Study links Alzheimer's disease with pesticide DDT

Message  gerardM le Mer 29 Jan - 19:20

Hi everyone,

-> Study links Alzheimer's disease with pesticide DDT
A new study suggests the connection between Alzheimer's in elderly adults and the pesticide DDT might be a strong one. Researchers at Emory University School of Medicine studied 86 people with Alzheimer's and 79 without.

Hi Gérard, everyone

The study says Alzheimer's disease cases are set to increase threefold over the next four decades.


It 's frightening isn't ?

Let's have an active social life, a healthy diet and physical exercises. Will it be enough ?

Gérard
This morning I  read "Le quotidien du médecin" because there was an article about the impact of DDT and DDE (DDE comes from DDT) on Alzheimer's disease
http://www.lequotidiendumedecin.fr/specialites/neurologie/un-risque-de-maladie-d-alzheimer-augmente-chez-les-plus-de-60-ans?ku=y85yxCav-wAaA-v8z6-ByA7-9vAa6AzCv8yz
They concluded with a might
http://www.forbes.com/sites/alicegwalton/2014/01/28/is-the-pesticide-ddt-linked-to-alzheimers-disease/

A new study out in JAMA Neurology suggests that higher levels of the pesticide DDT might be linked to increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease. The keyword here is might, however, since the study was quite small and the connection not clear-cut.


The keyword is might because some samples from patients with Alzheimer’s had low DDE level and sound patients  had high DDE level. Nothing is really clear-cut. What is important is to demonstrate the importance of  the Environmental causes of Alzheimer's disease.
healthy food and environment are equally important then.

Thanks for your additional links Muriel.

Unfortunately, when I was Young DDT was a common insecticide that was used Sad

You are a polyglot, you walk a lot, you are a man (women are more likely to get Alzheimer's disease.)
No problem for you.

Hi everyone,

What about this article from Scientifc American?

-> How to Solve Global Warming: It's the Energy Supply
Carbon storage has to expand rapidly, or coal burning has to cease, if the world is to avoid dangerous climate change

The world is on track for dangerous climate change, having nearly lost room for further pollution in the mix of gases that make up the atmosphere. Despite a rise in clean, renewable energy supplies in certain countries, and a partial shift from coal to natural gas in others, global greenhouse gas pollution continues to rise—and at an increasing pace in the most recent years.

Rémy I have found the link
http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jul/15/britains-first-energy-positive-house-opens-in-wales

The modest three-bedroom house built in just 16 weeks on an industrial estate outside Bridgend in Wales cost just £125,000 to build and, said its Cardiff University designers, will let occupants use the sun to pay the rent.
It's good isn't it ?
