A few years ago I would have thought it unlikely, but beets have risen close to the top of the superfood hit parade.

It's a common health condition affecting one in six Americans. If you’re over age 65, the incidence rises to one in four. And after age 75, half of us suffer from a loss of this important faculty. The problem I’m talking about is hearing loss. In itself, it’s a nuisance – and can even be [...]

To Understand Alzheimer’s You Need to Look Outside the Brain

With brain diseases like Alzheimer's, maybe it's time to start thinking outside the box. While the brain is the obvious go-to place to look for the cause, it's not the only body part to consider. There's another organ that plays a central role in brain health. In July, several new studies were presented at the [...]

You don’t need me to tell you that loud noise and loud music can destroy your hearing. That’s very well-known. But just as worrying – you have another body part that is vulnerable to damage from these sounds. Your brain. According to researchers at the University of Southern California (USC), two types of damage occur [...]

Researchers have discovered that drinking a particular brain-boosting beverage can restore your depleted intellectual abilities, improve your mental focus, banish fuzzy cognition and even change the way your neurons fire off signals to each other.

A few weeks ago (Issue #534) I wrote about the role infections play in Alzheimer’s disease. Much of the focus of that article was on herpes viruses.
