“Reverse Engineering” Brain Tissue Reveals Sugar-Studded Protein Linked to Alzheimer’s Disease

A special sugar molecule has been discovered by Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers that could play a key role in the development of Alzheimer’s disease. In a bit of “reverse engineering” research using brain tissues from five people who died with Alzheimer’s disease, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers say they have discovered that a special sugar molecule …

Taking This Medication Can Raise Your Dementia Risk — Best Life

Your risk of developing dementia is determined by a wide range of factors—some of which you can control, and others you can’t. Your family history, for instance, is simply the luck of the draw, and much as you might wish to, you can’t change your age. On the other hand, things like your diet, alcohol …

As the pandemic ebbs, long-haul Covid still drains patients and confounds doctors

Emily Caffee, a physical therapist and lifelong athlete, cut her primary care provider slack for suggesting an antidepressant when she complained of fatigue, body aches and brain fog in the months after she became sick with Covid-19 in March 2020. “She did a very thorough medical workup, and a lot of the lab values came …

Link Between Exercise Intensity and Risk of Infection – Neuroscience News

Summary: Researchers identify the exertion level where aerosol particle emission increases exponentially, offering an explanation as to why exercise intensity may be linked to the transmission of infections. Source: TUM Before the study, it was known that the respiratory volume for untrained people increases from around 5–15 liters per minute at rest to over 100 …
