📚 Finished reading: The End of Alzheimer’s by Dr. Dale Bredesen ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Recommended. Even though I am not at higher genetic risk, I’ve ordered this book as a reference, due to the depth of cognitive health information included.

Notes are available in my digital garden.

@toddgrotenhuis it's looking a lot like a digital garden. Pretty cool what you can do with Craft.

As for the book, it's amazing how inflammation is once again listed as one of the main causes of it. The book that I just finished reading on cholesterol, The Great Cholesterol Myth, also lists inflammation as one of the main causes of heart disease. Your notes also point to sugar being a problem, and limiting sugar intake as a recommendation. The same thing is said in The Great Cholesterol Myth. Even though they are different books covering different diseases, we all end up with the same advice. Limit carbs and lower or avoid sugar intake to reduce inflammation.

@Dino yep, seeing this trend in other books I’ve been reading, too!

It’s the simple carbs and insulin resistance that are driving metabolic syndrome and many of our chronic diseases.

Cortisol (and thus stress) also play a part in insulin resistance (etc.)

@toddgrotenhuis sounds interesting. I’ll take look at your notes later, but also craft not roam eh?

@ChrisJWilson yeah...it seems to be the one that is “sticking” for me after trying multiple tools (incl. Roam, Obsidian, Notion, wikis, various Zettelkasten tools).

Easy to work with on any Apple device, isn’t ugly to me, and has most of the key features I want (either now or on the short pipeline).

@ChrisJWilson oh, easiest to get things “in”, too. Share sheet and mobile apps are a huge difference for an “all-in” tool since I’m not always in front of a full browser.

@toddgrotenhuis @ChrisJWilson There are too many cool tools out there!!! Making it really hard to just pick one and go with it...

@Munish typo on the first question? Can you restate?

@toddgrotenhuis sorry, a very late night question. I was asking how you are using the tagging feature?

toddgrotenhuis

@Munish ahh! Tags are not technically a feature! Explanation:

Since Craft has links & backlinks (but you can’t see the backlink references in a shared doc, yet, though it’s on the roadmap), I’ve been starting a lot of my docs, pages, and subpages with “tags”, which are just links to container or topic pages that I’ve made.

@toddgrotenhuis excellent stuff. Thanks for the explanation.
