On the last page of the July/Aug 2009 issue, the article “The Cerebellum Blues” has a profound error, I believe. It says, “…blood is toxic to the brain. The very stuff so essential to life also kills brain cells.”

The last I'd heard, the neurons in the brain die without the oxygen and nutrients carried by the blood. Please clarify!
