    B12 drops Alzheimer's risk

    Save your brain: Grill a steak.

    Yet another study has found that vitamin B12 can lower your Alzheimer's risk -- and since you can't get this key nutrient from bunny chow, find yourself a good butcher now.

    He can do more for your health than most doctors ever will!

    Swedish researchers tracked 271 Finnish patients between the ages of 65 and 71 who didn't have any sign of Alzheimer's disease at the start of the study.

    Over seven years, 17 of them came down with the condition -- and the researchers found that those with the lowest levels of B12 had the highest risk.

    Each increase in blood B12 levels by a single tiny unit -- called a "picomole" -- led to a 2 percent dip in Alzheimer's risk, according to the study in Neurology. What's more, the researchers found that every micromolar rise in the inflammation marker homocysteine upped Alzheimer's risk by 16 percent.

    Since B12 is known to lower those homocysteine levels, you'd have to be a card-carrying PETA activist not to see the answer here: Steak, steak and more steak, because it's loaded with the stuff.

    Just make sure you serve them so rare you can practically hear the moo, because well-done steaks can actually boost those homocysteine levels.

    This isn't the first study to find that B vitamins can beat Alzheimer's -- I've been recommending B6, B12, and folic acid as the ultimate dementia defeaters for years now.

    Recent studies back me up on that -- researchers have even found that those three Bs can actually stop your brain from shrinking, a key risk factor for dementia.

    Since B vitamins can also boost your mood, fight depression, improve your memory, and help keep your heart strong, there's no reason not to make every night steak night.

  2. Zinc the link for pneumonia prevention

    Vegans aren't just missing out on good health... there's now solid evidence that a meat-free lifestyle can leave seniors open to pneumonia and even death.

    That's because while you won't find the answer to colds, the flu and pneumonia in mainstream meds or vaccines... you will find it in zinc-rich foods such as steak, liver and oysters -- and a new study confirms what I've been saying about this miraculous mineral for years.

    Researchers have been keeping tabs on 600 elderly residents of 33 nursing homes in the Boston area who were given supplements with half the recommended amounts of essential vitamins and nutrients.

    Those with normal levels of zinc in the blood were 50 percent less likely to develop pneumonia, and needed fewer antibiotics when they did get sick. They even had a lower death rate, according to the study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

    Big Pharma's vaccine peddlers only WISH they could make those claims about their injections!

    Zinc has also been known to help keep colds at bay and limit the damage when you do get them -- although makers of zinc-based supplements who try to point that out often run afoul of the FDA.

    They've got drug companies to protect, after all!

    Just remember -- the seniors who got the boost simply had normal levels of zinc, and that's all you need as well. Since too much zinc can actually do more harm than good, visit a doc who can check your levels before you consider adding a supplement.

    For most people, that's overkill -- because you can get all the zinc you need from a steady diet of natural meats.

    And gents, since proper zinc will also help keep your pistol loaded and ready for action, there's even more of a reason to order oysters tonight.

  3. Water for the price of steak

    But the normal rules don't apply in the meat industry -- heck, the meat industry gets to write its own rules -- so most consumers don't know that 90 percent of all pork, 30 percent of chicken and 15 percent of beef are plumped up with brine.
  4. Fat feels good

    A new study finds that nothing can raise spirits quite like fats -- but naturally, the media managed to botch the story completely, giving credit to the worst sorts of junk food.
  5. Shake away diabetes?

    I've seen oodles of wack-a-doodle diabetes treatments in my time -- but this one takes the shake. I mean "shake" and not "cake" because that's what you'll get on this daffy new plan: diet shakes, and not much else.

    Yet another new study finds that vitamin B12 can lower your Alzheimer's risk...
  7. High Steaks in the Cancer Crapshoot

    In past Daily Doses, I've often extolled the upsides of organically reared beef, but perhaps have only touched on (instead of hammering in) many of the downsides of NOT seeking the most natural variety of this truly healthy health food. Until now, that is.
