Book Will Benefit Alzheimer’s Disease Advocacy
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 by 2050, if not sooner. Adding to the momentum is the fact that most forms of brain disease are transmissible. Thanks to misinformation and the mismanagement of infectious waste and bodily fluids, people of all ages are now exposed to an expanding spectrum of brain disease. Defending yourself with facts and smart choices is your best hope.
- Women are contracting neurodegenerative disease at twice the rate of men (most caregivers are women);
- Spouses of those with brain disease are six times more likely to contract the disease (it’s an infectious disease);
- People in Finland, Iceland, Sweden and the United States have the highest prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease. Rates in North Dakota, South Dakota and Washington rival the highest rates in the world; and
- The mismanagement of infectious waste is playing a significant role in the uncontrollable spread of prion disease among people and wildlife. The risk to livestock is being ignored. Keep reading to learn why sick deer and elk are like canaries in a coal mine.
Adding to the madness is the fact that physicians are withholding millions of 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. Unfortunately, this mismanagement is just the tip of an iceberg.
