Hallmarks of Alzheimer's Are Stimulated by This Substance

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • Using nucleotide photoaffinity labeling technology, Boyd Haley, Ph.D., showed mercury is the only heavy metal capable of causing a normal brain to develop the same biochemical abnormalities found in Alzheimer’s disease
  • The enzyme creatine kinase is 98 percent inhibited in Alzheimer’s patients, and tubulin is inhibited by more than 80 percent
  • Mercury causes the synaptic clefts to disappear and triggers the formation of neurofibrillary tangles, a major diagnostic hallmark of Alzheimer’s, by causing abnormal hyperphosphorylation of tau
  • The chelating compound Haley developed, called emeramide or NBMI, tightly binds to mercury and expels it through your stool
  • Phase I and Phase II drug trials has shown emeramide significantly lowers mercury burden in animals and humans; the drug is still going through the approval process; it is designated as an orphan drug for use as a mercury chelator in both the U.S. and the European Union
