Scientists have discovered a gene that increases intelligence.
I’m keeping my eyes on this news.
Klotho boosts brain skills such as thinking, learning and memory.
That sounds great for those of us who have a functioning hippocampus and firing neurons that connect and speak to each other.
But, what could it mean for those in the throws of dementia?
It’s a spark of hope and it looks like this:
- The U.S. study found the protein called klotho boosts brain skills
- Researchers found that this protein could raise IQ by up to six points
- It also raised the possibility that a ‘smart’ drug could become available
Could this be the golden ticket to eliminating dementia?
If so, I hope it is available soon.
