A recent clinical trial attempted to discover the cognitive benefits of Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GH-RH). Both slightly impaired and unimpaired patients received the hormone, while some received placebo injections. The results showed that GH-RH can boost cognitive capacity. This could be a major break-through in the battle against Alzheimer’s disease. For more information visit the Conscious Evolution Institute of Hormone Replacement at HGH TV.

Heavy metals are dangerous because they tend to bioaccumulate. Bioaccumulation means an increase in the concentration of a chemical in a biological organism over time, compared to the chemical's concentration in the environment. Compounds accumulate in living things any time they are taken up and stored faster than they are broken down (metabolized) or excreted. Heavy metals can enter a water supply by industrial and consumer waste, or even from acidic rain breaking down soils and releasing heavy metals into streams, lakes, rivers, and groundwater. Heavy metal toxicity can result in damaged or reduced mental and central nervous function, lower energy levels, and damage to blood composition, lungs, kidneys, liver, and other vital organs. Long-term exposure may result in slowly progressing physical, muscular, and neurological degenerative processes that mimic Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, muscular dystrophy, and multiple sclerosis. Allergies are not uncommon and repeated long-term contact with some metals or their compounds may even cause cancer (International Occupational Safety and Health Information Centre 1999). The association of symptoms indicative of acute toxicity is not difficult to recognize because the symptoms are usually severe, rapid in onset, and associated with a known exposure or ingestion (Ferner 2001): cramping, nausea, and vomiting; pain; sweating; headaches; difficulty breathing; impaired cognitive, motor, and language skills; mania; and convulsions. The symptoms of toxicity resulting from chronic exposure (impaired cognitive, motor, and language skills; learning difficulties; nervousness and emotional instability; and insomnia, nausea, lethargy, and feeling ill) are also easily recognized; however, they are much more difficult to associate with their cause. Symptoms of chronic exposure are very similar to symptoms of other health conditions and often develop slowly over months or even years. Sometimes the symptoms of chronic expo

Rupert Stroud – a unique British singer/songwriter whose outstanding beat-driven sound has seen him share a live stage with the likes of Texas, James Blunt, JP Cooper, Little Comets, garner radio claim from names including Dermot O’Leary, Alex Lester and Janice Forsyth and shoot to No11 in the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart with his last EP. Now the Yorkshire boy is back with probably his best work to date as he releases his new Single/EP ‘Heart & Soul’ on 28 July. As an ambassador for Alzheimer’s Research UK, Rupert is also a well-known media campaigning voice, appearing to over 200 million people through an Al Jazeera International News broadcast on ‘Inside Story’, as well as featuring in The Guardian. A voice of campaigning substance, a heart that shines with hope and a lyrical and vocal ability that’s so unique it moves mountains – Rupert Stroud is back with his best sound ever! The EP ‘Heart and Soul’ is a generous 6-track mini offering, born from Rupert’s newly created DIY studio in Leeds, a freshly built space which gave him a creative awakening and full control and liberation of his own music, on his own label, Xidus Music. The EP is a musical canvass, with Rupert’s life-experiences soaking into the very fabric of his creative process as he draws influences from his day-to-day life. It exposes how main stream media, and humans in general, focus on the bad in life – cutting out the good. ‘Heart & Soul’ is a tempting-taster of what we can expect from the forthcoming album from this UK artist. Bolder, more aware and seeing life through wiser eyes, this sound takes on a mature perspective and observation from Mr Stroud.

December 2006 (Medialink) - The New England Journal of Medicine published a study on December 20 on a new brain imaging technique that researchers found to be highly accurate in detecting Alzheimer's disease and differentiating it from natural brain aging - a key clinical step in the early assessment of the disease. Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) who conducted the study will now work with Siemens Medical Solutions to open clinical trials of the imaging agent as a first step towards making this technology available to patients. The imaging agent is the first such marker designed to identify Alzheimer's disease pathology specifically, and differentiate it from normal aging. Currently, the only way to confirm Alzheimer's disease is through autopsy. However, this new imaging marker is designed to be injected into the bloodstream, and seek out Alzheimer's-specific protein deposits in the brain, causing them to light up under an imaging technology called positron emission tomography (PET). -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Produced for Siemens Medical Solutions

Alzheimer's Disease Research (ADR) has granted two Centennial Awards of one million dollars each to Dr. Bradley T. Hyman of Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and Dr. Donald F. Weaver of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. The researchers were chosen through a competitive peer review process that began in 2006, marking 100 years since Dr. Alois Alzheimer described this disease. ADR's Centennial Awards will foster innovative, multidisciplinary research, aimed at slowing or reversing the progression of, and ultimately preventing, this devastating brain disorder.

When you ask Howard Ulene to sum up what it's like to live with Alzheimer's disease there's no hesitation. Howard Ulene, Alzheimer's disease patient, drug trial participant: "In one word, forgetfulness and in many words forgetfulness." Once a savvy businessman, Howard Ulene is now using his entrepreneurial spirit to battle the disease. Howard Ulene, Alzheimer's disease patient, drug trial participant: "What you have to do is get over the fear and be very maudlin and poignant about it and then say I’m going to beat you SOB because I simply won’t except this limited life." About two years ago Howard joined a clinical drug trial for Alzheimer's disease. The drug he received, now known as Flurizan, has just entered phase three of the drug trial. Sam Gandy, M.D., Alzheimer's Association: "Making it to phase three is really unprecedented and these are medicines the likes of which we've never seen before. I think the chances of hitting something successful in the next five years are very good." There are nine new Alzheimer's treatments in phase three trials-the final step before FDA approval. All offering hope to either slow down or prevent the onset of Alzheimer's. Sam Gandy, M.D., Alzheimer's Association: "There are several steps leading from the beginning of the disease to what we see clinically, and what we hope to do is aim a different bullet, aim a different medicine at each of those steps." For Howard, the improvement from taking Flurizan has been tremendous. Art Ulene, M.D., brother: "His results in this clinical trial have been absolutely stunning. I got my brother back. I got the guy I knew as my brother back, he’s not perfect, but the old Howard is back and now able to communicate." As with any phase three trial, the results aren't final until the study ends and data are analyzed. I'm Mary Norton reporting.

During my grandfather's last few days at home before his admission into an assisted living home geared towards Alzheimer's patients, I made a short documentary. The video shows the dementia in a humorous, factual, and heart-touching way. Symptoms of dementia are listed throughout the video along with examples from my grandfather. My grandfather has since passed.
