Dozens of genes have been linked with Alzheimer's, most notably the APOE4 gene, which clearly raises the risk of developing the disease.
Tanzi's team did a genome-wide association study, using gene chips to check the activity of all human genes among families with Alzheimer's patients and comparing them with families whose members had not developed the disease.
They got the strongest indications from a stretch of DNA on chromosome 14.
"The genetic association of Alzheimer's with this novel chromosome 14 gene, which like APOE appears to influence age of onset, is sufficiently strong to warrant intensive follow-up investigations into its role in the process of nerve cell death in this disease," Tanzi said.
These brilliant scientists analyzed genes from over 1,300 families to reach their earth shattering conclusion. However, they claim they have not figured out what the new gene does.
Too bad they never bothered reading what Dr Donald Miller taught us four years ago about the APO-E4. They could have even read this blog to learn the same information and saved themselves lots of trouble. I can't count how many times I've referenced Dr Miller's information about the APO-E4 in the last four years.
Hey Harvaaahd, the presence of the APO-E4 means that that person can not rid themselves of poisons in vaccines, poisons like mercury and aluminum. If they have the APO-E3, they are able to rid their bodies of half of those metals and, genuises, if they have the APO-E2 version, they can dump all of the metals quickly.
Next time these dopes from Harvaaahd want to know something about Alzheimer's, somebody please tell them to check with a parent of an autistic child. Because, Harvaaahd genuises, autism and Alzheimer's are caused by the same damn thing, thimerosal. We even know how to help these people with the APO-E4 avoid Alzheimer's. Stop shooting the old folks up with thimerosal in their flu shots.
And Harvaaahd, you can remove that mercury and aluminum from the old folks' brains with ALA chelation. So, instead of bothering with analyzing 1,300 more families, just give me a call and I'll save you the cost of a study that we already have the answers for.
How can these Harvaaahd guys be so damn ignorant?
