New Theory in dementia research: could fructose trigger Alzheimer’s?

The fact that fructose hardly raises blood glucose levels due to its low glycemic index and is largely metabolized independently of insulin has led to the assumption in the past that it has a beneficial effect on health. New studies prove that fructose is less beneficial than previously thought.

Highly processed foods and neuronal health: is there also a link with other neurodegenerative diseases such as multiple sclerosis?

Recently, we reported on "Knowledge stops dementia" about (ultra)processed food, also known as fast food, and the associated risk to [...]

Step by step to dementia prevention – those who walk daily protect their brains

By |2023-03-21T14:11:50+01:0022. February 2023|Categories: causes, exercise, prevention|

A rolling stone gathers no moss. This simple saying also hits the nail on the head when it comes to dementia prevention. This is now also confirmed by a large number of scientific studies. New findings show that there is far more leeway in the recommendations for daily exercise routines than previously assumed.

KsD up to date: messages and news from all over the world

By |2023-03-21T14:11:50+01:0025. January 2023|Categories: causes, forms of treatment, prevention|

Since 2022 the team of the project "Knowledge stops Dementia" started to refer on a regular base to current contributions from the world wide web which have a close relation to our core topic, the early detection of individual risk factors and thus the lifestyle-oriented and self-responsible prevention and treatment of dementia-related diseases. The opinions expressed in the following articles should serve as a stimulus for critical discussion. They do not necessarily correspond to the positions we hold, but in all cases, they enrich the basis for discussion. Occasionally, we also refer to current freely available studies at the end – please make up your own mind! 

How environmental toxins can affect the human brain and increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease

By |2023-03-21T14:11:50+01:009. November 2022|Categories: causes, prevention, toxin reduction|

The link between exposure to environmental pollutants and Alzheimer's disease, although not fully proven, has been documented in numerous scientific studies for years. People who are exposed to pollutants and have higher blood levels of toxic and harmful substances have a higher risk of developing dementia.

New focus in dementia research: Ultra-processed foods as risk factor 

By |2023-03-21T14:11:51+01:0012. October 2022|Categories: causes, micronutrient deficiencies, nutrition, prevention, uncategorized|

Nutrition-related dementia research has generated a flood of promising data in recent years, focusing on the amount of certain nutrients or ingredients in the diet. More recently, many people's diets have changed, and researchers are beginning to focus on a different component of the diet: Ultra-processed foods, also known as fast foods.

A study on DDT proves: Pesticides are a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease

The risk for developing the sporadic late-onset form of Alzheimer's disease is attributable to an interaction of genetic and environmental factors. Among the genetic factors, it is well known that the presence of the APOE4 gene considerably increases the risk of developing the disease. Among environmental risk factors, lifestyle measures (such as diet, sleep quality, physical activity, and mental training) and exposure to toxic agents  have great importance for prevention, since they can be modified both at the individual level and through collective health policies. Despite its relevance, the effect of exposure to toxins has not been properly studied: the number of articles published on this subject is limited, and occur mostly in journals on environment and toxins rather than in medical journals.

Coconut Oil for Alzheimer’s Prevention and Therapy: Hype or Hope?

By |2023-03-21T14:11:51+01:008. June 2022|Categories: causes, nutrition, prevention|

The coconut palm (cocos nucifera), also known as the "tree of life," provides many valuable foods - most famously coconut oil. In recent years, global consumption of coconut oil has boomed due to its promised health benefits.  But does the consumption of coconut oil really bring health benefits or does it rather do harm? 

LOGI plus nutrition for the prevention of Alzheimer dementia

By |2023-03-21T14:11:51+01:0011. May 2022|Categories: causes, nutrition, prevention|

There is a diet that for many years has already achieved the best results in the fight against the common ailments of civilization: the LOGI method. Whether in the prevention or treatment of metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, lipid metabolism disorders such as high triglycerides and low HDL cholesterol, whether for the follow-up of non-alcoholic fatty liver, against high blood pressure, polycystic ovarian syndrome or simply "just" to stay in shape - with the help of the LOGI method it is all possible.
