#516 Show Summary (Dr. Allan Butterfield Show):
Dr. Butterfield’s research has changed the way American scientists think about Alzheimer’s disease. After spending an entire career on oxidation-reduction reactions in the Alzheimer’s protein “amyloid beta”, he has developed a mechanism and support from animal models on how this protein is instrumental in causing the nerve damage seen with this devastating disease. Join us as we delve into the wondrous world of redox proteonomics; we promise you won’t regret it.
Tip: To avoid Alzheimer’s disease—lots of fruits and nuts, no processed meats, exercise, learn new things, avoid chemo, and get some sleep. It’s not like we haven’t mentioned this before.
