http://www.michaelberrydc.com Call (714) 639 - 4640 By studying the brains of 678 nuns -- at the convent of the School Sisters of Notre Dame and six others in the order, in Connecticut, Maryland, Texas, Wisconsin, Missouri and Illinois -- Dr. David A. Snowdon, an epidemiologist at the University of Kentucky, and colleagues have come up with some clues to warding off dementia and Alzheimer's. Dr. Snowdon hopes his study will encourage people to do things to ward off the disease, like quit smoking and other stroke-causing behaviors, and read to children to stimulate language development. His current project involves analyzing old photographs of nuns for personality clues in their face muscles to see if personality correlates to Alzheimer's or longevity. Even more amazing....the brain seems to be able to build new pathways around the pathology!
