Prions Highly Contagious Neurodegenerative disease is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. Because of the Alzheimer’s disease epidemic alone, it will soon be the leading cause of death.  The epidemiology has indicated that Alzheimer’s is a transmissible disease. A new study confirms that millions of those with the disease are infectious. Talk about inconvenient truth. […]

Preventing Plaque Formation Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of neurodegenerative disease are sparked by several factors, including genetics, head trauma and exposure to neurotoxins. Regardless of the initial spark, it leads to a cascade of protein formations in the brain–typically a response to inflammation. The protein formations add to the momentum of neurodegeneration. Controlling the […]

A Promising Treatment For Neurodegenerative Disease A diet containing compounds found in green tea and carrots reversed Alzheimer’s-like symptoms in mice genetically programmed to develop the disease, USC researchers announced. Researchers emphasize that the study, recently published in theJournal of Biological Chemistry, was in mice, and many mouse discoveries never translate into human treatments. Nevertheless, […]

Dental Plaque Related To Mental Plaque There are several factors that can promote Alzheimer’s disease, including genetics, diet, exercise, head trauma and exposure to neurotoxins. However, researchers have provided the strongest evidence to date that a bacterium involved in periodontitis contributes to the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease is characterized by the salient inflammatory […]

Doctors Defending Themselves, Not Others Editor’s Note: In April 2019, Dr. Stanley Prusiner published conclusive evidence that Alzheimer’s disease is a prion disease. The implications are far-reaching. It impacts 50-100 million victims, their family, friends and caregivers. It’s time to reform policies and practices on many fronts to protect public health and animal health. Neurodegenerative […]

Reforms Can Save Lives Neurodegenerative disease and autism have been surging around the world for the past 30 years. A man-made environmental disaster is creating a public health disaster that’s still unfolding in many ways in most nations. Neurotoxins are driving the epidemic more than age–in some countries more than others. Teenagers are now dying of Creutzfeldt-Jakob […]
