Apparently Curry stops the onslaught of Alzheimers and dementia ...

My grandmother ate LOADS of curry and she still got Senile Dementia! Still you can't argue as its SCIENCE!!!!!

Oh, and BTW... If I can divert the course of the conversation from Chris' rosy cheeks for a sec. For anyone with a broadband and a computer that's on for a few hours every day I recommend having a look into Folding@Home programme. You install a small client on your computer and that program will then make scientific calculations for specific research projects using spare computing power your machine is not needing at that moment. As for now there is over 1.300.000 machines connected into, what effectively becomes, a global supercomputer. You do not have a choice of what scientific programme you'd like to contribute to, but many of them revolve around incurable diseases and genetic conditions these including Alzheimer's, Parkinson and cancer.
It's basically same principal as CETI home project but instead of wasting time and electricity on searching for wee green men from outer space you actually contribute to something useful.

You know, every little supermarket :>

With my pitiful 24kbps I shall have to refrain atm. It is a great idea tho. It has been around for a while now and hasn't gotten a bad rep yet.

However, Chris's Rosy Cheeks are far more fun to talk about. :wink:
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

possibly some useful info

Postby renfield » Mon Dec 07, 2009 3:50 am

this is the first time I have ever posted on a forum in my life, so here goes.
My partner is a holistic therapist and has been doing some reasearch recently on-line into alternative treatments (she suffers from fibromyalgia[I think that is how it is spelt]), one of the areas she has been looking into is nutrition, and how the use of dietry suppliments can be used to treat chronic long tern disorders.
during many hours looking into how different suppliments are used and what studies have been undertaken to quantify their effects. she came across a report into altzheimers' and some other dementia conditions.
According to the report in question in a significant proportion of cases that were looked at, the patients had been mis-diagnosed (by specialists, not just GP's)
A simple blood test revealed, that in these cases the patients in question were not suffering from any dementia related illness but a severe vitamin deficiancy (I think it was either one of the B or D vitamins, it is 3:30am and I cannot remember which). When these patients were treated with a course of these vitamins(albeit at a very high dose) they all went on to make a full recovery.
please pass this on to Terry, and I also hope this may be of some help to other sufferers out-there.
Don't loose hope.
Stay strong.
There is a cure out there waiting to be found if this doesn't help.

Hi Renfield

I've never heard of this, but I should imagine such severe vitamin deficiency wouldn't be the case in someone able to feed themselves. It seems more likely in immobilised elderly. I do know that dementia can be a result of dehydration. As I understand it, such cases of dementia have occured in, shockingly, hospital in-patients :shock:

:cry: Thats exactly what happened to my great uncle - in the early 70's he went in for a hip operation and came out unable to talk very coherently and unable to wash or eat without assistance. The irony was that he was well off and opted to go private. The nursing staff thought he was just 'quiet' and a no fuss patient and only made desultory checks on him after his op and it turned out he may have had a stroke a few days afterwards - they didn't notice it for about 2 days after he'd not eaten in all that time although they did put him on a drip. He never made a full recovery and even though the hip operation was completely successsful he never really walked again and was bedridden and essentially unabvle to communicate until he died about 4 years later :x

I received THIS LINK of a Guardian article on Altzheimers as an email today from someone named Moya Jackson. There was no return email address, so I'll thank Moya here and hope she sees it.

Thank you Moya! :)

I found that someone with Alzheimers is less likely to have cancer. :wink:
