      But I dunno if anything really can be done.  It's a difficult disease with several different causes, from what I've read;  and it's one that hits almost half of the population over age 80, if the stats I found are correct.

      Research suggests the following:

      Don't use aluminium kettles, teapots, pots or pans.  Aluminium gets into your system and has been implicated in alzheimers.

      Drink three to five cups of coffee a day. A study in 2009 showed that can reduce the risk of developing Alzheimers by 60 to 65%.

      Take exercise that requires you to coordinate thought and movement - e.g. dancing or dance aerobics.  Exercising the mind alone or the body alone haven't been shown to offer benefits - you need to do something that exercises both at the same time.

    I would like to let you know what lead me to the E- Cigarette, Over 5 million Americans now have Alzheimer’s, and that Number is expected to grow to over 14 million by 2050  currently , 10 percent  Of Americans over the age 65 and nearly half of those 85 have the disease. (My mother lived 12 year with it) IT worried me a bit so I look at some of work

    Of the German psychiatrist who it name after, The research found can help us but no one seem

    To want us to know PLEASE LOOK IT UP YOURSELF NICOTINE & ALZHEIMER”S {Sadly, there seems to be Little coordinated effort to organize program to actually prevent  Alzheimer’s And other brain diseases}. DR. Alzheimer work with a form of vitamin B3 call Niacinamide .  But only recently has there been research finding that memory loss  of Alzheimer’s  can actually be restored Specifically, it’s been discovered that nicotinamide  ( another term for niacinamide, an alkaline form of NIACIN or vitamin  B3 ) can restore the memory loss cause by this dreadful disease 

    It is said Nicotine stimulate the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine,

    This is needed primarily to facilitate the transmission of nerve impulses   

    DR. David Williams  Montrose RD, Potomac MD 

    Has been my health guy for many year’s just published in his report (The only way to reverse Alzheimer's  )  He stated   cigarette smokers are 50% percent less likely to develop Alzheimer’s than nonsmokers . Niacin, which is also called nicotinc acid , is close cousin of NICOTINE .Which is contained in cigarettes . Both stimulate the production of the neurotransmitter acetycholine, which is need primarily to facilitate the transmission of nerve impulses  . Study in Chicago with 815 people without the disease after four years those with the lowest niacin intake (an average of 12.6 mg per day) were 80 percent more likely to be diagnosed with ALZHEIMER”S than the ones with (22.4 mg per day

    P.S Smoking will kill you as all of us know! But now there way to get NICOTINE BY VAIPOR with E-CIGARETTE you gets only the nicotine (it’s also and aid to help people cut down or quit) none of the thousand of other bad stuff is in it .

    The impact of hypertension and nicotine on the size of ruptured intracranial aneurysms

                           Research paper

    ·                         Revised 13 January 2010

    ·                         Accepted 13 March 2010

    ·                         Published Online First 28 July 2010


    Background The goal of the study was to analyse retrospectively the impact of risk factors for subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) on the size of ruptured intracranial aneurysms in order to identify variables that might influence the discrepancy between average sizes of ruptured and unruptured aneurysms.

    Methods The records and angiographies of 373 patients treated at our centre due to aneurysmal SAH between 2004 and December 2008 were retrospectively analysed. Modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors for SAH were correlated with exact measurement of aneurysm size using three-dimensional rotational digital subtraction angiographies (3D-DSA).

    Results Average maximum aneurysm diameter in patients with combined history of hypertension and cigarette smoking was 5.47±3.22 mm (95% CI 4.71 to 6.24); thus, significantly smaller (p<0.001) than in patients with hypertension only (6.27±3.28 mm, 95% CI 5.75 to 6.78), with cigarette smoking only (7.61±4.29 mm, 95% CI 6.43 to 8.79) and patients with no history for risk factors (8.08±4.73 mm, 95% CI 6.96 to 9.21). Odds ratio (OR) for aneurysm size less than 7 mm in patients with combined hypertension and cigarette smoking was 3.63 (95% CI 1.78 to 7.42), 3.09 (95% CI 1.95 to 4.92) in patients with hypertension only and 1.02 (95% CI 0.64 to 1.62) in patients with cigarette smoking only.

    Conclusions The present analysis demonstrates a distinct correlation between hypertension, smoking and the size of ruptured aneurysms in SAH patients. Arterial hypertension and cigarette smoking appear to destabilise cerebral aneurysms' growth. Our data strongly suggest that these factors should also be considered when treatment indications for small unruptured aneurysms are discussed.

    Nicotine BYPA  is a revolutionary new nicotine delivery system that provides a cleaner alternative to traditional cigarette smoking. With traditional cigarettes, the smoker is forced to inhale thousands of unwanted chemicals and carcinogens along with the nicotine. Smoke BYPA provides an authentic smoking experience without the many chemicals produced through burning tobacco.

    The Nicotine BYPA electronic cigarette delivers only the nicotine. No tar... No carbon monoxide... No waste... No ash. Feel refreshed yet?  You should, because the "Green" in Smoke BYPA means that the nicotine is delivered in a cleaner and odorless vapor. That's because Nicotine BYPA doesn't burn the nicotine like yesterday's cigarettes... instead it vaporizes it!

    How does it do that?  Well... it's electric.  That's right... an e-cigarette!  We have e-mail, e-shopping, e-news, e-phones, e-cameras... isn't it time we moved on to e-cigarettes? Now you can throw that lighter away along with the rest of your old-fashioned cigarettes. With Smoke BYPA , there is no need for a lighter... just pull it out and start puffing! You will immediately enjoy the same nicotine, for a fraction of the price!

    Vapor Nicotine BYPA is not only easy on your lungs, it is also easy on your wallet. In fact, vapor Nicotine BYPA will save you up to 75% on your cigarette expenses. How much is that? Use our savings calculator to see just how much money you can save.

    What is vapor Nicotine BYPA ?  It's an electric cigarette which contains the nicotine you want, and leaves out much of what you don't want. It costs a whole lot less than traditional cigarettes and does not leave any odor behind on your breath, hands, or clothes. It does not cause any pollution, and can be smoked almost anywhere - even in most No Smoking Areas. It is by far cleaner for the environment.  Oh, and it comes in eight flavors including Tobacco, Tobacco M, Menthol, Coffee, Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry and Apple.
