VITAMIN B12 AND ALZHEIMER’S
Posted on Sep 29, 2021, 6 p.m.

Also, adding the vitamin to the diet only worked if the animals were deficient in B12. Giving more B12 to animals with healthy levels does not help them in any way.

“Well, I’m not a <insert your favorite credentialed professional>, I have never played one on TV, and I didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, but here are some simple thoughts.”

Given the catastrophic effect of Alzheimer’s on any individual and the low cost in terms of money and effort to take a supplement, it seems like an easy decision.

“Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin … …” — NIH

It’s one of those things the body can easily discard when you’ve had enough.

Seems like a cheap and easy way to possible avoid a disastrous disease while the experts are figuring out why it works in worms.

HEALTH: Healthy eating has the potential to not only prevent, but reverse some of our leading causes of death

Food as Medicine | Michael Greger, M.D. | TEDxSedona
Published on Feb 28, 2018

According to the Global Burden of Disease study (the largest study of disease risk factors in history; funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation) the #1 cause of both death and disability in the United States is our diet. Cigarettes now only kill about a half million Americans every year, whereas our diet appears to kill hundreds of thousands more. The good news is that means we have tremendous power over our health destiny and longevity. Healthy eating has the potential to not only prevent, but reverse some of our leading causes of death including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure. Why, then, is nutrition not the #1 thing taught in medical school? American physician, author, and speaker on public health issues, particularly the benefits of a whole foods, plant-based diet and the harms of eating animal products. He is a vegan and the creator of NutritionFacts.org. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

I follow Doc Greger’s advice as best I can. It’s very hard to retain yourself after a lifetime of bad eating. Hopefully, the readers will save themselves a lot of pain and heartache (literally) and try it.
