Introduction

Prevention. Treatment. Reform.

Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and other forms of neurodegenerative disease are collectively becoming the leading cause of death around the world. Alzheimer’s disease alone is killing 50-100 million people now. Millions more will contract the disease this year, while just as many will go undiagnosed and misdiagnosed. The vast majority of cases are preventable.

Alzheimer's disease epidemic

Experts suggest that the prevalence of brain disease will quadruple by 2050, if not sooner. Adding to the momentum is the fact that most forms of brain disease are transmissible. Thanks to misinformation and the mismanagement of infectious waste and bodily fluids, people of all ages are now exposed to an expanding spectrum of brain disease. Defending yourself with facts and smart choices is your best hope.

  • Women are contracting neurodegenerative disease at twice the rate of men (most caregivers are women);
  • Spouses of those with brain disease are six times more likely to contract the disease (it’s an infectious disease)
  • People in Finland, Iceland, Sweden and the United States have the highest prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease. Rates in North Dakota, South Dakota and Washington rival the highest rates in the world; and
  • The mismanagement of infectious waste is playing a significant role in the uncontrollable spread of prion disease among people and wildlife. The risk to livestock is being ignored. Keep reading to learn why sick deer and elk are like canaries in a coal mine.

Adding to the madness is the fact that physicians are withholding millions of diagnoses from patients and their families. It’s saving insurance companies billions each year, while driving unprepared families into bankruptcy. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, physicians in the U.S. only inform 45 percent of patients about their Alzheimer’s diagnosis. The same pattern of suppression is likely at work in most countries. Unfortunately, this mismanagement is just the tip of an iceberg.

Prions and Alzheimer's disease

The most common forms of neurodegenerative disease include Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, ALS and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease–the most aggressive and infectious of them all. According to Nobel Prize Laureate Stanley Prusiner, these brain diseases are part of the same disease spectrum—prion disease. It’s also known as transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE). The operative word is transmissible.

Death rates from heart disease and cancer are dropping in most countries due to advances in nutrition, medicine and disease management. Meanwhile, neurodegenerative disease is spreading exponentially. In the U.S., deaths attributed to Alzheimer’s disease increased 71 percent from 2000 to 2013, while those attributed to heart disease decreased 14 percent. Similar trends are taking place around the world.

Alzheimer's disease infectious disease

Pandora’s Box

Many factors are contributing to the epidemic. Unfortunately, it appears that Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s are just as infectious as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. The bodily fluids of people with prion disease are infectious. Prions are the X factor in the global epidemic. 

Prion disease is a spectrum disease that varies in severity. It also varies depending on which region of the brain is impacted first. It affects most, if not all, mammals. Prion disease causes memory loss, impaired coordination, and abnormal movements. Prions are an infectious form of glycoprotein that can propagate throughout the body. TSE surveillance is important for public health and food safety because TSEs have the potential of crossing from animals to humans, as seen with the spread of mad cow disease. TSEs also have the potential of being transmitted from humans to animals. The most common example is chronic wasting disease among deer species.

biosolids land application contaminates food water

Researchers have more questions than answers, but we know that neurotoxins, head trauma and genetics can all trigger brain disease. Unfortunately, that’s where our knowledge gets fuzzy. Most diagnoses are a process of elimination. After eliminating all other possibilities, the guesswork begins:

  • If the patient has a memory disorder, it’s Alzheimer’s disease.
  • If they have a movement disorder, it’s Parkinson’s disease.
  • If the patient shows both symptoms, flip a coin.
  • If they ever had a concussion, it’s possibly CTE.
  • If the person is incapacitated, it’s Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD).

Experts claim that at least 25 percent of Alzheimer’s diagnoses are not Alzheimer’s disease. These misdiagnoses are actually CJD, which is further up the prion spectrum. CJD is extremely infectious to caregivers and loved ones. Millions of cases of deadly CJD are being misdiagnosed as Alzheimer’s disease. Millions of patients and caregivers are being misinformed, misguided and exposed to an aggressive disease. Misdiagnosis and misinformation regarding prion disease is a matter of life and death. The mismanagement doesn’t end here.

It’s not known which patients with brain disease become infectious or when. Savvy neurologists won’t touch patients with these symptoms because of the risks. Unfortunately, caregivers aren’t warned accordingly.

caregivers Alzheimer's disease

“CJD behaves like Alzheimer’s disease on steroids,” said Dr. Jennifer Majersik, an associate professor of neurology at the University of Utah.

Misdiagnoses and misguidance represents an exposure issue for the public at large. It also represents malpractice and liability issues for doctors. Given the mass confusion, high stakes and high costs, some health providers are avoiding diagnoses altogether.

According to research from John Hopkins, Duke University, and Utah State University, these caregivers are 600 percent more likely to contract neurological disease.

Prions are unstoppable. The pathogen spreads through the bodily fluids and cell tissue of its victims. The blood, saliva, mucus, milk, urine and feces of victims are infectious. Wastewater treatment doesn’t touch prions. In fact, these facilities are now helping incubate and distribute prions via solids and wastewater released. Once unleashed on the environment, prions remain infectious. They migrate, mutate and multiply as they infect crops, water supplies and more.

biosolids land application sewage sludge

When the U.S. government enacted the Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002, it classified prions as select agents that pose an extreme risk to food, water and much more. Unfortunately, the CDC quietly took prions off the list because the regulation criminalized entire industries and several reckless practices.

Unfortunately, prions linger in the environment, homes, hospitals, nursing homes, dental offices and beyond infinitely. Prions defy all attempts at sterilization and inactivation.

Prions shed from humans are the most deadly. They demand more respect than radiation. They’re being ignored by regulators and industry alike. As such, food and water sources are being contaminated with the deadliest forms of prions. Municipal water systems can’t stop them from reaching water taps in millions of homes. Filtration doesn’t phase them.

The deadly prion spectrum also includes mad cow disease and chronic wasting disease in deer, elk and moose. Scientists have shown that infected tissues can transmit prion disease between animals. There is no species barrier. A new study published in the journal Nature renews concern about the transmissibility of Alzheimer’s disease between people. A second study by the same scientist in early 2016 adds to the stack of evidence. There is no evidence that Alzheimer’s disease is not infectious.

Although there are many causes and pathways contributing to prion disease, many pathways are being mismanaged around the globe. Not only are homes and hospitals exposed to the prion pathogen, so are entire sewage treatment systems. Wastewater treatment plants are prion incubators. Sewage sludge and wastewater pumped out spread the disease.

Sewage treatment plants can’t detect or stop prions. Just ask the U.S. EPA. Dumping sewage sludge (biosolids) from billions of people on land and at sea spreads prions far and wide. It also spreads heavy metals, radioactive waste, carcinogens, pharmaceuticals and more.

food and water contamination cause neurological disease

Sewage sludge, biosolids, and reclaimed wastewater are recycling prions from victims into our food and water supplies. We’re dumping killer proteins on crops, parks, golf courses, gardens, ski areas, school grounds and beyond. Wind, rain and irrigation spread these contaminants and many more throughout our communities and watersheds. 

The risk assessments prepared by the U.S. EPA for wastewater treatment and sewage sludge are flawed. Many risks are not addressed, including prions and radioactive waste. They don’t mention prions or radiation because there is no answer. Most nations are making the same mistake. Failure to account for known risks is negligent. Crops for humans and livestock grown grown in sewage sludge absorb prions and become infectious. We’re all vulnerable to Alzheimer’s and other forms of prion disease right now due to widespread denial and mismanagement. It’s time to stop the land application of sewage sludge (LASS) in all nations. Safer alternatives exist.

Food Safety. Wellness. Reform.

Some foods increase your risk of contracting brain disease, while some foods help prevent it. Other foods offer the best hope for effective treatment. Most drugs offer no help at all. Drug companies are making billions selling placebos. Targeted nutrition is our best hope, but we also need to know which foods to avoid. Order the eBook now and learn how to:

  • Avoid neurotoxins in food, water and the circles of life;
  • Prevent brain disease with targeted nutritional guidance;
  • Effectively treat brain disease with nutritional therapies. It’s the most logical and comprehensive nutritional advice available for neurological disease; and
  • Keep caregivers safe. Misinformation and misdiagnoses are putting us at risk.

    Good article. I am facing some of these issues as well.

    They are pioneering a study here in Australia which combines tumeric and a couple of other traditional chinese herbs in a precise combination which has shown great promise. I’m thinking that we all need to incorporate more tumeric in our diets as a precaution. My grandmother is 89 and has been suffering from dementia for about 4 years. My problem is that my family have always kissed each other on the lips which I don’t like, I prefer the air kiss to the side. They always manage to get me though, even if I turn my face to the side. I’m hoping that my mother hasn’t continued the tradition when she visits my Nana at the nursing home.

    Digging deeper into my thoughts, I found that I was wanting to express this gratitude I am feeling for those who have lost their battle to ALS. I am saddened that anyone had to lose their life to this nasty disease and it pains me that so many suffered a horrible fight and continue to this day to loose to this battle. I want to give thanks to all the amazing and courageous fighters that have faced this disease head on, who endured so much and gave a strong fight to the end. These people paved the way for all of us now who are getting cured…including myself.

  6. Brian says:

    Alzheimer’s is caused by Infectious Disease in most, if not all cases. An inflamed brain becomes more inflamed with more bacterial growth. The so called “plauqes’ in an Alzheimer’s brain are Biofilms. The all common Lyme bacteria, now a proven biofilm infection, can be extremely difficult to treat when mature biofilms form. Biofilm infections are a bigger catastrophe than mutated bacteria, and the medical community doesn’t have a clue.

    The best “Alzheimer’s” lab? An Igenex Western blot

  8. Mary in CO says:

    Nutrition is very important, but not proven effective, it all is a crap shoot but we try to live the healthiest best life we can and hope for the best. There are so many neurological diseases and personally I believe we have only scratched the surface of understanding the brain. Part of the issue is looking at so many diseases separately, gathering limited grant dollars for a tiny piece of the puzzle. Alzheimers is a primary recipient, and yet other strains such as FTD, Lewy Body, are insidious too, but have limited research comparatively. Parkinsons, MS and Down Syndrome are related too. Try to pre-arrange for brain donation from a person with a neuro disease and no one wants it unless the terminal patient is in a specific study, or you pay for the autopsy and procedure; after years of huge expenses, most are unable to do that.

  9. Shane in Kansas says:

    Is a lot of the neurological disease in humans linked to aluminum?

    Can some of the increasing diagnoses be because we are looking more for it now? Classifying it?

    Can the increasing rate of diagnoses of neurological disease be related to a growing human population and people living longer, thus, more susceptible to disease?

    Is nature balancing the human population right under our noses and shifting the population to a “younger” population, just like what is thought is happening to deer/elk populations being affected by CWD?

    • Gary Chandler says:

      There are many factors associated with brain disease. Unfortunately, we are recycling the disease right into our food and water supplies thanks to reckless policies based on fake and narrow-minded science (corruption). Public servants around the world are selling out public health. The land application of sewage sludge also is contributing to the sickness among deer/elk/moose and other mammals (including sea mammals).

    • Kimberly Sias says:

      Boy are they. Along with the drs, FDA and big pharma. Lobbyists, Congress and your entire government. They can’t make money if they have no control.

  10. Felipe Uhlig says:

    Several neurodegenerative diseases are classified as proteopathies as they are associated with the aggregation of misfolded proteins .

  11. Excellent post. I’m facing many of these issues as well..
