Spouses Of Those With Brain Disease More Likely To Contract Brain Disease Millions of people are becoming caregivers for friends and family members with Alzheimer’s disease. It’s a silent epidemic that’s creating family crises around the world. In addition to the shock of the sudden dependency, at least some caregivers (family members and professionals) are

Raises Concerns About Prion Pathways Researchers have found abnormal prion protein in the skin of 23 people who died from Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD). Meanwhile exposing mice to skin tissue taken from the CJD patients caused them to develop prion disease. The study has raised questions about the possibility of prion diseases being transmitted during medical

Caregivers Caught In The Crossfire Of Misinformation, Mismanagement Neurodegenerative disease is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. Alzheimer’s disease alone is taking the lives of 50-100 million people now. Despite millions of Alzheimer’s-related fatalities annually, experts suggest that the prevalence of the disease among the living will quadruple by 2050, if not sooner. Some advocates are

Science, Evidence Proving Transmissibility If you think that you and your family are immune to the surging epidemic of neurodegenerative disease, think again. Neurodegenerative disease, including Alzheimer’s disease, is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. It’s getting worse every day thanks to mismanagement and misinformation. Infectious proteins known as prions are involved with most forms of neurodegenerative disease.

Neurodegenerative Disease The Fastest Growing Cause Of Death Death rates from heart disease and cancer are dropping globally due to advances in nutrition, medicine and disease management. Meanwhile, neurodegenerative disease is exploding because it’s highly contagious in most cases. In the U.S., deaths from Alzheimer’s disease increased 71 percent from 2000 to 2013, while those attributed to

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

Parkinson’s Disease Spreads With Help From Proteins In Parkinson’s disease, the protein alpha-synuclein aggregates within neurons of patients and appears to propagate across interconnected areas of the brain. How this happens remains largely unknown. It has been proposed that alpha-synuclein may behave like a prion–a pathological form of protein capable of changing the conformation of normal
