Cheese & Alzheimers

As you will see in the study conducted, diet and disease are related.  We are affected by what we eat, for good or bad.

Swiss Cheese: A delicious waxy substance that smells a bit

funny, is filled with holes, and tastes quite delicious,

especially in fondues.

Alzheimer's: That disease of dementia in which neural cells

die, turning human brains into Swiss cheese.

Now revealed: Scientific evidence that Swiss cheese contains

a substance that is positively correlated to Alzheimer's


The building blocks of proteins are amino acids. The one

factor making animal protein so unhealthy for human

consumption is the abundance of sulfur-based amino acids

such as methionine and homocysteine.

 Homocysteine has been linked to heart disease by William

Castelli, senior investigator of the largest clinical heart

study in history, the Framingham Study.

 The key to understanding heart disease is recognizing the

destruction caused by that rotten egg smell of sulfur

infusing throughout one's cardiovascular system.

Osteoporosis occurs as a result of the body's attempt to

neutralize the acid condition caused by the consumption of

foods rich in sulfur. Internal "thermostats" neutralize that

acid by drawing calcium from one's own bones. 

The February 14, 2002 issue of the New England Journal of

Medicine (Volume 346:476-483, Number 7) contains a study

proving that the risk of Alzheimer's Disease doubles for

those people with the highest levels of homocysteine in

their bloodstreams.

Neurologists at the Boston University School of Medicine

obtained blood samples from 1092 elderly healthy subjects

over an eight-year period. During the course of the study,

111 of those subjects developed dementia, diagnosed as

Alzheimer's Disease.

Those who developed Alzheimer's had enormous increases of

homocysteine in their blood when compared to those who did

not develop dementia.

There are 28 amino acids in nature. Your body's liver

manufactures 19 of them. The other 9 are called "essential,"

which means that they must be obtained in the foods you eat.

Methionine is one such "essential" amino acid. After

ingestion, methionine converts to homocysteine.

Animal proteins contain greater amounts of methionine than

do plant proteins. Milk is liquid meat, and dairy products

contain high levels of methionine, which has sulfur as its

center atom. The sulfur converts to sulfates and causes an

acid condition in the blood that results in cellular


Here are some values of methionine for 100 gram portions of

various foods. You will find that a result of consuming

dairy products and/or eating meat creates a methionine-rich

and subsequent homocysteine-rich environment of Alzheimer-

causing substances in human blood serum.


Cow's milk = .083 grams of methionine

Soy milk = .040 grams


Mori-Nu silken soft tofu = .074 grams

Chicken (broiled breast meat, no skin) = .859 grams

Swiss cheese = .784 grams

Parmesan cheese = .958 grams

Cow's milk contains twice as much methionine as does soy

milk. Chicken has nearly 12 times the amount of methionine

as does tofu, and Parmesan cheese has an unlucky 13 times

more methionine than does tofu.

The neurologists who conducted this study did not consider

how or why people have high levels of methionine. Pity. They

were close to determining the cause and cure of Alzheimer's.

These neurologists who published the study in the New

England Journal of Medicine suggest that folic acid reduces

levels of homocysteine. Folic acid can be found in green

leafy vegetables, grains, and fruits, particularly citrus.

However, the best cure may very well be to not eat what

causes the problem.

Scientific research has provided the proof that Alzheimer's

Disease can be controlled or prevented by eliminating the

standard American diet that includes milk and dairy products

as its foundation.
