Default Green tea

http://www.idw-online.de/pages/de/news262889

here's the headline of the article, but be sure to read the whole thing for the very interesting details...

"The substance ECGC (Epigallocatechin-3-gallate) from green tea can redirect the deadly process which leads to the accumulation of protein aggregates in Parkinson`s and Alzheimer`s disease. EGCG modulates a cascade of protein misfolding in such a way that the formation of deadly plaques is interrupted, and harmless protein structures emerge instead. Researchers of the Max Delbrueck Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) Berlin-Buch, a national research laboratory of the Helmholtz Association in Germany have made this discovery in the test tube and in cell models. The research of Dr. Dagmar Ehrnhoefer and Dr. Jan Bieschke of Professor Erich Wanker`s laboratory in Berlin-Buch has now been published in the journal Nature Structural and Molecular Biology"

My understanding is that PD is really only definitively diagnosed by autopsy where they are able to determine whether there are Lewy Bodies (being the misfolded proteins, if I understand it correctly) in the brain-if so, then you did have PD. (If I'm wrong on any of this, please let me know).

So I think this is significant, and in my mind, may relate somehow to the success that Cogane has had in primate models in reversing the disease. Maybe Cogane is some type of tea elixir, since it is made by Phytopharm and they use botannicals.

Thumbs Up

That's a great thought LFAC...
So much to do , so little time. I met them [phytopharm ]at BIO in Boston over a year ago. THey approached our table [PDF, PDTRIALS.org. and PIPELINE]. They've come a long way and think this could be GDNF producing. Rick that's what you asked in another thread - there's the answer. But it's not available that i know of. As for green tea - that's been going on forever.

OK ..please help. I'm going to BIO in June. I am going to try to ask many individuals current questions and if they will allow me, record them answering . If you have a good question, relevant to something that everyone is shooting for now in an all around manner. . Legislation - FDA - NIH - DEPT Of DEFENSE - business oriented but this time around they are going to get it right. We need to turn Big pharma into the dinosaur it has become - and retrain the people to think and perform with honesty. They still don't quite see the need for us, but eventually, they will realize what is missing to keep them honest.

PM me with your questions, i hope you do send some well thought out but on topic questions about timelines, safety, change, let's start now, etc., trust, why should I get to ask all of my questions/ wel if that's what you want ......lol
