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

Met some people who used RSO (RickSimpson Oil) cannabis oil to cure their cancer, left out (cancer) last question. Thoughts on validity of claim?

Cannabis oil: This oil has not been evaluated to FDA standards in order to determine its efficacy or safety. This does not mean it is not safe or effective, but up until now most research has been done by advocates. Do you think it plausible that a single oil could cure all cancer types as claimed? ...Read more

Any info on primal jax by bodytech im 40yrs?

Any info on primal jax by bodytech im 40yrs?

No reliable info: There are hundreds of supplements advertised to do all sorts of magical stuff. Very few supplements have real research studies to show benefits (but manufacturers make claims, based on theories, animal tests, testimonials, chemical similarities, etc... But not on real research because real research is hard to do and is expensive to do). So, with supplements, nobody really knows the full effects. ...Read more

This : This could be a serious neuro-ophthalmological problem, and you need to see a pediatric or neuro-ophtalmologist right a way. It could also be a problem with muscle imbalance relating to the prism in the glasses, which can be easily fixed with new glasses. Either way, get to your eye md as soon as possible to have this checked out. ...Read more

What about Meiji collagen that was advertised on Oprah's T.V show ?

What about Meiji collagen that was advertised on Oprah's T.V show ?

Anything advertised: by a celebrity is best avoided in my opinion. Celebrities, depite their popularity are still only lay people. And those who are physicians, well, lets say most don't actually practice medicine and have financial interests clouding their judgement. My suggestion: Ask a question about the problem you have that you would want to solve with this product. Get some real medical input. Best to you! ...Read more

What is the reality behind Perispinal Etanercept treatment for stroke patients? I read a few articles on pubmed which is a government site?  If all claims are fake thn why government isn't tkng action

Etanercept: This is a subject of controversy in the medical literature, with different studies (of different quality) yielding different results. It is an off-label use of the medication, but how far off-label is in the eye of the beholder. The treatment may not work, but the government, and medical boards, give a certain amount of latitude to doctors to use medicines for off label use. ...Read more

On autism spec, age 29, dad says memory get replaced by false memory often.  Recently, mistook my mailbox for another, until landlady corrected me.

I don't see a: Question, but i guess you are wondering if your father's comment is correct. We all distort reality in our minds to varying degrees. Is it more so in people with autism? I don't know because I have never seen the world through their eyes. Even having a grandson with autism, he is too young to state with certainty that his vision of the world is necessarily any more distorted than mine or your dads. ...Read more
