A while back, a friend sent me this video but, as some of you know, I have to go to town in order to use the library’s DSL bandwidth.
The following information, and more, may be found here.
In the USA, there are approximately 5.4 million people who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and, as we baby boomers age, that figure is expected to increase. In an interview, Dr. Mary Newport says that Alzheimer’s “…appears to be a type of diabetes of the brain and it’s a process that starts happening at least 10 or 20 years before you start having symptoms and it’s very similar to type 1 or 2 diabetes in that you develop a problem with insulin. Apparently, when brain cells use glucose as their fuel and when they don’t get glucose, they eventually die.
Ketones is an alternative fuel and are metabolized in the liver after eating medium chain triglicerides. Ketones are found in coconut oil and coconut oil also improves cholesterol levels and has helped people with Parkinson’s, ALS, epilepsy, autism, dementia and schizophrenia. Coconut oil is a natural antibiotic and kills bacteria and helps defend against viruses like herpes and HIV.
At England’s Oxford University, Professor Kieran Clark is leading a team of biochemists in developing a ketone ester that is ten times greater than coconut oil. Clark says, “it’s very expensive and we can’t make very much of it ourselves. What we’d like is funding so we could actually scale up and make it. But of course there’s no real profit in manufacturing stuff like that, and so people really don’t want to fund that sort thing.”
If President Obama is truly interested in health care, optimal, health care for USA citizens, I suggest he spend some of our hard earned tax dollars in support of Professor’s Clarke’s ketone ester. Instead of
sending gifting f-17 fighter jets to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt…take that same money and fund developing Professor Clark’s ketone ester.
Oh wait. That makes sense so…probably…it’s not going to happen, right? It’s enough to make me weep.
