Disrupting two toxic proteins that damage memory may reverse the symptoms of Alzheimer's, researchers claim. Evidence is mounting that amyloid beta and tau play a role in the memory-robbing disorder - but how they interact has always been a mystery. Studies on mice and human brain tissue have now found the proteins work together to suppress key genes in the brain. Academics said this disrupts messages being sent between brain cells, potentially explaining the difficulties Alzheimer's patients face. The research also found they could reduce some of the symptoms of Alzheimer's in mice by genetically reducing levels of tau. Disrupting two toxic proteins that damage memory can reverse the symptoms of Alzheimer's, scientists have found in mice studies. Pictured, illustration of brain cells being killed.

Eating a flour made from passionfruit peel may stop mice from becoming fat and counteract the effects of a bad diet, a study has suggested. Mice gorged on fatty foods for 10 weeks in a laboratory. However, some were also fed the grounded down skin of the exotic fruit. Results showed rodents given the flour weighed 14 per cent less at the end of the experiment. They also had 22 per cent less body fat.
