Not only tastes good rhubarb

We stole rhubarb from the Asia and an Asian child reports rhubarb treats Alzheimer's.
VANCOUVER-(Business Wire)-April 9, 2009 - Innovative research by a 17- year-old Surrey BC, Sands Secondary School student that could lead to an improved treatment for Alzheimer╣s disease has earned first place in the 2009 Sanofi-Aventis BioTalent Challenge (SABC) in the British Columbia region.
Grade 12 student Yang (Linda) Liu won the $3000 cash prize with a study into the tangling of a protein that causes Alzheimer╣s and many other neurological diseases. She will travel to Ottawa to compete in the national SABC competition May 5th to be judged by a panel of experts at the National Research Council. The national winners will be announced at a ceremony in Ottawa on May 6th.
Ms. Liu discovered that rhubarb extract possesses the ability to inhibit the clumping of a tau protein. Aggregation of this tau protein is implicated in the cause of many neurological diseases, among them Alzheimer╣s, ALS, Parkinson╣s, and others, and this research has potential applications in their treatment.
