A Spanish Professor discovers the relationship fungi-Alzheimer´s
03 December 2015 @ 11:04

      I have just found a very interesting video, about a great discovery by a Spanish Professor:  Luis Carrasco has discovered that fungi in brain are related to Alzheimer´s. If you want to watch this video, please click below:

Voice in off: “This Professor of Microbiology became blind, twenty years ago; they failed to tell the cause, but he found, by himself, that a fungal infection was to blame. Since then, he believed that fungi are also associated with Alzheimer´s --and he has just proved it--".

Luis Carrasco (a Professor, at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid): ”What we have seen is that, in the brains of dead people with Alzheimer's, have a clear infection, by fungi, in different parts of the brain”

Voice in off: “For that, in this laboratory, there have been fourteen brains of people, who died from Alzheimer's and other as people, who died for other reasons”

A doctor: “In the brain with Alzheimer´s, there is a fungal infection”

Voice in off: “The fungi found, in the brains of Alzheimer's patients, are fungi that normally have in the intestinal or buccal mucosa; for any reason, they cut in the brain and infect it”

Luis Carrasco: “Maybe, it could be that, through the olfactory nerve, is distributed to the entorhinal cortex, first, then the hippocampus and to other parts of the brain”

Angela Alcover  (Voice in off): “This finding has been published in the international journal "Scientific Report". This Professor believes that his research opens the door to further, about the causes of Alzheimer's, and calls for some laboratory, bigger, make clinical trials, with medicines, against fungal infections”.

      Well, I think this is a very big step forwards, in the fight against the Alzheimer´s. I hope that scientists are able to end this disease someday.

      Until my next post, kind regards,

Luis.
