A protein, previously found to be an effective blood-based biomarker of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, has for the first time been detected in the eye. The discovery lays the foundation for promising new diagnostic eye tests hoping to catch neurodegenerative diseases years before symptoms appear.

Researchers at the Max Planck Institute have demonstrated an intriguing new way to fight cancer by introducing molecular fibers into cells. While harmless to healthy cells, once these fibers encounter the specific environment of cancer cells they assemble into webs, activating the tumor’s self-destruct sequence. read more

Remission of Type 2 Diabetes

A new study has found how injections of a certain protein into the brain can help put mice and rats into remission from diabetes

Currently, the best treatments for type 2 diabetes involve managing blood sugar levels, but recent research suggests that the brain may be a new drug target for longer-term control. Now, a pair of studies on rats and mice has investigated how a certain peptide works to induce remission for animals with diabetes, which could lead to new breakthroughs in human treatments. read more

AKG may Improve Lifespan and Healthspan

An impressive new study from researchers at The Buck Institute for Research on Aging has found mice given supplements of an endogenous metabolite display significant healthspan improvements. The research follows on from other similar animal studies with the same compound, and a clinical trial in middle-aged humans is set to get underway.

Video Podcast – The Covid-19 Pandemic is a Scandal without Equal

by: Brent Smith

After reading a recent article by Daniel Horowitz (and others) I can think of nothing more scandalous, nothing more damaging to American society, war not withstanding – no greater waste of resources and riches, no greater loss of life and liberty – than the 2020 coronavirus scam.

The lies we’ve been fed for months of the seriousness of Covid-19, and the utter incompetence of supposed virus “experts” is both maddening and saddening beyond belief.

And what’s most infuriating is that virtually none of what I’m about to share is revelatory.

The Covid-19 pandemic is a scandal without equal, and after watching, I think you’ll agree that this is the first epidemic that has become about control instead of public safety.

Months of Covid Suffering – All for NOTHING!!

from the Right Scoop:

New CDC report reveals 94% of COVID deaths weren’t just COVID; Also 90% testing positives are false positives!

A new report out by the CDC reveals that 94% of COVID deaths in the US weren’t just COVID, meaning they all had other “health conditions and contributing causes:”

CBS 2 – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new data last week that depicts how many Americans who have died from COVID-19 also had contributing conditions.

According to the report, only 6% of deaths have COVID-19 as the only cause mentioned, revealing that 94% of patients who died from coronavirus also had other “health conditions and contributing causes.”

The CDC listed the following as the top underlying medical conditions linked to coronavirus deaths:

Influenza and pneumonia
Respiratory failure
Hypertensive disease
Diabetes
Vascular and unspecified dementia
Cardiac arrest
Heart failure
Renal failure
Intentional and unintentional injury, poisoning and other adverse events
Other medical conditions

The CDC explains that their data uses provisional death counts to “deliver the most complete and accurate picture of lives lost to COVID-19.”

These numbers are based on death certificates, which the organization says are the most reliable source of data. Death certificates reportedly contain information that is not available anywhere else and includes comorbid conditions, race and ethnicity and place of death.

The CDC says provisional death counts may not match counts from other sources, such as numbers from county health departments, because death certificates take time to be completed, states report at different rates, it takes officials extra time to code COVID-19 deaths, and because other reporting systems use different definitions or methods for counting deaths.

In other words, it’s the vulnerable who are vulnerable to the virus. What about the rest of us and all of this lockdown madness?

Although cavities are caused by bacteria, simply killing all of the bacteria in the mouth isn’t a good idea, as some of them aid in digestion or have other beneficial effects. A nanoparticle coating, however, could someday prevent cavities without harming bacteria. read more

Stunning Alzheimer’s Research Breakthrough

Research into Alzheimer's-related memory loss has uncovered an exciting new breakthrough in the form of a world-first gene therapy
Research into Alzheimer’s-related memory loss has uncovered an exciting new breakthrough in the form of a world-first gene therapy

Scientists in Australia have made an exciting breakthrough in Alzheimer’s research, demonstrating what they describe as the first gene-therapy-based approach for treating advanced forms of the disease. Through experiments in mice, the team was able to show how activating a key enzyme in the brain can prevent the kind of memory loss associated with advanced forms of Alzheimer’s, and even reverse it. read more

Scientists have discovered a new class of proteins that fight the destructive forces at play in Alzheimer’s and similar conditions

Scientists investigating the driving factors behind certain neurological diseases have uncovered a new class of proteins that could help us intervene in some of the destructive processes that take place in the brain. The findings throw up new possibilities when it comes to treating Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia, with the team hopeful they can also shed light on why some are more susceptible to these types of diseases than others. read more
