MERCURY & ALZHEIMER’S

Mercury causes Alzheimer’s notes Boyd Haley, PhD

Mercury causes Alzheimer’s disease notes Boyd Haley, PhD.

Mercury is the only substance ever found to cause the exact same biochemical changes seen in Alzheimer’s disease.

Boyd says that anybody who says that mercury does not or cannot cause Alzheimer’s is either a liar, a crook or a fool.

MERCURY & ALZHEIMERS

Mercury is the cause of Alzheimer’s: Boyd Haley, PhD

Mercury is the only material ever found to cause the exact same five (5) biochemical changes seen in Alzheimer’s Disease according to Boyd Haley, PhD, former Prof. and Chairman of the Chemistry Dept. at the University of Kentucky, who has been studying mercury toxicity since 1987.

  1. Mercury causes Tubulin to fall apart which you see in Alzheimer’s.
  2. Mercury causes Neurofibrillary Tangles which you see in Alzheimer’s.
  3. Mercury causes overproduction of Beta Amyloid which you see in Alzheimer’s.
  4. Mercury causes Hyper-phosphorylation of Tau protein which you see in Alzheimer’s.
  5. Mercury causes inhibition of Creatine Kinase which you see in Alzheimer’s.

Mercury is found in dental amalgams (mercury / silver fillings which are 50% mercury) and some vaccines, as well as being found in fish, and is released into the air from coal-fired power plants.

COFFEE

Drinking 3-5 cups of coffee per day associated w/ 31% lower risk of dying from neurological disease

Among people who had never smoked, people who drank 3.1 to 5 cups of coffee per day had a 31% lower risk of dying from a neurological disease (Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s) over some number of years compared to people who were not coffee drinkers according to an analysis of data from 74,890 women in the Nurses’ Health Study, 93,054 women in the Nurses’ Health Study II, and 40,557 men in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study.

People who consumed more than 5 cups of coffee per day had a 40% lower risk of dying from a neurological disease (Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s) compared to non-drinkers.

STATINS & ALZHEIMER’S

Statin use is associated with a 1% to 12% increased risk of Alzheimer’s

Statin use is associated with a 1% to 12% increased risk of Alzheimer’s according to an analysis of data on 30,343,035 persons aged 40 to 65 years between January 1, 2008, and December 31, 2012 as noted in an article on Medscape (Melville, 2016).

Reference

Melville NA. Statin Use Linked to Increased Parkinson’s Risk. American Neurological Association (ANA) 2016 Annual Meeting, Presented October 16, 2016; Abstract S137: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/870996.

The article on Medscape notes:

“We identified 20,000 Parkinson’s disease patients and looked at whether using statins was associated with a higher or lower risk, and we found people using statins have a higher risk of the disease, so this is the opposite of what has been hypothesized,” senior author Xuemei Huang, MD, PhD, vice chair for research at Penn State College of Medicine, Hershey, Pennsylvania, told Medscape Medical News.

The same is true for Alzheimer’s — it’s the opposite of what has been hypothesized.

(The same research group found that statin use was found to be associated with a 58% increased risk of Parkinson’s.)

CHOLESTEROL & ALZHEIMER’S

Each 100 mg of dietary cholesterol intake associated with a 10% lower risk of Alzheimer’s

Each 100 mg intake of cholesterol per day was associated with a 10% lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease, although this difference was not quite statistically significant, but almost. (Close enough for me.)

Each 0.5 eggs eaten per day was associated with a 11% lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease, although this difference was not quite statistically significant, but almost. (Close enough for me.)

Half an egg contains very roughly 100 mg of cholesterol.

ALZHEIMER’S & DIET

People with the highest percent carbohydrate intake were 89% more likely to have dementia

The one-fourth of people with the highest percent intake of carbohydrates (63% of calories) were 89% more likely to have mild cognitive impairment or dementia compare to the one-fourth of people with the lowest percent carbohydrate intake (41% of calories) according to a study from researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, USA.

“A dietary pattern with relatively high caloric intake from carbohydrates and low caloric intake from fat and proteins may increase the risk of [mild cognitive impairment] or dementia in elderly persons,” the authors of the study concluded.

THYROID & MITOCHONDRIA

Hypothyroidism reduces mitochondria; involved in congestive heart failure, Alzheimers, etc, Dr Starr

Hypothyroidism reduces the number and activity of mitochondria, the energy-producing cells, notes Mark Starr, MD, author of the wonderful book Hypothyroidism Type 2: The Epidemic.

Mitochondria make up one-third of the weight of the heart muscle, Dr. Starr notes in this short audio clip from a speech he gave in 2007 at an Orthomolecular Conference.

This appears to the connection as to how hypothyroidism can cause some forms of congestive heart failure where the heart muscle is too weak to pump enough blood to the rest of the body (cardiomyopathy). It's an energy problem.

Dr. Starr's book contains the wonderful "Before" and "After" pictures showing X-rays of enlarge hearts that shrink back to normal size after the patient is given natural desiccated thyroid.

A decrease in mitochondria also appears to be the connection of hypothyroidism to Alzheimer's, which Dr. Starr noted in another audio clip. Again, it's an energy problem. Read the entire article | Email this article
