Vitamin B12, Drinking Water Fluoridation, and Alzheimer's Dementia (AD)


Joseph Hattersley has kindly allowed me to send this to the list. This excellent empowering document: On the use of vitamin B12 to prevent and sometimes reverse Alzheimer's, is in peer review for publication in The Journal of Applied Nutrition. Obviously, the document could be altered or rejected.

....B12 deficiency can cause depression, bipolar-1 disorder (manic depressive) and more commonly bipolar-2 (cyclothymic personality). Psychotic forms of depression have been particularly associated with B12 deficiency; it has also been linked to paranoid psychoses and chronic fatigue syndrome; weakened immunity leading to susceptibility to cancer and recurrent infections; asthma, disrupted sleep/wake rhythms, environmental illness, low stress tolerance, osteoporosis, AIDS, premature aging, and multiple sclerosis -- as well as increasing risk of cardiovascular disease and much more by hindering remethylation of homocysteine into methionine. In numerous cases, violent behavior disappeared.

The findings conflict with conventional drug-oriented psychiatrists' self-serving assumption that the brain, like some sort of black box, is unaffected by diet and environment. What other single measure offers at least a degree of protection against so much? And at such low cost?

These data are precisely, what the Pharma Cartel are so affaid off hence their CODEX initiative. Please "Check out ANH’s web site http://www.alliance-natural-health.org where you will find their detailed strategy which deals both with the FSD and the other Directives. I urge you to join them and make a donation via their website (accepts credit cards) to help their lawsuit which is likely to prove very costly, and must be filed by July. ANH is doing an excellent job and should be supported in every way possible. Along with the lawsuit to overturn the EU Food Supplements Directive, ANH must keep lobbying in the EU against the Traditional Herbal Medicines Directive and for amendments to the Pharmaceuticals Directive. You can email Robert Verkerk or David Hinde for further information at info@alliance-natural-health.org." For moer info click on the CODEX initative above.

"...On vitamin B12. John V. Dommisse, MD, practicing medicine in Tucson, Arizona, has confirmed that Alzheimer's disease appears to result from too-low serum vitamin B12; its repletion succeeds despite other risk factors. "Most cases of Alzheimer's dementia are actually missed B12 deficiency cases because of the too-low normal range for B12."1 U.S. clinical laboratories regard 200 pg/ml (trillionths of a gram per milliliter) as the lower range of normal. That low limit was set with hematologic criteria, not neuropsychiatric criteria, which have now become much more critical.

The normal range for serum B12 should be 600 to 2,000 pg/ml. In Japan the "normal" range is 500-1,300 pg/ml; this may explain why Japan has such a low rate of Alzheimer's dementia, compared to the United States. Mammals including humans are born with serum levels about 2,000 pg/ml, which gradually decline throughout life.1 Below 550 to 600 pg/ml, deficiencies start to appear in the cerebrospinal fluid. On the basis here suggested, nearly all elderly must be B12 deficient.....

....High-dose vitamin B12 might well prevent Alzheimer's disease. 2,000 to 2,500 ug sublingually after breakfast and supper works as successfully as monthly to quarterly one-milliliter IM injection -- apparently by a non-intrinsic factor mechanism. Inexpensive tablets of that size are available at American health food stores, (not soon if the CODEX initative is passed on to the US as is planned - CG) IM vials from pharmacies by prescription. Compliance was better using oral intake -- patients didn't always get to the doctor's office for their injections in a timely manner....

Causes of B12 deficiency include excessive long-term use of antibiotics and other drugs to mask symptoms; oral antibiotics destroy the "good" bugs in the gut as well as the "bad," ruining absorption. B12 deficiency, common with folate deficiency in dementia, worsens with folate deficiency. Other possible causes of dementia: subclinical hypothyroidism, zinc deficiency and copper toxicity, often from copper in water pipes; chronic overuse of antacids, both OTC and prescribed. Excessive use of alcohol promotes vitamin excretion. Mercury was found in the brains of 83 randomly chosen accident victims with amalgam fillings.

Dr. Dommisse does not reveal the proportion of his patients who are thyroid deficient, drink fluoridated water, have extensive dental amalgams, take Ibuprofen, etc. Correcting each/all of these sources of B12 deficiency seems unlikely to effect permanent reversal of dementia unless B12 is repleted and maintained at high level. This seems to do the trick, regardless....

....AD is observed in 30- to 40-year old Canadians who consume fluoridated water. "A number of people in Seattle, WA, between the ages of 40 and 60 with symptoms associated with early-onset Alzheimer's (memory loss, confusion, difficulty concentrating) and pains in kidneys and back - symptoms of chronic fluoride poisoning - after two to three months of avoiding all sources of fluorine (particularly water and toothpaste), were restored to full functioning."

Many assume that the genetic risk of Alzheimer's disease is "hard-wired," making the disease inevitable. "But any inherited disease or trait that has a serious impact on fitness must fade over time, because the genes that spell it out will be passed on to fewer and fewer individuals. Therefore, common illnesses with severe fitness costs are unlikely to have a genetic cause.""

Interesting question. How much fluoride is contained in health supplements & pharma drugs if they are using Fluoridated water? The fluoride yahoo group would love to see an investigation into this one. People that are allergic to fluoride need to know.

thanks nb

My mother died a year ago aged 91 years. She had been receiving 12 weekly B12 injections for pernicious anaemia and thyroxine medication for about 12 years prior to her death. My mother had Alzheimers disease for about the last five years of her life. Reading recent info re low levels of B12 and under performing thyroid gland give me a clue as why she ended her days with Alzheimers.

I was tested back in june and my B-12 was at 213. I had five injections of B-12 in a period of one month and now is at 390. Should I keep getting injection or should I look into it. Also, at night I get numb hands and tingling in my toes sometimes numbness, is that because of B-12 defeciency. My Hematologist said that it has nothing to do with the b-12. But, when I had the injection I was better, now I started to get the symptoms again. What do you think is normal range? I am 41 years old.

Response:

In Japan and some European countries is 500-550 pg/mL, the levels associated with psychological and behavioral manifestations such as dementia and memory loss. Physicians in these countries consider blood levels of 500-1300 to be the normal range.
