Your apologies are insincere and meaningless since you seem to NEVER be "on topic" for a radiation safety forum. Moreover, the list can certainly do without your Middle East politics and other random musings. They add nothing of value (not that there is much any more). Something tells me that you really don't have a very heavy workload if that stuff occupies your thoughts all the time. Much the same could be noted of other frequent contributors. The only reason I am commenting is that I have a little spare time on a WELL EARNED vacation.

This is off topic, but medically important so here it comes.
Google news has an item today about Alzheimer's treatment
using some chemical.
See the news item for details. The chemical clears plaques
associated with Alzheimers
from the brains of mice. Nice work being done here.
Maybe someday Medical Doctors will do brain bypasses (like
Heart bypasses but
more difficult/complex????). Then bioengineer a new skull top to
allow extra room in the
area of the brain where the surgery occurred????
I doubt a lung body burden (Am, Pu, U etc.) would be
responsible for Alzheimers
disease plaques. Is Parkinson's disease similar to Alzheimers???
--- plaques blocking
brain blood vessels cause oxygen loss in the brain. As the result
of this brain tissue and nerves
in the brain start to die. Thinking is affected and also body motor
in bodily tremors???).
Have a good weekend!!!! Regards, Joseph R. (Joe) Preisig, PhD
