    Finally made 1000 posts
    I am often surprised at the amount of medical innovation coming out of Great Britain, considering they have socialized medicine. But they do pretty well.

    Beware of people tossing about the term Alzheimer's. Beware of people relying on anecdotal "evidence" because it could be no more than a coincidence that their loved one's behavior changed. That happens with dementia patients no matter what is done, or not done.

    I've learned a lot about dementia since 2003 when my mother started showing signs of it. Now she just sits in a wheelchair at the nursing home and shakes. She can chew and swallow when she's fed, but that's it. She doesn't say hello or goodbye or even look at you when you're talking unless you get up in her face.

    Alzheimer's is one form of dementia and can only be conclusively diagnosed with an autopsy.

    I forgot to mention that ketones aren't really news.

    www.practicalneurology.org/issues/0509/PN0509_07.php

    Accera Pharmaceuticals of Colorado sells Axona.

    "Reger did the first clinical study of ketone bodies in cognitive function in 2004."

    So, I suppose coconut oil won't do any harm, but it's not a new idea.
