Alzheimer’s Disease Is Transmissible Through Many Environmental Vectors
Unfortunately, Alzheimer’s disease is a member of an aggressive family of neurodegenerative diseases known as Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy (TSE). The operative word is “transmissible.”
TSEs include Alzheimer’s disease, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, Huntington’s disease and possibly Parkinson’s disease. TSEs also include mad cow disease, chronic wasting disease, scrapie and other related diseases in mammals. It appears that no mammals are immune from the epidemic.
There is very little difference, if any, between these diseases. There is no cure and there is no species barrier. Doctors and even neurologists can’t tell the difference between Alzheimer’s disease, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease. They’re guessing with each so-called diagnosis, which is really just a process of elimination. Once all other options are eliminated, it’s just a question of which of these TSEs they call it.
Unfortunately, the protocol for patient care is vastly different for CJD and these other diseases. CJD is handled with the respect that a prion disease demands. Hospitals and even coroners handle CJD with a wide berth, if at all. Hospitals that have erred have been sued for exposing other patients to equipment that cannot be sterilized. All TSEs, including Alzheimer’s disease, demand the same respect. Meanwhile, the epidemic spreads.
TSEs are caused by a deadly protein called a prion (PREE-on). Prion disease is unstoppable and the pathogen spreads through bodily fluids and cell tissue. Prions linger in the environment, homes, hospitals, nursing homes, dental offices and many other places infinitely. They migrate, mutate and multiply with unparalleled efficiency. Prions defy all attempts at sterilization and inactivation.
People and animals with prion disease represent an environmental nightmare. These killer proteins are unstoppable. Public and private protocols demand the truth and reform to help stop the Alzheimer’s epidemic.
