The word Alzheimer’s screams hell…
And if you’ve seen someone battered by declining brainpower and memory loss…
You’d easily understand why it’s a dreaded condition!
For you or a loved one to have a fighting chance and emerge victorious against this brain killer, you have to nip it in the bud before it takes hold.
You see, you can prevent dementia, but only if you know what to look for…and when to act…
And this process starts by being aware of the Alzheimer’s triggers you’re exposed to each day…
Believe it or not, the triggers are lurking in your own home..and in their numbers…
And you’d be shocked to the core to learn that many of the household products you use everyday are loaded with chemicals that have been linked to Alzheimer’s.
Not only are you sharing your home with them…they may already be inside your body…
And until you eliminate these ticking time bombs, you’re at a greater risk of developing chronic diseases that can destroy your health, including sending your treasured memories to the dogs.
So, what are these brain terrorists and what can you do to reduce your exposure and protect your precious brain?
The health of your brain is directly related to what you eat.
Cooking fresh foods at home, rather than nuking a package of junk food–is one of the best ways to shield yourself from the toxins in processed foods that can ravage your brain.
Not only that, what you cook makes a big difference, too.
A nutritious plate of salmon and veggies is far much better for your brain than a bowl of pasta.
But according to a study from Temple University, what you cook with is equally important…
Because if your favorite cooking oil is Canola, you could be courting the Alzheimer’s disease.
In the study cited above, researchers divided baby mice into 2 groups. Half were fed a standard diet, while the other half were fed a standard diet, plus 2 tablespoons of canola oil each day.
Now, these weren’t just ordinary mice–they had been genetically altered to develop Alzheimer’s disease as they aged.
At the end of 6 months, the mice that had been happing up canola oil performed worse on learning and memory tests than the mice that hadn’t tasted a drop of the oil.
Even worse, they had an increase in the plaques and tangles often seen in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients.
That’s probably because their brains were wallowing in a protein called beta-amyloid, which is associated with the formation of these plaques and tangles in at least half the cases of seniors with mild cognitive impairment.
And their brains showed damage to key synapses–the sites where neurons (brain cells) come together to form and retrieve precious memories.
Simply put…canola oil accelerated their development of Alzheimer’s symptoms.
Now, you may find this a little bit unsettling since canola oil is one of the most widely consumed vegetable oils in the world–after all, it’s cheaper than virgin olive oil, and most folks consider it a healthy option.
But far from it…
Canola oil doesn’t come anywhere near olive oil in terms of health benefits–it’s filled with toxic junk.
That’s because it often comes from genetically modified plants. It’s so highly processed that it contains artery-clogging trans fats–and it often retains residues from toxic pesticides.
And even though canola oil does contain anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, it packs twice as many omega-6 fatty acids…
Yet, for optimal health gains, the ratio should actually be in the reverse order.
Unfortunately, canola oil is found in everything from salad dressings to butter “alternatives”…to canned soups. So you can see why you should be hawk-eyed at reading labels to avoid it.
But don’t freak out one little bit…
Because there are oils proven to not only protect, but revitalize your brain.
And one of the best options is the minimally processed extra-virgin olive oil, which has been shown to fight both inflammation and Alzheimer’s brain damage.
Other brain-healthy choices include avocado oil and grapeseed oil.
Exit canola oil and enter the pearly white filling your teeth!
This brain killer is right inside your mouth…
And for years, dentists and even governments have worked very hard to convince you that the mercury amalgams (or silver) fillings in your mouth are as safe as mother’s milk!
They have brushed aside science and even lied to your face, even when they know that mercury is one of the most toxic substances on the planet.
But now…the University of Washington scientists are warning that as many as half of the US population are at a much greater risk from mercury fillings than you’ll ever be told…
And that risk can include a lifetime of brain damage that can’t be reversed.
Several studies have found that a high-powered MRI scan can cause the mercury in your fillings to leach out, exposing you to a toxic heavy metal that’s been linked to Alzheimer’s.
Even more chilling, the mercury can leach out just by sipping hot coffee or tea…or by using your cell phone.
And once that mercury leaks out, it can make your risk of Alzheimer’s skyrocket. In fact, high levels of mercury in the brain have been linked to neurofibrillary tangles and amyloid plaques in Alzheimer’s patients’ brains.
Science has also shown that mercury levels in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients can be up to 10 times as high as those found in the rest of the population.
Now, you’ve probably heard about the high mercury levels in certain fish and seafood–like tuna and swordfish–and how hazardous they can be to your health…
And like many folks, you probably have a few cans of tuna in your pantry right now.
If they are the higher-priced albacore, you did not only just shell out more money, you may also be putting your health at risk…
Because white tuna contains nearly triple the amount of mercury as light tuna.
If you stop and think about it, persuading people that it’s perfectly fine to put one of the most toxic elements into their mouths is simply fraudulent!
You see, despite all the deceit, mercury placed inside a tooth emits toxic vapors…and inhaling those fumes can be disastrous to your health.
Interestingly, under any other circumstances, you’d be warned to stay a mile away from inhaling mercury fumes, right?
For example if you break a CFL bulb–which contains just a tiny bit of mercury–the EPA warns you to evacuate the area as soon as possible!
But in your mouth…apparently; not a problem!
To protect yourself and loved ones from exposure to this neurotoxin, ensure any fillings you get are made of mercury-free white composite–which most dentists now use–NOT amalgams.
And if you already have amalgams in your mouth, you can have them safely removed by an experienced dentist.
See, when mercury builds up in your body, it can be as toxic as any other heavy metal like aluminum and copper…all of which can lead to neurodegenerative diseases, including dementia.
To add insult to injury, many people routinely inhale the poisons emitted by toxic molds in water-damaged buildings, without ever knowing it.
So your first step should be to ask your doctor for a blood test to detect metals and molds.
And if it turns out you have metal poisoning, a detoxifying therapy called chelation can get rid of the toxic metals out of your body.
The next poison destroying your brain is aluminum.
Most doctors will shrug it off, but research evidence puts them to shame.
Aluminum is one of the most abundant metal elements in our environment, but it’s not essential for life. In fact, it’s been linked to Alzheimer’s disease.
Studies have shown it’s a Neurotoxin, meaning it’s deadly for your brain.
You may have heard the chilling warnings–that cooking in aluminum pots and pans, drinking out of aluminum cans, wrapping leftovers in aluminum foil, or even applying your daily antiperspirant, are all bad for your brain.
And in spite of all the counter-arguments from the mainstream naysayers, aluminum can put you right on the fast track to Alzheimer’s.
In fact, the leading expert in the study of aluminum and the brain has confirmed that the link between aluminum and Alzheimer’s disease is, in fact, overwhelming and compelling…
And that’s none other than Prof. Christopher Exley of Keele University in the U.K.–also known as “Mr. Aluminum“.
He’s been researching the metal for more than 30 years and has published over 100 scientific papers on it.
So, when he says that research undeniably confirmed a link, it’s warrants attention.
Even more compelling, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that each of us ingests 7-9 milligrams of aluminum from our daily routines, every single day.
You can limit your exposure to aluminum by avoiding common sources like antiperspirants, aluminum cookware and utensils, aluminum foil, and heartburn medications, cosmetics, and drugs that contain aluminum.
Even better, you can avoid exposure by steering clear of processed foods–like buttered fish fillets, cake mixes, frozen waffles, baking powder, and bakery items.
And now… this will come to you as a shocker…
You turn on the tap in the morning…and what flows out may look clean and clear!
Turns out, water can appear as pure as a mountain spring…even when it’s loaded with toxins that can wreck your health.
And it doesn’t have to be water in a foreign locale–away from your regular source…
The good H02 coming right from your own kitchen faucet might be tainted with everything from dangerous bacteria that can make you sick…to heavy metals that can turn you into a zombie.
And one of the biggest offenders is COPPER…
It’s not the good organic copper that comes from foods like asparagus, mushrooms, liver, nuts, and chocolate.
This type of copper is processed by your liver, and your body uses the amount it needs and safely stores the rest.
There is the “bad” inorganic copper that can ravage your health, and not the least, mental health.
And the amount of copper flying around in our environment is soaring by the day!
There are two main sources of inorganic copper–drinking water and some of the common vitamin supplements you take everyday!
Copper is used in most of the plumbing pipes, as well as in wires and cables…
And while copper can rapidly transmit information and messages in the commercial world, the story is different when it accumulates in your gray matter.
You see, too much copper in your brain can disrupt its typically lightning-quick signaling, causing cognitive problems. This puts you on the fast lane to Alzheimer’s.
Copper damages your neurological system by triggering inflammation, which leads to the formation of the notorious beta-amyloid plaque.
These plaques destroy your brain cells, thereby setting a conducive environment for Alzheimer’s to set on.
Due to massive copper plumbing, nearly everyone drinks water that flows through copper pipes.
And to make matters worse, about half of all folks over 50 take a vitamin pill that contains inorganic copper.
To limit your exposure to copper, read the label on your vitamin bottle–and if it contains copper, toss it into the trash bin, and…
Replace it with a different variety that doesn’t contain this brain-ravaging metal.
You can also measure the copper in your home’s drinking water. Home tests are available on amazon.com.
Your goal is 0.01 ppm. If your levels are higher, lower them with water filter–a reverse osmosis filter is your best bet.
Chelation therapy can also help pull the heavy metals out of your system. Talk to your integrative physician for advice.
Yet another brain killer has been finding its way into your food with reckless abandon…
And multiple studies have linked it to Alzheimer’s…
Along with a boatload of other diseases like cancer, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, cystic fibrosis, kidney and liver problems, and even autism.
The culprit here is the weed killer Roundup, and its active–and toxic ingredient–glyphosate.
Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) call glyphosate “the most widely used biocide” on the planet.
They found that glyphosate actually alters DNA–specifically, an amino acid called glycine, which is vital for your brain because it helps cells communicate with each other.
But when your cells are forming proteins, they can mistakenly bind to glyphosate, instead of glycine. That changes the structure and function of the proteins, thereby damaging and rendering them dysfunctional.
You see, when glyphosate replaces glycine–particularly in brain cells–those cells can’t function or communicate properly…and that causes memory problems and cognitive decline.
Even worse, scientists have found that even low doses of glyphosate can kill good gut bacteria. That raises your levels of inflammation–another key driver of Alzheimer’s.
Yet, with all this incriminating scientific evidence, the Roundup herbicide is still in active use!
Glyphosate is heavily used in agriculture, purportedly to increase the yield and feed a burgeoning population.
it’s also used by millions of Americans to keep their gardens dandelion-free.
And to make matters worse, you don’t have to be a farmer or backyard gardener to get a “good” dose of the lethal chemical…
Because it drifts from the fields where it’s sprayed…and lands on other nearby crops.
That means this poison is all over the fruits and vegetables you buy at the local grocery stores…
And it’s even rearing its ugly head in some very unlikely places–like honey, ice cream, orange juice, fish, wine, table salt, popcorn, breakfast cereal, and even baby formula.
Glyphosate is inarguably everywhere. So, the best way to avoid it is to switch to an organic diet.
That means choosing only organic produce and grass-fed, organic meat and dairy products.
By law, organic foods can’t be grown using chemical pesticides or GMO seeds.
Buying organic from your local farmer minimizes the cross-contamination that can occur during shipping, packaging, and storage…
Plus, it may cost you a few more bucks, but keeping your brain healthy–and your memory razor-sharp–is priceless.
There you are…
You now know the brain killers you’re sharing space with…most probably because you didn’t know the health risks they pose!
But now, you can do everything within your power to get rid of them and turn to healthy options that protect and revitalize your engine!
Without a sound brain, you lose your independence and, sadly, become a burden to your family…
Because you must stay under constant supervision, and in the worst case scenario…
You can end up in a home for the mentally challenged!
Stay ahead of the game and avoid the unflattering consequences of deteriorating brain power.
You may want to dive deeper into the area of brain health…
