New treatment tested on mice could hold hope for Alzheimer’s patients, families

While scientists have been focusing on plaques that build up in brains of Alzheimer’s disease patients, a new treatment that has been recently tested on mice could lead to new hope for the patients and their families.

Earlier this year, researchers at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute reversed the development of BACE1, the Journal of Experimental Medicine reported. BACE1 is an amyloid plaque that builds up in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients.

But now doctors in Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have targeted another plaque called APOE, UPI reported.

Researchers found that giving the mice used in the study anti-APOE injections reduced the amount of the plaque in the brain by as much as half, UPI reported.

And the vaccinations not only target APOE, they actually remove it from the patient’s system, Science Daily reported.

"Acting like he's too good to shop at Wal-Mart or making snarky comments about kids at school who shop at the Goodwill and quite a few other things," she said. 

The mother decided enough was enough. So she took him to Goodwill and told him he had to use his own $20 to buy clothes to wear to school for the entire week. 

Forney said that she received her son’s permission to share the lesson on Facebook with her son. She said they have an excellent relationship, and this wasn't a punishment but a learning opportunity to help her son "become a better man."

"I want to teach my kids that money isn't everything and if you have to degrade other people because of where they shop, then you too will shop there," she said. 

Forney noted that she loves the Goodwill and has found many good deals and nice items at the store. 

Her original Facebook post has more than 193,000 shares.

Bakery saves the day for nonverbal boy after iPad stolen: 'It's the only way he can communicate'

A Massachusetts bakery is helping a boy with special needs communicate again after his trusty iPad was stolen.

>> Watch the news report here

Three-year-old Hunter Jerrier has Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome, and because he's nonverbal, he uses his iPad to speak.

Hunter's father, Brian Jerrier, says the gateway to understanding his son's wants and needs is his iPad, which is loaded with special programs to help out his little one.

However, on Saturday, during a trip to White's Bakery in Brockton, Hunter's method of communication was stripped from him when someone stole his gadget.

His parents said someone took it from a counter just minutes after they accidentally left it there.

"As a grown, 40-year-old man it made me cry. It was my fault because I put it down. I felt like I let him down because it's the only way he can communicate with us," Brian said.

The Jerriers thought it was a lost cause until they received a phone call less than 24 hours after the theft from a manager at the bakery.

The manager offered to replace the iPad and followed through with his word.

"There are still good people out there that, in a really crummy situation, made it easier for him, easier for us and did it so quickly," said Amanda Jerrier, Hunter's mom.

Now, the Jerriers said the last way to right this wrong is for the thief to come forward.

"I would like to know how it would feel if you were unable to speak in any type of way," Brian said.

First the baby started crying and then the toddler cried harder. But the kindness of a stranger shined a light in the otherwise dark moment for Paterson.

Instead of casting the side-eye looks and complaining about the crying children that many other shoppers could have done, Tiffany Guilory scooped up 2-year-old Jacob and soothed him, walking with Paterson as she finished her grocery shopping for 45 minutes.

Paterson snapped a photo of Guilory that has gone viral.

Guilory told KHOU that’s she’s been there. She has two kids herself.

“It really touched me.” Gilory told KHOU. “I know how it is. I’ve been there. I have two kids, it’s frustrating and that baby is 2 months. You have hormones going...and people are looking at you crazy, and I just wanted to help. God sent me there to help her.”

“Kindness and understanding goes a long way, and I think it’s true, because I didn’t feel judged. I had a helping hand, and I needed it at that moment,” Paterson told KHOU.

Grilling meat could raise your risk of high blood pressure, study says

Grill lovers beware. Before you fire up the grill, a new report says that barbecue may increase your risk of high blood pressure.

Researchers from the American Heart Association presented a report Wednesday that explored whether foods cooked at high temperatures affect blood pressure. 

To do so, they examined more than 100,000 people from various long-term health studies. Researchers gathered information about the individuals’ cooking methods and the development of high blood pressure among those who regularly ate beef, poultry or fish.

After analyzing the results, researchers found that none of the participants had high blood pressure, diabetes or cancer at the start of the program. About 37,000 of them had developed high blood pressure during the followup 12 to 16 years later.

When the scientists took a closer look, they discovered that those who reported eating two servings of red meat, chicken or fish a week were at higher risk for hypertension. 

The risk was 17 percent higher for people who grilled, broiled or roasted beef, chicken or fish more than 15 times a month, compared to those who did it less than four times a month.

Furthermore, the risk was 15 percent higher for those who liked their meats well-done as opposed to rarer. High blood pressure risk was also higher for those estimated to have consumed the highest levels of heterocyclic aromatic amines, a chemical found on meats that are charred or exposed to high temperatures.

“The chemicals produced by cooking meats at high temperatures induce oxidative stress, inflammation and insulin resistance in animal studies, and these pathways may also lead to an elevated risk of developing high blood pressure,” Gang Liu said in a Wednesday news release

“Our findings suggest that it may help reduce the risk of high blood pressure if you don’t eat these foods cooked well done and avoid the use of open-flame and/or high-temperature cooking methods, including grilling/barbequing and broiling.”

Find out more about the report at the American Heart Association website.
