Not just cancer! – Alzheimer’s and vitamins

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on December 10, 2013


Here is a quote from a story about Alheimer’s and Dementia:

“The failure to take the likes of diet, exercise and supplements seriously is very galling because at Oxford we’ve shown it’s possible to slow down the Alzheimer’s type brain shrinkage with B vitamins costing pennies a day. Yet scientists still regularly claim there is no way to modify the progression of this ghastly disease. What they mean is there’s no drug to do that. A senior scientist with a pharmaceutical company made this very clear when he spoke to me after I’d given a talk about my research. He described the result as ‘phenomenal’, adding: ‘If it had been a drug, it would be worth billions’. For the sake of all of us, and our families, ignoring all sorts of possible treatments just because they won’t make billions can’t go on.” David Smith is Emeritus professor of pharmacology at Oxford University and founder of the research project OPTIMA (Oxford Project to Investigate Memory and Ageing)
