      EDITORIAL

      'The idea that Alzheimer's is entirely genetic and unpreventable is perhaps the Greatest misconception about the disease,' says Gary Small, M.D., director of The UCLA Center on Aging. Researchers now know that Alzheimer's, like heart Disease and cancer, develops over decades and can be influenced by lifestyle Factors including cholesterol, blood pressure, obesity, depression, education, Nutrition, sleep and mental, physical and social activity.

      The big news: Mountains of research reveals that simple things you do every day might cut your odds of losing your mind to Alzheimer's.

      In search of scientific ways to delay and outlive Alzheimer's and other
      Dementias, I tracked down thousands of studies and interviewed dozens of experts. The results in a new book: 100 Simple Things You Can Do to Prevent Alzheimer's and Age-Related Memory Loss (Little, Brown; $19.99).

      Here are 10 strategies I found most surprising.

      1. Have coffee. In an amazing flip-flop, coffee is the new brain tonic. A
      large European study showed that drinking three to five cups of coffee a day in Midlife cut Alzheimer's risk 65% in late life. University of South Florida Researcher Gary Arendash credits caffeine: He says it reduces
      dementia-causing amyloid in animal brains. Others credit coffee's
      antioxidants. So drink up, Arendash advises, unless your doctor says you shouldn't.

      2. Floss. Oddly, the health of your teeth and gums can help predict
      dementia. University of Southern California research found that having
      periodontal disease before age 35 quadrupled the odds of dementia years later. Older people with tooth and gum disease score lower on memory and cognition tests, other studies show. Experts speculate that inflammation i diseased mouths migrates to the brain.

      3.Google. Doing an online search can stimulate your aging brain even more than reading a book, says UCLA's Gary Small, who used brain MRIs to prove it. The biggest surprise: Novice Internet surfers, ages 55 to 78, activated key memory and learning centers in the brain after only a week of Web surfing for an hour a day.

      4. Grow new brain cells. Impossible, scientists used to say. Now it's
      believed that thousands of brain cells are born daily. The trick is to keep the newborns Alive. What works: aerobic exercise (such as a brisk 30-minute walk every day), strenuous mental activity, eating salmon and other fatty fish, and avoiding obesity, chronic stress, sleep deprivation, heavy drinking and vitamin B deficiency.

      5. Drink apple juice. Apple juice can push production of the 'memory
      chemical' acetylcholine; that's the way the popular Alzheimer's drug Aricept works, says Thomas Shea, Ph.D., of the University of Massachusetts. He was surprised that old mice given apple juice did better on learning and memory tests than mice that received water. A dose for humans: 16 ounces, or two to three apples a day.

      6. Protect your head. Blows to the head, even mild ones early in life,
      increase odds of dementia years later. Pro football players have 19 times the typical rate of memory-related diseases. Alzheimer's is four times more common in elderly who suffer a head injury, Columbia University finds. Accidental falls doubled an older person's odds of dementia five years later in another study. Wear seat belts and helmets, fall-proof your house, and don't take risks.

      7. Meditate. Brain scans show that people who meditate regularly have less cognitive decline and brain shrinkage - a classic sign of Alzheimer's - as they age. Andrew Newberg of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine says yoga meditation of 12 minutes a day for two months improved blood flow and cognitive functioning in seniors with memory problems.

      8. Take D. A 'severe deficiency' of vitamin D boosts older Americans' risk of Cognitive impairment 394%, an alarming study by England's University of Exeter finds. And most Americans lack vitamin D. Experts recommend a daily dose of 800 IU to 2,000 IU of vitamin D3.

      9. Fill your brain. It's called 'cognitive reserve.' A rich accumulation of life experiences - education, marriage, socializing, a stimulating job, language skills, having a purpose in life, physical activity and mentally demanding leisure activities - makes your brain better able to tolerate plaques and tangles. You can even have significant Alzheimer's pathology and no symptoms of dementia if you have high cognitive reserve, says David Bennett, M.D., of Chicago's Rush University Medical Center.

      10. Avoid infection. Astonishing new evidence ties Alzheimer's to cold sores, gastric ulcers, Lyme disease, pneumonia and the flu. Ruth Itzhaki, Ph.D., of the University of Manchester in England estimates the cold-sore herpes simplex virus is incriminated in 60% of Alzheimer's cases. The theory: Infections trigger excessive beta amyloid 'gunk' that kills brain cells. Proof is still lacking, but why not avoid common infections and take appropriate vaccines, antibiotics and antiviral agents?

      What to Drink for Good Memory
      A great way to keep your aging memory sharp and avoid Alzheimer's is to drink the right stuff.

      a. Tops: Juice. A glass of any fruit or vegetable juice three times a week slashed Alzheimer's odds 76% in Vanderbilt University research. Especially protective:blueberry, grape and apple juice, say other studies.

      b. Tea: Only a cup of black or green tea a week cut rates of cognitive decline in older people by 37%, reports the Alzheimer's Association. Only brewed tea works. Skip bottled tea, which is devoid of antioxidants.

      c. Caffeine beverages. Surprisingly, caffeine fights memory loss and Alzheimer's, suggest dozens of studies. Best sources: coffee (one Alzheimer's researcher drinks five cups a day), tea and chocolate. Beware caffeine if you are pregnant, have high blood pressure, insomnia or anxiety.

      d. Red wine: If you drink alcohol, a little red wine is most apt to benefit your aging brain. It's high in antioxidants. Limit it to one daily glass for women, two for men. Excessive alcohol, notably binge drinking, brings on Alzheimer's.

      e. Two to avoid: Sugary soft drinks, especially those sweetened with high fructose corn syrup. They make lab animals dumb. Water with high copper content also can up your odds of Alzheimer's. Use a water filter that removes excess minerals.

      5 Ways to Save Your Kids from Alzheimer's Now Alzheimer's isn't just a disease that starts in old age. What happens to your child's brain seems to have a dramatic impact on his or her likelihood of Alzheimer's many decades later.

      Here are five things you can do now to help save your child from Alzheimer's and memory loss later in life, according to the latest research.

      1. Prevent head blows: Insist your child wear a helmet during biking, skating, skiing, baseball, football, hockey, and all contact sports. A major blow as well as tiny repetitive unnoticed concussions can cause damage, leading to memory loss and Alzheimer's years later.

      2 Encourage language skills: A teenage girl who is a superior writer is eight times more likely to escape Alzheimer's in late life than a teen with poor linguistic skills. Teaching young children to be fluent in two or more languages makes them less vulnerable to Alzheimer's.

      3. Insist your child go to college: Education is a powerful Alzheimer's deterrent. The more years of formal schooling, the lower the odds. Most Alzheimer's prone: teenage drop outs. For each year of education, your risk of dementia drops 11%, says a recent University of Cambridge study.

      4. Provide stimulation: Keep your child's brain busy with physical, mental and social activities and novel experiences. All these contribute to a bigger, better functioning brain with more so-called 'cognitive reserve.' High cognitive reserve protects against memory decline and Alzheimer's.

      5. Spare the junk food: Lab animals raised on berries, spinach and high omega-3 fish have great memories in old age. Those overfed sugar, especially high fructose in soft drinks, saturated fat and trans fats become overweight and diabetic, with smaller brains and impaired memories as they age, a prelude to Alzheimer's.

      7) GUARDIAN ANGELS AND DONATIONS

      Hello Everyone

      My name is Shaun Truman, my wife and I have a big problem, our son Christopher who is 4 months old was admitted into hospital and after a scan was diagnosed with a heart defect (something like a drain is draining into the wrong artery) it is a very complex operation to fix it and can only be done in South Africa. He is on oxygen all the time and can only be moved by a medical air craft and there must be a medic there at all times. The major problems are that it must be done as soon as possible and is very expensive, we really need donations or help in any way possible to get this done. I am asking anybody that can help or who knows anyone that can help to please contact myself or my wife Debbie.

      To airlift him to Jo'burg will cost $11 000.00 and the operation will cost $55 000.00. Please any assistance we can get will go a long way. I will post pictures and if possible a video of him as soon as I can. If you need any more information please feel free to contact myself or Debbie.

      Thank you

      BULAWAYO ISLAND HOSPICE SERVICE is in need of your help!
      Island Hospice has served the Bulawayo community for 32 years and currently has over
      180 beneficiaries on their database. Over the years we have tended to thousands of
      people requiring Palliative Care and have always existed thanks to the kindness of donors
      We receive no grant from either Government or Municipality and there is no international
      funding forthcoming.

      We are appealing to all business houses, NGO's and individuals to come to our assistance
      as the Hospice is in desperate need of funding. Should the current trend persist, we will
      have to reduce our service to our beneficiaries with effect from May 2012.

      We do have a number of fund raising initiatives planned for this year - the first of which is
      the Hornung Park Golf Day on Saturday 12th May 2012. If you would like to participate or
      sponsor a hole at $200, please contact us. There will be worthwhile prizes available!

      Our annual school 'Tackie Day' will take place in June - this is an event that brings much
      joy to the children and their support is very much appreciated

      We will be advertising events as the year progresses.

      Your valued support will be gratefully received and acknowledged by
      Anita Dick on email hospicebyo@... or on tel 77972.

      Neil and Sue Todd wish all their friends, and all those with whom their paths have crossed, farewell as they leave for Harare. We hope you will forgive this informal goodbye but both time and emotions dictate this is the best way. Margaret Kriels' last editorial says it all - Bulawayo is an incredible city! We thank you for your kind and warm welcome on our arrival twelve years ago, we have loved every minute of our life with you. When the wheel has turned the full circle we will be back to celebrate with you all!! God Bless

      Just a short update - there have been five cases of sleeping sickness in the Zambezi Valley in recent weeks. People visiting the Valley should be aware of this and should watch for any symptoms when they get back. Gestation period is about a week - may be longer. The bite of the Tsetse fly is characterised by a raised weal which can become inflamed. First symptoms are a loss of energy and get up and go, followed by classical Malaria symptoms - temperature, sweating, feeling cold despite this, headaches.

      If you experience these symptoms you should arrange to see your doctor, explain where you have been and that you may have been bitten. The doctor should take a blood sample and test for both malaria and Trypanosomyasis (Sleeping Sickness). If you have the latter then the Doctor must notify the authorities with details of where you have been in the past few weeks and the medicine is available free from UNICEF but must be administered in a hospital under constant supervision.

      The Chairman of NAU Charara, Mike Brennan, would like to put out the following statement regarding the recent crocodile attack at NAU Charara.

      Two people staying at Charara were walking ankle deep in the water on the shore line near the boat launching area at 9 o'clock in the evening. One of them was attacked by a crocodile but managed to free himself with the help of his friend. Sadly, the friend was then taken by another croc and disappeared. National Parks have found evidence of the body in the Charara bay area.

      This is the second attack within the last month. Please everyone be warned to be vigilant near the water?s edge at all times. It is dangerous no matter where you are on the lake.

      Our condolences go out to the family.

      Bulawayo Motoring Club Bulletin
      The second leg of the main circuit national championship was held in Harare on 6 May and a contingent of Bulawayo drivers and riders travelled the seriously road-blocked distance to compete.

      The event was very well supported by Harare competitors and saw a full days racing, with two national car events, superbike demos, Megellis scratch races, clubman demos and several handicap events for cars and bikes.

      The 'Bulawayo team' comprised of Sonny Young in a Sports 2000, Darren Winterboer in a BMW and Denzil Bhana in the infamous 'Bruce Glasby Mini', Fuzzy Walker on his Kawasaki ZX10R, Ian Gutherless on a 350 RD and Dave Mouat competing in two separate classes with his Megelli and Yamaha RD350 superbike. The day was a great success for the Matabeles and enjoyed by all concerned. Bulawayo showed its real colours with our warm nature and competitor talents and came home with several trophies.

      In the national car races Darren Winterboer walked away with second place behind the Subaru of Ian Howden, having not changed set up from Bulawayo, which can be compromising due the Harare circuit being much tighter than Bulawayo. Sonny Young came 4th in the nationals behind the local lotus's and is now geared up for improving times. In the main Toyota handicap race Darren came second to Richard Robinson in Gary Kirk's Lotus and Sonny took third place. A very close race with a few hair raising moments when Darren almost rode over a lotus and was airborne for far longer than he was comfortable with and Sonny doing a few of his farming tricks in the Essess. Unfortunately Denzil Bhana struggled the whole day with tyre issues due to the small rims on the mini and the abrasive track, wearing his tyres down to canvas after only two races.

      In the bikes Fuzzy Walker came home with a 5th and 2nd place in his races and legend rider Dave Mouat 4th in the Megellis scratch races, coming in behind the three Whyte competitors (legends in their own respects) and 3rd in the handicap races. Ian Gutherless had a lot of fun in the superbike demos but unfortunately the 350 cc cycle was not quite as quick as the bigger superbikes. Talk is that the One Hour bike endurance to be held on 1 December this year will be a RACE and not a demo.....at last!!!

      So all in all a fantastic weekend was had by all. Thanks to Harare for a very warm welcome and a really great weekend. We will see you again at the end of June for the next leg of the main circuit nationals. Congrats to all the Bulawayo competitors for carrying the Matabele flag so well.....you did us proud. Thanks for an awesome racing weekend!
