THE BEST MEDICINEf-
LAUGH!

FIRST DOSE
There are always two ways
to look at everything, I
guess. My wife and I were
sitting at a table at my
high school reunion last
October, and I kept staring
at a drunken lady swigging
her drink as she
sat alone at a nearby
table. My wife noticed me
staring and asked me, "Do
you know her?".

"Yes",
I sighed, "She's my old
girlfriend. I understand she
took to drinking right after
we split up those  
many years ago, and I
hear she hasn't been sober
since." "My God!" says my
wife, "Who would
think a person could go on
celebrating that long?"

THE BEST MEDICINE-
LAUGH!

SECOND DOSE
Last night, my friend and I
were sitting in the living
room and
I said to her, "I never want
to live in a vegetative
state, dependent on
some machine and fluids
from a bottle. If that ever
happens, just pull the
plug."


She got up, unplugged the
TV, and threw out my wine

Americans Are Dangerously Sleep Deprived

Alzheimer's is the 7th leading cause of death in the United
States. Five million Americans now have Alzheimer's. If you are
60 years old or over, you face a 5% risk of developing this
disease.  But the risk of Alzheimer's increases as you get older.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, over 50%  of all
Americans over 85 years old --- one-half --- will  develop
Alzheimer's.  Pretty sobering facts.

And yet, the staggeringly high rate of Alzheimer's in the U.S. is
not found all over the world. Alzheimer's is not a natural part
of aging. India, for example, has one of the lowest rates of
Alzheimer's in the world.
Americans suffer from Alzheimer's at
a rate 3 times higher than India's. What gives?  

Is there an ideal breakfast you should eat to lower your risk for
Alzheimer's and dementia? What foods should you include in a
breakfast to fight Alzheimer's? As a general matter, are there
breakfast foods which can help you keep your brain healthy
and your memory sharp? Surprisingly,  research studies
indicate that  there certainly are such foods.

Based upon the latest research, here are the foods which , if
eaten for breakfast, offer you the best protection against
Alzheimer's disease and dementia.

























1.
Super Omelet to Fight Alzheimer's.  Your ideal breakfast to
fight Alzheimer's should start with an omelet of one whole egg
and an egg white, mixed with generous scoop of curry. As we
have written about in our article on Alzheimer's disease in
India, the answer lies in the differences between the Indian
diet and the typical American diet.  Researchers believe the high
amount of
curry in the Indian diet actually protects their brains
from the plaque formations that characterize Alzheimer's
disease.


2.
Tomatoes. In addition to curry, promising research indicate
foods rich in lithium help to fight Alzheimer's. Among all foods,
eggs and dairy are rich in lithium. Among vegetables, tomatoes
are a lithium-rich food.  Add diced tomatoes to your omelet to
boost your daily lithium intake.

3.
Mushrooms. Like tomatoes, and eggs, mushrooms are high
in lithium content, which can help to improve your memory and
reduce the brain plaque that accompanies Alzheimer's. Brown
mushrooms in olive oil (olive oil spray if you want to lower the
calories) and add them to your omelet.

4.
Paprika. Sprinkle this lithium-rich spice on your omelet for
added protection against dementia.

4.
Lox.  Add a side of lox to your omelet to boost the amount of
omega-3 fatty acids n your breakfast. Salmon is rich in
omega-3 fatty acids which have been linked with improved
memory and lower risk of Alzheimer's.

Update:

5.
A Mediterranean Diet Lowers Your Risk for Alzheimer's. A
2010 study from Columbia University discovered that, the more
closely you follow a Mediterranean diet, the lower your risk for
developing Alzheimer's disease.

In the study, the dietary habits of 1,219 healthy people over
the age of 65 were studied for 4 years. The Mediterranean diet
lowers your body's level of
inflammation. At the end of 4 years,
those who had the lowest levels of body inflammation
--meaning they followed the Mediterranean diet most closely
--had 34% fewer cases of Alzheimer's.

How can you follow the Mediterranean diet at breakfast?
Instead of butter to cook your eggs, use
olive oil. Instead of
white table sugar, use honey. Instead of red meat, use fresh
eggs or a breakfast fish such as herring. Instead of cheese high
in fat, use feta or goat cheese. Instead of a danish muffin,
choose fresh melon or fibrous fruit such as strawberries or
apples. For the rest of day, build your meals around fish and
fresh vegetables.
