I am trying to find that person that always speaks about Mercury poisoning. Can some one send me his email as I lost it. Thanks

Michael, his user name is TheSteven.  He has a blog.  I brought up one of his posts from 2015 (a concerned spouse); scroll down towards the bottom.

Alzheimer’s disease could be caused by a gum infection, according to a new study.

The study, published this week in the peer-reviewed journal Science Advances, suggests the bacteria Porphyromonas gingivalis that destroys gum tissue in the mouth is linked to dementia and Alzheimer's.

Researchers observed the bacteria in the brains of people with Alzheimer's disease. They also conducted tests on mice that showed the gum infection led to an increased production of amyloid beta, a part of the amyloid plaques associated with Alzheimer's disease.

"Despite significant funding and the best efforts of academic, industry, and advocacy communities, clinical progress against Alzheimer's has been frustratingly slow," Casey Lynch, author on the paper and CEO of pharmaceutical company Cortexyme, said in a statement. "The Science Advances publication sheds light on an unexpected driver of Alzheimer's pathology."

Cortexyme, which funded the research, is designing a series of therapies to treat the gum infection that plan to go to Phase 2 and 3 clinical trials.

*****

there were new articles lately about bacteria from gum tissue getting into brain and the plaques and tangles being body's defence. Rogue research is going on, a man I used to work for funded several new independent research projects to take a fresh look at what has been a trillion dollar failure in finding a cause and treatment.

  • Bacteria in periodontitis seems to be the culprit.
  • Reported amyloid and tau buildups may be a response, not a cause.
  • Compelling research offers a genuine reason for optimism.

Update, 1/31/2019Science News has reported on the funding of this study, unpublished contradictory evidence, and the broad conclusions made in media headlines. Whenever new research claims a breakthrough, it's wise to reserve judgment just a bit, as we do. According to Rudolph Tanzi, Alzheimer's researcher at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, while it's true that gum disease may lead to Alzheimer's, it's far from proven. You can read his concerns here.

Dementia is now the fifth leading cause of death around the world, and 70 percent of that is due to Alzheimer's disease. Until now, experts have been baffled by what causes it, and powerless at slowing or reversing the cruel progress of this condition. Alzheimer's pulls its victims away from reality as their families watch, hearts breaking, until death delivers the final blow. That may be about to change, though, thanks to new research that suggests the cause of Alzheimer's is actually bacteria.

Porphyromonas gingivalis, to be specific — the inflamer of gum disease.
