In research recently published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology, the group takes a closer look at how the spray from showers, sinks and toilets can expose us to the bacteria responsible for the most waterborne disease outbreaks in the country.

It may even restore memory to cells already affected.

This is big news for brain health.

A few days ago in the journal Cell Reports, investigators reported that molecules were identified that could interfere with the progression of healthy brain prion protein cells, to those with Alzheimer’s or other brain degenerative disease (1).

Amyloid beta peptides portions of a larger protein that has broken off and become diseased and destructive.
