Brain starvation as we age appears to trigger Alzheimer’s
A slow, chronic starvation of the brain as we age appears to be a major trigger of a biochemical process that causes some forms of Alzheimer’s disease. A new study from Northwestern University has found when the brain doesn’t get enough sugar glucose — as when cardiovascular disease restricts blood flow to the brain — a process is launched that produces the sticky clumps of protein that appear to be a cause of Alzheimer’s.
