**There is much discussion and some belief that more oxygen to the brain and also the health of the Cardiovascular system may HELP slow down AD in some ppl**

YOUR input appreciated as well


  Hypoxia -- low blood-oxygen levels -- "does a lot of things to the brain," Nixon said. "It has a lot of effects on brain function other than what is being described here. There should be at least some consideration of the broader context -- that hypoxia itself is a cause of impairment."

Nevertheless, Nixon said, the report "is an interesting additional link that has not been appreciated before between hypoxia and this metabolic pathway."

Nixon and Song did agree on one point.

"The study reinforces another message that has emerged in recent years -- that the health of the cardiovascular system is very important for the health of the brain," Nixon said. "The things one does to promote the health of the cardiovascular system are going to help the brain when it is challenged in Alzheimer's disease. Lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise are also an edge against hypoxia."

Song concurred. "If we can improve blood flow to the brain, maybe we can help slow Alzheimer's progression. This report provides the mechanics for that. Increasing blood flow for the heart also helps slow Alzheimer's disease," he said.

This has been out and about for some time now BUT they are really pushing this more with the alarming rate of AD in the world ........
