Motley Fool

By Sean Williams

With the exception of certain types of skin cancers, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. Though the disease is by no means relegated just to women -- more than 2,000 cases were diagnosed in men in 2011 -- women do account for about 99% of all breast cancer diagnoses (220,097 in 2011) according to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It's also the second-leading cancer-based cause of death for women behind only lung cancer.

In addition to being among the most-diagnosed cancer types, it's also quite expensive to treat. Based on a study published in Dec. 2012 in the American Journal of Managed Care, the direct costs of treating breast cancer totaled $16.5 billion in 2010. This amounts to about 13%...  Read More

Diabetes drug could increase lifespan: study - The Wire

Relaxnews


A large-scale study conducted by researchers at Cardiff University says that type 2 diabetes patients live longer than people without the disease thanks to surprising benefits of their medication, metformin, which could be expanded for use in non-diabetics.

 

Murmurs of metformin's attributes had been circulating within the scientific community, and the findings of the Cardiff study not only build on its benefits but are of particular interest due to the massive sample size of 180,000 participants.

Researchers compared survival rates of type 2 diabetes patients taking metformin, a first-line therapy, with those of patients on a less-prescribed diabetes drug called sulphonylurea, known for undesirable side effects such as weight gain and hypoglycemia.

10 Foods to Eat so You Never Have to Diet - Redbook Healthy Living

By Redbook | Healthy Living



These powerhouse foods help keep unwanted pounds at bay, and it has nothing to do with counting calories and fat grams. By Amy Capetta, REDBOOK. 

Garlic 
This herb does more than just give meals extra flavor and scent--it can also help keep your tummy flat through its naturally occurring chemical allicin, says registered dietitian and Nutritious Life founder Keri Glassman. "Allicin kills off harmful bacteria in your digestive tract to keep your gut healthy and functioning, which means less bloat." Also, Korean researchers discovered that this member of the onion family may have an anti-obesity effect thanks to proteins being stimulated in the liver. Toss garlic in almost any poultry, pasta, or veggie dish, or add it to dressings and sauces.

Scientists restore normal blood sugar levels in diabetic mice - The Verge

By Arielle Duhaime-Ross

(Salk Institute for Biological Studies)

Scientists have discovered a novel protein-based treatment that restores normal blood-sugar levels in diabetic mice for a period of seven days. The study, published in Naturetoday, reveals a possible new therapeutic pathway for people who suffer from type 2 diabetes. "We had no idea that this molecule would have this effect," says Michael Downes, a diabetes researcher at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in California and a co-author of the study. "But it appears that the molecule restores insulin sensitivity in diabetic mice."
