Georgia Lab Experiments Shows CBD Reduces Plaque And Improves Cognition in Early Onset Alzheimerâs
A two-week course of high doses of CBD helped restore the function of two proteins key to reducing the accumulation of beta-amyloid plaque, a hallmark of Alzheimerâs disease, and improved cognition in an experimental model of early onset familial Alzheimerâsâa form of Alzheimer’s that doctors know for certain is linked to genesâinvestigators report. The proteins […]

Researchers have developed an automated measurement system to assess healthy lifespan using nematodes. This system performs a mini-population analysis to classify specific populations of nematodes based on qualitative differences in lifespan. Since there are many similarities between the mechanisms that determine the lifespan of nematodes and humans, this system could make it easier to develop drugs and find foods that extend the healthy lifespan of humans.
