Wasserman Professor and Chair of the Department of Health Policy & Management in the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, added, however, that "because only low-income women were studied, it isn't clear to what extent the results would apply to higher-income women, to men or to non-Australians." Higher Alzheimer's Risk In Blacks Linked To Gene A new gene mutation has been identified that nearly doubles African Americans' risk for getting Alzheimer's disease, according to a large, government-funded report released this week. A mutation in the gene ABCA7, which is involved in producing cholesterol and lipids, has led researchers to believe that there could be multiple causes of Alzheimer's, the most common form of dementia. "The first thing this tells us is there are probably many different ways to get Alzheimer's," study author, Richard Mayeux, chair of the department of neurology at Columbia University Medical Center, New York, told USA Today. "It might be like some forms of cancer where the type of cancer you have dictates the type of treatment you receive." Treatments that lower cholesterol and lipids may potentially be an effective way to reduce or delay Alzheimer's in patients with the gene variant, Mayeux added.

Is education about increasing earning power?
Id say thats much too mercenary. Should theyand webe thinking about the kinds of skills and knowledge theyll require in their adult lives? Id say thats dealing with reality. The good news is that research in the science of learning suggests that one choice we dont need to make is between a rich, rigorous, engaging education, and an education that prepares students for flourishing careers: these things are one and the same.
