Hidden Culprits in Alzheimer's Disease

The short-and long-term impact of airborne iron-rich strongly magnetic combustion-derived nanoparticles (CDNPs) present in the young brains were studied by a research team at the University of Montana, Universidad del Valle de Mexico, Instituto Nacional de Pediatria, Boise State and Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico. The research team documented the abundant combustion nanoparticles in neurons, glial cells, choroid plexus and neurovascular units of Mexico City children, teens and young adults who were exposed to concentrations above the US-EPA standards for fine particular matter by using transmission electron microscopy.
