    Alzheimer's, Dementia and Aging

    Brain aging and midlife tofu consumption.


    '' Poor cognitive test performance, enlargement of ventricles and low brain
    weight were each significantly and independently associated with higher
    midlife tofu consumption. ''

    Association of midlife blood pressure to late-life
    cognitive decline and brain morphology.



    '' Midlife SBP (systolic blood pressure) is a significant predictor of both decline in
    cognitive function and MR volumetric measures of brain atrophy in late life ......
    long-term impact of elevated SBP on decline in late-life neurobehavioral functioning
    is likely to be mediated through its chronic, negative effect on structural
    characteristics of the brain.''

    Lon White's study above was based on the Honolulu-Asia Aging Study.

    The full text is here :

    Weston Price Foundation : Soy and the Brain.

    '' High amounts of protein tyrosine kinases are found in the hippocampus,
    a brain region involved with learning and memory. One of soy’s primary
    isoflavones, genistein, has been shown to inhibit tyrosine kinase in the
    hippocampus, where it blocked "long-term potentiation," a mechanism
    of memory formation. ''

    Once you mess around with the hippocampus, particularly the CA1 and CA3
    regions, you're messing with long-term memory recall. The result - the hippocampus
    starts shrinking.

    CA1/CA3 signalling in the hippocampus is responsible for the conversion
    of short to long term memories and are one of the first regions to be hit in
    Alzheimer's,



    Worse, while the above study implicates soy isoflavones, aluminium is
    another culprit, something well known to be a causative agent in Alzheimer's.

    '' The results of this preliminary investigation suggest that the aluminum concentration
    in soy products is increased slightly by cooking, particularly in an aluminum pot, and
    strongly (as much as 15-fold) by some methods of tofu production. ''

    Restoring Memory, Repairing Damaged Brains With An Artificial Hippocampus.

    “No hippocampus,” says Berger, “no long-term memory, but still short-term memory.”
    CA3 and CA1 interact to create long-term memory, prior research has shown.
