Heilsame Handystrahlung?.

Anm.: Gibt es Handys bald auf Rezept? Dann hätt´ ich gern ein iPh*ne!

Alzheimer's disease (AD) research indicates that accumulation of amyloid-beta (Aβ) protein plaques in the brain is central to the development of AD.

viaNeuroimaging may shed light on how Alzheimer’s disease develops.


Soluble amyloid-beta precursor protein (sAPP)  plays an important role in the epidermal melanin-unit as an epidermal growth factor stimulating melanin production in melanocytes and the transfer to keratinocytes. In the end – AD also a daylight deficiency disease?

(NaturalNews) A nutrient found in grapes, green tea and cocoa could have a significant impact on the brain cell damage that leads to Alzheimer’s disease, according to the results of a new study carried out by scientists at Kings College, London (UK).

Dementia Slowed by Light Therapy

This article ends with the statement, that „light therapy is completely non-invasive“. This is an opinion which is waiting for a scientific proof. Recent research could show that light has an impact on the endocrine system and the integrity of the retinal metabolism and function, especially in elder individuals. Therefore light is NOT non-invasive!
