Alzheimer’s, is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that usually starts slowly and gradually worsens over time. It is the cause of 60–70% of cases of dementia. The most common early symptom is difficulty in remembering recent events.
What Are the Signs of Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease (AD)?
Dementia is a general term for the loss of memory functions or other mental abilities that affect your daily life. You or a loved one may be developing early onset AD if you experience any of the following: Memory loss, Difficulty planning and solving problems, Vision loss…
What you can do to prevent Alzheimer’s
Alzheimer’s doesn’t have to be your brain’s destiny, says neuroscientist and author of “Still Alice,” Lisa Genova. She shares the latest science investigating the disease — and some promising research on what each of us can do to build an Alzheimer’s-resistant brain…
Infectious Theory Of Alzheimer’s Disease Draws Fresh Interest
Dr. Leslie Norins is willing to hand over $1 million of his own money to anyone who can clarify something: Is Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia worldwide, caused by a germ?
By “germ” he means microbes like bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. In other words, Norins, a physician turned publisher, wants to know if Alzheimer’s is infectious…
Brain Disease Surging Globally
Neurodegenerative disease has been surging around the world for the past 30 years. It’s the fastest-growing cause of death and it will soon be the leading cause of death. Infectious waste plays a significant role in the equation.
Alzheimer’s disease alone is taking the lives of 50-100 million people around the world now. Millions will die of the disease this year, while many millions more will be diagnosed, misdiagnosed and undiagnosed. The epidemic is more severe in some countries than others. Supposedly, no one knows the scope of the problem. The evidence being swept under the rug and the global misinformation campaign suggests otherwise.
A variety of factors can trigger neurodegenerative disease, including genetics, head trauma and neurotoxins.
Despite millions of deaths, experts suggest that the prevalence of the disease will quadruple by 2050, if not sooner. Unfortunately, there is a growing stack of evidence that Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and other brain diseases are transmissible. Deadly, self-replicating proteins appear to be one of the common threads. Similar proteins appear to be associated with autism and the childhood cases of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.
Research Project Appears To Be Reversing Effects Of Alzheimer’s
There could be a new weapon in the battle against the brain-robbing disease of Alzheimer’s. With the aging population, Alzheimer’s numbers continue to grow as the disease slowly robs memory and thousands of lives. Currently, treatments are limited, but there is some promising research, including one project that appears to be reversing the effects of Alzheimer’s…
Discovery of previously unknown mechanism may someday aid in battle against Alzheimer’s
The body’s ability to adapt to changing conditions and shifting physiologic demands is essential to its survival. To ensure cellular performance and the health of the entire organism, each cell must be able to dispose of damaged or unnecessary proteins.
Now, a study from the Blavatnik Institute at Harvard Medical School (HMS) shows that intense exercise, fasting, and an array of hormones can activate cells’ built-in protein-disposal systems and enhance their ability to purge defective, toxic, or unneeded proteins…
