Break the silence on persecuted Christians

MEP Bert-Jan Ruissen held a conference and exhibition at the European Parliament to denounce the silence surrounding the suffering of persecuted Christians worldwide. The EU must take stronger action against violations of freedom of religion, especially in Africa where lives are lost due to this silence.

Biologists have discovered that canine dementia has similarities to Alzheimer’s disease in humans, writes Rambler.

The first symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease in humans are usually disturbed sleep patterns. These changes are thought to be the result of damage to the areas of the brain that regulate sleep. In addition, the number of slow delta volts in the brain is less.

In the course of the work, the biologists found that a similar reduction in sleep time and delta brain wave period was observed in dogs with the equivalent of dementia, Canine Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome.

In the future, the study authors plan to determine whether the disorders in humans and dogs are indeed similar. If this is confirmed, the scientists allow the animals to be used as models to study Alzheimer’s disease.
