The Fungus Link to Both Diabetes and Dementia

Diabetes And Dementia
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Twenty years ago, Dr David Holland and I wrote an entire book on this subject.  Further, a decade ago, I broached this very topic in blog form.  As you may already know, I believe that proper lifestyle can delay or even prevent disease.  The allopathic model however believes in “preventive medicine,” or using a medicine to prevent disease.  With so many side effects to their medications, I’ve opted for the former throughout my life. But this is a medical website, so obviously, they are looking to find new uses for old drugs and purportedly, this is what they have done. This report (1) reviews the potential of repurposing a diabetes drug called pioglitazone to prevent dementia, while simultaneously treating diabetes. Those who took this drug, also called Actos, had a 16% lower risk of developing all-cause dementia. While we, the patients want to know the cause of our diseases, including dementia, the pharmaceutical companies, since this drug has already existed for a long time, see a goose laying golden eggs, that can now be prescribed to well people, a’la statin medications, to manage high cholesterol, to perhaps prevent some cases of dementia.

Actos has antifungal properties. While certain common dietary fungi produce poisons that are known to disrupt the human endocrine system, perhaps inducing diabetes, others, like common antibiotics, are neurotoxic and can give rise to dementia (2).

Are you actively living an antifungal lifestyle?
