Against alzheimer: a doctor detoxifies the brain

Against alzheimer: a doctor detoxifies the brain

Dr. Dr. Gosbert weth is a specialist in internal medicine, clinical geriatrics and pain therapy in bad kissingen, germany. He has done research on brain perfusion both in biochemistry and at the uniklinik wurzburg, developing an early diagnostic procedure and a drug against alzheimer’s disease. Now he has published his research in the book "morbus alzheimer: a disease that loses its fright" published. In an interview, he presents his findings.

You have done intensive research on alzheimer’s disease. In your book, you say that the disease is one of the greatest challenges to health policy. Why?
Gosbert weth: the biggest social problem at the moment is alzheimer’s disease. The number of people with dementia is expected to double from 1.2 million today to more than two million in the next ten to 20 years.

Is this trend related to the demographic development, i.E. An aging population in germany??
Yes and no. The disease is on the rise. Among 80-year-olds today, an average of 40 percent are affected by dementia. In a study of 575 centenarians under professor franke in wurzburg in 1980, less than three percent of the centenarians had alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s and dementia were not as prevalent 30 years ago as we know them today.

elections in mozambique as a yardstick for peace in the country

People in southeast african mozambique have chosen their new government amid heightened security measures.

The elections are seen as extremely important for peace in the state with rich natural gas reserves, as the country’s long-enemyed major parties only officially ended their years-long conflict a few weeks ago. The start of voting was initially calm and led to queues at many polling stations, said the head of the EU election observation mission. After polling stations closed, payment began in most places this evening; first results expected friday.

Elections were held for a new president, a parliament and provincial parliaments. The vote is seen as an indicator of how robust peace is in the country. It is the first test of public opinion since the ruling party frelimo and the former rebel group and current opposition party renamo signed a final peace agreement in august. They had been fighting each other for 15 years in a bloody civil war that ended in 1992. Violence has flared up again in the past few years.

The promotion of the bamberg bucks to the bavarian league is perfect

The promotion of the bamberg bucks to the bavarian league is perfect

The FV 1912 stadium was the venue for the semifinals of the american football regional league of bavaria playoffs between the bamberg bucks and the aschaffenburg stallions. The third meeting of the two teams this season was even closer than the first duels (5:0, 12:2 for the bucks), but there was also more at stake: the winner would move into the final and thus make the promotion to the bavarian league perfect.
In front of nearly 400 spectators the bucks started with their offense, which had to end their first drive with a missed field goal. The defense quickly recovered the ball, kicker christoph huth aimed a little more accurately and scored to make it 3:0. The rest of the game was similar until half-time – an attentive defense stopped the guests again and again, and huth scored again with a kick. Before that, the bamberg offense had marched well, but a lack of concentration cost the team a touchdown on two drives. At the break it was 6:0.
After the restart, the stallions fell in love with their passing game and overcame the bucks defense for the first time this year. The aschaffenburg pass catcher allowed himself his second unsportsmanlike conduct during the touchdown and was sent off the field. Thanks to an unsuccessful extra point the score was 6:6. One person in particular was not happy with this score: running back benedikt haderer, who was still active for the guests last year, completed a sparing drive by the bucks offense with a spectacular run in which he shook off several of his old teammates and scored the 13:6 (extra point by huth).
Aschaffenburg did not surrender, but scored, favored by penalties against the bamberg defense, three minutes before the end also again. On the extra point try, things got very exciting: instead of kicking for the equalizer, the guests went for the win and lined up for the two-point conversion: a single chance to push the ball over the line from just under two meters and turn the deficit into a lead. In this game-deciding situation, however, the bucks’ defense showed why it was the best in the league last season, stopping the ball carrier well short of the line. The battle was thus fought, as the offense controlled the ball and the opponent until the final whistle.
The bucks have won promotion to the bavarian league at the first attempt. Saturday, 18. August, it still comes to the final around the national league championship with the also undefeated starnberg argonauts.
