Wastewater Treatment Plants Spreading Brain Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease An Infectious Disease Neurodegenerative diseases are the fastest-growing causes of death around the world. The mismanagement of infectious waste is contributing to the epidemic. Dr. Stanley Prusiner earned a Nobel Prize in 1997 for his pioneering research on deadly prions—an infectious form of protein that connects a deadly spectrum disease called transmissible spongiform … Continue reading Wastewater Treatment Plants Spreading Brain Disease

Microcephaly One Of Many Symptoms Caused By Zika Virus

Zika Virus A Byproduct Of Infectious Waste Published In MedScape Zika infection can have devastating effects on the central nervous system of people of all ages. The infection can cause a wide range of brain abnormalities, including paralysis and death in adults, according to two new studies from Brazil. Infection with mosquito-borne Zika virus is … Continue reading Microcephaly One Of Many Symptoms Caused By Zika Virus

Wildlife Contracting Brain Disease From Humans

Chronic Wasting Disease Further Proof Of Infectious Disease Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and other forms of neurodegenerative disease are collectively becoming the leading cause of death around the world. Brain disease also continues to expand in wildlife. Is there a connection? Keep reading to find out why: Alzheimer’s disease is part of a spectrum disease known as … Continue reading Wildlife Contracting Brain Disease From Humans

Researchers Examine Infectious Proteins In Parkinson’s Disease

Protein Aggregation Similar To Alzheimer’s Disease The nerve cells of some people with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) can accumulate clumps of a protein called SOD1. A mutation in the SOD1 gene contributes to contraction of the disease, but it has not been clear if the characteristic clumps of the protein associated with the faulty gene … Continue reading Researchers Examine Infectious Proteins In Parkinson’s Disease

Microcephaly Adds To Global Surge In Brain Disease

Microcephaly, Zika Virus Fueled By Sewage Brain disease is consuming record numbers of people around the world right now. Microcephaly in infants is just the latest example. Microcephaly is a nonspecific term used to describe a small head circumference, and can be caused by maternal exposure to a variety of pathogens and toxins, including HIV, alcohol, … Continue reading Microcephaly Adds To Global Surge In Brain Disease

Researchers Find More Evidence Of Alzheimer’s Disease Transmissibility

Prion Theory Advances Alzheimer’s Disease Research Neurological diseases known collectively as dementia are the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. The epidemic is spreading exponentially because of misinformation and mismanagement within every nation. Patients, caregivers, family members and millions of other stakeholders deserve the truth. Only a decade ago, the idea that Alzheimer’s disease might be … Continue reading Researchers Find More Evidence Of Alzheimer’s Disease Transmissibility

Faroe Researcher Connects Whale Consumption To Parkinson’s Disease

Whales An Indicator Of Neurological Disease Upstream Sick animals and sick people can tell us a lot about the health of our environment. A study in Denmark is raising red flags. There could be a common thread between dead whales and sick humans. Keep reading to find out: Why people with neurodegenerative disease are contagious; … Continue reading Faroe Researcher Connects Whale Consumption To Parkinson’s Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease Surging Across Scandinavia

Sewage Sludge Contaminating Food, Water Alzheimer’s disease is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. People living across Scandinavia have some of the highest prevalence of the disease in the world. At least 50 million people already have Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. It’s vastly undiagnosed and misdiagnosed. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, doctors are withholding millions of additional … Continue reading Alzheimer’s Disease Surging Across Scandinavia

Alzheimer’s Disease Related To Chronic Wasting Disease

All Mammals Appear Vulnerable To Prion Epidemic Chronic wasting disease (CWD) is ravaging wildlife in many regions across North America. It’s part of a larger epidemic of neurological disease that is killing millions of people, wildlife and livestock around the world. Once again, wildlife are serving as the proverbial canary in a coal mine. CWD is … Continue reading Alzheimer’s Disease Related To Chronic Wasting Disease

Many Factors Causing Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease Epidemic Gaining Momentum Through Prion Contagion There are more than 45 million people dying of Alzheimer’s disease today. According to official estimates, there are almost 8 million new cases of dementia diagnosed around the globe each year—a new case every four seconds. The actual number of cases, including undiagnosed and misdiagnosed people could be … Continue reading Many Factors Causing Alzheimer’s Disease
