On 10 July 2017 The Guardian reported:
Prolonged periods of poor sleep increase levels of proteins involved in Alzheimer's disease, research suggests ... While previous research has revealed that bad sleep can increase levels of these proteins, known as beta-amyloid and tau, it was unclear which aspect of shut-eye was behind the uptick. Now researchers say that poor sleep quality, and disruption of the deep, restful sleep known as slow-wave sleep, both play a key role. '[The study] shows specifically that slow wave sleep, or deep sleep, is important for lowering the levels of amyloid overnight,' said Yo-El Ju, a neurologist at Washington University in St Louis, Missouri, and a co-author of the research. 'We think that not getting good sleep chronically over the years would increase the risk of the amyloid and tau clumping up and causing Alzheimer's disease.'
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern health systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
'It's one of the first studies showing a biological link between sleep and generating the proteins involved in Alzheimer's disease in humans,' said Tara Spires-Jones, interim director of the Centre for Cognitive and Neural Systems at the University of Edinburgh, who was not involved in the research.
