    Former President Donald Trump on the campaign trail in Iowa Thursday expressed sympathy for President Joe Biden upon learning that he fell after delivering the commencement speech at the Air Force Academy. “He actually fell down? Well I hope he wasn’t hurt. I hope he wasn’t hurt,” Trump said after being told. He then recalled his own concerns of falling after the delivering a commencement speech at the West Point in 2021.

  • How excessive salt consumption is linked to cognitive disorders and high blood pressure (Losartan an ARB, reverses brain protein issue)

    05/30/2023 2:09:37 PM PDT · by ConservativeMind · 14 replies
    Dementia is defined as the loss of cognitive functioning—including thinking, remembering, and reasoning. Currently, the treatment satisfaction for dementia is among the lowest and no drug therapy is available to cure the disease. Cognitive impairment has been linked to the consumption of excess table salt. The involvement of angiotensin II (Ang II)—a hormone that plays a key role in regulating blood pressure and fluid balance—and its receptor "AT1," as well as that of the physiologically important lipid molecule prostaglandin E2 PGE2 and its receptor "EP1" in hypertension and neurotoxicity is well-recognized). To this end, a recent study evaluated the aspects...
  • Is 80-year-old Joe Biden really fit for four more years? After a first term marked by gaffes and falls, doctors tell DailyMail.com they fear for health of President who has suffered two brain aneurysms and has a heart issue - raises his risk of dementia

    Medical experts have raised concerns about whether President Joe Biden is fit to serve another term after the 80-year-old officially launched his reelection campaign. They fear Biden, who would be 86 at the end of a second stint in the White House, is already showing signs of 'cognitive impairment' and that the stress of another presidency could deteriorate his condition further and raise the risk of an on-screen accident. The President's first term has been marked by a series of high-profile gaffes, falls and visible signs of disorientation - including stumbling up the steps of Air Force One and falling...

    At a speech before the pro-abortion Emily's List, President Joe Biden announced he would award the Medal of Freedom to Rep. Nancy Pelosi "for her pivotal role in assisting President Roosevelt rescue the economy in the Great Depression." What's even more amazing is that Pelosi was born in 1940 and was only five years old when Roosevelt died. This latest Biden Gaffe inspired former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to point out that "he's 80 years old. His age is an issue, and people have every right to consider it when considering whether to reelect him. Polls show that only...

    People who experience a type of stroke linked with nearly half of all dementias could be treated for the first time by repurposing two cheap and common drugs, a trial shows. Researchers found that isosorbide mononitrate and cilostazol, which are already used to treat other heart and circulatory diseases, can safely improve the debilitating outcomes people experience after lacunar stroke. The two drugs, which were found to be even more effective when used in combination. Lacunar strokes affect at least 35,000 people in the UK each year. They are caused by cerebral small vessel disease, where small blood vessels deep...

  • Early data suggest the Bacillus Calmette-Guérin vaccine could have a protective effect against Alzheimer's

    05/21/2023 9:18:25 PM PDT · by ConservativeMind · 1 replies
    The Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccine—which prevents tuberculosis—offers multiple beneficial effects, and it's currently a recommended therapy for non–muscle-invasive bladder cancer. In a new study, treatment with the BCG vaccine was associated with a reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. Although previous research has suggested a link between the BCG vaccine and a lower risk of dementia, studies were limited by size, study design, or analytical methods. To conduct a more robust study, Marc Weinberg, MD, Ph.D., and colleagues followed 6,467 individuals for up to 15 years after they were diagnosed with non–muscle-invasive bladder cancer. The group included 3,388...

    NASHUA, N.H. — Top Democrats are scrambling for ways to avoid a catastrophe in New Hampshire in which Joe Biden may not appear on the primary ballot, ceding the first unofficial contest of 2024 to a fringe candidate. The bizarre predicament is one of the president’s own making, after he pushed for changes to the party’s presidential nominating calendar that stripped the Granite State of its first-in-the-nation primary. The move was designed to reward South Carolina, which catapulted Biden to the nomination in 2020. But there’s a state law requiring New Hampshire’s contest be held a week before any others,...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) is not done convalescing after being laid out for over three months with an alleged bad case of the shingles. Nevertheless, after missing 91 votes, she made her return this week so that her Democratic colleagues can resume pushing their agenda. The sickly 89-year-old former mayor of San Francisco was put into a wheelchair outside the Senate Wednesday, then carted inside. "Where am I going?" she asked her handlers wearily, reported the Huffington Post.

    Supplementing GlyNAC—a combination of glycine and N-acetylcysteine as precursors of the natural antioxidant glutathione—improved or reversed age-associated cognitive decline in old mice and improved multiple associated defects in the aging brain. Sekhar and his team worked with three groups of mice. Two groups were aged naturally side-by-side until they were 90 weeks old, which is similar to a 70-year-old person. At 90 weeks of age, both groups of old mice were evaluated for their cognitive abilities, such as remembering the correct route in a maze that leads to a food reward. These results were compared to those of young mice,...

    A recent phase three study conducted by Eli Lilly examined the safety and efficacy of the study drug donanemab in participants with early Alzheimer's disease (AD). The pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly announced in a press release on May 3, 2023, that a clinical trial of the experimental Alzheimer's drug, donanemab, showed it could significantly slow the progress of cognitive decline, allowing patients increased independence. The drugmaker's announcement revealed that the drug succeeded in halting early AD progression in nearly half of the participants, slowing cognitive decline rates by 35% compared to control participants. Donanemab is an antibody that targets protein...

    WASHINGTON — President Biden avoided questions from reporters Friday by falsely announcing a “major press conference” — before ducking out to grab lunch at a local taqueria ahead of a one-on-one interview with MSNBC. “We’ve got a lot of work to do and I’m doing a major press conference this afternoon,” Biden told reporters at a White House meeting with cabinet secretaries. “So I love you all, but I’d like to ask you to leave so we can get down to business.” Biden’s staff later told the press corps the president misspoke, possibly thinking of an interview with MSNBC “11th...

    Recent research suggests a potential link between the diabetes drug pioglitazone and a reduced risk of dementia in people with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes. The study, led by Dr. Eosu Kim from Yonsei University, analyzed data from 91,218 participants over an average of 10 years, showing that those taking pioglitazone were 16% less likely to develop dementia. This percentage rose to 37% in those taking the drug for four years. The effect was more pronounced in people with a history of ischemic heart disease or stroke. A study in the Neurology journal suggests that the diabetes drug pioglitazone may...

    The White House recently defended President Joe Biden's notes and prepared questions when calling on reporters during a press conference. Biden was spotted holding a pocket card with the picture, name, outlet and potential query of a reporter during a Wednesday news conference with the South Korean president. The White House faced some tough questions after admitting it was normal for the president to get reporters questions and topics before a press conference but some said there's a big difference between being briefed on topics and a note card with a reporter's name, the organization and the exact question being...

    Dementia Joe Biden made it official yesterday that he wants to “finish the job.” Maybe he should learn how to finish a sentence first. The announcement was pre-recorded, for obvious reasons. According to the latest NBC poll, 70% of Americans don’t want Brandon to run again – 70%! That includes a majority of Democrats. Only 26% in the poll want him back on the ballot at age 82. Even Donald Trump has 35% rooting for him to run next year. Rather than releasing that statement – in fact a campaign ad – perhaps Brandon should have put out a videotape...

    The homeowner who allegedly shot a black teen in the head after he mistakenly rang his doorbell in Kansas City was hit with two felony counts on Monday as prosecutors said he could spend the rest of his life in jail. Andrew D. Lester, 85, was charged with assault in the first degree and armed criminal action for the shooting of 16-year-old Ralph Yarl in a crime that had a “racial component,” according to the Clay County Prosecutor Office. Lester was not immediately arrested on Monday evening. A bond of $200,000 was set for the suspect.......
