Drugs High Fructose Corn Sugar High Triglycerides Causes Synaptic Alzheimer's Disease

Tags: Drugs High Fructose Corn Sugar High Triglycerides Causes Synaptic Alzheimer's Disease, Vitamin D and Incontinence
Progress on research indicating how Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease occurs starting to become clearer.

What the drug companies don't tell you is often as dangerous to the public as what they do advertise. Detrol, a billion dollar business, is supposed to alleviate urinary incontinence. It also tends to dry both the bladder and salivary glands not based on human studies, but studies on cats! I guess many women like cats so that is all right!

I have certainly blogged most of you about Dementia Causing Drugs such as Pfizer/Pharmacia's Detrol caused Dementia. I first encountered an antihistamine drug being taken off the market for blocking the enzyme that gets rid of excess proteins. I, therefore, suspect any relatively small. See book by Melody Petersen, "Our Daily Meds".

Dr. Cannell sent me an e-mail about the April issue of Obstetrics discussing one of the major problems with incontinence due to a lack of enough Vitamin D. Those who had enough had far fewer incidence of incontinence. The problems usually start at 20. I suspected that antihistamines which are widely used may be blocking these enzymes probably causes dementia, especially in seniors who already have some diminished brain capacity.

Mice studies about the early 1990's showed that Alzheimer's mice who behaved as very old mice, became a young mice able to go through the maze as fast as the young ones again when an enzyme was given to reduce excess proteins in the brain. The mice still had the original plaque. Drugs may play a similar role in our brain to cause Dementia.

I became a fan of Sharon Begley of Newsweek who writes occasional columns and blogs much more often at their website. She criticized to One Track Mind Alzheimer's researchers for just funding plaque studies as the cause of Alzheimer's. Beta-Amyloid is actually necessary for brain function, but hinders the brain function when the excess protein destroying enzyme port is blocked by high concentrations of it. In chemistry, when the concentration of a component gets high, things drop out of solution! The abnormal plaque may be a result of a crystallization process, but I do not really know. Prions in Mad Cow Disease may just be another comparable route to Demential.

From that point on I suspected that dementia was a synaptic dementia. The excess proteins tended to block the synapse so the neurons could not send signals. Within the last month or so, it was reported that the B-Amyloid blocks the synapse in the brain! Of course when the concentration of proteins gets high enough, enough neurons will be killed to stop vital functions and cause death.

Guess what? That is what Scott A. Small said briefly on the 6th Charlie Rose Brain series!

A Columbia University Professor Small talked briefly about unpublished items in the sixth in the Brain Series on Scott A. Small, MD is Herbert Irving Associate Professor in Neurology at Columbia University talked about his recent work done recently very briefly.

He reluctantly gave out the information about his unpublished studies which he said proves that late onset Alzheimer's Disease is a synaptic disease first. He said very briefly that both sugar and insulin responses are correlated with Dementia!

This makes sense because Alzheimer's is also correlated with Obesity and High Amounts of Low Density Lipoprotein or LDL and low levels of High density Lipoprotein. For a long time the levels of Triglycerides was not thought to be a problem. More recent studies indicate that the ratio of High Density Lipoprotein or HDL to Triglycerides is the most important.

Only a few foods at McDonalds has no High Fructose Corn Sugar! Chicken Nuggets without the sugar laden sauce, sausage, black coffee, and several more.

... Researcher Miriam Bocarsly counters that the study wasn't designed to demonstrate "what sugar does for the body." Instead, her team set out to uncover what happens when rats subsist on a diet rich in high-fructose corn syrup for six months. They reported that rats fed water sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup developed more belly fat and had an increased level of circulating triglycerides, fat's chemical form in the body.

(Belly fat or Omentum releases ghrelin which increases appetite. A fatter belly produces more ghrelin and decreases testosterone in men. If we become hungry, it produces ghrelin to force us to eat. That is why it is important to eat self-prepared food you bring to work so you never go hungry. Sucrose does suppress appetite so we do not eat too much, but the Princeton study showed Fructose does not suppress appetite so we eat more using the same calories of cane sugar and high fructose corn sugar. Jim)

"As far as we're aware, this is the first long-term study of high-fructose corn syrup in animals," Bocarsly says. "That's important, because you don't eat high-fructose corn syrup once; you eat it every day, probably since you were a child. But you don't see too many studies with humans because you can't keep someone in the lab for 10 years and make them eat high fructose corn syrup." ...

Bocarsly of Princeton University responds to Industry Lies: "What we did in the lab was what was most interesting scientifically. We're a behavioral neuroscience lab, so what we're interested in finding is how these foods affect your brain chemistry. We hope this is the first step in a long series of research." Makers of high-fructose corn syrup were not pleased by Bocarsly going public with admittedly preliminary findings, which they suspect some consumers will interpret as another reason to avoid high-fructose corn syrup. ...

... It was Dr. Lustig’s presentation on this subject that really opened my eyes to this issue, and then Dr. Johnson, who is the chairman of medicine at the University of Colorado, reinforced that with his book The Sugar Fix: The High-Fructose Fallout That Is Making You Fat and Sick .

You probably already know that fructose is a sugar, but what you may not realize is that it’s distinctly different from other sugars as it’s metabolized through very specific pathways that differ from those of glucose, for example, and through its distinct metabolic action, uric acid is generated .

Uric acid is a normal waste product found in your blood. High levels of uric acid are normally associated with gout, but it has been known for a long time that people with high blood pressure, overweight, and people with kidney disease, often have high uric acid levels as well.

It used to be thought that the uric acid was secondary in these conditions, and not the cause -- but Dr. Johnson’s research indicates that it could be a lead player in the development of these conditions.

And it turns out that one of the most potent ways to raise uric acid is via fructose!
