This article describes how blocking ketoglutarate from neurons causes certain ones to die...the ones that die in Alzheimer's.

While researching sulfites, I had discovered that apparently sulfites also knock out production of ketoglutarate. Not sure what the implications are but it seems like a piece of the excitotoxic puzzle...

Holiday Cheers,
