A study led by Professor Suzanne de la Monte, one of the worlds leading Alzheimer’s researchers, has found ”a substantial link” between the disease and increased levels of nitrites and nitrates in processed foods, soils and water.
Professor de la Monte, a pathologist at the Rhode Island hospital in the United States, said the rising rate of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease and diabetes in the US mirrored king of thieves cheats “classic trends of exposure-related disease” and could not be explained by genetic factors.
Her findings are published in the July 2009 issue of The Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.
“If this hypothesis is correct, potential solutions include eliminating the use of nitrites and nitrates in food processing, preservation and agriculture,” she said.

More than moviestarplanet hack cheats 90 percent of these compounds that have been tested have been determined to be carcinogenic in various organs. They are found in many food products (they are added to foods as a preservative, to kill bacteria and to enhance colour) including fried bacon, cured meats and cheese products as well as beer and water.
