Washington: Scientists have found how diets high in Omega 3 oils and low in cholesterol fight Alzheimer`s.
The stimulating environment included running wheels and tubes for hiding and sliding, as well as ropes and other toys for the mice to play on, replaced and updated with new toys weekly. Those in a non-stimulating environment had access to no toys at all."Conditions that are generally considered good can be harmful if the mouse is a carrier of the APOE4 gene. Extrapolating this to the human population, individuals with the bad APOE4 gene are more susceptible to stress caused by an environment that stimulates their brain," said Michaelson."The main take-away message here is that good diets can alleviate the effects of bad genes. Of course nutritionists have had this general idea for a while, but it`s nice to be able to show that this approach can be applied to specifically counteract the negative effects of Alzheimer``s disease-related genes," said Michaelson.The results will be presented at an international conference in Barcelona, Spain this March.
