Share this one  far and wide and let #google know what we think. Thumbs down.

IRON - High levels of iron in the brain are linked with Alzheimer's disease. Iron is a metal, once it is in the body it never exits the body, it builds up. (And also copper, and zinc build up see the links below)

People in general are over dozing on iron these days

Myelin is produced by cells called oligodendrocytes. These cells, along with myelin, have the highest levels of iron of any cells in the brain, Bartzokis says, and circumstantial evidence has long supported the possibility that brain iron levels might be a risk factor for age-related diseases like Alzheimer's. Although iron is essential for cell function, too much of it can promote oxidative damage, to which the brain is especially vulnerable.

**That explains why the Indian population have the lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the World, because the majority of Indians are strict vegetarians, and the fact that most of their cooking includes cream and diary products which contains 'oxalates' that stop and inhibit iron being absorbed the body. Eggs contain phosvitin, a protein compound that binds iron molecules together and prevents the body from absorbing iron from foods. Milk prevents your body from absorbing adequate amounts of iron. Calcium stops and inhibits iron, calcium rich foods are -  yogurt, cheese, sardines, canned salmon, tofu, broccoli, almonds, figs, turnip greens. Also oxalates can also be found in spinach, kale, beets, nuts, chocolate, wheat bran, rhubarb, strawberries and herbs such as oregano, basil, parsley, lentils, peas and tea.
In the current study, Bartzokis and his colleagues tested their hypothesis that elevated tissue iron caused the tissue breakdown associated with Alzheimer's disease. They targeted the vulnerable hippocampus, a key area of the brain involved in the formation of memories, and compared it to the thalamus, which is relatively spared by Alzheimer's until the very late stages of disease.
The researchers used an MRI technique that can measure the amount of brain iron in ferritin, a protein that stores iron, in 31 patients with Alzheimer's and 68 healthy control subjects.
In the presence of diseases like Alzheimer's, as the structure of cells breaks down, the amount of water increases in the brain, which can mask the detection of iron, according to Bartzokis.
"It is difficult to measure iron in tissue when the tissue is already damaged," he said. "But the MRI technology we used in this study allowed us to determine that the increase in iron is occurring together with the tissue damage. We found that the amount of iron is increased in the hippocampus and is associated with tissue damage in patients with Alzheimer's but not in the healthy older individuals — or in the thalamus. So the results suggest that iron accumulation may indeed contribute to the cause of Alzheimer's disease."

"The accumulation of iron in the brain may be influenced by modifying environmental factors, such as how much red meat and iron dietary supplements we consume and, in women, having hysterectomies before menopause," he said.
In addition, he noted, medications that chelate and remove iron from tissue are being developed by several pharmaceutical companies as treatments for the disorder. This MRI technology may allow doctors to determine who is most in need of such treatments.

Gillian Triggs did a perfectly good job in her report it is just that Abbott cannot accept criticism as he is the worst kind of Narcissistic Personality disorder -  
    "" A. Significant impairments in personality functioning manifested by:
     1. Impairments in self functioning (a or b):
    a. Identity: Excessive reference to others for self-definition and self-esteem regulation; exaggerated self-appraisal may be inflated or deflated, or vacillate between extremes; emotional regulation mirrors fluctuations in self-esteem.
    b. Self-direction: Goal-setting is based on gaining approval from others; personal standards are unreasonably high in order to see oneself as exceptional, or too low based on a sense of entitlement; often unaware of own motivations. AND
     2. Impairments in interpersonal functioning (a or b):
    a. Empathy: Impaired ability to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others; excessively attuned to reactions of others, but only if perceived as relevant to self; over- or underestimate of own effect on others.
    b. Intimacy: Relationships largely superficial and exist to serve self-esteem regulation; mutuality constrained by little genuine interest in others' experiences and predominance of a need for personal gain
B. Pathological personality traits in the following domain:
Antagonism, characterized by:
    a. Grandiosity: Feelings of entitlement, either overt or covert; self-centeredness; firmly holding to the belief that one is better than others; condescending toward others.
    b. Attention seeking: Excessive attempts to attract and be the focus of the attention of others; admiration seeking. ""  

In other words he is a self centred self serving grandiosity seeking  -  Lacking in any sense of empathy or interest in his responsibilities of serving Australia or Australians beyond ensuring a continuity of his own status and position of "authority"....
