  • Things that make you go HMM. Why oh why would Chelsea Clinton share a tweet about dementia?

    Since her mother lost the election, Chelsea has been posting very infrequently to Twitter and most of her tweets are more informative than personal. This one though she shared this morning makes one wonder what she was thinking when she posted it because let’s be honest, any Hillary detractor is going to have one thought and one thought only when they read this: Ok, so it’s totally snarky (and c’mon, you’re on Twitchy so what do you expect) but why would Chelsea be interested in dementia research? Hrm. Let’s think for a minute … Ouch! And there ya’ go …...

    Although the U.S. Justice Department didn't end up pursuing criminal charges against Hillary Clinton, she's still having to answer questions about her private email server. And it's not just on the campaign trail — it's in court. Clinton's attorneys submitted on her behalf answers to 23 of the 25 questions posed to her by Judicial Watch as part of its Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against Clinton. Judicial Watch is a "conservative, non-partisan" watchdog organization. She signed and submitted her answers under penalty of perjury on Monday. And Thursday, Judicial Watch released Clinton's responses. Many of the responses included the...

    Dear FReeper Family, I, my family and I, have reached an impasse. We live in Alabama, and my mother and my only sibling, a younger sister, and her family live in Virginia, very near to Mama. Unfortunately, I find myself needing legal counsel in order to determine how best to take care of Mama.

    WEDNESDAY, Aug. 17, 2016 (HealthDay News) — Taking calcium supplements with the hope of keeping osteoporosis at bay may raise an older woman's risk of dementia, a new study suggests. And that seems particularly true if a woman has already sustained an event causing poor blood flow to the brain (cerebrovascular disease), such as from a stroke, researchers said. The study can't prove cause-and-effect. However, dementia risk was seven times higher in female stroke survivors who took calcium supplements, compared to women with a history of stroke who didn't use the supplements, the findings showed. The risk of dementia also...

    HILLARY CLINTON is suffering from advanced vascular dementia and has just one year to live, according to shock new medical claims. The latest controversial claims purportedly come from a professor at a US medical school, who has posted them anonymously online. In a detailed 10 minute YouTube video, using brain scans, disputed medical records and slow motion clips of Mrs Clinton, the "professor" - who claims to have taught at three medical institutions - sets out the case. "Hillary Clinton is running a campaign for president knowing that she will die." it alleges. "Patients who are diagnosed with vascular dementia...

    A revolutionary drug that could stop people from ever developing Alzheimer’s disease has been unveiled by scientists. Trials have produced ‘unprecedented’ results and the medicine has been hailed as a potential game-changer in the fight against the cruel disease. In future, healthy pensioners could be prescribed the drug to ward off dementia, in much the same way as statins are given today to those at risk of heart attacks. One British expert described the drug, which is about to be tested in hospitals around the UK, as the best yet, others called it ‘ingenious’ work with ‘tantalising’ results.And a US...

We had the Mena, Arkansas scandals when her husband, Bubba, otherwise known as William Jefferson Clinton, was Attorney General and then Governor.

    First she confusingly said that she’s going to raise taxes on the middle class. And while we know that’s REALLY what she’s going to do, of course that isn’t what she meant to say. Even scarier, Hillary totally missed the slip up and continued speaking. Then, only a few days later, Hillary referred to Donald Trump as her husband. Freudian slip? Maybe, but not likely. The more likely answer is that she was genuinely confused. And what this may be are long-lasting symptoms stemming from a concussion and blood clot, according to a neurologist, which suggest Clinton is suffering from...

Former President Jimmy Carter thinks he knows how the Nazarene would approach two hot-button issues of today. “I believe Jesus would approve of gay marriage,” Carter said this week in an interview with HuffPost Live. And he believes Jesus would approve abortion in the cases of rape and incest. Carter told interviewer Marc Lamont Hill, “I never have run across any really serious conflicts between my political obligations and my religious faith.” When Hill...

"He is a faker," she said of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, going point by point, as if presenting a legal brief. "He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego. ... How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? The press seems to be very gentle with him on that."

    Marijuana compound removes toxic Alzheimer's protein from the brain An active compound in marijuana called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) has been found to promote the removal of toxic clumps of amyloid beta protein in the brain, which are thought to kickstart the progression of Alzheimer's disease. The finding supports the results of previous studies that found evidence of the protective effects of cannabinoids, including THC, on patients with neurodegenerative disease. "Although other studies have offered evidence that cannabinoids might be neuroprotective against the symptoms of Alzheimer's, we believe our study is the first to demonstrate that cannabinoids affect both inflammation and amyloid...

    Jimmy Carter said Monday that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump had tapped into "inherent racism" to bolster his candidacy. In an interview with The New York Times, Carter, the 39th president, also said Trump violated "basic human rights" by labeling Mexican and Muslim immigrants as criminals and terrorists. "When you single out any particular group of people for secondary citizenship status, that's a violation of basic human rights," Carter said. The 91-year-old Carter won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002 for promoting human rights across the globe through his work with the Carter Center. Carter, the oldest living US...

    But it does revolve around the conceit that the 40th president had no knowledge of where he was or what he was doing throughout his entire second term. The protagonist is Frank Corden, a low-level White House aide with a sweetly idealized view of American democracy. The first clues that Reagan is not in his right mind come early on: As Frank prepares coffee for Reagan re-election staffers, he overhears Treasury Secretary Don Regan (depicted as a stern, mentor-like figure) in a heated phone conversation with Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger (cartoonishly abusive, he's described as "all Brylcreem and forehead...

Though you may have never heard of this class of drug, you've certainly heard of the medications themselves, including Benadryl, Demerol, Dimetapp, Dramamine, Unisom and VESIcare. They are sold over the counter and by prescription as sleep aids and for chronic diseases including hypertension, cardiovascular disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The new study is the first to examine the physical changes that...

The herpes virus - the type which causes cold sores - and chlamydia bacteria are named as the major culprits, as well as a type of corkscrew-shaped bacteria called spirochaete. “There is incontrovertible evidence that Alzheimer’s Disease has...

"When Cassius Clay joined the Black Muslims and started calling himself Cassius X he became a champion of Racial Segregation and that is what we are fighting against. I think perhaps Cassius should spend more time proving his boxing skill and do less talking," Martin Luther King said. How "Islamophobic" of King.

    The sickness spread at funerals. The Fore people, a once-isolated tribe in eastern Papua New Guinea, had a long-standing tradition of mortuary feasts — eating the dead from their own community at funerals. Men consumed the flesh of their deceased relatives, while women and children ate the brain. It was an expression of respect for the lost loved ones, but the practice wreaked havoc on the communities they left behind. That’s because a deadly molecule that lives in brains was spreading to the women who ate them, causing a horrible degenerative illness called “kuru” that at one point killed 2...

    Researchers found that people are developing dementia a decade earlier than they were 20 years ago, possibly due to factors such as pollution and insecticides, as reported by The Columbus Dispatch. The study compared data from 21 Western countries between 1989 and 2010 and found that the disease is more commonly diagnosed in people in their late 40s, in addition to climbing death rates. The research suggest the issue is particularly severe in the United States. Study authors say neurological deaths in men over the age of 75 have nearly tripled, and have risen more than five-fold in women. Scientists...

This was for a new two-part series on dental health for the BBC, and what we discovered was truly eye-opening, with implications not just for me, but for all of us. My wife was anything but keen on the no-brushing experiment and there was a lot less kissing during that fortnight. And she was...
