SALT LAKE CITY — Ethnobotanist Paul Cox and film writer Bo Landin are perplexing to solve a poisonous puzzle. Could vast algal blooms, that sealed Utah Lake final year, be a risk cause for Alzheimer’s?

“We didn’t know how prolonged this was going to take,” pronounced producer/director Landin. “We didn’t know where in a universe this would take us.”

The film, narrated by Harrison Ford, shows how Cox complicated villagers in Guam who had 100 times a rate of an ALS-type disease. He traced it to a venom constructed by cyanobacteria in a immature trash on lakes and reservoirs.

Though other scientists have been doubtful of a couple in a past, Cox says investigate during Dartmouth Medical School is proof his theories.

“It looks now like there unequivocally is a couple between bearing to cyanobacterial blooms and risk of removing ALS,” pronounced Cox, whose company, Brain Chemistry Labs, grown a diagnosis for Alzheimer’s that is now in clinical trials during Dartmouth. “Cross your fingers,” he said.

Through ongoing bearing to a toxin, if we have a predisposition, they trust we boost your risk. “Genetics loads a gun though sourroundings pulls a trigger,” Landin said.

“The vast doubt is could this also interpret into an increasing risk of Alzheimer’s?” Cox said.

They trafficked to Okinawa and pronounced they met 100-year-old women who are healthy and active, with pointy minds giveaway of neurodegenerative diseases. Cox and Landin trust it’s since of what they’re eating.

“Their food store is like a pharmacy. They usually eat these things like honeyed potato and vast brownish-red algae,” Landin said.

Their diets enclose an amino poison called L-Serine, that Cox believes prevents a mind diseases and slows progression. It also comes in a addition accessible during incomparable health food stores. Landin pronounced he stirs a powder into a comfortable potion of H2O and drinks it.

Cox pronounced his investigate is not usually a warning, though a summary of wish for a millions of people who are suffering.

The film, “Toxic Puzzle- Hunt for a Hidden Killer,” premieres during a City Library Tuesday during 7:00 p.m. Admission is free.
