Help Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease
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.
Experts suggest that the prevalence of brain disease will quadruple soon. Adding to the momentum is the fact that most forms of brain disease are transmissible. Defending yourself with facts and smart choices is your best hope.
Adding to the madness is the fact that physicians are withholding millions of Alzheimer’s disease 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.
