Alzheimer's gene 'diabetes link'

"Scientists say they have identified a possible genetic link between diabetes and Alzheimer's disease.

It has been known for some time that people with diabetes have a much higher risk of developing Alzheimer's, but not why this is so.

Now US researchers writing in Genetics say a study of worms has indicated a known Alzheimer's gene also plays a role in the way insulin is processed.

Dementia experts said more work in humans was now needed."

Eww reminds me of that story of the guy that LOVED sushi.

Turned out he ate so much over the years a bacteria had started to grow in his brain which in turn hatched small worms. They started to eat their way out.

Probably why he complained of headaches a lot

However it is an Urban Myth ;)
