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.
