Study: The Alzheimer's-Aluminum Direct Link

Mercola Aluminum has been long known to be neurotoxic, with mounting evidence that chronic exposure is a factor in many neurological diseases, including dementia, autism, and Parkinson's disease. However, definitive scientific proof is difficult to establish due toth the lack of longitudinal studies, as well as pushback from industries that use aluminum in their products. Despite the shortage of conclusive studies, mounting scientific evidence really leaves little room for doubt. Case in point: a new case study from Keele University in the UK1 unequivocally shows high levels of aluminum in the brain of an individual exposed to aluminum at work, who later died from Alzheimer's disease. 5 Major Causes of Alzheimer's (One of them is Contracted Through Food!) 'Smart drug' taken by one in four students really does boost performance.

Dr Ruairidh Battleday said: “Modafinil can and does enhance some cognitive functions.

'Smart drug' taken by one in four students really does boost performance

“For the first time, we have a cognitive enhancer that appears not to have significant detrimental cognitive, emotional, or physical side effects. “This means that it is time for a wider societal debate on how to integrate and regulate cognitive enhancement . The ethical exploration is a huge and important goal for the near future: one that both scientists, politicians, and the public need to be involved in.” Modafinil is taken by up to one in four students at British universities Photo: ALAMY A survey run by the Oxford University student newspaper The Tab showed that 26 per cent of students at the university said they had used it.

Interest in Nootropics has grown exponentially over recent years within the health conscious communities and is still a trend moving upwards as I write this.

17 Legal Brain Enhancing Drugs That Will Expand Your Consciousness

Nootropics are essentially smart drugs that can be bought over the counter or online at retail prices below $50. The majority of Nootropics are cognitive enhancers, that is they are designed to effectively improve cognitive functions such as memory (short term and/or long term), learning, alertness, focus and attention. Other Nootropics aim at reducing mental stress and fatigue, relax the mind and body and enhance the mood throughout the day. The Spice That Prevents Fluoride From Destroying Your Brain. “Fluoride is found everywhere today, from antibiotics to drinking water, no stick pans to toothpaste, making exposure inevitable.

The Spice That Prevents Fluoride From Destroying Your Brain

All the more reason why research proving this common spice can prevent fluoride damage is so promising!” —Sayer Ji Contributing Writer for Wake Up World. Fluoride’s neurotoxicity has been the subject of academic debate for decades, and now a matter of increasingly impassioned controversy among the general public, as well. From ‘conspiracy theories’ about it being first used in drinking water in Russian and Nazi concentration camps to chemically lobotomize captives, to its now well-known IQ lowering properties, to its ability to enhance the calcification of the pineal gland – the traditional ‘seat of the soul’ – many around the world, and increasingly in the heavily fluoridated regions of the United States, are starting to organize at the local and statewide level to oust this ubiquitous toxicant from municipal drinking water.

Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) - National Institutes of Health (NIH) Warning: Multi-tasking May Shrink Your Brain! If you are sending an SMS, watching the TV or listening to the radio at a single time, stop it right away.

Warning: Multi-tasking May Shrink Your Brain!

As per a study conducted by researchers at University of Sussex, multi-tasking shrinks the brain. The study suggest that men and women who frequently used several types of technology at the same time have less grey matter in a key part of their brain. "Simultaneously using mobile phones, laptops and other media devices could be changing the structure of our brains," said researchers.

Notably, the part of the brain that shrinks is involved in processing emotion. The researchers have linked multi-tasking with a shortened attention span, depression, anxiety, and lower grades at school. Little Things Matter: Shifting IQs down a notch. We know that certain environmental contaminants are linked to decreases in children's intelligence quotient (IQ).

Little Things Matter: Shifting IQs down a notch

A recently released seven-minute video, titled "Little Things Matter," explains what scientists know about this association — and why it's important. Three types of environmental contaminants were discussed in the video. All three have been linked to falling IQs, and all three have been found in the bodies of the U.S. population — both children and adults — by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). MIT Scientist Shows What Can Happen To Children Who Receive Aluminum Containing Vaccines.

A claim often heard from the “pro-vaccination” community when it comes to linking vaccines to autism is that there is no evidence to substantiate those claims.

MIT Scientist Shows What Can Happen To Children Who Receive Aluminum Containing Vaccines

This view is absolutely absurd and dangerous given the fact that a tremendous amount of scientific evidence exists and is available in the public domain that suggests some vaccines could possibly play a role in the development of autism. To say that there is no probability of some vaccinations contributing to the development of autism contradicts the science. When it comes to Monsanto’s glyphosate and other commonly used pesticides (as well as other environmental toxins), the science linking them to possible causes of autism (among many other diseases like Alzheimer’s and cancer) seems to be irrefutable and abundant.

Only .05% of people have recorded IQs of over 140. If you want to have the brilliance of Stephen Hawking or the intellectual gusto of Kim Ung-Yong who was auditing college courses at the ripe old age of 4, you can try these 6 plants to get those brain cells charged up and ready to fire: Spice Up Your Memory: Just One Gram of Turmeric a Day Could Boost Memory. Monash Edu Just one gram of turmeric added to breakfast could help improve the memory.

Spice Up Your Memory: Just One Gram of Turmeric a Day Could Boost Memory

Adding just one gram of turmeric to breakfast could help improve the memory of people who are in the very early stages of diabetes and at risk of cognitive impairment. The finding has particular significance given that the world’s ageing population means a rising incidence of conditions that predispose people to diabetes, which in turn is connected to dementia. Early intervention could help to reduce the burden, whether by halting the disease or reducing its impact, said Emeritus Professor Mark Wahlqvist, from the Monash Asia Institute at Monash University.

Professor Wahlqvist recently led a study in Taiwan that tested the working memory of men and women aged 60 or older who had recently been diagnosed with untreated pre-diabetes. Newly Discovered Virus Can Actually Make Us “Dumber” A new study conducted by the Johns Hopkins Medical School and the University of Nebraska has found a virus, previously thought to live only in freshwater algae, that makes people “dumber” by infecting their brains. The study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) journal in October. The virus -called chlorovirus ATCV-1 -was found in the throats of healthy people. The scientists were conducting a completely unrelated study when they found that the DNA of the chlorovirus Acanthocystis turfacea chlorella virus 1 (ATCV-1) matched with the DNA in the throats of healthy people. Cocoa could reverse age-related memory decline. A new study suggests that naturally occurring chemicals in cocoa can reverse age-related memory decline in healthy adults.

Aspartame Is By Far, the Most Dangerous Substance On the Market That Is Added To Foods. Email this article to a friend Aspartame is the technical name for the brand names, NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, and Equal-Measure. Aspartame was discovered by accident in 1965, when James Schlatter, a chemist of G.D. Searle Company was testing an anti-ulcer drug.

Aspartame was approved for dry goods in 1981 and for carbonated beverages in 1983. It was originally approved for dry goods on July 26, 1974, but objections filed by neuroscience researcher Dr John W. Why Are the Farmers Depressed and Suicidal?

Promising Results: Doctors Treat Depression & Anorexia With New Therapy – Holding A Magnet To The Head.

A new treatment for depression has been showing some promising results for patients experiencing chronic depression. The treatment is called transcranial magnetic stimulation, or rTMS, and like the title suggests the treatment involves having an electromagnetic field applied to the head to stimulate specific areas. Brain scans suggest transcranial magnetic stimulation can cause changes in the circuitry of the brain, hence why the treatment is being targeted to people with severe depression and other psychological conditions. In depression, doctors target the prefrontal cortex, the region of the brain involved in decision making, mood and emotional responses. This month, U.S. researchers reported that the treatment triggered significant improvements in patients with severe depression who had failed to respond to other treatments, including antidepressants.

Warning: Multi-tasking May Shrink Your Brain! These Common Pharmaceutical Meds Destroy Your Brain. Christina Sarich | Naturalsociety | Sept 23rd 2014 You wouldn’t think that taking a little pain pill would cause long term cognitive impairment, but that’s just one of the commonly prescribed (or even OTC) pharmaceutical medications which were studied in a six-year test to see what kind of neurological damage was caused. Unfortunately, the research found that these pharmaceuticals, commonly taken for a variety of common medical conditions including insomnia, allergies, or incontinence, cause long-term damage to the brain.

Rosemary and Lavender Essential Oils Proven to Boost Mood and Memory. Christina Sarich| Naturalsociety | Aug 7th 2014 Though the Greeks used rosemary and lavender essential oils to anoint their most prized persons, though both Chinese and Ayurdevic practitioners have heralded the uses of essential oils for ages, the use of lavender and rosemary were considered ‘mythical’ by most modern medical experts until very recently.

Only after lab testing do scientists now agree that these amazing lavender and rosemary essential oils can alleviate depression and improve intellectual performance. Lavender has a slight sedative effect and is enormously calming, there for acting as a solution for anxiety and sadness – even in a dental office where people often feel highly anxious or even annoyed.
