Today, I read a heartbreaking story in the Christchurch Press. It was a News Feature, and it talked about “As the population ages, the number of people who have Alzheimer’s disease grows”. The story spoke of a New Plymouth man caring for his wife. Truly sad and the toll on the partner and the family of anyone caring from a partner with Alzheimer’s is massive. The article says that in New Zealand there are 60,000 people with dementia and the largest case is Alzheimer’s though there is little data.
Scary reading it is estimated there will be 154,000 people with dementia by 2050.
In fact by the numbers:
60,000 people in New Zealand have dementia
It as I have already stated it’s estimated there be 154,000 people in NZ with dementia by 2050.
Two out of three Kiwis are touched by dementia, and 64 percent of those people were family members.
Dementia costs NZ more that $1 billion a year.
Dementia is progressive and cannot be prevented, slowed or cured.
It can’t be prevented, slowed or cured.
Let’s see if anyone reads my blogs. I listened to Dr Qutab speak, and on a recording, he said the numbers in America with Dementia and they are huge and growing. The leading cause of death over and above everything else. He went on to say the Kyani Triangle of Health is the answer. Just take a moment to absorb that! I can’t say it cures it. Based on what Dr Qutab has said I will be taking my Kyani for the rest of my life. Can’t afford $7 a day – what quality of life do you want to have. $235 a month for your peace of mind.
Blueberries for Brain Protection – what you do now sets you up for the rest of your life.
“When it comes to brain protection, there is nothing quite like blueberries. Call the blueberry the brain berry.” -Dr. James Joseph, Ph D,
Lead scientist in the Laboratory of Neuroscience at the
USDA Nutrition Research Center On Aging, Tufts University
“When it comes to brain protection, there is nothing quite like blueberries,” according to James Joseph, PhD and lead scientist in the Laboratory of Neuroscience at the USDA Nutrition Research Center On Ageing at Tufts University. “Call the blueberry the brain berry,” continues Dr. Joseph.
Dr Joseph’s claim was made with the publication of his landmark blueberry research. It has since been bolstered by animal studies demonstrating that daily consumption of modest amounts of blueberries dramatically slows impairments in memory and motor coordination that typically accompany ageing.
Research published in the journal Neurobiology of Aging showed nutritional antioxidants found in blueberries can reverse age-related declines in neuronal signal transduction as well as cognitive and motor deficits.
The investigators speculated that blueberry supplementation may also help slow declines in brain function that accompany diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease.
Another study published in the journal Nutritional Neuroscience found that a blueberry supplemented diet greatly enhance the spatial memory of laboratory animals. When later examined in vitro, the animals’ brains demonstrated structural changes associated with an improved capacity for learning.
