Can antiviral drugs combat Alzheimers disease




Q: I have read on your website that herpes infections have been linked to Alzheimers disease. If there is a connection, would taking an antiviral medicine (one that combats both cold sores and genital herpes) be helpful? A: You are asking a brilliant question. Scientists have been proposing that Alzheimers disease may be linked to herpes infections (Neuron, June 21, 2018). The peptide that makes up amyloid plaques typical of Alzheimers disease appears to be the brains way of fighting infection. Learn more about this in our free one-hour radio interview with Dr. Robert Moir and Dr. Dale Bredesen.

Old friend seeks encouraging words for mother of a criminal




Dear Abby: What do you say when a friends son has committed a horrific crime? Does one say, Im sorry or Call me, or merely pat them on the shoulder and move on? Or, what? I know she is suffering and blames herself for his crime. How do I even approach her? I knew her quite well until I moved away and started my life on an opposite coast. Telling her what her son did is not her fault somehow seems trite. Im sure other people have been in this kind of situation. I found out about the young mans crime from the news media. I havent been in contact with his mother for some time, which makes me feel awkward.

Get a boost with exercise tools designed to help you get moving




Exercise of any kind should be fun. After all, its basically playing. But it doesnt strike a lot of folks like that. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that only about 22 percent of Americans meet even the minimal physical activity guidelines for aerobic and strength-building activities! The less you get up and move around, the harder it is to feel like doing it or even to be able to do it in a way that feels satisfying. Thats why were so enthusiastic about some cool tools that will make it a whole lot easier for you to start and continue to add at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day to your routine.

Honeymoon help




Dear Readers: Todays Sound Off concerns wedding gifts: Dear Heloise: I recently attended the wedding of a friends daughter, and since they made no bones about wanting cash for their honeymoon, I gave them $100. I was told that asking people to fund a honeymoon is now the new normal for couples getting married. Am I out of step with modern weddings? Brandi W., New Braunfels Brandi, weve had several letters on this new trend of couples asking for money for their honeymoon.
