Home Is Burning: the profanity-laced terminal illness memoir with fart jokes | Books | The Guardian
The 300-page memoir jokes about everything: the cruelty of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, which killed Bob Marshall in 2008; the brutal side effects of Debi Marshall’s cancer treatment; the vicious sibling arguments; the pious Mormon neighbours. One unforgettable section details Debi’s declaration that she will perform oral sex on her husband – by then confined to a bed and respirator – daily until he dies. “My mom was beyond proud of the blow-job-a-day goal. I don’t know if it was because she was all fucked up on Fentanly or what, but she seemed to bring it up any chance she got. ‘A blow job a day. Not a bad deal,’ I heard her explain to a visitor. ‘You wouldn’t think it, but his penis is still strong.’”

The Cure for Brain Diseases Is in Your Gut - The Daily Beast
Dr. Christopher B. Forsyth and his team have recently demonstrated significant gut permeability, more commonly referred to as “leaky gut” in Parkinson’s patients. Their research has further revealed that this increase in gut leakiness enhances inflammation as well as the production of a unique protein—alpha-synuclein—both of which are characteristic of this disease. [...] In research headed by Dr. Rongzhen Zhang at the University of California, San Francisco, he and his team discovered that, like the Parkinson’s research had revealed, in ALS there is also an increase in the leakiness of the gut. And again, like in Parkinson’s, their research revealed that this mechanism caused a robust increase in inflammation, a mechanism that has long been known to be associated with ALS. [...] Inflammation, as a mechanism, is thought to underlie virtually every degenerative condition that humans experience—including Alzheimer’s disease, coronary artery disease, diabetes, and even cancer.

Reducing Glycotoxin Intake to Prevent Alzheimers - YouTube
ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease): Fishing for Answers - << neurotoxin produced by all blue green algae types ubiquitous across the world. Is then, through the food chain, transferred to sea foods people consume (fish, oyster, mussels, alligator meat, shrimp, crabs). In the western world, people consuming fish, are consuming the neurotoxin BMAA which was found in all patients of Alzheimers, Dementia, Parkinsons and ALS compared to controlgroup. [Thus one can say that the build-up, plus other factors, are part of the cause and effect, tipping point where the body cant fight/shed the neurotoxin. more research has to be done about dose relevance of said neurotoxin BMAA, bc the dose is more often the poison - ?the build-up till you are +50 and then it's downhill from there?] - follow-up -
