Neurologist and author, David Perlmutter, claims that gluten causes Alzheimer's. Can someone provide journal references on research that proves this?

Neurologist and author, David Perlmutter, claims that gluten causes Alzheimer's. Can someone provide journal references on research that proves this?

Fully disagree: There is NO solid evidence anywhere that gluten causes Alzheimer's disease, and there is NO relationship with Celiac disease and dementia, but Celiac disease does cause a Peripheral Small Fibre Neuropathy. We have some anecdotal cases of gluten sensitivity affecting MS indirectly, and maybe transient worsening of other conditions, but no Alzheimer's links. ...Read more

Has a victim of bullying ever won thru revenge?

No one wins.: If one is bullied either emotionally or physically, revenge is not the answer (check out the new tv show that dissects the complexities). Learn an approach to stand up to the bullying that will raise yourself esteem, and make the aggressor look silly. If you are young, consider informing the bully's parents directly. Or be the bigger person, and ignore the bullying, slough it off. ...Read more

Plzz tell me how to identity false memories if anybody has false memory syndrome?

Plzz tell me how to identity false memories if anybody has false memory syndrome?

False Memory : Syndrome is not a psychiatric diagnosis.
