Fronto-temporal dementia is very often misdiagnosed as Alzheimer's disease. What is scary about this is that the treatment required for the two disorders is completely different and treating someone with fronto-temporal as an Alzheimer's patient will result in severe, irreversible brain damage to the patient. This recently happened to one of my wife's relatives, who is now pretty much a vegetable.

If a physician, who is not an expert in Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia, diagnoses a loved one with the disease, seek an expert opinion before beginning treatment.

You can tell them it fights aging, you can tell them that it helps lose weight and you can tell them that it prevents dementia but once you are married they just aren't going to do that.

From TFA:

Dr Farese and his team showed how a protein called progranulin prevents a class of cells called microglia from becoming 'hyperactive.

It is a very specific chemical and has nothing to do with steak.

Try not to eat steak in front of a cow. It's considered rude.

We eat some proteins and use them directly for bodily processes. We eat others and break them down to component amino acids that are rebuilt into certain other proteins needed for bodily processes. We can't really store them for future use, so it really does come down to eating steak.

The protein in question, progranulin isn't found in steak, so I'm confused as to how that's what it comes down to.

you can even tell them that it cures morning sickness (if you were the poor schlub that knocked her up), and she's still going to go all meatloaf and say, i wouldn't do that.

That is to say, even if it's not specifically found in steak, it's probably built by our bodies from the basic amino acids found in steak. Every protein molecule in our body is ingested at some point. Where else would it come from?

Did some Googling on progranulin, found some studies that suggest higher levels of it are related to obesity, so now we'll have saved some lives but increased the obese population. SCIENCE!

Add in the brain damage done by excessively low fat diets, and you pretty much have the reason why vegans are angry all the time.

//Seriously, though, I've been saying a while our obsession with low body fat with no regard to appropriate levels of strength is going to be found to be the direct cause of what we consider "old age" related disease eventually.

That's because of how the body reacts to running out of carbohydrates. You need to power hydrate to keep your moods steady.

We're starving ourselves to be thin, when it's clear that people aren't getting the right levels of some nutrition that they need. I think you're right and that our fat-phobia will be found to be starving our brains and making us so dumb we believe articles on Huffington Post.

bonus - protein in general (not sure which one in specific) also causes cell death, so you die younger.

So you can grow old and lose your mind, or die young. your choice.

FTD is a largely genetic disease. Deficiency in progranulin has nothing to do with how much protein (amino acids) you eat as much as your body's ability to produce it. Ofcourse if you don't eat any protein, you can't produce protein, but you'll die from other things long before you can develop FTD.

Not an excellent point. I think you're probably making a leap, here. Tfa says nothing about diet. Nothing.

I could go for a good steak, though. I'm just not going to pretend it has anything to do with dementia.

Just drink a gallon of milk a day, and lift daily. Health solved.

/also setting straight a previous thread, Mark Rippetoe =/= Crossfit
//REAL lifting, proper heavy squats/deadlifts/etc.

Before the PETA bashing starts, TFA states that it's not overall dietary protein that's the problem. It's the deficiency of a specific protein.
