    (CNN)Ashley Judd and her family wanted the world to hear from them how Naomi Judd died. The younger Judd appeared in an interview with Diane Sawyer, which aired on Thursday on "Good Morning America." She said her family had agreed that she share the cause of death of her mother. "She used a weapon," Ashley Judd said. "A firearm. So that's the piece of information we are very uncomfortable sharing." She and her sister Wynonna Judd announced on April 30 that they had lost their mother "to the disease of mental illness." She was 76. Ashley Judd said she and...
  • Regular blueberry consumption may reduce risk of dementia, study finds (A half cup of blueberries a day for 12 weeks: Fasting insulin improved ~20%, some cognitive/verbal issues decreased ~80%)

    Researchers led by UC's Robert Krikorian, Ph.D., found that adding blueberries to the daily diets of certain middle-aged populations may lower the chances of developing late-life dementia. Krikorian explained that about 50% of individuals in the U.S. develop insulin resistance, commonly referred to as prediabetes, around middle age. Prediabetes has been shown to be a factor in chronic diseases, he said. "We had observed cognitive benefits with blueberries in prior studies with older adults and thought they might be effective in younger individuals with insulin resistance," said Krikorian. "Alzheimer's disease, like all chronic diseases of aging, develops over a period...

    Joe Biden on Wednesday traveled to Illinois to deliver remarks on inflation and food supply shortages. Biden addressed the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers 40th annual conference at McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago after visiting a family farm in Kankakee, Illinois. Joe Biden began shouting out of blue (dementia) about food shortages caused by Democrat lockdowns during the Covid pandemic. Apparently Biden forgot there is also a food shortage happening under his administration. “Remember those long lines you’d see on the television – people lining up in all kinds of vehicles just to get a box of food in...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden on Tuesday warned voters unhappy with soaring inflation and his stalled domestic agenda against turning power over to “ultra-MAGA” Republicans in the midterm elections as he increasingly tries to cast former President Donald Trump and his adherents as a political foil. Speaking Tuesday, Biden, who ran for office aiming to heal the nation’s divisions, said, “I never expected the ultra-MAGA Republicans who seem to control the Republican Party now to have been able to control the Republican Party. I never anticipated that happening.”
  • Novel heart ultrasound measures can be used to predict risk of developing dementia (Detecting atrial myopathy identifies up to 2X higher dementia risk)

    Published in JAMA, research from the University of Minnesota assessed if there is a link between heart health and dementia. Using echocardiography—visual ultrasound of the heart—the research team was able to identify novel measures that are linked to a higher dementia risk. "Atrial myopathy, a condition characterized by abnormal left atrial function and size, is an independent risk factor for dementia," said Dr. Lin Yee Chen, and principal investigator. "In this community-based cohort study, lower left atrial function was associated with higher risk of dementia." The study observed a cohort of 4,096 participants with an average age of 35 years....
  • ‘Stressed’ Cells Offer Clues to Eliminating Build-up of Toxic Proteins in Dementia (Stress is good for you)

    Neuroscience News ^ | 5/6/2022 | University of Cambridge
    It’s often said that a little stress can be good for you. Now scientists have shown that the same may be true for cells, uncovering a newly-discovered mechanism that might help prevent the build-up of tangles of proteins commonly seen in dementia. A characteristic of diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s—collectively known as neurodegenerative diseases—is the build-up of misfolded proteins. These proteins, such as amyloid and tau in Alzheimer’s disease, form ‘aggregates’ that can cause irreversible damage to nerve cells in the brain. Protein folding is a normal process in the body, and in healthy individuals, cells carry out a...

  • Sodium selenate: A promising treatment for dementia (Selenium from vitamin formulas breaks down tau protein)

    A study has found a promising new treatment for patients with behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia, the second most common form of dementia in the under 60s—resulting in a stabilizing of what would normally be escalating behavioral issues, and a slowing of brain shrinkage due to the disease. It is the second clinical trial to show that the drug, sodium selenate, may slow cognitive decline and neurodegenerative damage that is the hallmark of many dementias including Alzheimer's Disease. Behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD) is a rapidly progressing destructive disease and can occur in people as young as 35 years of age....

    Episode reminiscent of Hillary Clinton's collapse during failed 2016 campaign Citizens expressed concern Tuesday after footage emerged of a "visibly shaken" Elizabeth Warren clinging to a staffer's hand for dear life while attempting to walk several yards to a waiting vehicle. Even with the staffer's assistance, the Democratic lawmaker nearly stumbled on several occasions as reporters shouted questions about abortion. "Does she have Parkinson's or something?" a concerned American asked the Washington Free Beacon after viewing the footage of Warren. "Why does she need a staffer to hold her hand while walking?" The voting public deserves an honest answer. Warren,...

    (Reuters) -U.S. President Joe Biden on Wednesday will address his efforts to reduce the nation's budget deficit, noting that it is expected to fall for the second straight year amid a recovering economy and waning emergency spending, according to the White House. Biden and his fellow Democrats have come under fire from Republicans for a historic rise in inflation that some critics say stems from overspending in Washington amid the COVID-19 pandemic as well as global supply constraints. He will discuss "his commitment to reducing the deficit going forward while making critical investments to boost the capacity of our economy...

    Think twice before popping these pills that shrink your brain, kill your memory and put you in the path of a deadly disease with no cure. One person made an astonishing recovery from severe dementia after quitting multiple meds – including over-the-counter products. Be very careful. Story at-a-glance Anticholinergic drugs block acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that performs important functions in your brain and peripheral and central nervous systems In your brain, acetylcholine plays a key role in attention, concentration, memory formation and consolidation, which is why anticholinergic drugs can cause symptoms identical to dementia Research assessing effects of anticholinergics found statistically...

'He sees literally everyone, including those inside the Russian security services and even inside his close inner circle, to be "traitors"', he said. Putin may be keeping those closest to him unaware of his health...

    First lady Jill Biden expressed frustration that Kamala Harris was the top choice for vice president, according to an upcoming book from two New York Times reporters. An excerpt from Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns' forthcoming book, "This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America's Future," describes the vice presidential nomination process during Joe Biden's 2020 campaign. "'There are millions of people in the United States,' she began. ‘Why,’ she asked, ‘do we have to choose the one who attacked Joe,'" the authors wrote of a conversation Jill Biden had after she learned Harris became a leading...

    SEATTLE (AP) — With a backdrop of flowering trees, it was a setting fit for the signing of major environmental legislation. Even Seattle’s notorious clouds parted as President Joe Biden stepped up to speak Friday. But when he sat down at a small desk with the presidential seal that had been set up for the occasion, there was no new law to sign, just an executive order directing federal officials to keep better track of trees in national forests. The gap between the scale of the global warming crisis and the president’s initiatives seemed wider than ever on Earth Day....

    President Joe Biden criticized 'ugly' Republicans for targeting Disney and said the GOP has been taken over by the 'far right' in his speeches at two Democratic fundraisers on the West Coast on Thursday. 'This is not your father's Republican Party,' Biden said Thursday afternoon at a high-dollar fundraiser at the Portland Yacht Club, co-hosted by The New Republic's owner and editor Win McCormack and his political consultant wife, Carol Butler.

    President Biden on Thursday confused his administration’s effort to restore a mass transit mask mandate with an expiring policy used to turn away most illegal immigrants when a reporter asked about the Title 42 border measure. Biden’s press team once again had to issue a written statement afterwards that claimed the president misspoke and meant to comment only about masks. “I want to clarify that, in comments at the conclusion of my remarks this morning, I was referring to the CDC’s mask mandate and there is no Department of Justice action on Title 42,” read the statement, attributed to Biden.
