AD Research Done Linking It To Nitrates and Nitrites?

Is anyone Familiar with any Recent research that is being done that links Alzheimer's Disease/demenia with the use of nitrites and nitrates. They are converted in our system to nitrosamine compounds and used to produce diabetes in mice animal studies.

Dr Suzanne de la Monte,MD (recently appeared on Dr OZ show -April 7, 2011) a neuropathologest from Rhode Island found in 2009 by accident that nitrites and nitrates used to preserve and color food--irritates the liver so that it produces toxin -lipids(fat) that is able to cross the blood--brain barrier and destroy neuron cells in the brain. The brain is 80% fats.

As most of us know brain scans of AD brain patients show that parts of the brain are literally missing.

Nitrites and nitrates are red Dye 2 and are used in many processed foods for coloring also for curing, preserving meats --smoked meats like bacon , deli smoked turkey,--- some beers--- white foods like sugar, flour, pasta, rice, etc, and alot of processed cereals.

Nitrites and nitrates are in many---many foods along with being in ground water, fertilizers and even gasoline.

The B1 vitamin that I take daily in my B complex capsule is Thamine hydronitrate. It's also in some simple foods like Minute Made Rice.

A former US Surgeon General an MD was on the same Dr Oz show said, he avoids eating anything that contains nitrites or nitrates.

Although the show was on April 7, 2011 it did not go into alot of detail about how to avoid the substances.

Re: AD Research Done Linking It To Nitrates and Nitrites?

Thank you for this hopeful and informative information.

I have not seen any recent research done on controlling Alzheimer's. But, am glad medical professionals are working on it.

I do know that there is alot of nitrates in all our foods except the organic stuff.

Thanks for responding.

I know people are more concerned with their very close relative that has AD with all the associated present problems

But, it does appear that folks are going to have to change their lifesyle including diet to prevent the disease.

I have been married almost 56 years and it's certainly not easy being a care giver 24/7.

God Bless---Harry

Re: AD Research Done Linking It To Nitrates and Nitrites?

In today's world these substances are almost impossible to avoid. They are even in the fresh veggies and fruits and animal products because of the extensive use of fertilizer and if you don't add the fertilizers today they are already in the growing soil. Yes, and in the water as well. They have been blamed for every ailment under the sun but because nothing has been directly linked. There is more we don't know about the body and how it uses individual substances than we know.

I remember a time when it was "known" that cancer was all caused by such agents, and yes these were one of them. Now we know that at least some cancers are caused by viruses. Stomach ulcers were stress and what we ate... but wait they are at least to some extent bacterial.

We do need more research.... good science and not just guesses and accidents.

Love, deb
