A Tribute to “Bud” Dr. Richard Veech, the Discoverer of the D Beta Hydroxy Butyrate

A goodbye to a great mentor, colleague and friend.


Joanne Fay Gill

joanne 1Joanne Fay Gill passed away on July 5, 2019 after a long road combating Alzheimer’s brain degeneration.
She was one of four founding members of the YuFoundation.org beginning in 2006.

Ironically, now we are on the verge of understanding one of the earlier dysfunctions of Alzheimer brain metabolism with the research done by Dr. Stephen Cunnane and Dr. Richard Veech and Dr. Mary Newport with the generous financial support from Andre Chagnon whose wife was also afflicted with the same problem.

We now have the Beta Hydroxybutyrate ester molecule discovered by Veech of the NIH and already proved that intake of coconut oil, specifically caprylic fatty acid, intake with resultant production of your own beta hydroxybutyrate ketone can offset the early damages of the Alzheimer’s brain from its inability to use glucose sugar as fuel ten years, (10 years) before memory loss confirmed on PET / FDG scans first documented by Cunnane of Canada. All inflammation and end products residual may be after the metabolic fuel defect.

We could not save our beloved Joanne but the rest of the world are benefiting already from her generosity and kindness.

We miss her everyday!

George Yu MD, president of the YuFoundation.org 7/15/2019
