Trans Fats Linked to Brain Shrinkage


In the series of articles entitled “Dumbing-Down Society” (check out part 1 and part 2) it was mentioned that a fatty diet containing lots of processed foods had a detrimental effect on, not only on the body, but on the brain as well. A recent study has further confirmed this fact stating that “people who had high levels of circulating trans fats had less brain volume. They also had poorer memory, attention, language and processing speed skills”. In other words, trans fats make you dumber. The study also suggests that consuming Omega-3 has a very noticeable positive effect on brain functions (a fact that was mentioned in the article Dumbing-Down Society Part 3: How to Reverse its Effects). Although the study focused on elderly people and on brain diseases like Alzheimer’s (an advanced state of brain atrophy), its conclusions contain facts that should be known by all who want to keep their brains healthy and fully functional. Here’s an article from the Vancouver Sun about the study.

Trans fats linked to brain shrinkage

Levels of vitamins C, E, B and D higher in group of healthy aging adults with larger brains: study

Researchers have found that there’s a part of your body that might shrink when you eat too much fast food.

Unfortunately, it’s your brain.

People with diets high in trans fats are more likely to experience the kind of brain shrink-age associated with Alzheimer’s disease than people who consume less of the artery-damaging fats, the new study suggests.

Those with diets high in vitamins C and E, the B vitamins and vitamin D, meanwhile, appear to have larger brains than people with diets low in these nutrients.

And diets high in omega three fatty acids seemed to benefit the small blood vessels of the brain – “and the thinking abilities related to those vessels,” said lead investigator Dr. Gene Bowman.

The work – published in the journal Neurology – involved 104 people, ages 65 and older, enrolled in the Oregon Brain Aging Study. All were generally healthy elders, with few smokers or people with diabetes or high blood cholesterol.

When the study was launched in 1989, “the aim was to study the effects of age on dementia risk in people that don’t have factors known to increase their risk at the time,” Bowman said.

In the new study, researchers checked blood samples for markers of 30 different nutrients. Participants also did a raft of neuropsychological tests, and 42 had MRI scans of their brains as well. The team was interested in three things: cognitive function, total brain volume and white matter changes thought to be a sign of small vessel disease of the brain.

Small vessel disease, also known as cerebral small vessel disease, is an accumulation of plaque deposits in the small blood vessels throughout the brain. It can lead to stroke.

“We know in Alzheimer’s disease that total brain atrophy [shrinkage] is accelerated com-pared to people of the same age and same gender that don’t have Alzheimer’s disease,” said Bowman, a naturopathic doctor in the department of neurology at the Oregon Health and Science University in Portland.

Among the key findings:

. The B vitamins, the antioxidants C and E and vitamin D all seemed to be working in con-cert in some way the researchers can’t yet fully explain. But the B-C-E-D pattern was associated with greater total brain volume and better global cognitive function. People who scored low on this vitamin combination turned out to have less total brain tissue;

. People who had high levels of circulating trans fats had less brain volume. They also had poorer memory, attention, language and processing speed skills;

. People with higher levels of omega three fatty acids had better executive function – the ability to plan, problem solve, multi-task and perform other functions – as well as fewer white matter lesions on their brain scans.

The findings held after researchers took age, sex, education, hypertension and genetic and other factors into account.

Some trans fats are found naturally, in small amounts, in dairy products, beef and lamb, but the trans fats in the study are hidden in cakes, flaky pas-tries, potato chips and other fried, frozen and processed food. Trans fatty acids increase inflammation, make arteries harder and decrease heart rhythm, increasing the risk of cardiac arrest.

Only a handful of studies have looked at the relationship between trans fats and brain function, Bowman said. “I think our study is one of the first to look at blood levels of trans fats related to brain health.”

Evidence suggests that trans fats can replace good fats in cell membranes, “and when that occurs it changes the structure and chemical properties of the cell in an unfavourable way,” Bowman said.

“Trans fats are known to be bad for cardiovascular health,” he said. “It makes sense that they’re probably bad for the brain, too.”

He recommended avoiding processed foods that list “partially hydrogenated oils” on the ingredient list. “That’s trans fat,” Bowman said.

Here's part of my lifestyle. Building a better brain is a big part of it. I cook for myself as much as possible. I eat very little meat. Some days I take a multi-vitamin and/or an Omega-3 pill. I try to eliminate stress from my life. I struggle with this every day (don't get me started talking about my neighbor!). I exercise (I enjoy DanceDanceRevolution, of all things!). I exercise my brain by trying to learn new things. I read VigilantCitizen daily – I have learned and am almost immune to the lies and more lies coming from the television. For the record, I'm over 50 and I haven't had a cold in perhaps 20 years. I had a small virus of some sort about 4 years ago that made me woozy, but it went away in a few hours. Be healthy in body and mind and spirit. Try to… Read more »

as usual our brains are the main target for most of their poisons. Brain is the main important part of our body they still work lot of time.

this doesnt surprise me after having read Kissinger's plan of food as a weapon and food genocide.

Remember when fast food companies said that they'll eliminate trans fat from the menu or something like that? I HIGHLY doubt it. They probably added more toxins into the foods! It's a scary thought but I think the best thing we can do is put down the Big Mac and munch on some veggies.

A couple things that are super important for everyone to know: 1. Products labeled "trans fat free" often do contain trans fat! This is because of some BS regulation (which was probably written by the food processing industry) stating that if there is 1/2 a gram of trans fat or less per serving, the product can be called trans-fat free. So the companies simply make the serving sizes smaller, and bingo! The moral of the story is, READ LABELS! If there are hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils, it does contain trans fat. 2. The new vegetable shortenings and margarines that are "trans fat free" are created using a process called interesterification, which appears to be just as bad or even worse for our health than hydrogenation. Moral of the story? Don't eat man-made fats! Eat butter, ghee, cream, lard or bacon fat, coconut oil, palm oil, olive oil, or chicken,… Read more »

Organic all the way!

here ye!

@lady GaGa- Couldnt you have just ignored that comment about Spongebob? " If you dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything at all……" I think she was getting at the whole "Doctors say one thing is good for you, next year they say its bad for you." @LBV- I'm not trying to discredit your rant, but I dont think any of those people were givin the choice to eat unhealthy. Mr. Franklin never ate Mcdonalds. Its only been in the last 60 years that people started eating the processed crap that we call food today. Most of the things they ate were natural, fruits and veggies, and the meat wasent loaded with hormones, antibiotics, and injected with "solutions". I bought an old cookbook, from the 1950s an am AMAZED at the recipes in it. The have stuff UNHEARD of nowadays. Natural, from scratch foods. Just reading the cookbook… Read more »
Just had quick look into this EDTA you're talking about & this is what i found: EDTA – a food additive sequestrant Unwanted metals often find there way into food from the soil and from machinery during harveting and processing. Often these metals, such as copper, iron and nickel, then degrade the food stuffs by catalyzing the oxidation of the fats in the food. A class of food additives known as sequestrants can be added to food. The additive reacts with trace metals in foods, forming tightly bound complexes (sequestered), thereby preventing the decompostion of the food. The sodium and calcium salts of EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) are common sequestrants in many kinds of foods and beverages. EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid). The EDTA molecule can bind to metal ions by forming six bonds to it – two from nitrogen atoms in amino groups and four from oxygen atoms in carboxyl groups. To… Read more »

By the way that information was from the Department of Chemistry/University of Oxford.

Hey Angie,

Yep, I get what you're saying, too, and tried to better explain what I didn't do so well at saying the first time around.

Sometimes rants are great free flowing thoughts…other times they go kinda sideways. 🙂

In the Capitalist New World Order, Reptilian Jinns eats you, particularly when you're couch potatoes!

Damn,this means I won't be eating anymore of those tasty pringles.

@ lady gaygay I'm just saying that the restaurants saying that they say it's good for u

Since when has mc Donald's ever claimed that 9/10 doctors recommend eating their crap?

@ naf Wtf does spongebob have to do with this? Go eat your toxic fictional krabby patties.

Anyways McDonalds fill their nuggets with crap. It's no wonder I feel mildly nauseous after eating them. >_>

One day I was watching The spongebob Truth or Square episode and there was an add( in the show about krabby patties) and mr krabs said in a doctor suit that 9out of 10 doctors recommend krabby patties and in another episode Squidward revealed that the krabby patty had lots of fat.

Truth or Square? as in masonic square?

Still not going vegetarian. . .

This appeared in the Oregonian as well.

Only problem here is – and I really do hate to state the painfully and absurdly obvious – especially because I know that many of you are very, very intelligent human beings, but…I feel it appropriate and necessary to ask that you consider this: I would have to think that in past centuries, some of the greatest minds that have existed and discovered, created, engineered, manufactured and composed some…well, quite honestly not SOME, but MOST of the greatest inventions, art and music in the history of time – all while eating plenty of those God-awful "trans fats". Ya know? Like, say….Einstein, Michealangelo, DaVinci, Beethoven, Mozart, Tesla, Wright Brothers, Newton, Galileo, Les Paul, Pasteur, A.G. Bell, ad infinitum. All of these surely had pretty "bad diets" by today's oppressive and Nazi-like judgemental standards, and yet, theyr "brain shrinkage" didn't seem to hinder their ingenious accomplishments in life. Not one bit. Now,… Read more »
I agree with the majority of your post LBV – but think you may be off track about 'trans' fat. The fat you are talking about regarding our elders does mostly not include 'trans'. But real fat. There is a difference. Good, healthy and organic 'fat' is good for our bodies and our minds. "Trans' is not. Weston A Price: – "Know Your Fats" Also even wiki proclaims: Trans fat is the common name for unsaturated fat with trans-isomer (E-isomer) fatty acid(s). Because the term refers to the configuration of a double carbon-carbon bond, trans fats are sometimes monounsaturated or polyunsaturated, but never saturated. Trans fats are rare in living nature, but can occur in food production process. The consumption of trans fats increases the risk of coronary heart disease[1][2] by raising levels of LDL cholesterol and lowering levels of "good" HDL cholesterol.[3] Health authorities worldwide recommend that consumption… Read more »

No, I wasn't calling you out at all, only making a joke about a past conversation we had.

Nothing personal intended.

And Sarah, I was really just talking TO you and the other person, but not ABOUT you. Only sharing some thoughts and observations I thought you might find interesting, but not at all meant as accusations in any way.

I guess if you saw yourself in those comments somehow, that might be revealing something from within or about yourself, but I wouldn't really know, and I certainly didn't intend anything of the sort.

There are no bad or harsh feelings on my end whatsoever…for reals. I hope only for the best things and all of God's blessings in the lives of you and your babies. Feed them and love them well – teach them to love God, and that love will be returned to you a thousandfold. 🙂

LVB – Sigh….revealing something from within, no, that wasn't it. Calling me out specifically in the middle of a two paragraph rant on people being vain and committing self idolatry COULD be seen as suggestive. No? And you weren't talking just to me, you were posting a forum where others would have no idea what you are referring to. Leaves room for error. Choose your words more carefully to avoid being misunderstood. The kicker is I do know how vain you think the world is….and the ultimate irony of this whole exhange is that in the conversation you are referring to, my attempt with you about THAT word, was actually in an effort to help you……. from over-using this charge of vannity on people that don't agree with you. Are you familiar with 'projection'? Thank you for the well wishes and know that despite the occasional dust-up, they come right… Read more »
where did u get the idea that people and/or scientists from the past ate the crappy food (standard American diet a.k.a SAD diet) that we eat today and is put in almost all our food? people in the past ate whole foods w/ hardly any chemicals because they werent even invented yet. chemicals in our food have been added progressively over this last century i would say and cancer, heart diseases and the like have gotten worse too. not to mention GMO's (genetically modified) which are seeds that had theyre DNA altered and are not found in nature, that cannot be good for our body either. this was done so the plants grown by this method (corn, soy) would accept pesticides and grow faster but did u know that all cancer tumors that are taken out of the body have pesticides in them but this info is being suppressed by… Read more »
Hey, I totally get what you're saying about chemicals and all, and there's no debating that is truthful, as is what Sarah is saying…completely true. I didn't really make the distinction well enough between "trans-" artificial vs. natural fat, so my bad there…but I do get it and agree. My point was more literally what I said (or tried to) and I guess maybe it was misunderstood somewhat. I've got no argument at all that the corp-govt-ruling elite are out to deliberately dumb us down and depopulate according to their designs for a better world…for themselves and their Luciferian pals, of course. I was just trying to get the point across that people often seem to go overboard and fanatical about these things, as though the human body doesn't have a shelf life and if we'd just eat only this or that "good and pure stuff", we'd end up differently… Read more »

@LVB….are you seriously accusing people who consider, with care, the toxins the adversary is trying to fill our bodies and our babies bodies with….as idolotry? I see no body builders pontificating here!?

And are you seriously calling me out by name as being vain because I would care about such things….for my children and the generation behind me….and next…..and next? WTH?

Trans fats are a new invention that come with new foods… the very clever people that you are talking about were unlikely to have been exposed to these chemicals. In their day, eating meat or vegrtables were more likely to be have been organic because we hadn't started playing around with food at that time…

Thank God I take Omega 3 every morning 🙂

This article is right on. Read "The China Study" it talks about a Scientist who discovered that almost all illnesses come from what we eat and that even Alzheimer’s can be prevented by changing how we eat. He did a 30 year study on how people ate. Most of this information will never be popular or be known to the masses because the food industry including dairy, USDA, FDA, pharmaceutical companies, insurance, and the medical industry, would all lose too much money.

"The China Study" T Collin Campbell

They should outlaw trans fat from food like they did in New York State in the rest of the country.

The sad thing is that so many children in North America start eating McDonalds at a very young age. I remember loving the food when I was four or five years old. It's targeted at our youth, so the elite are trying to poison us from the time we are born.

On a different note, I would love to see an article on hormones. I'm a bit of a Suzanne Somers follower, and I've learned so much from her about our society's issues with 'fake' hormones and how they are making us sick, depressed, and overweight. The birth control pill is one of the worst things that women can put in their bodies, and yet it is our cultural norm to start taking it as soon as possible. Don't even get me started on fake estrogens (xenoestrogen); they are in foods, household cleaners, skin care, plastics, etc…

What kills me is all the hysteria about obesity in this country, but we allow trans fats and corn syrup to be used in food processing, and actually subsidize some of their production with tax dollars, ie, they take our money to make poison to put in our food. They both should be illegal. Take them out of the food supply and you cut at least 25% of the obesity problem immediately. We didn't have an obesity epidemic until these toxins started being used in such massive quantities. At least another 25% of the problem could be eliminated by making the 40 hour work week mandatory and enforcing it. Working long hours sitting at a desk causes negative changes in blood sugar that lead to obesity and takes away from time when employees could walk or exercise. The hypocrisy in this country is disgusting. We say we hae civil rights,… Read more »
People always like to blame diseases on desserts and "processed foods" but in reality, almost everything the standard people eat today is extremely unhealthy. Fats, especially the kinds coming from animals, are so bad for you. Not only are they the main things that are making people overweight or obese, but they clog your arteries and block your cells (which we have like… millions of at least) so that the important things in food cannot enter and give you energy. Also, proper brain fuel is really important (and when we're fueled up, we can see through all the BS/illuminati brainwashing stuff easier). Our brain's number one fuel is, believe it or not: glucose/carbohydrates. But doctors and diet promoters out there are tellin' us "Eat less carbs, eat more meat/fish/whatever because carbs make you fat". I don't even listen to regular doctors anymore. They want us sick and dependent on their… Read more »

Yeah right. Explain how I've lost 30 pounds the last couple of months by cutting carbs and increasing consumption of grass-fed meats. Saturated fat will not clog your arteries.

You've put your body into ketosis. That's how those diets work.

Here is proof of how chicken nuggets are made. Lucky me I don't like chicken nuggets much at all anyway lol.

Cheese, butter and red meat would be better for you than refined carbs, sugary desserts and processed food. If you want to cook with fats use only virgin olive oil, coconut oil and butter. Oils high in omega 3's should be only consumed raw.

omega 3's from fish oil i will not take anymore…the sea life is poisonous. walnuts are a good source omega 3's.

Wow…..didn't know one could loose brain! I thought that eating fast food just makes you FEEL dumber and eating veggies makes you FEEL smarter. But if you look at people around you tis actually obvious that it's not just a feeling. Slimmer people tend to think faster. And when I had 20kg more on my ribs I tended to be quite slow. So from experience one could believe it! Good job VC

as usual our brains are the main target for most of their poisons

1. Stupidity—The top of the list for Satanic Sins. The Cardinal Sin of Satanism. It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity. It depends on people going along with whatever they are told. The media promotes a cultivated stupidity as a posture that is not only acceptable but laudable. Satanists must learn to see through the tricks and cannot afford to be stupid.

5. Herd Conformity—That’s obvious from a Satanic stance. It’s all right to conform to a person’s wishes, if it ultimately benefits you. But only fools follow along with the herd, letting an impersonal entity dictate to you. The key is to choose a master wisely instead of being enslaved by the whims of the many.

by Anton Szandor LaVey

What you wrote about herd conformity reminded me of something I have recently read. My friend brought me this magazine called I.D. This issue is called "The Secret Freemason Files-Who Really Runs the World?" and contains (a very misleading IMO) article about Freemasons and their role in history etc. It sort of sugar coats the things it says about them, like for example it says that Albert Pike wrote a 900 page book on Freemasonry and that he mentions Lucifer. LOL I think he does a little more than just mention him, but anyway back on subject. On the very last page of this magazine is an advertisement for some free ebooks. I could be wrong about this, because I have not actually read these books yet, but the ad sounds like it is promoting a new world order. "What creates a new world? The answer is found by people… Read more »
Ugh I hate this computer! Sorry it glitched and submitted my comment too soon. (continued) "The law that defines right action as thoughts, words, and deeds that are rational and honest–nonconformance prolongs society's old-world problems, failures and afflictions." At the top of the ad it says, "Do you long for a new world? A world of no conflict, no jealousy, no unkind words. A world in which people think, say, and do what is rational and honest, resulting in behavior that is caring, trustworthy, and productive." It goes on and on about how conforming to the "law of right action" will birth a new world and those who don't cause chaos. It basically says that if you live by the natural laws of who or whatever created the universe then the world would be a better place, and that is not bad advice, but I sensed an alterior motive.

Also in 2011 it was "discovered" that processed foods like deli and smoked meat, cheese, white foods (bread, rice, sugar, ect) and products containing sodium nitrite are the real cause of Alzheimer, which is diabetes in the brain. Is it coincidence that in America only the low class family supermarkets get this products while the upper class supermarkets get mostly organic and unprocessed foods?

These bastards that are behind all of this are inhuman.

What does the size of our brain matter when we barely use it? I'm not for advocating the decrease in brain size as obviously our usage will decrease according to scale, however in today's world it seems that most of us would rather use it for ill means ie. how to make money (off others) and how to gain (from others) in other sectors.

Obviously there is a selective aspect to this, as only certain people (even though its 80%+) will go through this dumb process, while the "elite" shall continue to utilize their brain power for ill means.

Sadly I think you're right!

So many foods are poisonous to our bodies and the truth is being hidden. I want VC to do an article on aspartame. This is also very poisonous and dangerous and is found in most products that contains sugar.

Not sure what VC could report on, it's up to people themselves to investigate and find out the truth about the things in our food.

Great article! Everybody should be aware of this little known fact also: my organic chem professor told the class one day that food companies round DOWN when it comes to putting nutritional facts out to the public. Basically this means that a food product can have up to 0.9 grams of something (such as trans fats) and be rounded down to zero. So even if the label says there is none, don't believe it whole heartedly.

I've heard this before. They could at least be honest and say "Under 1 gram trans fat" instead of lying and saying there are none. I can't believe they do that.

I've known this for a while. Apparently "less than one" is equal to zero. Must be that new math I've heard about.

Vitamin D helps big time (check out and the best way to get it is through sunlight (and you wonder why you're told sun exposure can cause cancer, go figure).

I'm glad my son loves sardines. Good for you. And he wants some for dinner tonight, he told me!

I've told my students in class that McDonald's food makes them dumber, and they wouldn't give me credit for it… hopefully now they'll open their eyes.

You know the strange thing is, when I eat a meal at McDonalds, I really enjoy it at first. It is cheap, filling and very tasty. However, just 10 minutes after I finish, I get this really weird feeling that kind of feels like its physically dragging me down. I personally think that home made food, even if it is a burger with fries I made from scratch, feels much satisfying afterwards. You feel like you ate REAL food. The empty calories in those meals does not make it as enjoyable.

I'm never eating at that place again!

McDonald's puts drugs in their meats and french fries. Can't prove it, but my body tells me this.

I eat there on occasion (when you drive for a living sometimes you take what you get, and McD's can be the only thing given), and when I eat something other then a salad I feel like some low-grade narcotic has gone through my body, relaxing it a bit.

You're probably allergic to the drugs they put in their food. You're lucky; in a way….

Too true; but it's not just the additives, it's also the main ingredients. Chicken Nuggets, for example, are a far cry from 'pieces of meat'. Instead, they are made of a nasty-sounding substance called 'Chicken Slurry'. From Wikipedia: {A meat slurry, reconstituted meat, or emulsified meat is a liquefied meat product that contains fewer fats, pigments and less myoglobin than unprocessed dark meats. Meat slurry also eases the process of meat distribution and is more malleable than dark meats. Meat slurry is not designed to sell for general consumption; rather, it is used as a meat supplement in food products for humans, such as chicken nuggets, and food for domestic animals. Poultry is the most common meat slurry; however, beef and pork are also used.} In other words, we're eating ground up bits of the animal (including tails and snouts perhaps), which no one would buy otherwise. Add the aforementioned… Read more »

it is true about McDonald's I havent ate their foods in a long time before I knew anything about the health factor.

I used to feel a weird heaviness in my stomach and I feel that it takes very long to get digested so i stopped eating their for years now thank god

@VOR – I actually know a 'food commissioner/inspector', and the amounts of nuggets that get recalled because they contain beaks, eyes or feet is disturbing. National fast food chains and grocery store freezer section included. I've been sick for weeks off some of the stories. Make your own nuggets.

I'll never forget in Supersize Me how Morgan Spurlock is eating in the car, all happy and smilling with his MickeyD's, and suddenly turns and HURLS out of the car window. Total projectile vomiting. Says it all – the body was smart enough to reject it. It's so engineered it isn't even really food anymore. It's a chemical construct. And I have to say – meat slurry? BLEAH. Think about this – the biggest consumers of all kinds of chicken nuggets are children, because they are picky and won't eat anything else. But if they knew what they were eating, they'd probably cry.

Liquid Chicken

@Godozo: I hate it when you're put into a circumstance where McDonalds is the only option! They are in every block and corner, to make sure that you don't miss their disgusting food. I've been eating from there since I was a little girl, I think that once I found out HOW they make their food I'm just psychologically rejecting it.

@Voiceofreason: My mother at any restaurant, always says go for the fillet. At least it looks like real chicken, unlike nuggets!

@listen: that's the same feeling I used to get too!

@Sarah: that's gross! I'm sure people with jobs like that never eat out lol.

@Ralphster: Supersize me is one of my favorite documentaries! But did people actually stop eating it? I know that it opened my eyes..

I know exactly what you mean! Every time I eat Mcdonalds, Pizza Hut or KFC, I love how it tastes but I ALWAYS end up throwing up afterwards. Especially the m&m mcflurry. It never stays in, and NO, I'm NOT bulimic.

Was just sent a link today from the Michigan Welfare Web site which showed a list of "restaurants" where the food stamps or whatever they do are accepted for those age 60 and up. A TON of KFCs and McDonald's were on the list. Whaaat???? We're paying for people to eat at McDonalds & KFC? Seriously, everyone should watch Supersize Me. I recently watched Dr. LaPuma on OPB and he is advocating wonderful whole unprocessed foods to help your health and get rid of the many medications people are using for high blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes. So many American conditions are self-induced by what we eat and the lack of exercise. Yes, genetics play a role, but you can help things out by cutting out the processed crap!

Yep great article! Got to start looking into growing, making, storing, preserving my own food! Even though ya know the soil and air and water suck….. 🙁

Have to stay positive though, start making healthier choices, and I look forward to it!

You should do more health related articles like this one! They're great 🙂

And that's why i love Jamie Oliver 🙂 thanks VC!

They are indoctrinating us, poisoning us, making us psychologically and unconsciously susceptible to satanic esoteric symbols, infecting us with diseases, and lowering our population through satanic covert activities. These "people" envision a world less populated with them and their descendants as the elite and the surviving population as fuel that feeds the new transhumanist and technosavvy machine. There are those of us destined to die because we know the truth and will fight with every fiber against the culling of the "herd" of humanity. I've read the end of the Book (Revelation) and I know how it will play out. I'll see you guys under the alter.

This was well put, and how true it is. Knowing I am not the only one thinking this way is quite comforting!

I don't know, But I think Everyone needs to research all the facts then decide what they think about this article. Because there could be different factors, That cause or help progress Alzheimer. I personally have known some who have suffered from this. And would like an answer too. .. and I just want all the facts on. So If you would like an answer please, Be sure to research on this topic before saying"yes". I believe this, or that as fact, and a real truthful conclusion.

Thanks and Happy searching.

Or on this if that link doesn't work out.

Have you ever stopped to think that there isn't just ONE factor to blame for Alzheimer's? That "quite possibly"- it could be caused by NUMEROUS factors? It has been asserted that too much aluminum in your body will affect your brain and cause damage that can lead to Alzheimer's. So if VC's assertions here are true, and trans-fat does influence Alzheimer's, would you quit crediting the aluminum? No…. So my point here is- whatever you find in your research, use this as part of that information and decide whether or not you believe it through more research. But just because you cannot grasp an idea doesn't negate what you already DO grasp. It just facilitates it.

@Casual Observer

You are totally right, we are the winners even before we fight.

@Everyone above me

You may be wrong, you know?

Saying things like "we're the winners even before we fight" sound quite arrogant, you know?

ya know five years ago I would have read your comment and probably said whoa what the heck is that guy/gal smoking, what a nutbar.

Sadly, today I read it and can only agree with it word for word. I find myself replaying that scene from the Matrix over in my head you know the one that ends with ignorance is bliss.

I'm waiting for the truth about that crud called Sunny D to come out, not sure but I think that crap has like 40% oil of somekind in it. That can't be good for the body. That's one thing I shudder at when I see people drinking it, that and any Diet cola.

@ Alex.

What he means is that God already has the end written and like all good stories, the bad guys lose in the end. Reading the bible is like reading the book before seeing the movie. We're the move, and true believers know how it will play out.

I pray one day you will understand this like we do


God bless

Amen and Amen. Very well said. We may meet under the altar sooner than anyone realizes, doesn't FEMA already have the guillotines locked and loaded?

And yet, Alex, if we're wrong, what have we to lose? Our lives? Please. I think we can all agree that life here on this earth is only getting worse and worse as the evil global regime builds more and more power. But if you're the one who's wrong, does that not make you shudder? It's like the old argument, "I'd rather be wrong and be me than be wrong and be you."

like the matrix

how is population getting lower? We've just hit 7 billion! and growing by 15,000 births an hour. I can't even get a seat at the park or on the subway, and the supermarket aisles are packed there's nowhere to move!

Pffft I'm in Asia. Failing birth rates in Singapore, Korea, Japan. increasing deaths and yet they say 7 billion.
