This new tool can help determine Alzheimer's risk 5.12.2017 DNA: India
Scientists have developed a new tool that tracks brain performance in adults and may help identify people who are prone to Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia. Dementia is a growing problem worldwide with many undiagnosed cases. Although there is no cure, potential treatments are being tested and some risk factors, such as diet and exercise, can be addressed to delay onset.  The tool, called QuoCo (cognitive quotient), could be used by healthcare professionals, especially family physicians, to monitor cognitive decline in patients before irreversible damage occurs. "Similar to 'growth charts' used in pediatrics, the QuoCo cognitive charts allow physicians to plot cognitive performance of any patient based on age and education, and track cognitive change over time," said Robert Laforce, from Universite Laval in Canada. "This would allow physicians to intervene and potentially treat an older adult who 'fell off' the curve," said Laforce. "Early detection of cognitive impairment remains our best ...

Meat, dairy and sugar - The villains in your kitchen! 26.11.2017 DNA: Popular News
When you go to buy a pair of shoes you spend at least a few minutes checking out the fit, comfort and safety factors. When you go to buy a car you put in so much research about the safety features amongst other factors.
