Colin Tennebar Psychology 10:00 Dr. Jennifer Griffin First off, I’d like to apologize for using Alzheimer’s disease as my Internet article because you used it in the syllabus as your example. This topic is very important to me because I watched my grandmother rot in bed for eight years due to this disease. The Internet article(s) I have dealt with the latest treatments and helps of prevention for this incurable disease. The first article I have deals with estrogen. Studies show that women who take estrogen after menopause have an unexpectedly low incidence of Alzheimer’s disease. Estrogen is a product produced by a female’s body that boosts the production of acetylcholine, a key component that keeps away Alzheimer’s disease. The greater the amount of estrogen being absorbed into the body, the greater the mental improvement. Studies are still being done on estrogen, but the results that are in are positive for the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. There is not one known cause that can be linked to Alzheimer’s, in fact, it’s not known for a fact if you have Alzheimer’s until after you die and an autopsy is done. One hypothesis is that high “bad” cholesterol or LDL is connected to Alzheimer’s because it favors deposition of beta-amyloid. Beta-amyloid reacts with cells that line blood vessels in the brain that produce free radicals that damage brain tissue. Antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, and E, mineral selenium and beta-carotene can help cut the risks, other than that “cut the risks”, there is no real prescription in the world that can prevent it. The new agent in the market is a pure substance called gingko biloba. It is now sold on the shelves at a local grocery store commonly found in tea. Research has indicated it is a memory-boosting herb. Some people swear by it, but when I bought some it made me more “alive”, but I didn’t feel a sense of memory being restored when I was studying for my accounting test….
