IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: RANJAN DUARA, MD - SCIENTIST

Rate this Entry

Indian-born physician Ranjan Duara's groundbreaking research made headlines around the world today and probably was greeted by groans from many. The Mount Sinai Medical Center researcher led a team that has discovered that people who are prone to Alzheimer's Disease can actually hasten the disease's onset if they smoke or drink too much. The New York Times reports that Dr. Duara has two explanations for what may be happening. First is the role of smoking in cardiovascular disease. The second is a link between smoking and oxidative stress, an increase in damaging free radicals in the body.

    This is a terrific tribute to a very insightful and gifted neurologist who does not get the credit he deserves! If it weren't for him, there would be nowhere for purveyors of MCI definitions to ply their wares! Congratulations, Ranjan!

    Perhaps the only positive aspect of the otherwise tragic task of watching my mother's gradual disappearance into dementia has been knowing that she has had Dr. Duara and his staff to monitor her care over the years. He is a beacon of light to those of us living in the shadow of this disease. Congratulations, and THANKS!
