Alzheimer’s and Peanut Butter
Maybe you heard me talking about this on the air. A grad student at the University of Florida has come up with a SIMPLE way to possibly confirm Alzheimer's diagnoses. How simple? Peanut Butter.
That's right, Peanut Butter.
I'm a huge Peanut Butter fan. I love it on sandwiches, on toast, or even right out of the jar.(if my wife isn't looking of course)
That's when I saw this article it caught my attention. That's one of the things I love about Peanut Butter. The Smell! But check this out, something as simple as Peanut Butter could be part of a test to diagnose or predict Alzheimer's.
If patients had difficulty smelling peanut butter in one nostril over the other, they most likely had the disease, graduate student Jennifer Stamps and her colleagues discovered.
It's hard to imagine that something this simple could be possible. I know too many people and families that are either dealing with Alzheimer's today. Read the report. Then check back with us here and share this story with your friends.
