Possible link between copper and Alzheimer's

Posted: Updated:

Researchers say there could be a link between copper and Alzheimer's Disease. They say the common mineral could prevent toxins from leaving the brain.

The findings were published in proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and recorded after tests on lab mice.

Copper is found in everything from drinking water to red meat. But scientists say don't stay away from copper. The mineral is important for the body's nervous system development, bone growth and hormone secretion.
