Eat your way out of Alzheimers
In yesterday’s Sunday paper there was a report from the annual conference of the Society for Neuroscience (sfn.org). New discoveries say that amyloid-beta-proteins “float“ freely and block“ neural synapses, the good news is that the well-known “plaques“ are actually good, because they “soak“ up some of these proteins.
The even better news is that in absence of a vaccination or medication one can drink red wine, eat oily fish and lots of curries, exercise, rest and avoid stress to escape Alzheimers.
While reading this an old saying came to my mind, a recommendation for a long and healthy life:
Feel hungry once a day (..and then eat oily fish with curry and drink red wine)
Be out of breath once a day (..from some exercise you like to do)
Laugh once a day (…when relaxing with friends)
That’s it for today, I am off to talk to our wine-merchant and the guy from the Indian curry shop. I am off on foot, of course.
