Can Your Antacid Cause Alzheimer’s Disease?

Can your antacid really cause Alzheimer’s Disease? Recent research suggests that, indeed, proton pump inhibitors, some of the most common drugs for reducing feelings of heartburn, can cause an increase in the ‘beta amyloid’ deposits in the brain that are indicative of Alzheimer’s Disease. This is in addition to some of the other serious Proton Pump Inhibitor Side Effects, like osteoporosis, magnesium deficiency and  heart rhythm problems; Antacid Medications can Even Ruin Your Gut. These problems can occur even when these heartburn relieving drugs are taken for short amounts of time. All too often, though, these drugs, with names like: Omeprazole Lansoprazole Pantoprazole Esomeprazole Rabeprazole and other drugs in the same class are taken for many years, which can cause Alzheimer’s at a much higher rate than those who do not take them. Is the risk of permanent loss of memory worth it for temporary heartburn relief that can be accomplished using other means that don’t cause Alzheimer’s? Solving the underlying problem can even DECREASE the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s, rather than increasing the risk with dangerous drugs. “Studies have shown that proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) increase the brain burden of amyloid-beta (Aβ) and also create vitamin B12 deficiency. However, these two phenomena have deleterious effect on cognition and Alzheimer’s disease (AD).” Cognitive impact after short-term expos...

ConclusionsVitamin D insufficiency was prevalent in both newly diagnosed axSpA patients and healthy controls. There was no association between vitamin D and pain and disease activity in the newly diagnosed axSpA patients. Monitoring vitamin D levels is important and early intervention for vitamin D insufficiency is needed, especially in female patients.

In this study H. pylori CagL gene was cloned in pAMJ2008 vector and transferred to Lactococcus lactis MG1363 as the host for CagL antigen production. This recombinant bacterium was orally subjected to mice, and the immune response to CagL was evaluated by ELISA. Intracellular expression of CagL protein was confirmed by Western blot analysis. Mucosal immunization of mice with the recombinant L. lactis significantly stimulated CagL-Specific antibodies: IgA, IgG, cytokine IL-17 and IN-γ. Moreover, the specific anti-CagL IgA response was detected in the feces of immunized mice. These results indicate that CagL of H. pylo...

Jeffrey A. SingerAs of December 2019, eight states haveacted to ban the sale of flavored e-cigarettes. Other states arecontemplating bans in 2020.I have pointed outhere andhere why banning flavored vaping products will deny adult tobacco smokers a proven means of quitting harmful tobacco smoking. In fact, nicotine e-cigarettes —of which more than 90 percent of adult tobacco quitters prefer the flavored kind—aretwice as effective as nicotine gum or patches in helping smokers stop. We recently learned from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that virtually every case of EVALI (e-cigarette or vaping pro...

Publication date: Available online 12 December 2019Source: Journal of Neuroscience MethodsAuthor(s): Krishnashis Chatterjee, Cora M Esparza, Jennifer M MunsonAbstractThe brain consists of a complex network of cells and matrix that is kept cushioned and nourished by multiple types of fluids: cerebrospinal fluid, blood, and interstitial fluid. The movement of these fluids through the tissues has recently gained more attention due to implications in Alzheimer's Disease and glioblastoma. Therefore, methods to study these fluid flows are necessary and timely for the current study of neuroscience. Imaging modalities such as magn...

Specifically, Zn:SnO2/SnS2 nanocomposites were successfully synthesized by a simple one-pot hydrothermal method and used to build the immunosensor. The combination of SnS2 and SnO2 with matching energy levels promoted the layer-by-layer transfer of photoge...
