On-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), and AD [7-13]. The concept that chronic injury caused by exposure to alkylating agents could result in malignancy and/or tissue degeneration is not far-fetched given the facts that: 1) chronic exposures to tobacco nitrosamines cause both lung cancer and emphysema; and 2) treatment with streptozotocin (STZ), a nitrosamine-related compound, causes hepatocellular

Res of AD cerebellar atrophy include, reductions in Purkinje cell population, atrophy of the molecular and granule cell layers [68], increased amyloid deposition and gliosis in the cortex [69]; increased ubiquitin-immunoreactivity in senile plaques and degenerating neurites [70]; extensive abnormalities in dendritic spine density and synaptic structure in vestibulocerebellar, visual, and auditory

A common theme resonating from these unnecessary lifestyle trends is that we have inadver

S described elsewhere [79]. For molecular and biochemical assays, cerebella were snap-frozen in a dry ice-methanol bath and stored at -80 . We studied cerebellar tissue because the cerebellum: 1) requires intact insulin/IGF signaling to maintain its structural and functional integrity [80,81]; 2) is severely damaged by i.c.-STZ mediated neurodegeneration [19,22]; 3) although relatively spared, it
